Bought this pallet home from work I will cut one bake it and see how strong it is,does anyone know what wood it is.
Yes, the reinforced forks, in my opinion are a necessity with pine, now that I have some history with pine. Two of my first slingshots are pine. One is still one of my favorites, thick forks and both broke from fork hits so I will dowel them or steel rod them. This one I glued and doweled it back together.Ive tried it, when you bake it, it go,s hard and brittel, wont take a fork hit, you could make one and put 2 steel rods down the fork, jeff
Looks good though.Finished it half an hour ago I put it on the floor stood on it and pulled 1745* four strand and hard as I could several times to test it before I shot with it.I used 2040* four strand for the first twenty shots then fired twenty shots with the 1745* and it was fine.I wont be selling this one or making any more with this wood as two of the latts of the pallet snapped so easily trying to get the pallet apart so im now well aware of the fragility of this wood now I have handled it,here is a picture of it.
