Bamboo and Oak Torpedo PFS.

13 May 2017 - 01:06 AM

Hey guys. I posted a pic of this in the "What are you Shooting" thread but I wanted to share it here. It is my first time doing actual scales and while I made a few mistakes I really learned a lot.

I'm happy with how it looks and the DKC Torpedo design is incredibly ergonomic.

The DKC design and Eric of Metrograde's "Ant Series" PFS have inspired me to work towards working with aluminum.

Of course all props to Danny for one of the best PFS designs of all time.

Was sick and bla bla... am back now.

Hey all.

I had a series of medical and financial issues that had me all tied up. I barely got to punish a can the past month.

I mainly want to apologize to the couple of guys who were waiting on old extra slingshots I promised to send out. I should have at least PM'd you guys. I should get those out this weekend. The Mule was not symmetrical so gonna make a new one. And I'm hoping to find the Tiny Turtle in my black hole of a closet.

Appy Polly Loggies.

Could someone post pics of a DKC Full Size Symmetrical Frame

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 !
