Hi, my dad has some makrolon lying around (about 3-4mm thick) that I want to use to make a rifle stock cheek piece. This means bending it over the current stock which is quite a tight radius (approx 1.5").

What is the right temperature for bending the makrolon? And will this bend ok?

The alternative is some 2-3mm makrolon which would bend easier but not as strong.

I was planning on making a mould out of wood then putting it in the oven slowly building up the heat and once formed slowly bringing it down again.
