I think a vice or clamp is vital to making slingshots. I dont know what i would do with out mine.

I would suggest adding a cutting board and plyers (or something else to hold rubber) to this, 
Rubber will only last / get good power if its cut right and on the slingshot right :)

Irrelevant if you are using tubes.

This really isnt for beginners only.  I have made 10 or more slingshots over the course of 2013 using these tools only, without a vise too. What I like to do is roll up a piece of sandpaper on a wooden dowel and using like a rasp to take of wood/metal more efficiently. I'm a 14 year old and if I could do it chances are you can too.

I own those exact rasps shown in the original post.  They are great for wood, but I would get some finer rasps for more detailed work.

For a starter set though, those and sandpaper will work fine.

Thanks, Hrawk.

I cannot recommend the coping saw that I got from HF... the ones at my local HF (portland saw brand?) do not allow the blade to be rotated!  I'm wishing I had spend the extra $3 to get one at the BORG (Big Orange Retail Giant) instead.  I picked up some of those rasps and a pack of sandpaper (and a couple pair of safety glasses for the kids) the other day though, so as soon as I get a new coping saw I'll be good to go!

Well that's strange. I don't think I've ever seen a coping saw that CANNOT rotate the blade.

 

Can you post a pic so that people know what kind of coping saw they SHOULD NOT buy ?
