New design for a plastic mould

A friend of mine wants to start selling slingshots and asked me if I could provide a design. Sure!

This one is a mix between the Moorhammer (handle) and the Hand Mortar (for Cold Steel), The fork is wider than the Hand Mortar's, and also the fork arms a thicker. The handle is pure Moorhammer, but sports a lanyard hole. The idea is that the user can saw the hole part off if desired. Also the slot for the looped bands should not be sawed through as it is a bit of a problem for flat bands - you have to attach those fairly low so they don't slip into the slot.

This is a great slingshot! The fork is 15mm higher than the Moorhammer's, more safe for beginners but still fairly low, The handle is very very comfortable.

    1. Made from three pieces of 18mm multiplex plywood.

      Since I have given this design to somebody else who wants to commercialize it, I no longer own it and can't publish any blueprints.

  2. What about that awesome finish?did you use linseed and polish? And how did you make the cord look so fancy rather than with the typical clumsy knot?

    1. Finish is linseed oil and car chrome polish.

      The paracord was burned on both ends, then pressed together so the ends joined. Then I "served" the paracord with red polypropylene string, much like you serve a crossbow string.
