Hex coupler nut <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"> !!! and threaded rod <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_cheers.png" alt="cheers" longdesc="28"> !!! yayyyyyyyyy...!<br>I have this stainless steel threaded rod, but, I would like to make this one in non-metal. <br><br>Did you groove the Hex nuts for band attachments?<br>The threaded rods are in itself a good grip.<br>But a dark green or same theraband gold colored cord would look good on it. <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>Very cool idea. It must be accurate too.

threaded tree rods are normally not made from stainless stell...should be usual pretty weak stell with a Zn coating...so maybe you are lucky^^

Yes I bad bought the stainless steel rod, because it has superfine threading than the iron threaded rod, and does not rust. Little expensive. Yes the SS rod looks somewhat like silver but darker.<br>Looks very good Tysonspapa,<br>Show us in your video when the rain stops. I believe it is accurate.<br>Here, the rain started just now. I wanted to observe and take photo of the venus-sun transit, and lo, the clouds became dense and rain started first time.

Simple and cheap design, <u>but effective</u>.<br><br>It will do the same work a 'beautiful' slingshot can do.<br><br>I like it.

Might sound a bit creepy, but an hour ago, I "thought" of this same idea! Then I stumble upon it here as I read back-posts. Too funny! Great minds think alike! I was going to use regular size nuts. Coupler nut is a great idea though. I'm thinking of threading on some nuts, leaving a gap in the center of the rod and bend it there. This would be the bend at the bottom of the handle. Stack on some more nuts on each side and again leave a gap and bend out to make the fork legs, and etc. from there. I thought is would look cool with the nuts all stacked and wouldn't need paracord wrap. Keep the full metal look. Threading eye-bolts into the ends of the coupling nuts would be cool to. Would allow more band options. <br>Stay tune....gonna have to move this higher up on the to-do list........ <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_biggrin.png" alt="Very Happy" longdesc="1">

<span class="postbody"><br><br>If you try to bend more than needed by mistake, then bend back to correct it to match the angles on both sides, back and forth, it is going to break. The idea is to bend it slowly and carefully to an angle only once, straight and final.<br>Try again. ))<br><img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_study.png" alt="study" longdesc="34"></span>
