My press for forming my holsters
I made my press based off the information from the Old Faithful website tutorials. I had some 1/2" plywood so I have used that. I would prefer to use MDF (medium density fiberboard) but my local big box had only 4x8 sheets. The foam was from some packing material in a box I had received. I use 1/2" plywood for the pistol form also.

I got the bar clamps on sale at $2.00 each at Harbor Freight.

RE: My press for forming my holsters
I like your ingenuity. I watched McGuyver when I was a kid and a lot of the pics I have seen of people making their own holsters definitely remind me of that. I like that Taurus, by the way. That is a nice looking pistol.

Nice budget setup. But why the cutout of the gun?

This post was very old so the op might not respond. The board cutout is for forming kydex for hybrid holsters or just to get the outer piece to cover the entire gun.
