Nice work Airsmith
still somehow reminiscent of weapons parts tho. Is that intentional?
Maybe hydraulic recoil mechanism? :D

now thats giving me some ideas weapons ummmmmmmm lol

auctually when i start getting out of the gun mood i just pop in a peice of metal and see what i can create out of it, and iam getting to like that i can use wood cutters on aluim and other metals...it makes my mind just go for come creative stuff..

stay tunned in iam off to the shop to make a flute i love making stuff so instruments are on todays menu of ideas
