    I mean, handsome! The fork is relatively low, it needs sharpening style. Well done!

    <div>If you want to attach flats maybe you could fold the edges of the forks in like an inch on each side , a narrower fork is best for more speed...<br><br><br><br>This is an epic first slingshot tho, you could even just glue on a hunk of nice wood as a fork tip if you wanted too. Or another piece of metal on each end and clamp the bands between the forks and it with a screw or something... <br><br>I love this handle and I want more info, where to buy, how much an so on <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"> Maybe just link us <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

    the idea of glueing on some wood is realy good, thanks for that. <br><br>ok, here some more infos about the handle i have bought it at ebay. i have payed 6 &euro; i think... the regular price in some shops is about 10&euro; ....<br>the problem is, that the handle is hollow with low wallthickness, so it is difficult to weld. <br><br>there are some shops <u></u> were you can buy it, but i dont know if they offer international shipping... i cant post links in moment, my membership is to short...

    Temporarily you can put a piece of leather under the gum and tie it all together

    Very good agonie. Nice idea. It must be heavy, which is also good for shooting. <br><table width="90%" cellspacing="1" cellpadding="0" border="0" align="center">
