My extra income is the reconstruction of bathrooms. When discarding the old bathroom facilities occurred to me to use the brass balls of the shower holder for my new slingshot, a little like Joergs "Ballfork.<br><img src="http://img221.imageshack.us/img221/9941/ballfork1.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Thread is sufficiently deep, reaching almost the entire diameter of 20 mm balls. The construction is mounted.<br><br><img src="http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/2356/ballfork2.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><img src="http://img707.imageshack.us/img707/2528/ballfork3.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Once that is done I add a photo. But I already know that it will be a little ugly slingshot, but mainly to let function well.

I was wondering about the band i mean does it not slip off to the side when you stretch the band?<br><br>If so You have already called it ugly so i was thinking why don't you made a nice flat edge on the opposite side to where your going to be looking at the balls from? that way it wont slip off?<br><br>If I'm wrong then nice job and if you have welding gear it would actually look cool if you put another ball under the handle grip and sprayed the frame?

Today I finished this slingshot. Fimo mass is very interesting, definitely it ever again use it. It is a solid material and contributes to the overall strength slingshot.<br><br><img src="http://img4.imageshack.us/img4/365/ballfork5.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Bandset is TB Gold, 25 cm length, 50mm - 40mm, one strip on each side.<br>this slingshot has an excellent handle, definetly because I'm into it, pushed my hand.<br><br><img src="http://img28.imageshack.us/img28/9036/ballfork4.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><br>It's not a beauty, but shoots very well, although he is a bit heavy.

Thought about fibres to work inside when its plastic. Cotton or glassfibres or the fibres they make ropes from and gaskets for pipes.
