I`m also buying one from the personal classified section elsewhere on the forum after reading what others thought of them. Considered one for a while though. don`t know how long it will take though, it`s made from titanium.

I ordered the Bi-Thor today. I liked how I should be able to use/setup different band types/configurations on a single model. Something most commercial North American models can not do. Plus I ordered extra tubing and a pouch.

The eastern slingshots are more ornate and have style over the western counterparts that are more utility in design. So it's refreshing to see some "style" come through along with function.

I'll try to make a video showing how to use the jig if I can. Most of it is in making sure the jig is right. You don't have all the bolts in to start. You begin at the center of the rod on the bolt for the handle bottom with only one bolt in at the top of the handle to make first turn. Keep bending handle around until you pass bolt hole for other side of handle.Place bolt in hole. Rod is bent in a closed "U" shape. Bend both forks out past next hole and place bolts for next turn. It helps to clamp rod down to jig at handle to keep metal down. Now you just make each turn and place next bolt for next turn as you go. Finally, for the ears of the fork,just wrap around bolt head for ear until rod is at a 90 degree to fork where it passes over the rod. I used a cutting disk on a 4" grinder to cut extra metal and then reheated each ear to cherry red and pressed them down flat.
I think much could be learned by making a jig and bending a coat hanger around it first. Then try 1/8" rod, then 1/4" rod, then use the size rod you want your slingshot to be. Mine was 5/16" cold rolled steel, because I thought it would take a few trys to do, instead of stainless like I finally want.
Biggest tip is to make sure you plan your jig for the size rod you are gonna use. You don't want to get it all made and find out that the rod is too thick to fit between any of your bolts.
All bending was done with a propane torch using mapp gas, heating until area to bend was "cherry red".
