    <br><br><br>I know what people will say once I show off the hammerhead frames. "You will hit your hand". I know the fork is low, but of course I won't hit my hand with it.<br>The rooftop slingshot, a far more dangerous design, really hit my hand. Or, rather, I did, not using it correctly.<br><br>But a normal fork is a different issue. In order to show the safety, I made a version of the hammerhead that has a 40mm "wall" above my hand. The fork is only 25mm high! So it seems impossible that the ball can fly over the wall.<br><br>And yet it works. Flipping does that. The safety margin is a good 100mm.<br><br>Will show it in a video soon!

    Looks like a "drunk Test" to me. When that annoying drunk guy starts talking about how bad-ass he is with a slingshot you just hand him this one. "Here ya go buddy, Let's see what you can do"

    Actually, it'd be interesting to use a table tennis paddle and see how consistent the impact height is.
