        That only helps a lot if your finish was crappy to begin with,,, he definitely used a crappy finish. Even his buffout looked sub-par for slingshots.... wipe-on finish all the way, every time..

        Sorry guys but I don't have control of that and wished the same. I'm the administrator but don't run the software and it's cheaper for them (the owners) to run the site without video data.

      Orbital sander bit the big one. Sanding aluminum frames by hand Should take a few weeks.

      Sometimes I only need an 8 inch flat sheet of new bands. Sometimes I need 1 item from a slingshot site Shipping is fearfully taxing

        I know shipping prices really suck. Is it anything you can get through Amazon? What are you needing?

        Best way to use router is when You have router cutter with guide bearing and one perfect template.

      By the way Trying to decide on a frame choice to build Fiddling with designs is painstaking Can take longer than the build itself

      Rubber shrinks in heat. Would that mean Ocularis plugs shrink? Not like I couldn't fold a set of bands or use a bigger bearing Curious

      I swear, every time I measure my draw length, I can get a different number in measurement

        I have to tune the active length to a certain feel for me and see if it’s hitting where I want it too at that distance I am shooting

        i usually cut my bands at 35 cms long, but depending on the brand i'll have to adjust, so i don't bother measuring my draw anymore...

        If it takes a half hour its not going to happen. Maybe the file is to large.
