    A while back i made a pattern for casting a slingshot via green sand casting.
    This week I finally edited the video making the actual slingshot :)
    Hope you enjoy it!

    Wow!- Great tutorial!

    Thank you very much!
    And a great result!
    I definitely will make my first try exactly
    like you showed me! (All ingredients are here
    already- except for the sand..)

    Did I thank you already?

    Thank you then!

    Chapeau!

  8. Moin moin,
    ach jetzt habe ich auch verstanden, warum du die Form geteilt hasst..... (Blaue Holzrohling)

    Schön sind die Sicherheitsschuhe......!!!

    Bloss, bitte schmeiß den verbrannten Sand (Ölgebundener Sand) weg.... hier bekommst du keine verbindung bei der nächsten Form mehr!!!
    Versuch es mal, den Schwarzen Sand, wieder in einer Kugel zu formen.... bei mir funktioniert das nie....!!!

    Aber sonst gut, und Informativ gemacht... DAnke!!!

    Really nice work on that cast. Very impressive. But then, I've been impressed by all of your work. You may actually inspire me to try this sometime. I'll make sure the fire department is on standby ;)

    Ja, Sicherheit hat bei mir immer Vorrang!
    Soweit ich weiß kann man den verbrannten sand wiederbeleben indem man ihn wieder mit dem öl imprägniert. keine ahnung ob das praktikabel ist. Warscheinlich hätte ich ihn echt wegschmeißen sollen...

    Mensh ich mag deine selbstgemachten Werkzeuge so sehr! Vor allem das hot wire cutter und die Tischsaege sind sehr cool. Hab deine videos alle gesehen. Gutgemacht.

    I was wondering how that is done, pretty impressed how well the sand stayed in the box. Make great sand castles :)
