DKC Torpedo style aluminium blank catapult.
Cut from a sheet of rolled aluminium it is very strong, meaning that the scales can be decorative without having to take any of the strain.
Scales therefore can be of almost any material; from cheap plywood, dense hardwoods, micarta, G10, glass fiber, carbon fiber, the list is almost endless.
The torpedo is widely regarded as one of the greatest pickle fork designs of all time. Simple handle scales and shaping and polishing the blank will quickly produce a PFS to be proud of.
130 mm x 50 mm x 6 mm thick so of a similar size to the traditional Milbro catapult
