    :D I tried this awhile ago. *high five* for perfecting it

    I am making something similar to this but with a different mech... Your clip looks like it works better than any I have built for white rods so, if you don't mind, I'll borrow it.

    sure bro, no problem :)

    It worked a lot better! I just didn't use the clip pusher thing. I made a hinged lid to it.

    make a bigger mag, then make it handheld, then it will be too good and can you make a version without the big wheel and the massive motor. i have the red box connected to the motor ,and the grey ones. so plzzz plzzz make.

    instead of the big wheel you can also use the smaler wheel and a normal wheel 2 times,, the mag is pretty easy to mod, just make a copple of mags and put them on top of each other :p

    im gunna use a small wheel and make it a bit smaller, thanks.

    cool, the wheel is used for making the motor slower and much stronger so if you use just one small wheel it will probably not be strong enough. but you can always give it a try, this is just a concept for an automatic firing mechanism so go ahead and make it better !

    yeh thanks for the reply i might make and i can make it a bit smaller, thats really inspired me.

    thanks man im glad i subscribed your really helpful

    BEAST!!!! man!! maybe you could mod it to make the base stabler?

    you have to connect them with the y-connectores, be sure they are all on the right place :p

    i tryed that....the y connector on the right(pic 5) goes in but the other doesnt

    Sorry man but i really cant see your problem. i could try to solve it if you post a picture...

    qu'est ce-qui ne mache pas ?

    can you do it without that big gear because i dont have one of them??

    I'am sorry for reacting so late but I was at vacation and was not able to go on the internet for 2 weeks :p the big gear is used for slowing down the motor and giving it more power,, if you switch the two gears your motor will be a lot faster but have less power :D you can do it with a small gear and an average gear but the motor will probably be to fast and will not have enough power but if you repeat that i think it will work so i mean - small gear -> bigger gear + small gear -> bigger gear
