    Hi

    Made a Slingshot to try tubes for the first time. Uploaded a Pic in the "mini" Thread, maybe someone wants to see a bit more.

    First wanted to go with the ball-in-Tube method, but after i heard that some serious accidents have happened i tried to find a saver method to attach the tubes. Since i already drilled the holes after i read about the problems i picked up a file and made two small brass-rods. Good thing is i can use the gooves that are needed to hold them in place to attach flatbands if i want to :)

    15mm aluminum core

    Selfmade Pins

    red Vulcanfibre Spacers

    alternating Canvas-Jute Micarta handle

    pseudo-tapered TheraTube red

    Made a 2nd Set of Tubes, only takes a few Seconds to change them. Pull the rod, switch tubes, put rod back in, pull once, done.

    Shoots good, maybe it´s just me, but ... i like Flatbands more :p

    Love it, that micarta grip scale is a great touch!! Where do you get such great aluminum stock to work from? I really wish I could find some here!

    Thank you very much Guys for the positive Feedback.
    I did not expect that for such a little Shooter.
    Very kind :eek:

    Yes, around 8mm in diameter i think.

    Milled the core out at work, but since aluminum is very soft a bigger bandsaw might do the job too. You could also use a drillpress and drill a lot of holes and use a flat chisel.

    Out of the trash bin at work :p
