Quoted from TopMoose:
I finished designing the plastics a couple of weeks ago - tailoring and perfecting the shapes - and then looked into getting them fabricated in acrylic. I did a small project last year at Ponoko.com, but with materials, laser cutting, shipping, tax, setup fees, etc., this project would cost me about $90. Then I remembered that my main library downtown has a "makerspace" with all sorts of cool gadgets, including a laser cutter/engraver. Price: free to members. I'd just have to bring my own sheet of acrylic, which I picked up at Lowes for $11. I even had enough acrylic to make a couple of extra slingshot plastics and a few protector pieces for the high-impact areas.
The downside is that there's a two-week waitlist to use any of their equipment. But the wait is over and today was the day! I documented the whole process, which took about 40 minutes from setup through cutting. Here's a video of the machine in action.

Total cost: $11 for the acrylic, $2 for downtown parking.
Now I just have to wait for my printer to finish the graphics.
Love the headphone/guitar plugs for arrows, that's a kick ass idea. Looking great. Just wish I had the balls and knowledge to try to take on something like this...
Who here can't say that we have done some questionable things, that we look back on, or explain to others and they say WTF were you thinking. I have a healing wound on my finger from just such a thing. And scars to prove some of the others...
