A standard compact disc can be used as a quick and easy template for cutting
out slingshot mylar protectors. The diameter of the CD is very close to the
width of most slingshot bumpers. Trace an outline of the CD on the back of
your sheet of mylar. Remember to mark the center of the circle as well so
you know exactly where to slice the circle in half. Cut out the traced
circle, then lay a straightedge across the circle, intersecting with the
mark you made in the middle of the circle. Cut along this line to separate
the circle into two equal semi-circles. Crack, peel, and apply, and you've
got great, clean-cut mylar protectors for your slingshots!
