Hey guys,<br><br>i´m expecting a package from the UK within the next few days...filled with fine woods like purple heart, zebrano, ebony etc...<br><br>Since i had a little bit of spare time today i did some cut-outs with the cnc-mill.<br><br>Wrote two small programms. one as you might recognize is based on jörgs six-circle design, one is based on a quick scetch i made on a piece of paper. my idea behind it was an easy shootable, pocketable, finger-support slingshot (like the ones Gamekeeper John makes from Multiplex).<br><br>As a matter of fact i had no 5mm Alminum left (wanted a core only)...well...so i gave it a go with 15mm <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br>Pretty thick already...but i will nevertheless fully laminate the six-circle design. <br><br>The Pocket-Shooter came out really nice for a quick scetch. The two grooves on the fork are perfect for thumb and indexfinger, the other three fingers can grab the short handle pretty save. Fot this one i planned a palmswell only, to make it even more comfortable. I will round out and polish the fork and add grooves for the rubber.<br><br>When i´m done finishing them i will present them in "my" slingshotthread <br>( <a href="/t267-my-slingshots">http://theslingshotforum.forumotion.com/t267-my-slingshots</a> )<br><br>Took a few quick pictures, hope you like them...maybe you also got some additional ideas <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br>P.S: The holes are just remainings from the fixing in the vise, they will be invisible after laminating wood on top of it of course.<br><br><br><br>The one on the left is the SC Design obviously. Very comfortable. I went for the low fork here...think i will add a hammergrip.<br><br><img src="http://s1.directupload.net/images/120605/o9l3imwk.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Nice small Slingshot. The Grooves on the outside of the Fork are for Thumb and indexfinger...<br><br><img src="http://s7.directupload.net/images/120605/k2ni9ngv.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>...you hold it like this:<br><br><img src="http://s1.directupload.net/images/120605/rop5pczt.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Pretty solid frames already as you see...but i will add wood nevertheless <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2"><br><br><img src="http://s1.directupload.net/images/120605/ri3ufjpe.jpg" border="0" alt=""><br><br>Hope you like them <img src="http://illiweb.com/fa/i/smiles/icon_smile.gif" alt="Smile" longdesc="2">
