Introduction: DIY Pocket Slingshot
If you need a very compact slingshot, then a pocket slingshot might come in handy.
Be careful though, as this guy will pack a punch, more than enough to penetrate glass!
(I) am not responsible for damages or injuries you have done.
Alright, let's begin!
Step 1: Gather the Tools
The only tools you will need are:
- Wood saw
- A file / rasp
Step 2: Make the Slingshot "frame"
A slingshot needs 3 or 4 things to wreck havoc:
- A frame
- A pouch
- The band
And lastly, the payload.
To make the frame, you have to "decapitate" a bottle.
You have to cut the neck of the bottle, then smoothen the sharp edges.
Step 3: Make the Pouch
A slingshot needs a pouch & a band, well here, the balloon will serve both as a pouch & the band.
To obtain a DIY pouch, cut the balloon about 1,5-2 inch of the neck.
Try to make a clean cut.
Step 4: Assembling the Slingshot
The time has come to assemble the slingshot.
- Remove the (black) band from the bottle head, but we want it, do not cut it!
- Put the balloon on the bottle head.
- Try to remove the wrinkles.
- Replace the band.
- Gently roll the excess balloon back to the head.
Step 5: Have Fun!
Now, if you made it, congrats! Now, let's go 'n wreck havoc! Just make sure you don't hurt someone.
