    The metal balls are actually hip prothesis (it has been inside human beings once). The rods are surgical aluminum from external fixator (used as well). I've shaped wood with a dremel and painted it with metal spray ink....10 layers.
     
  7. So some older men or women could not walk cause you have the balls of the hip prothesis is on your slingshot!!! :rolleyes:

    Bad boy! :D

    Actually I had to replace the prothesis due to consume of the components. So they got new ones. One of them is already gone.... Natural causes.

    That's beautiful! Real sculpture!! My Dad gave me all the knobs from their kitchen cabinets when they redid their kitchen. They are solid brass balls that have a threaded hole. I was thinking of them for sculptures and the same idea as you. Can't wait to see how you band it up and how it works.
    Be cool to do one with a hip replacement of the type that the end of the femur is sawn off and the ball joint, machined with a 'stake' out one end, is pounded into the end. Don't know if it's still done that way or not.

    The hip prothesis haven't changed much since it was created by Charnley. This "steel ball" is the head of the prothesis. The femoral shaft part, that ou call it a "stake" fits in tha hole. Jörg has showed one as a stickshot in that video he made when he hurt his hand. I have some of those, but all in different sizes and materials (titanium, stell, hidroxapatite calcium, tantalum).
    There is another model called "thompson" prothesis that has this big steel head and the "stake" in one single stell piece. Looks a lot like Jörg's zombie hammer.
    I just finished another one that I call "prothetics", with a sholder prothesis on the palmswell and 2 small hip prothesis head (22 mm) on the tip of the steel fork, but I'll give it as a gift o Mr.Arturo (my first PFS, needs a good shooter to have it), so I won't post it untill he recieves it....I don't want to ruin the surprise...

    That's serious :D, Alien(-hunter?)

    Excellent idea and fine production. I can also sense a gentle Tesla mood:) with these shiny balls on those rods. I just like the way you combine profession and free-time activity. I met the prosthesis idea during my knife research. Let me share it with you. [​IMG]
    I think your slingshot gonna be awesome! Just waiting for a "how it shoots video"! Maybe with that killer ammo you posted earlier. But please take care of your hands!! It's a destroyer for sure.

    Bests, Tremo
