Delight Of The Blacksmith

Have made another "W" slingshot today, but this time, I did not use stainless steel.

Instead, I used wrought iron, and saltwater crocodile leather (from an old belt that, ahem, no longer fitted well).

Of course the handle is rotating and ball bearings are used as well. Self centering!

I sanded the iron after spray painting it black, to give it this special "antique" look.

For this design, the black Thera Band is called for. I cut it 24x11x5,5cm, 2 stripes per side. It must be a bit longer because of the "over the top of the ball" method. Lots and lots of power.

This is an entirely different slingshot, but I am quite pleased with it.

I cut it and then weld it. Wrought iron is too brittle to bend as long as you don't run a furnace.
