The slingshot guy is back with a $5 DIY crossbow project (VIDEO)

Everyone’s favorite nutty Bavarian slingshot engineer Joerg Sprave, who we have covered extensively here at, set the weinersnitchel to the side and picked up what may be $5,000 worth of tools to manufacture a $5 slingshot-powered crossbow.

Of course, you could go light on the tools and with only a wooden board, a handful of screws, a nail, and some slingshot bands become a Teutonic master of a DIY X-bow of your own in about an hour.

Insert obligatory warnings concerning the neighbor’s cat here.
