I've seen many members of this site make slingshots out of 8mm steel tube or bar stock, and I was just wondering how you'd go about doing this. Any advice is greatly appreciated.

I use a jig that I made and it really helps to keep everything the way you want it. I just heat the rod to bend it with a mapp gas torch. I like to use 1/4" rod the most, but sometimes I use 5/16".

You can probably cold forge it, but heat will help - except some kinds of stainless.
