    Wow, very nice coolection, great job! I like the slingbow! ;)

    For the takedown Hammer, try making the forks thicker than the original PDF. Do you use multiplex for it?

    Thanks!
    I use multiplex for the fork and pine for the grip. I think it work now.
    But at some point I'll probably try to build a steel fork as in the original

    Very nice! You should sand it and oil it to make it even nicer ;)

    I like Bill´s takedown slingshots too, I made his "Altoids Hunter".

    Yes I'll still Smooth and Oils, only needs to trim the Fork and I checked first whether the Fork holding at all and when I'm done I'll introduce them naturally.
    I like the Design too, i Saw your Work on the Thread about the Minis. Nice Work!

    The pine grip on the take down one looks scary thin at the front!! Careful!!! Plywood may be a better choice, and/or make the front bit a bit beefier.
    Nice all the same!!
    And I think the term for what you have is "arrow rest". A "whisker biscuit" is:

    Thanks for the tips, unfortunately my english is not the best but I'm trying to learn. At the moment I look Arrow with German subtitles ^ ^
    I've already taken care if that holds, and so I pulled with a thread and it is also broken. However, I had not yet used the screw and now I'm glued all together again with the screw.
    Tomorrow when the glue is dry I'm gonna see if that holds and then I'll grind them smooth and paint so that it looks like a cast iron,
    but I will make another handle of multiplex with a metal fork as the original.
    If someone could give me tips as I work out the corner who holding the fork,*I would be grateful.
    The last time I did it with a drill and a rasp but unfortunately I have no Dremel.

    Today I drilled holes in the handle and smoothed it, then I tried to pull with a thread.
    This time the handle held but the fork is broken :eek:
    Next time I'll put the fork backward and will build them from metall and the handle of multiplex ;)

    Finally closing time and the steel for the fork I've also :)
    After breakfast, I'm going to graining the plate, then I drill holes and saw out the fork with a angle grinder + cutting disc and a hacksaw, after this I editing them with an arrow and chalk to polish. :cool:
