    The "PATE-LAUNCHER" WITH VIDEO!!!!

    OK.....I was trying tom make some sandpaper working today (Fernada is not working...I have to make company while she is sewing at home, so I can't go to the workshop at my parents to build:()
    Patela (my daughter and pet dog) was anoying me with her tennis ball. Brought it to me about 100 times...so I took hes to the grass field nearby to play properly (and forkhunt!!).
    she loves long distance launches, and my arm often gets tired because of throwing. I had seen once in the google image search a giant slingshot for dog fetch.....sooooooooo.......

    Ahaha, great work! It looks like a mixture of a skeleton and a robot... slingshot. Really cool :cool:

    Are you sure those are relly made for orthopedic use? Maybe the postman mixed two boxes during delivery, one with orthopedic stuff and one with slingshot parts... :D

    That is so shiny and rugged. She's a lucky pup to have an owner that builds such pretty things for her:)

    It is also a golf ball shooter. Beef up the rubber a lil' and go for a record!

    Whooooohaaaaa, that is definitely NOT a pocket shooter. Hopefully Patela is able to find her way back home when you shoot full draw...;)

    ^hahaha^

    If you happen to fire it in a north-northwest direction, I will be sure to return your ball and feed Patela a good meal before she runs back:D

    I will admit that when I first saw the title of this thread, I instantly thought that you were intending to launch foie gras!

    Field test with great result...but it was almost dark, so I couldn't make a movie...I'll try during this week! I got an aproximately 200 meters range shot with a tennis ball....and the rubber isn't the best... Thera tube black will be a killer!!:D

    I don't know if it was distance or darkness....but she couldn't find most of the shots today....(I hope it is because of darkness...I loved the long distance shots!!):D
