Drill two holes on both sides of the pole(big enough to stick your ziptie or other binder) at ONE end only so that you could stick a string through both holes then the other ( should be paralell)
Step 3: Setting Up Launcher
thread zipties through the two holes on the left side and then the right so you make loops then even out the two bands and stick the right ends of the bands through the right loop then tighten the ziptie then tie knots in the bands so they dont slip through then repeat on the other side when you are done you should have a tube with two sling shots on the end
Step 4: Sock
stick sock on the end so that the elastic bands dont break
Step 5: Broom Into Spear
saw off broom stick into a three foot section then sharpen one end
then file down the other end to make it flat
Step 6: Firing
