Another impossible slingshot
I know what people will say once I show off the hammerhead frames. "You will hit your hand". I know the fork is low, but of course I won't hit my hand with it.
The rooftop slingshot, a far more dangerous design, really hit my hand. Or, rather, I did, not using it correctly.
But a normal fork is a different issue. In order to show the safety, I made a version of the hammerhead that has a 40mm "wall" above my hand. The fork is only 25mm high! So it seems impossible that the ball can fly over the wall.
And yet it works. Flipping does that. The safety margin is a good 100mm.
Will show it in a video soon!
