Running Ambuck

slinging guava usually results in
guava juice with lots of pulp
No I didn't misspell it.  Sometimes there is just no substitute for natural products.  This is an "Ambuck" or that's what it's called in Nepali.  I was thinking that maybe I had stumbled across a previously unknown perfect yet naturally occuring projectile, then later my wife said, "oh yeah a guava."  Sigh... I am always the last to know.

Tying the back

 I know it doesn't look like it but there is order here even you can't see it.  But Slingmoore's most closely guarded secret is what happens between this point and the riveting.  I'll give you a hint thought, it would be easier to do if I had ten arms and legs, it requires all my fingers and a several tools with a lot of sweat and I am usually tired after doing two or three in a row.  Because of this I have rarely made more than five in a single day.  Keeps our skills razor sharp and our innovation at the ready.  Keep slinging.

Riveting the pocket

 I have started double riveting to minimize the unfolding that occurs after a time near the pockets extreme ends.  Two rivets ensures much more strength and durability and encourages the pocket to open upon releasing the trigger.  Good riveting is a thing of beauty.
