    This is my next one out of aluminium.<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=6&u=17793509" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/17/79/35/09/zwille12.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>It has three inserts out of brass. And all high polished.(A lot of work)<br><a href="http://www.servimg.com/image_preview.php?i=7&u=17793509" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow"><img src="http://i39.servimg.com/u/f39/17/79/35/09/zwille13.jpg" border="0" alt=""></a><br>Jörg said in one of his videos,that it woud be nice to have a counterweight in the grip.<br>So i decided to put heavy material in the grip.<br>It lies very well in the hand, but i didn´t shoot with it. At the weekend i will find some time for it.At the fork it´s possible to assemble 20 mm band´s. So it must be powerfull as my first one.<br><br>I hope you like it.<br>Greetings<br>Peter

    <span class="postbody"><br>I didn`t make this one on cnc. I made it on a conventional milling machine. First work out the shape with a stencil and then the fine work ( curves) with drill .Then sanding by hand.<br>And more fine sanding. Then a long time polishing with a drill and polish paste on felt. I think it´s the same <br> procedure if you make a wooden Slingshot.<br><br>NO CNC <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_eek.gif" alt="Shocked" longdesc="5"></span>
