    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

      Ok didn’t want u guys to get up this morning without seeing “ the Goliath “
      One large opfs
      Love it ! Best frame ever !!!! Heavy twice as heavy as a bonegrip and also twice as heavy as a Desert ironwood conus
      Started out as a conus frame so it has the fork tips of a conus same with same length
      Just cut to a opfs cut . To tell you the truth just the peace of titanium alone with my vet wrap was one of my favorite slingshotS it’s like holding the band at full extension in a vice , so for me to take it all apart and to add wood and leather I was hoping I wasn’t messing up one of my best frames . Nope
      Best ever !
      I tried to make it in the style of @richnewm opfs it’s the best opfs design that I can shoot and be it did not turn out exactly like his hooray !!!!! It’s got the lines
      This baby is a muscle car a 454 blown .
      I added leather on the flat side it’s cold here and fingers on cold Metal in the morning is not cool I did not want any more space on that side so I just added a piece of buffalo leather it’s a nice dark leather and complemented it very well really helps on the grip all in all I love it !!!!!

      It was a good build learned a lot for my first Metal to wood frame build
      And replaced three slingshots in my shooting rotation with all three of these I will shoot them till I break them !
