    My 3rd generation DIY aluminum pumpaction repitition compact slingshot "device" is getting quite nasty (70Joule) and there might be possibilities to even improve it further. Especially the efficiency is actually only around 50% (due to cold rubber bands) and some havy rollers,..etc... As...

    Hi guys, I wanted to show off my first homemade slingshot fork. No idea what kind of wood that is, I have not checked for the tree it came from. I joined the forum to get some help with and show off the build of my arrow airgun. While I am missing some parts there, the pictures of slingshots...

    Hey guys! So I've been making crossbow-slingshots for about a month, all of them are self made (so I didn't just download stuff from the internet). I've been experimenting with different designs. The first one I made has quite a short draw-length, and I generally free-handed it (so no precise...

    Hi Guys, there are three more attempts from the past few days to build a natural slingshot that fit's to me. The wooden "V" is a gripless fork for shooting only in thumb & finger support style, I gave her strong bands for a strong guy. The second named Eagle, because the heck it is - isn't it...
  12. New project ideas
    Hello World, when I recently saw your "Wilma" video Jörg, I was instantly remembered of good old times. While laying in bed and just beginning to sleep at night, I then had some kind of "flashback" of an old video I saw. In 2012 I was watching one of your videos (idk what exact video) and...

    Hey, Y'All... This was a quick build as is with natties like this... didn't need to use the rasp much. Filled the cracks with fine gold glitter and CA... although I'm going to stick to mixing wood glue next time with the glitter as working with CA was messy... going along with the theme of...

    Hey, Y'All. I wanted to make another pinch-grip OTT like my other pinch-grip Juno so here she is and she is kind of feminine looking BUT there is something very eerie and perhaps sinister about this build. First, this was a very old standing dead tree alongside a prominent trail. It actually...

    I refinished an older build with TruOil and I'm digging the results. The bands are 1.25x8inch black Simpleshot, great for 5-15g ammo. It came off an old limb and I was skeptical but the core looked solid and this proved true after ripping through layers of crumbly wood and ancient worm...

    Hey y'all. I wanted to make another pinch-grip type of shooter because my only other one was my conus build (EGV). Plus, I haven't made any since last year so my craving to build was high. Madrona tree forks are the only deadwood fork I want to work on now. I've made about 10 so far and the...

    Here i am again, deep in SS fever. I had a table leg laying around, standard stuff, so i glued two pieces together to make it wide enough for a rambone design and drew the outline of the rambone. Tools used : handsaw, rasp, files, sandpaper and a handdril. It's not yet finished (ofcourse), i...

    Hello slingshot enthusiasts! A week ago or so i was making a crossbow, that caused me to stumble upon Jorg's channel and that quickly lead me to a small obsession with slingshots. So here i am, showing off my first slingshot ever made or even held. Next to showing off i would also like to know...

    Hi Folks, I had a couple words with Byudzai back in January 2015. He had a night spent with insomnia and he used the extra time to start figuring out an exciting attachment and just made a thread of his journey. This recent OTT FlatCat is originated from those times, however as I followed his...
