Step 1: Bending the paperclip

Use the nose pliers to bend the paper clip into the shape seen above.
Cool! If you used thumb tack ammo, you could use this in a real situation. (If your office was invaded or a similar situation.)
Do you mean a way to store the ammunition on the thumb? I don't understand, my english is'nt perfect...
No, a thumb tack is a small sharp pin. It looks like this. <br>http://www.instructables.com/files/deriv/FDD/QZSU/HMVJ9RNC/FDDQZSUHMVJ9RNC.SQUARE.jpg <br>I'm saying that if you shot thumb tacks (pins) instead of foil, you could hurt someone, because pins are sharp. <br>
Oh okay. Well, it would definitely hurt :D
Yeah. :-0
can you use tape in sted of glue <br>
I don't think it's strong enough to hold the paperclip in place, but if you use enough, it might works :) The &quot;glue walls&quot; isn't necessary
Love it, it uses common house hold items, I'm looking forward to making this
Sweet :)
what size paperclip is it?
Sry for my late answer, i have'nt seen your comment before now. I actually don't know, but it is'nt the big deal, just bend the the edges so that it fit for the rubberband :) When you buy the staples, it is longer than on the picture, so just brake off the size you need.
