    Very nice! Great work :) How do they shoot? The stringstoppers looks a little big on the slingbow. Nice fletching. Do the bow work good even if its a bit uneven? What drawweight do you get?

    It probably looks like as if I'm the only one who can’t see any pictures, I just updated Firefox, but no success, still no photos...?:confused:

    Do I have to use this sh.. Explorer? Or what am I doing wrong?:confused:

    had same issues with firefox. be sure that cookies are enabled (at least 'till firefox shuts down) and "remember?" is checked before logging in.

    Good work with the bow and arrows! Upon curing, without burner I can not help you but you can alternatively just for metal construction companies to Broken saw blades asking or you buy a machete from the Westfalia catalog for 5 € and Flext the Tips out. but i think you also does not shoots with your tips on anything that has a higher density than steel and thus really should not bend and i remember me also that in the hardened state, the tip breaks easily when it hit not straight so i think you dont need it.
