    Seems made from bone....It's a PVC pipe. Actually many connections that I've made during shopping on the warehouse (Just mounted it on the pipes sector....people staring at me like I'm some sort of freak:eek:)
    Great stuff about putting it toghether is that the glue "melts" the PVC, and after you assemble the prts, it becomes solid...one unique piece.
    Of course I've made a little "sculpture" on the parts, to be more "bone" like.
    This slingshot is very, very strong, and shall receice "king kong" bands!
    I'm Thinking of making another one with a tutorial video...anybody interested? Would be good for the beginners, since it its very easy !

    I can imagine how people have watched you, as you have built your Bone Shot together :D
    Looks very good and I think a Tutorial would be worthwhile ;) 1 +

    I bet you did get a few strange looks!! I like that idea very much. Properly glued, Sch 40 pvc will withstand 175 psi internal pressure with no problem, so it should be plenty strong for a slingshot! Just beware of leaving this in the sun. The UV rays will quickly destroy the pvc.
    You could also add a plug in the handle and then put some material inside as a stabilizer/counter-balance.
    Great work as always, and very cost effective!

    Tirei sim.
    Preste atenção...para o Google tradutor funcionar você tem que escrever corretamente e pontuar corretamente também. Não pude entender se você escreveu uma afirmativa ou uma pergunta!

    I like Will's idea about handle weight.

    Plenty of opportunity to use an ammo magazine for ballast.

    What did you shape this beauty with?

    Thought about the magazine. And I'm still thinking.....:)

    \I shaped it with the sandpaper tool of the dremel... and after that, progressive sandpapers to make it smooth!
