    @onnod: it´s pretty much easier to ´load´but while the shot itself you can´t feel the magazine...<br>what I forgot to say...<br>what do you think about the colour of the multiplex? I roasted the wood with a burner and then finished it with PU

    sorry but I don´t invented the fire <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br>it´s your free decision if you try it out;)<br>I can only say be careful with the different layers of the multiplex material, some of those burn faster than others...

    Hey, cool teamwork. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"><br><br>Well designed and good woodworking.<br><br>@ Lars,<br>is there a magnet for holding the next ball like the <a href="http://www.pocketpredator.com/gallery/x39.jpg" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Paladin from Bill Hays</a> or a mechanism?

    @failureisalwaysanoption<br>I don´t wanted to be impolite and I really hope to see one day another interpretation of this slingshot, if anyone is interested <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1"><br><br>@zwillie<br>i think i have to answer your question because lars said he never realized this project until now...<br>i used a 2x3mm neodym magnet for the magazine, very similar to the paladin of bill hays ( i was inspired by the project of him and the drawing from lars)<br>those little things are incredible (but also dangerous in bigger sizes)<br>this mini version is already able to hold a weight of 400g <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_surprised.gif" alt="Surprised" longdesc="4">

    Oh, sorry Lars I don´t want to say that you have copied it intentionally.<br><br>Yours is looking differnt with the wood.<br><br>I was also thinking about a shooter like this, but with plexi layers to see the content of the magazine.<br>Think this is very cool as an all-day-shooter.
