Start with Simple-Shot's Jelly Bean Occularis and add a 70' Psychedelic vibe and here is what you get. 

 

I made this from Lucite, three 1/8"  pieces. Sanded it to 3200 and then polished with Blue polishing compound. I think she turned out purdy!! Attached File  Jelly bean 1.jpg   57.77KB   77 downloadsAttached File  jelly bean 2.jpg   51.36KB   41 downloadsAttached File  Jelly Bean 3.jpg   58.85KB   41 downloads

Little Foot "The Irish"

12 April 2017 - 10:44 AM

Ordered one or YSYEO's Little Foot Cores a few weeks back. I had been wanting to do a build with micarta and other manmade materials but was afraid of messing with epoxy and getting every thing lined up. Before this build I basically just laminated my stock together and board cut it. This time I used a top bearing up cut bit and Matt's core as a template. I traced out the design on my stock and rough cut it(still very close) attached the rough cut scales to the core and then used the router bit to even it up. I did not use epoxy on this I used Gorilla Glue's new clear non foaming formula. I tested it on some scraps first and after 24 hours I could not pry it a part with a pry bar(I did try using a pry bar.) 
I used canvas micarta for the core and some scraps that my sheet good vendor threw in with my micarta order. I built a little glueing frame to keep the scales from slipping and glue up went without a hitch. I then proceeded to drill holes and cut slots for the slot method of attachment......That went terrible awry. I threw it in the trash...yep. Then I fished it out. I wish I'd take photos of the faux pas so you could see what a good recovery job I did. But I was too miffed to do so. I filled the drill holes with 1/8" copper pin stock, then I mixed some epoxy and filled the slots with that. It took two applications but it worked great. I drilled my holes for pins and rounded over the edges. Then I tried to go all Lewis Pride on it. I wet sanded down to 3200 grit and then put it on the buffer for 10-15 ,minutes. Shines like glass I tried to get the camera to catch it but it just cannot do the finnish justice. Nathan Masters showed me some of his customs at the MWST and ever since I've been inspired to create something like that. Not sure I ever will but I will keep trying. Let me know what you think.

Monday Slingmail Double Header

13 March 2017 - 02:42 PM

I received these two Beauties today. The Weber SlingBow from E-Bay. its in pristine condition I wonder if it were ever shot. The tubes are dry rotted but unworn. The Howitzer I picked up of the Slingshot forum from member Jake Heaton for $40.00. Thanks Jake, It weighs almost a pound and a half. Can't wait to band and shoot. I am not sure what size/type of tubes for the Weber, any suggestions would be appreciated
