Instructables

Why is there not many good knex "explosives" on this site or anywhere. People post your bombs and grenades!

I want ALL knex weapons makers to post pictures of bombs and grenades that actually explode here. I am tired of so called grenades that just shatter

Who expects people to put real explosives, in knex grenades? Seriously, "normal" rubber bands do not have the power to kill. My HE grenade is pretty small but not many fragments fly out. It is still somewhat dangerous, I got hit in the eye by one of the fragments.

Intro.JPG
i have tried your grenade but was very sad with the results. didnt explode when i threw it but then did "explode" when i walked down the hall and picked it up, and when i say "explode" i mean fall apart in a blast radius of about 3/4 inch. i do like the pin function though.
You need to make the first rubber band you place tighter for the best results.
idk man it just wasn't my thing, my fave grenade is this http://www.instructables.com/id/KNEX-GRENADE_3/

probably people don't make many because they can be dificult to controll (ive had a couple explode on me) or for mine like explosives, the trigger (tripwire, remote controll, time) I've seen some that act like that party poppers where you pull the string and many greens are fired out of muti barrels, It would be nice to see more someday.
How about filling a knex prism with firecrackers? Leave one fuse sticking out and bingo! You now have a knex bomb! I made a design of one before but not using firecrackers. I recommend airbursting these to maximize blast radius. With some crackers, not only fragments from the knex will go flying but will hot fiery bits of burnt paper and powder go everywhere. I am not held responsible for any injuries caused by this.

no it doesnt it shatters and releases the schrapnel inside still its pretty cool
It's not as bad as others. I've seen some that really just shatter and slide across the floor.
yes but it doesn't forcefully explode and that is what I am looking for
How about my grenades? Check them out I mean the earliest one. Not efficient on rubber bands considering the size but it won't go kafriggn' boom in your pocket. The other one is pretty unstable but does the job!
Ok, too bad. I want an awesome grenade so i'm going to stop with guns and focus on grenades =P. I only have basic parts so it might be hard though.
I know about the iac war bomb look at the rest of the posts on this question it has been said 3 times btw i liked ur gattling gun
Ok, check this out. Pros: It explodes! Powerful! Cons: Very few pieces. Fragile. Whatcha think? Sorry if i don't reply today. I'll be asleep.

pretty good but I like my grenade better it is safe to put in your pocket unlike most knex explosives
Yea, too bad i don't have any y clips or spacers =(. I might be ordering some soon though.

P.S. Where do you live? It says you posted at 1:06 A.M.
Look at my profile It says there.
My r-8 is safe if u have a rubber around it, but i don't think it explodes.

Fred the Penguin (author) 5 years ago
yes I know I am canadians bomb is powerful and splodies are good too.I am not saying these aren't good there great but I am saying that there aren't enough of them. When I finally post the button trigger this will be alot easier.

You better look at the Knex War Bomb by I am Canadian. It's incredibly powerful. Here is the link and a picture.
