    I wouldn't make a slingshot out of it, but ammo might be possible

    That is an interesting alloy and it would be fun to experiment with! I don't think a slingshot would work though. Unless it had a rigid 'skeleton' inside to support it and withstand the strain.
     
  4. Nah, I is too dangerous and too expensive stuff ....


    Almost as easily, and more:

    A mold or mold sand is needed in both variants.
    Although it goes without, I tried, but it is dangerous, so I'm not a video about it.


    Nee, ist mir zu gefährlich, und das Zeug zu teuer....


    Fast genau so leicht, und besser:

    Eine Form oder Formsand braucht man bei beiden Varianten.
    Obwohl es auch ohne geht, habe ich versucht, ist aber gefährlicher, und deshalb mache ich darüber kein Video.


    Viel Spass!

    Thanks for advice.

    I thought 70 degrees is easy to handle with. Maybe a form made from plaster or silicone or cutting out a negative in an old yellow pages or telephone book? Why am i wrong with it?
    May you tell about the danger in using woods metal?

    Possible hazard from lead and cadmium poisoning would be my guess. There is also a similar metal, known as 'field's metal' that I found while researching this. They removed the lead and cadmium and just added tin and bismuth (I think). Melting point is very close though. Interestingly, this is almost the exact components of lead-free solder for copper pipe, which you can find that at any hardware store.
