Hi brooklyn it is me I thought I would give making slingshots a go, I never thought I would have the patcience but it really is addictive I tried wood but using the dankung method of slots in the sides of the forks, the wood between the grooves kept breaking and was not very strong so I found some hardboard and tried that it is incredibly strong varnished,or polished with bees wax thay are also nice and smooth. all the slingshots are tested with the strongest band I have which is the 1745* but I sell them with 2040* band attatched as I dont use it,None of this has cost me anything but time really and can make one in under 2 hours as I already have the board in the shed.I have tried three different methods of attatchment and the one they seem to like on ebay is the dankung attatchment. I have made the newest one thinner and a little squarer it looks alot nicer my family like it as well as for the prices,im not looking to make alot of money just something to help fund it buying more tube and board,I figure I can buy an old unit from a car boot sale for next to nothing just waiting for them to start again,and the tubing is only around £4.50 for ten meters that is also something I have plenty of.back to pricing there are several ways to sell on ebay just trying a few,I find the best is to have a low packaging cost and .99p starting price some are going to sell for .99p others will be bid on so it is a small risk but the packaging only costs £1.37p as the slingshots are lightweight so it is about right.I would like to get around £4.00 for a slingshot plus postage after seeing what is available on ebay but you have to give people what they want everybodys after a bargain and I cant see the point in keeping them all.it is only a hobby but a great one.Work is picking up again so I will not have the time, soon be back on twelves and working all weekend again Here is a picure of the most recent.
