    Hi everyone,

    My name is Tslil and I am from Israel. I have been reading through the forum with much interest and would like to thank all the contributors for the wonderful posts and information here. I cannot, however, seem to find the tutorials and / or blueprints section. Could someone please direct me there?

    Great to be here!!!

    Best,

    TC

    Thank you for the warm welcome. I hope to get the ability to download that PDF soon, and then I can perhaps share my project when it's finished :)

    I'm eager to start - but still can't find the blueprints for the hex pump gun. I could wing it and try to reconstruct the mechanism from the video, but I would rather have the PDF.

    So, I have finally gained access to the PDF files (Thank you). I have been looking the design over and a few questions come up. I've run some searches and dont seem to be able to find too much. Perhaps some ove you could enlighten me.

    1. In the video tutorial there is no detail about how the "inside" of the band i.e. the part directly behind the string and immediately before the nut, is rigged. Is it the same continuous rubber band going through? or is it a sling made of another material rigged to a rubber band on either side? If so, what are the pros and cons of using a paracord VS. Steel wire VS steel cable?

    Note: Im playing around with the idea of sliding a steel cable into a rubber tube in place of the paracord. Has anyone tried this?

    2. I am thinking about weighing the shot up by filling the threaded bore of the nuts with molten copper or lead. Will this have a positive effect in your opinion as far as range and accuracy?

    Thanks in advance for your insight and experience :)
