I sketched out a new design, that is a mixture of my starfighter and the V-Hammer (derAndy).
A chunky Hammergrip with slender forktips.
Not the most elegant frame, but it fits pretty well to my needs. I named it the Crusader.:cool:
The core is made from odd-green juma and grey acrylic glas.
Cut some pipe.
Zap the sections with a heatgun.
Smoosh them with a brick or any other heavy object. Leave to cool for a few minutes.
They'll end up flat.
Now use heatgun again to bend to shape. Notice I am doing all this freehand. If you can arrange some stuff to act as a jig, you'll have...
I was asked by a friend to make them a hammer grip slingshot. Since it was supposed have a very slender grip, I opted to make two frames, just to make sure one of them fits.

I went searching in my local woods for forks, and after an...
Today I want to show you a frame that I made for a very dear friend of mine.

Once again, wood meets surgical steel.
My newest creation with clamps for the rubberbands and possibility of exchange the whole fork, leaving the same handle.
It took a lot of strenght to bend the high quality stainless steel. the for is atached with nuts to the handle grip, that has two long...
