    :O !! what an idea. It turned out great and beautiful. You did not trim the bottom part so that you can tie rope brace in it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"> . very good. Will look great after finishing.<br><br>Is that your girlfriend's son and the slingshot that you made for him in the profile photo? Very cute. Nice photo.

    Very nice! Good thinking using a bottle opener for the metal core. Looks like it would be a great 1745 tube shooter. Just my preference <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_twisted.gif" alt="Twisted Evil" longdesc="13">

    Maybe i gonna ask my bro to give it back to me( if he still have it). So i can try to fix it and try it with tubes later. I love shooting with a PFS. My other one goes everywhere i go.

    Hi TokSick,<br>realy nice idea.<br>Is the glue strong enough, to hold the wooden part on the metal?<br>Maybe that´s the problem.

    The glue was not the problem( 2 comp. epoxy). The problem was my brother <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_wink.gif" alt="Wink" longdesc="15">. He had a fork hit and broke a piece of it. He is not living near us so i did not see him for a long time. Hope it is not too much damaged so i can fix it.<br>Thank you guys for the nice comments.
