    Ok this piece of titanium is been bugging me I have two pieces exactly the same 8.5mm thick cut the same
    What do I do ?
    Got the winter work done “ except for the shoveling the snow part “ lol
    I think I can maybe end up with three to 4 frames from these two pieces I just don’t know what shape to cut them in
    Yes 1 is a opfs thick :) butt it sits right in the middle so it would waste a whole piece for 1 oPFS But what an OPFS it would be !:)
    Any ideas
    Thought of a @Fidencio León Burgos delta wing without the curve but with a gap
    Lol just trying to get somebody thinking for me

      OH MY!
      That is a terrible problem!
      Hopefully an angel will come to you in the night with a suggestion or two!

      Don't know about you Clint, when i have leftover materials and want to experiment i usually try making something new.
      We all know you love PFS, so i'd look into making a scaled down tiny tirutle, a tiny ninja (awesome, i have one) a Colt PFS, a Mule PFS.

      Check out the resource page on the forum, there's a lot of templates you can use as a guideline, maybe you'll come up with your own, and that would be even better!

      Got a printer :) but it will not work with my phone without Wi-Fi figured out a way to send it to my home computer and then print off a bit and then I found out that my wife and daughter used up all the ink so I have to wait until next month lol to print ! Don’t have to be on a budget after this winter Lol
      Butt your idea crossed my little mined tiny turtle but I want a real CanOpener so I don’t want to mess with that and it’s hard to beat the titanium Nibler I have “a larger bone handle Nibbler “ ? The end pointed piece what’s left is a small pfs i m sure :)
      I do need to look again at the templates I seem to do better in the gallery then find the template lol I wish I had the skills I would cut this up into one of those put together pieces that make an Edc folding pocket knife sling u could skin your wabbet with your titanium blade ? Need a CNc and skills I have made pocket knives and I have made a slingshots you would think I should be able to put one together lol . But not out of this piece of titanium this winter next year :)
      And as for a colt or mule I know those guys who makes them u’d Think I ‘d have one :(

      Id go with Bimbo make something new. I've discovered frames I ended up loving like the springbreaker that I thought I would hate.

      I'm sure you can squeeze a nibbler in there, or you could use the bottom bit as a hidden tang and do something similar to this but in pfs version

      I'd do, whatever I enjoy most doing. As you said, you've got two pieces exactly the same, so whatever you choose, you just can't go wrong. I'd recommend, to go for two very different styles. (and if you don't believe me, then just ask me!) :D

      That’s very nice , to tell you the truth I’m having a real hard time on making any slingshot right now I have all but 2 to 3 that I really liked that I didn’t get , and really don’t want to insult their style by trying to make one , i m not a sling maker , sure ! a sling copier maybe !
      Just in one of them funks gonna have to come up with something to change the boredom of shooting a slingshot by yourself all the time lol
      I need an attitude adjustment

      Clint, you could always invite that neighbors wife over to shoot with you, that you gifted the sling to, that tucked it in her bra and thanked you with a smile ? [emoji23][emoji83]

      If nugget plays fetch build yourself a tinnitus ball shooter an you can play together much easier on the ol sholder.
      And i disagree ...seeing your work last several months you are a builder sir.

      Micro slings are awesome for plinking and practicing.

      i've shot 1/4 and 3/8 ammo with this one, really fun to shoot, maybe you can make a micro one with tha leftover piece
