    hi I would like to introduce myself

    I'm Tilia I'm a fanatic bushcrafter and hammock-camper
    that's how i came to the slingshot, IMO the best survival backpack hunting devise

    i made a couple of wood slingshots, and this afternoon i made my first aluminium one

    i came by this forum by searching for a template of the moore hammer
    and thought it would be a handy hangout for my slingshot questions

    my written English isn't the best but i hope to be able to make myself understood

    her are some pics, still need to sand and file the aluminium slingshot

    Welcome to the forum Tilia. Your English seems just fine to me. I'll be looking forward to seeing that aluminum slingshot when it's all done.

    Bem vindo! You don't waste time! I would love to see more pictures of that wooden sling. Sideways is not the better angle of view for that beauty!

    thanx all, feels like a warm hang-out here

    yes Ryan its a wooden sling first than a foam mold for the aluminium sling on the end, ill post some pics when im all done filing and sanding it, i don't have fancy tools just my hands and a file no machines or vice so it takes a bit more elbow grease, but there is nothing wrong with some honest manual labor ;)

    glad you all like it
