have been busy in the workshop today.
My newest creation is another compound slingshot, this time using four pulleys, of course all of them equipped with ball bearings.
This compound slingshot is really compact, because the rubber is stored very efficiently on two rollers per band. The slingshot is just 18 cm wide (7") and 15,5 cm (6") high, but it enhances the draw length by 17 cm per side! This means there is almost no more dead play in the action, my entire draw length is used effectively.
It shoots very good. I will do a video tomorrow including some action. Will be fun!
It looks a little bit like a candle holder - but I need to find a better name than that... ideas, anyone?
