Could someone post pics of a DKC Full Size Symmetrical Frame

19 April 2017 - 09:06 PM

Hey guys,

I couldn't make a post in template section.

If anyone has one of the symmetrical DKC full size slingshots I would greatly appreciate it if you could post a straight on profile view of it.

I'd like to make a PDF template of it. I'll post it in templates when I do.

I'm sure Danny wouldn't mind as it's been years since he's made slingshots.


Thanks

Hey Guys,

I've only recently gotten to the point where I cab poduce a board cut that I am fairly happy with.

I've done about 20 builds to get to this point. Some of which I messed up or lost interest in. I have a drawer full of them.

On a whim last night I went digging through it. I pulled out a Bill Hayes designed Ranger OTT(sm) I gave up on because I cut the handle a good bit short.

I decided to try and see if I couldn't make SOMETHING shootable out of it.

I've been thinking a lot about thumb and finger web support frames.

So I did some creative sanding giving me more grip to work with. I also found a piece of scrap Mahogany (I think) I decided to make the webbing er... brace with.

The back was already contoured so I had to cut a section out and sand it to make it flat so I could glue that on. It's not perfect but it's my first time ever joining hardwood to a board cut.

I sanded it up a bit, added rough band grooves, and it feels and shoots like a dream. I oiled it up and man that mahogany is lovely. I kind of like the oddball look. I may add a piece to the grip in the front for balance.

Anyway. It needs more work. But it's a surprisingly cool shooter for whst was basically junk to me.

Oh, and purely by accident I got the fork width exactly the same as my Colts. So I can aim it the same way with same anchor.

Thanks for reading. Will update !

Is making a Colt from a natural fork a bad idea?

Hey All,

I need some advice. I have a fantastic Oak fork that is the absolute toughest wood I have ever encountered. I am really loving the Colt these days. But on a search I don't think I ran across one.

Do you guys think the Colt shape and it's inherent stress points not lend themselves to natties? I know that middle finger groove and the forks shooting almost straight out above it is a strong stress point. But it is a brace grip frame.

This is the most promising fork I have run across and I want to make the most of it.

Thanks!

I wasn't planning on posting this one. I made this one today for function. But I was pleased how the revealed layering ended up looking.

I still don't have any major power tools. But I love the small sanding drums for my cordless drill.

The Colt is one great design. It's comfortable even when using enough elastic to throw 9/16ths bearings.

And it's one of the easiest to pocket full size frames.

The only real change I make is to narrow the handle up around where my ring finger sits.
