    I have one request this christmas.
    I'd like to see mr. Sprave make a snowball catapult like a gatling gun/automatic. With big spoons throwing the snowballs. It should be called: the snowfight dominator.
    Or perhaps the snow mischief terminator. It would be too funny.
    I can already see kids running and hiding in terror when one arrives with this machine XD

    Geez... I wish you would have posted this about a month ago to give him an hour or two to build it!

    Heh. When I was 16, some friends and I build a 'snowball slingshot' out of an old Willy's. The forks were mounted at the front of the car above the hood, the rear winch gave additional draw power. The windshield was removed. Aiming was a matter of how you parked. The thing was difficult to use but when it worked right it could slam a snowball, baseball (which we used far more often) or whatever else through just about anything. Those were the days...

    I guess your neighbours were not so happy about it?

    I will try to make one as in the video above. Just carve a regular/perhaps bigger slingshot, but add a big pouch right? Although it's not the "snowfight dominator" i had in mind, it seems fun to me.
