    That’s definitely one of the nicest slingshots I ever seen. And seeing you shooting with this beauty, complete the picture of a useful and functional object what actually looks like art.

    I'm jealous...;)

    Hi Randy,

    This piece is really inspiring! Great production and excellent idea.
    I was checking the other forum for this but found no (or missed) info about the clamp system you used here. Nathan has something similar as far as I know. Can you tell me more about your experiences with this band attachment method? For example: Tightened with thumb or used a small wrench or driver? Have you posted photos of the other side of the shooter somewhere else?

    Beside all the greatness of this slingshot a nice endcap for the scews/bolt could be a nice touch. ;)

    Thank you for posting this here too! Hope you'll share more :).

    Bowdown,
    Tremo

    It is a simple tounge and groove. It can be finger tightened depends on the screw or bolt used and the size. Sometimes I use socket head screws other times phillips head screws. :D

    Randy, thanks for the images and the info! :)

    I criticized Antraxxs Custom "S" slingshot here at this forum. I read through your post at the other forum about that trade and feeling quite bad. Please forgive my criticism as an occupational hazard. Reading through your thoughts about Jen's hard work opened my eyes about take more care.
    Jörg mentioned in one of his videos he's working with minimal tools but not much more. Hope Antraxx reads this post too, if so hope I can smoothin' out that post.

    Bests,
    Tremo

    No problem Tremo, I forgive your criticism. If you feel bad about your post in custom "S" you are free to comment there. :) I am happy to own the custom "S" She is a beautiful slingshot but more than that I am happy to make friends by trading slingshots. Learning about the maker is an added bonus to collecting anything hand made. AnTraXx's work is so spectacular that I am sure many people think he has a nice workshop and lots of tools. So isn't it wonderful we all can live and learn.
    Take care
    Randy
