    bugged you are!

    Hey,

    you seem like having thought about giving slingshots a "try"
    or s.th.? From your tiredness (from making slingshots? :) )
    I think I can read that you are lost!- Just like all the others,
    including myself!- This stuff is a lot more viral than any drug
    or disease!...
    You might have thought: I could handle that.. Sell some slings..

    See what happens: The slingbug handles YOU!- makes you make slings!
    and even wanting to learn to shoot those ;)

    And let me tell you: this is just the beginning!- Forget going for a
    walk NOT thinking about that you forgot to bring your handsaw..

    It´s like a genetic defect in a craftsmans brain,
    activated by testosterone and the skills learned before..

    Welcome aboard!

    Be

    I concur with your diagnosis. Having acute Tinkeritus from birth made me susceptible to the contagion Slingingitus. It doesn't help to be suffering from Gunnorhea, Itching Trigger Finger, Gladius Fever and Archeritus all at the same time. Throw in a motorcycle or two and the prognosis is grim.

    About selling...I have messages on YouTube about orders already...which is mad because nothing has been fully tested to destruction (if possible)...and I don't see putting such dangerous toys out in the world until I am sure they will not fail. Inventing, Testing, Producing and Selling my goods is how I have made my livelyhood these past decades so if I make a good Sling Shot of course it's part of my "line" but I am a realist. There are many top tier makers with decades of sling shot lore guiding them...I'm a new guy with Slingingitus.

    I appreciate the welcome. I used to spend a fair amount of time on Tech Forums, but the general demeanor of the members would drive me away. Seems to me that Herr Sprave has attracted a nice group of guys together.

    Yep

    You are absolutely right! THAT´S WHAT HE DID!

    And that´s what the guys here are really thankful for!

    (I am). Concerning what you do for a living: respect!
    If I wasn´t that cowardish, I´d never have studied..
    My teacher 32 years ago made the diagnosis for me:
    "He´s got to work with his hands, otherwise he´ll be
    unhappy!"

    - I didn´t trust him, now that bug broke up my "shell"

    Enough of "prepping"!- I need to start! (my shop is ready..)

    Troble on shooting PFS?
    You should try watching Arturo's tutorial about PFS.
    Important: you must twist the pouch 90 degrees counterclock wise. And hold the pouch with thumb bellow, in a 15 to 20 degrees angle. And release that way. No fork hit shall happen.
