Jörg Sprave loves showmanship, but he's no weapons freak. He's a 48-year-old electronics salesman. In his garage, he constructs elaborate devices out of wood, metal and strong elastic bands. Every week he presents his latest contraption on YouTube. His Slingshot Channel has almost 300,000 subscribers, most of them from the US.
