Pickle Bone from Can-Opener

04 May 2017 - 02:27 AM

Hello Everyone,

 

A while back I received a surprise pack from one of the greatest builders. Randy aka Can-Opener sent a gift box full of treasures. One of them was this particular Pickle Bone made of the same color combination G10 as my previously traded Can-able.

 

I’m enjoying the Pickle Bone and was waiting for the changes of the weather to show her colors and abilities outside.

 

First of all if you’re looking for a pickle style shooter and the slightly larger fork gap is not an issue (for competition reasons) I can highly recommend this design. From A-Z it’s a well thought out, easy to handle shooter that can work great with various band strengths and at full butterfly. A good weight of G10 and the cca. ¾” thickness adds for the stability. The cup shape fork sinks into the hand nicely. A slight cant (about 5°) made the aiming smoother and helped to speed up the whole process as well. Since the forktips are shaped to form a curve this means they are less to cover the sight of the target.

 

Wrap and tuck works well, but attention is advised as always. The angle of the forks might alter the wrap if the groove is not deep enough. But this outline makes a great natural pointing feature, since the index finger may be hold in line with the elastics.

All in all the Pickle Bone is a slingshot that absolutely worth to have in the inventory. Template is available as far as I remember!

Thank you for watching!

Plinker PFS by Toolman

05 November 2016 - 12:17 PM

Hello Everyone,

 

The Plinker PFS is a state of the art slingshot from Toolman! This tiny frame is a chopped version of Dayhiker's Lil' Plinker. Before I tell you more, just take look at this beauty.

This is not just a charming, high quality work, but also has a great functionality. This video just shows how handy the Plinker PFS is.

The metal core frame came to me as a part of my trade with Toolman. I was happy to receive a cup style PFS and all the images shown a nice build. Received it and yes that's what I was hoping for.

 

Aluminum core, bonded and pinned. G10 yellow spacers, dual layer orange and bright green G10 mid section and a high quality Carbon layer at the top. The mosaic pins are eye catching just as well.

 

The weight is nice, especially for a small sized slingshot like the Plinker PFS. Feels solid, and since it's quite cold here it also feels warmer than usual, thanks to the G10 scales. All the rounds are well thought out, no hurting edges could be found. I was using it in straight up orientation for first with a shorter band-set. The short forks were sinking and hiding between the supporting fingers.

 

I was missing a groove from the inside of the fork, but was moving a bit with the wrap and tuck.

 

I'm happy to have the Plinker PFS, it is awesome as a build and shoots just as well.

 

Thanks for watching,

Coffe at 20meters - BeerCan at 0 :)

01 September 2016 - 01:15 PM

Hello Friends,

 

For some time I started to mix 10-15 and 20m shooting. Sometimes 25m but that's not regular. Using the same bandset and same frame I enjoy the OTT aiming. Still shoot ear lobe length the most but feeling a strong tendency to corner of the mouth anchoring. It surprised me, but without any pouch twist only straight thumb "trick".

 

Recognized I shoot better when my skin at thumb is in better condition. After my finger print is suffered it is a bit harder to get to the smooth release.

 

I was shooting paper targets at 20m. Still like it but the sound impact is not impressive at all and it's hard to get on a flow. Simply because I just can not see the point of impact during shooting. So cans are fun to shoot for me. Good size, challenge and interaction.

 

Anyway I recorded a shooting session. I had a better one with a can cut, but no video no proof :D

 

Hope you will like it. Tried to speed up the video flow and make it easy to follow.

FlatCat OTT - Impressions

01 September 2016 - 04:17 AM

Hi Folks,

 

I had a couple words with Byudzai back in January 2015. He had a night spent with insomnia and he used the extra time to start figuring out an exciting attachment and just made a thread of his journey. This recent OTT FlatCat is originated from those times, however as I followed his steps it’s clearly visible nothing is smooth and straightforward. But his efforts are well spent.

 

FlatCat OTT is a cool slingshot. The design is clean, easy to get the idea and works simply. Accuracy and feel is great. Pocketable and small sized but feels just right in the hand. Can be used with the pre cut bands (needs almost no time to change the bands) and single flats too. Alex made sure his bands are all clean cuts – a big thumbs up. He have a special tool and device just for this purpose.

 

Liked the 3D printed clip. I’m mostly shooting with right hand hold nowadays, but enjoyed switching hands to fully explore the potential of the right handed clip mount. If you see the video, my first shot with right hand was spot on out of the box.

 

To make something simple and smooth it usually takes difficult and crazy amount of actions. As I know how much work is spent with this design (just as with TTF FlatCat) I really appreciate the trade with Byudzai.

Thanks for your time, :)

BareBone

18 August 2016 - 04:02 AM

Hello Everyone,

 

This ring is called - The BareBone

 

Made this sculpt a while ago. This ring was an anatomy reference help at the sculpting course and also a fun project as a bareback aid. After some time it was printed out in stainless steel, tumbled and in this case nickel plated.

 

I don't like to distort anatomical details, but for this purpose forehead, zygomaticum and maxilla are all distorted, just as os nasale is reduced to make it possible to wear with comfort. When sculpting and printing with details like these many of small areas are blurred out by the printing. To avoid erosion of details it is advised to strengthen and "over-articulate" some smaller forms. The slot was built in via CAD, head is polygonal. Holds double TBG. Pictured with 15mil straight cuts and a smaller pouch.

 

Inspiration from Matt (YSEO) and Volp :)

 

Thanks for watching, Wish a great upcoming weekend :)
