    Nice. Thank you for sharing. What did you use for the rubber strips? If your welder is a bigger 230 volt stick welder, bending the concrete reinforcement bar would be easier with a carbon arc torch to heat the rods until red hot. I used mine a few days ago to make a horseshoe puzzle I promised to someone. I have attached a photo.

    thanks Phil,
    Your horseshoe puzzle looks awesome!!! I love the smooth bending that you did to them.

    As for my slingshot, I use the 6mm Black Square rubber.
    I didn't really think of using heat to make the bending process easier when I made it. But i will sure do what you suggested for my next project.

    Thanks. This was my 2nd such puzzle. The bends on the 1st were not as smooth. I learned how to move the hot spot along as I made the bend.
