        @AdamvVS Being in a popular band, I bet you get that all the time. Jk I had to take a double look to make sure you weren’t who I thought you were. Lol. I will send you a picture later.
        It boils down to getting your wife to building and shooting slingshots.

      Added a 15 inch scroll saw to the tool collection
      1. Flipgun

        I love a scroll. If you don't already have one , I suggest you get a foot control at Harbor Freight. I plug all of my power tools into one. If anything happens to make me flinch (blade breaking, belts coming loose or the grinder grabbing something.) it shuts off with out having to grab at a switch.

      I've done the same thing before. Found out doing short burst and letting them rest for a few is the best way to help prevent that. Of course if you don't have to have it in a hurry letting it air dry for several days before you do that would be a plus.

        You won't find it at a store unless they supply knife or gun makers. Your best bet is online retailers or ebay, though most pieces are suitable only for scales. I found a local place that does insulators for industrial/electrical applications, but they don't really deal with the public.

        I've seen some killer looking slingshots with bands on here I want to make one just have to look at ahow to tie them
        Sep 15, 2018
      5. oldmiser
        oldmiser
        with the 105's just allow for the fold over for your pouch & fork ties
        that band set will have 12# pull weight...use lead for ammo..it will be slow

        Even if there were such a thing, it would be different at every moment.
        Such a thing happens to everything that is usually called "The Best"

      Allways seem short on supplies or time to make another slingshot and when I do my preparation does not turn out to be suffice I'll get there

        Yes you will if you want to. if you are motivated and have the right advice, you will be astounded with what you can do with a knife, sandpaper and a tree fork.
