    An "Altoid Axiom Champ"

    My favorite shooter, full size in an altoids can.

    Sorry about not having better photos but I have been so busy I have had to force this build into my schedule since this challenge began. The concept isn't what I originally had going through my brain but it works.

    The forks are held in place by the pin having Neodymium magnets in both faces of the handle and in the pin. The tolerances some how came out great, though the overall build execution could be a bit better, so I am writing this one up as the first hard copy prototype.

      That is very clever. Do you have plans to insert a pin into the hole in the handle in the next build? Or maybe a lanyard? I have a frame where a lanyard goes there but I made the lanyard very short so that it only goes around my third and fourth fingers instead of my wrist.

      Woooooooooow! Holy molly! I think I may have a new favourite in the altoid catty contest! Super clever design with the pins that hold the fork and the handle pin securing them from the other side! Awesome!

      That is seriously impressive, both the design and the execution.

      I haven't built an altoids slingshot yet, but the cool factor is pretty high on these. :)

      Lol, this, way too brilliant. I've got a couple of tins that need to be put to some use. I've got a first aid kit and a survival kit

      I´m a little late on this one, but wow, what an excellent and well thought out design. Even like that color and material mix, looks a bit old school, but very nice!

      I like this one even if it would not be put in dark small tin can…:)

      Very nice!
