I think I will attempt an hidden blade
I've seen the builds on the internet using a drawer slider mechanism or one from a toolbox. They are cool, but I want to try one with a really powerful locking motion.
So as I sat thinking on how to do this, I discovered that the answer was right in my hands.
A clicky pen. It shoots out quickly, locks in place sturdy, and then shoots back in. I think that combining this "clicky pen" mechanism with the drawer slider mechanism, I could really do it.
Any ideas/tips/criticism/comments on what to do here?
