    Hi Folks,
    fore a Steampunk Konvention i will build me a propper Slingbow.
    I Draw 2 Versions.
    1. one with Vacuum Zylinders and if this dont work well
    2. i will change it in a Rubber Version with a very Powerfull special rubber for RC Planes.
    Do you think this will work? I will Build the Frame from 12mm Plywood (Multiplex)
    My first goal is the crasy Look, but it must work also.

    Very in the spirit. BoyntonStu has demonstrated that vacuum shooters do work. But as a man of rubber, I think that a combination of the 2 designs might go better . I would use the frame designed for the cylinders and attach shorter, heavier (tensioned) tubes from the tips to the brace. That said, the cylinders are more in the genre. Good Luck with this build.

    I just got a Maslow maker made CNC. And it'd be a miracle to have these files. sure seems like no one on the internet has a crossbow/slingbow file that's a decent full size stock/tiller. Mostly they're all just rubber band junkers (toy rubber band guns for kids) but there's nothing cool out there can't even find an archery bow that's a cnc capable file. Props to you. Thats full blown amazing. Id probably have a heart attack if I got an SVG or dxf of any cnc router file of something cool that would actually shoot something . It doesn't matter to me cuz I got 4x8 ft of surface to cut. Amazing job .
