    The two drawings are of a riser for a stonebow. I am going to make it similar to a takedown recurve bow. Except the limbs are going to be held by a 16 gauge metal sheet sleeve that is screwed on to the riser. I decided to do this to mount the limb instead of the standard bolt, and washers. The top drawing is a front view of the riser. The bottom drawing is of a top down view of the riser. As you can see from the top drawing, I drew a cut out in the riser to give clearance for the ball to shoot through.

    Sounds like a cool project, will watch with interest!
    Have just finished a slingshot rifle myself.

    How did you go with the trigger on your other model?

    I still have to get a delrin rod for nut. But, besides that I drew out the plans for the trigger mechanism.
