Thanks man ! I never ended up tapping the top like I said . Maybe order an other two try couple more ideas. But I beat the one side down the belt sander that was interesting was going do both sides but as I flipped in hand kinda like just one side . See how it shoots

Great looking mate馃憤馃徏馃憤馃徏

The side of the climbing 8 where puts the inscription was originally like this? Or was blue like the other side and you filed it?

Other question, what type of plastic/rubber is the one you have put in the forks?

Great job
New there kinds different sizes in thickness the small circle side is higher than the big circle. So I just used the belt sander with 120 grit and shaved them flat and even . Is that what you were fishing for ? The rubber over forks is 3/8 od and 1/4 id (10mm 6mm) I just used hand sanitizer to lube up and bit of luck and push on . Alcohol makes latex slippery. Guess the tube for spear gun or something I got some from @bingo

I tell ya what bud...
you show it can shoot 3/8", i'll gladly purchase!
Started a new job this week. FINALLY... but will have funds in a short time. That looks great! and we all know this material will save lives, so i guess it can withstand a fork with out any major issues. It maybe on the tad small side, but my china model make me feel like my hands are a monster, and that still works out just fine. Nice job man. You may have a business on the side.
I try some 3/8 with it I normally use 1/4 just because I cam get 5000 for 40 dollars and I don鈥檛 have pick em up . 3/8 is 45 dollars for 1200 but I give them a go . Hey best of luck the new job man that鈥檚 good news . I get some more 8s can get black blue and red

Yea that was a good move. Easy to make complicated and jack it up, simpler is better. Do you remember the Figure8 that Alfred E.M. had where the maker took the cutoff and welded it back on as a palm swell? I bet there is a photo floating around here. Never saw another like it.
I bin looking for that one he had was having trouble finding it . Always thought it was cool

I went to a climbing shop to get a few of these for slingshots.. They had no idea what they were. Did you get yours online?
Ya Amazon we pay little more than our USA 馃嚭馃嚫 friends but we can get them . You never use these to climb there not stamped with any rating of weigh or anything like that . Sure a stamped one be more 20 dollars for two but make a good slingshot
