    Hello! Up for sale is a 3/4" thick 6061 aluminum chalice. The finish is a scotch brite satin. It will ship with a set of tapered bands, flat pouch, and five 3/8" steel balls. GONE!

    Just got the Pocket Predator Standard in aluminum from Bill. Had to change the bands over to R/handed, no big deal. Has a nice heft to it, took it out for a few shots, so far me likes. Still very much pocket-able as the A+ but you know it's there.. The camo is well done, only time will tell how...

    Hello Everyone! On Friday I had a couple of hours before work, so I decided to make a quick chalice out of 3/4" thick 6061 aluminum! The finish is 220 grit, and the edges are hand beveled with a file. She is very comfortable to hold! Thanks for looking!

    Hey everyone! This is actually my submission for the altoid tin contest, and it's my latest PFS design. Made from 1/4" thick 6061 aluminum, and 1/4" bocote and 1/8" zebrawood scales! Just fits in the tin by about 1/16"! The bands are 10.75"X1/2"X1/4". Let me know what you think! -Josh

    Hello everyone! I have become addicted to not only making SS's but the PFS as well. After I shot my first pfs I knew why they were popular! There is almost zero wrist strain while shooting. So this is my third ss, made from 1/4" 6061 aluminum and 1/8" thick bocote hardwood scales! Overall...

    Hello everyone! This is SS #2 for me made from 1/4" 6061 T6 aluminum and mahogany scales. Its total length is either 3.25" or 3.5" (I can't remember actually ) Fork width is 2". I have not had a chance to shoot it yet because I literally just completed it! While I was brainstorming what I wanted...

    Ok, so I am wanting to make my own dankung style slingshot out of 1/2 inch either aluminum or plain steel rod. I already know that the aluminum would be lighter but would it have the strength for a heavier pull? Before I forget, I am going to be using tubes on it as well.
