Introduction: Electromagnetic Spiderman Weblauncher

Part ONE of the webshooter how to.

We will soon upgrade it, make it more powerful, add the "web" :>

Step 1: Materials and Tools:

Bill of materials:

- some wire for all the electrical connections

- copper wire (make sure its coated, the red insulated stuff will work also though, just no BARE copper!)

- 1mm aluminum sheet (size depends on your wristband)

- wristband (from an old watch or just a leather strap, modified ladies belt)

- disposable camera board

- 2 momentary switches

- old CD case

- 5-10 caps from cameras OR 1 big capacitor 350V 800uF

- 4mm screw aka projectile (make it around 10mm long, the coil 15mm long)

- LOT of patience and common sense !

TOOLS:
- drill (dremel will do)

- handsaw / jigsaw

- soldering iron

- hot glue gun + sticks

- sharp knife

- screwdriver

Step 2: The How-to-video Guide:

BE CAREFUL! Its high voltage!! Never touch anything with both hands, when you tested the circuit!

The charge can kill you or hurt you. Always short the caps with a "heavy" screwdriver or something.

i can use a 9v battery?

I want make this but i not understand because i speak spanish xD

A picture may be closer???

The ummmmmm like tutorial for the web sorry my bad

Any help is much appreciated

Hey I am a beginner at this stuff and I have watched the tutorial on YouTube and I was wondering a couple questions. I was wondering if you could make a more descriptive tutorial for us beginners

I do not support lazy guys...look for it -.- come on

Hey I'm a huge fan of your channel on YouTube and I love this specific project and I am just wondering where I should hook the wires to the metal tube and run into the capacitor banks and I may have more questions thank you for your patience again huge fan lol

Wires to the metal tube....ok....you better start with something else my friend. This thing can kill you. Start with something simpler for the beginning.

You probably get this a lot but I checked all the previous comments and didn't see it so I'll ask anyway...
Where can one find a schematic for this capacitor charging circuit? Where can one find a schematic for any capacitor charging circuit?
Thanks and sorry in advance ;)

Its upped here and on youtube. You dont even need a diagram, just follow the instructions.

So there is no schematic- just instructions?

Thanks for your patience.

Rather than use the camera's charging circuit, I want to build my own circuit on a PCB. That way I can make it smaller (even watch-sized) and thus more realistic. That's why I asked for the schematic ;)

NEXT step you genius xD video at the end.

Just a tip don't make the people who are viewing, commenting, and potentially voting feel stupid.
