The Elasto-O-Matic RBG-5 (rubber band gun five)
The crème de la crème of Binder Shooters...
My interest in rubber band shooters, goes back to my childhood.
I'm sure we all had a rubber band shooter aka binder gun when we were kids!
I was searching the internet and came across this site:
I really liked his shooters.
So, I like the idea of shooting 5 rubber bands in sequence. (one after the other)
I used his firing method of his P302 ARC II 5 rounds.
This shooter has a safety on it. (It works, for real)
It also has a ammo holder.
Will hold up to 15 rubber bands.
You do not have to follow my plans to the tee.
You can design your own, maybe make a different handle, shorter barrel, many options.
If you do decide to make one, make sure and post a picture.
Well, lets get onto the instructable.
Step 1: Materials Needed
Materials needed to build the Elasto-O-Matic RBG-5
1. Wood ( I used KOA, Walnut Allowood, White Oak, and Ash.)
a. I used 3/4" for the box and the shooter parts are all 1/4".
2. Dowels ( I used Walnut for the grips and poplar for the trigger mech.)
a. I used a 1/4" for the trigger and safety and 7/16" for the pistol grips.
3. Screw Eyes
4. Felt Bumper Feet
5. Barrel Hinges for the case, available from rockler.com
a. 10mm concealed hinge
6. Spring (something bigger then 8lbs safe working load)
7. Magnets for the box holder. I needed 6 of them.
8. String for the safety. About 10" worth.
8. Of course, rubber bands aka binders for all you northerner's (I use no. 32 binders)
I did all my designing with my CNC (Computerized Numerical Control) software.
You could make the shooter without the CNC.
You could cut all the parts with a bandsaw or scrollsaw.
