    Hey,<br><br>just wanted to show you one of my latest Hammers.<br><br><br>I have a few Designs in my head that i still want to try but i am quite busy at work atm and have to start preparing my <a href="http://rover.ebay.com/rover/1/711-53200-19255-0/1?toolid=10029&campid=CAMPAIGNID&customid=CUSTOMID&catId=11450&type=2&ext=221185194851&item=221185194851" class="postlink" target="_blank" rel="nofollow">Motocycles</a> for the hopefully soon comming spring.<br>After the Copperhammer i will do a two-finger supported shooter in aluminum with tubular rubber. <br><br><br>This one is just a simple combination of Amaranth and Brass.<br><br>I made it because compared to my first Amaranth-Slingshot i here got my hands on a really wonderful board.<br><br>The sawdust turned to dark purple within a few hours in the daylight...really amazing stuff.<br><br>Polished it and waxed it as usual. As you can see it can nearly <br>compete (maybe not over a longer period of time) with a clear-coat <br>finish in terms of waterresistance. So it is perfectly usable during all<br> kinds of weathers, not something just to "look at".<br>The Water was freezing cold btw. It´s a small well that runs not far from where i live. Nice Background for Pictures tho.<br><br><br>Cheers<br><br>AnTrAxX<br><br><br><img src="http://i46.tinypic.com/4j88rc.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><img src="http://i48.tinypic.com/2psqh6q.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br><br><img src="http://i48.tinypic.com/d8adx.jpg" border="0" alt="">

    What can I say&hellip; very nice, I love the color and the different materials. And what I also<br>like is that it looks like you have found <strong>YOUR</strong> form of slingshot, to shoot with.<br><br><br>Unlike me I try out and I´m still not satisfied. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_scratch.png" alt="scratch" longdesc="33"><br><br><br>One question, how do the groves work on the top of the fork? Does it work with the &ldquo;round&rdquo;<br>form of the fork and broad Bands?

    Amazing work! Which glue do you use? When you grind the Sshot,, the metal layer will heat up and some glues have problems with that.
