    Hi everyone
    It has been 3 years since my last post as I just got into making/shooting slingshots before circumstances got in the way forcing me to shelve my new hobby for another day.

    I was routing through my bits last week and found a laminated slingshot I made and decided to give it a whirl, out of practise I had a fork hit and it snapped clean in two.

    I decided would have a go of building a new one and managed to secure a few scrap pieces of 10mm Aluminium from local scrapyard and some black walnut offcuts from furniture maker.
    I cut the aluminium core on my wood bandsaw then treated it to a soak in acid solution prior to roughing the surface. I bonded together using West System G/Flex 650 epoxy resin.
    I have purchased a set of Flipclip X band clamps but as my forks are thicker than the Scout, I need to purchase a couple of longer my screw bolts.

    I still have a bit more polishing and finishing touches to do but thought I would post up and get myself back in the forums.
