Sometimes, instead of carrying a quiver on your bow or your back you just want to retrieve your arrows from the target and drop them in a standing quiver on the shooting line.
This fitting allows you to attach a 2" PVC pipe to a base to hold arrows on the archery range.
The jscad source is included in case you want to tweak to the shape. Of course you can just grab the STL and print it as is also.
To make a free standing range quiver...
- Print the thing
- Cut a length of 2in Schedule 40 PVC Pipe 18-20" long (depending on your arrow length and personal preference)
- Cut a wooden base. 6in x 6in seems to work well. I use 1in (3/4in nominal) pine
- Draw an X using the corners of the wooden base
- Position the fitting on the base so that the lines of the X pass through all 4 screw holes. This will center the fitting on the board
- Mark the locations of the screw holes
- Remove the fitting and drill pilot holes for the screws
- Attach the fitting to the base with suitable screws
- Coat the inside of the fitting with glue or epoxy
- Insert the PVC pipe, seating it fully in the fitting and then rotate the pipe half a turn or so to distribute the glue
