Watch: Homemade Trigger-Fired Slingshot Made of Scrap Steel and Wrenches

Ever wanted to watch a skilled craftsman build a trigger activated slingshot with metal scraps and old wrenches? Of course you have. And here’s your chance!

In another interesting video from Jimmy DiResta, we see the mad genius hard at work conjuring up another interesting mechanical creation using stuff that was lying around his shop. And in the end we have a sculpture that can also sling a shot pretty dang well.

Something tells me he doesn’t have too many rats running around in his shop, and if he did, this would be a pretty good way to wipe them out.
