    Good old times in holland on koninginensdag lol my Dutch has already faded :eek: :( there were so many cheap things and we would always earn over 200 euros and shared it :) were you would sit down as early from 4 sometimes earlier and just sell stuff go eat ice cream and of course it was on the weakend ;) you could sometimes find stuff like that but higher price

    Maybe you can use Screws that fit as Tips, and shape the Headsite.

    The best way to buy things at those sales is to do it when it is almost finished and when the sellers are packing everything back. At that moment they are busy and tired of staying in the sun all day long. That' s the moment to make your move :D
    If i came two hours before i could buy two of them :(

    Most of the time i come back with nothing esle than tons of books that my GF buy. Yesterday she found nothing interesting for her. I guess it was my turn for once. ;)

    Same here, i can stay hours watching all the things people try to sell. It is sometimes incredible, sometimes funny,...
    It is a good way to socialize our dogs too. Walking between other people and dogs is a good thing to do.

    seems like a left handed bow, Tok! I mean, you must hold with the right and draw left.

    :confused::confused::confused::confused:
    I dont know.... the cetral part is called riser. People use to make them frow wood....you can aways build one. All I know is that the space where the arrow goes is on the left, but should be on the right. If you manage to correct this with the inversion...

    In the pic bellow you can see the central piece can be taken apart removing two screws. If i turn it upside down it should do the trick?! I just noticed that if i do so, i' ll have to switch the pulleys too...

    I don't think that turning upside down turns right hand to left hand. The central part must be mirror shaped to change the hands!

    tokSick, I am sorry but the risers are like hands, not interchangeable, about 15% archers are left handed (left eye dominant), of course you can learn to shoot left hand but maybe it will interfere with the slingshot as you shoot it right handed ...
    Cheers
