@VanO MAY THE FORCE BE WITH YOU
May the force be with you! Does that mean what I think?
Might want to check your mail if you haven't
@kennyg Holy small,hand-launched projectiles! That’s so exciting and they look great! They weigh in fully suited at 21g with the Unicorn sigma points shown in the photo. Lighter than I’m used to but they fly straight and stick straight out of the board when my stroke is good. That’s the way I like em too...almost disappear from view! Thanks Ken!!
Here’s the pics
VanO sorry my internet is down am using my wife’s phone and don’t do well with it. Will reply when back up
Well we knew that the steel wouldn't make the weight but it's the first step in this journey. It looks like the tip is not too flush or is there an O ring there that is protruding a bit?
It is an O ring. The points fit very well except for one I have that I think is a Target point. Strange! The threads are nice and snug though better than some high dollar ones I remember. Thanks so much!
Will be interesting to see how you get on with Tungsten billets. So far though, very nice!
Eric I do have some tungsten I picked up from another machinist they are perpetrators used for armor piercing projectiles but am still working with the steel until I get my licks down. It machines well but is expensive. The big dart manufacturers get bulk prices probably from China. Manually machined sets are going to be hard to get exact duplicates with unlike the CNC machining. VanO and I are working on a system that will combine materials in order to get the heavier weights out of things like steel, brass and possibly stainless steel.
