After looking it up with the Google search engine, turns out SPS is a model of slingshot, something like Stratagem Performance Slingshot.

Also, if any of you are wondering what spalted wood is, it appears to be wood that has been affected by fungal organisms, causing changes in coloration and pattern in the wood, prized by some for its beauty. It is said that before working spalted wood, it should be put in a microwave oven and/or(?) soaked in boiled linseed oil (BLO) to prevent inhaling/ ingesting fungus spore which could have an adverse effect on one's health.

Am I the only one who uses an Internet forum to talk to himself?

Yes, why?

In my neck of the woods, I have heard the old timers use "juvember" for slingshot, I grew up with "beanshooter".

What are "dye cut" bands or pouches?

 

He meant "die cut", as in cut with a die, rather than by hand.

What does SWO mean in front of PFS ? I know that PFS stands for Picked Fork Slingshot, but for the life of me I can't figure out what SWO means ?

 

Thanks,

Well, you go into the right bar, at the right time, and you find the right woman and you say the right things and... oh, sorry, you're a lefty.
