In this instructable, the bic pen launcher can be used anywhere, at work, in school, at home, your choice! The materials are very easy to find, again, you can find them at home, get them from your friends, or even take them from your co-workers! Also, the last page will tell you how to make good ammo for the launcher as well!
What you will need is:
- A classic Bic mechanical pencil
- 2 classic Bic pens (those with caps, not the clicky things)
- Duct tape (it is stronger than normal tape)
- A rubber band (medium sized)
- A couple small paperclips / A piece of paper / A couple BB's - These are the AMMO
- Scissors and pliers
Step 1: Removing Unneeded Parts
Now take your pens and mechanical pencil and open them up. For the pens all you will need are the bottom parts (kind of like caps but not the real caps covering the ink) and one of the tubes of the pens, everything else you can throw away or keep for future projects.
As for the mechanical pencil, take out the eraser and take out the lead inside (if there is any). Now take off the cap by either twisting it off or using your pliers to ply it out. Now press the clicky part (the bottom part which you use to add lead) and hold it there. Then using your scissors, cut the thin part that comes out of the mechanical pencil's tube when you click it, now your inside part of the mechanical pencil should come out of the tubing. All you will need is the inside part of the mechanical pencil, again, the rest can be thrown out or stored for later use.
