- A standard pen
- Some tape
- A stick of dry spaghetti
- Some kind of sharp object (screwdriver possibly)
We used to make these as kids at school. :)
NOTE: Sorry some people seem to have gotten the wrong idea. I should of been more clear of
HOW IT WORKS:
Inside the pen is still the ink tube, the spring, and a little white cap the ink tube fits into.
when you push the ink stick in, it get stuck inside the cap. as you pull it back, it creates tension in the spring. When pull back the ink stick far enough the white cap pops off the ink stick and flies forward from the tension of the spring.
This strikes and shoots a small piece of spaghetti quite far.
Step 1: Break Pen in Half
Step 2: Dig Out Button
Step 3: Enlarge Hole
Step 4: Start Construction
Step 5: Finished
Place in some spaghetti when you are done.
NOTE: What I've done here is a little bit wrong. I've notice that when the feeder is at an angle like this sometimes the spaghetti jumps out of the top. Its best to keep it straight if you can.
Step 6: Shoot Things!
You can do this over and over again and watch the spaghetti slowly go down into the gun as it gets shot out the front.
Fires quite far too.
Step 7: How It Works.
Just to show you how it works and how extremely simple it is to use.
You can push the ink stick forward and pull it backward very rapidly firing a lot of spaghetti.
