If you only flattened the middle and put a small ball of epoxy on the ends?

I am going to grind a old center punch tip to do just that. Then I am going to add some copper ball ends to the arms. I just have to reduce the size to about 1 mm. Stay tuned for more pics soon.

I think it will be ready service ammo boxes. Something simple without tiny parts. I think the parts from MBH will work just fine for these boxes.

Sorry about not posting but I have kind of hit a wall with this build. I have all the finished parts to the launchers complete and ready to assemble but I just can not seem to get them done. Happens to all of us at times. Just got to get past it I suppose.

It happens yes. Just move on to another project, entirely. Or do nothing for awhile. When you feel refreshed you will return to it.
