Hi Folks,

It is time to post a template. It's a bit of a new stuff, since I usually do not make templates but I was receiving some PM about the TenTon Hammer design and decided to spare some time to create an exciting template to you.

General Info | Seljan - TenTonHammer v.1.1.


  • OTT Over The Top band attachment
  • TTF Through The Fork band attachment with aiming dimple
  • Loop Tube (Dankung) attachment with secondary aiming dimple, including position grooves
  • Single Tube TTF mount including position grooves
  • Ball in Tube mount method
  • Lanyard hole
  • Currently there is no clip attachment
  • Fork Width: (4") 100mm, Fork Gap: (2") 50mm, Overall Height: (5,8") 148mm, ForkTip Thickness: (3/4") 20mm, Maximum Overall Thickness (Side Width): (1,57") 40mm, OTT: (1") 25mm, TTF (1-3/8") 30mm, Loop Hole Diameter: (5/16") 8mm

So, what you find inside this single PDF (these functions are working only with desktop-notebook computers and when opened within Adobe Reader NOT displayed in browser)


  • an STL attachment as a downloadable from the file directly (offline), that's free. You can print it on home 3D printers.
  • an interactive 3D preview - rotate, zoom and even cross section views to help your DIY builds
  • hand size reference sheets - compare your hand size and you can make changes on the template if it's too small or large. Just save time and material. Check first - build when you're sure it fits
  • Slice templates in 3mm steps - You can skip slices and get to 6mm, 9mm, 12 mm. So 3mm seems to me a good generic unit for slice templates
  • optional outlines for OTT and larger handle
  • 3D turntable link to Youtube

Feedback appreciated :)

Have a nice day,
Tremo

Thank you very much Darren! Hope you can more time for your awesome builds!

Thanks for stopping by! There are great templates but slingshots are evolving. I'm more than happy if you have some new ideas to share!

Thanks NW! Calinb & SteveC might give this a try in 3D printing. Cal is moving as far as I know, but maybe he will visit the thread.

DeranNdy my friend, I hope this pdf can help you on your project. There is no Vesa template and I want to move that project forward but it takes time. Have you checked Toddy', Mule design? He has a template at ComForum. Mule is pretty close to the Vesa and you can compare it to the Vesa gallery image. Let us know how your hammer project moves!

Thank you for sharing!
You're welcome! Thanks for your comment!

Have a nice day & shoot a lot,

This design has a 'General Motors' look to it: Angular yet conforming. Well done!

Tremside - I like the design a lot. I drew up a design a while ago with a grip that looks a lil like that. I'm gonna complete that project. It's good of you to put that design out for people.

Looks good. We're you the one designing the slingbow? How's that comin?
Thank you mate!

My best advice is to subscribe to SimpleShot and I'm sure you will be updated when it will be officially announced. I'm just one person in a whole team, we are all excited.

Thank you for your understanding!

Ok thanks for the info, I'm sure it will turn out great! No rush here, I'd rather wait longer for an even better product and it sounds like you guys are on top of it. Good luck Sir

Hi Titus,

Sorry for the delay. End of the year is pretty much a spin all fronts.

The nylon material is quite reliable, but since it is a pure nylon and printed it's strength is little less than a thermoplastic nylon (or nylon for cutting boards for e.g.) the particular 3D print is fine for target shooting with small ammo 3/8" and 8mm. However it's not advised for learning. Not a friend of frequent forkhits.

The template is available at my website so if you're hesitating you can build it for yourself. I've seen a couple variations on this frame. The original concept was to create a minimalist hammergrip style slingshot. If it's not a goal the handle may be widened.

If you know Stefan "The Core" on the forum(s) you can pick up some ideas about modification of the TenTon. DerAndy also used it for inspiration as I remember.

Hope this info helps, just drop me an email if you need more.

Cheers,
Mark
