Hey everyone,

I´ve just finished ClickA - and I´m taking a little pride in it.
I built it to rock the "other place" a bit - and of course because
I found that challenge literally challenging - fitting a shooter into a
mint box is a nice thing to figure out.

I started with the question of how to attach the handle
to the fork in an elegant way, to make it a high quality shooter
that would fit into that box.. and into my hand..

The solution was rather simple:

Wood Screw Gas Auto part Fastener
, Body jewelry Wedding ring Finger Engagement ring Pre-engagement ring


A little spring taken from one of those lighters with piezo-ignition,
and two little steelballs from a 608ZZ ball bearing.

The core - 6mm of a rather stiff aluminum-alloy, laminated between
two layers of thick paper and covered with rather soft 2mm aluminum.

Wood Auto part Composite material Metal Hardwood
, Wood Auto part Art Font Metal


Some possible variations thought through,

Automotive design Tints and shades Art Font Wood
, Tool Wood Auto part Metal Fashion accessory


I decided to cold-forge brass pins (rivets actually - no glue was used
to implement them), because I wanted to make it a top-slot shooter.

This was one night´s result:

Font Art Sculpture Tints and shades Wood


I knew I would fall in love with this shooter..

Great engineering. But even greater craftsmanship... We have some geniuses here on this forum, and you're one of them, Bee-Man.

....I wonder if Charles had any idea of the awesomeness some of the solutions to his challenge would elicit?

I never realized until this morning that you made your own spring ball plungers for this slingshot. very clever! have you ever seen this type? http://www.mcmaster.com/#detent-springs/=vqhkb9 Just drill and tap a hole and screw them in place. Then you can adjust the spring tenision?

You sling is an amazing work of art! :) Very nice! :)

Live Long and Prosper :)

(also, because you posted this in Charles' competition towards the end of January, it qualifies to be nominated for SOTM running right now... and someone may have nominated it ;) )

Amazing concept and beautiful craftsmanship. You have a touch of Macgyver going on with that spring and lighter. VERY resourceful. Hey, we just might need to take away all of your duct tape and Swiss Army knife as well, Double Agent Be. You are dangerous. LOVE it! Keep rockin' on.

Oh, and those cold-forge brass rivets are the bomb! No glue. THAT is really exciting stuff right there!

Really love the clicking mechanism!
