    Hi After my first boardcut slingshots i tried with naturals. About 50 % of my slingshots are getting cracks in the drying process. I'am spending some time finding good forks, so it is a shame. Is it all about patience and let them dry for themselves? Can somebody help?

    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...
