Foam Handle Shooter
Bought a set of soft foam handles for bikes at the hardware store sale like a year ago, found them while cleaning up the shed.
I decided to make a strong, efficient slingshot with it. Sawed out a wide, low fork from multiplex, with a straight bar instead of the usual handle. Fitted the wood into a piece of copper tube I had left over from the heated band shooter, fixed everything with aluminum pins (detachable). Then I slipped the foam handle over the copper tube.
Inked the wood to match the handle.
A great shooter! Put on a strong three layer TB Gold band, works really good.
Took about 40 minutes total.
