Gattling Gun Cyborg Arm

Maker Faire. I couldn't go only with one Cyborg Arm. Nah! I had to go with TWO FREAKING HEAVY CYBORG ARMS!

So, I made the second one. It's like the first one, just changing the pincers for some kind of gattling gun, that spins at high velocity and has a red led, giving the "FIRE" effect.

This Cyborg Arm has two problems:

1. Too heavy. You need the fitness of a sexy Latino gardener for wearing it for a long time. And it's heavier than the first one, so you feel like Hellboy.
2. It has the power of turning its bearer into an evil person. Look at our sweet Carley Jacobson (pictures). Now she feels the hunger for power and mass destruction!

But, still, you can make it for a cosplay, or just in case you want to delight yourself with images of your future robotic empire.

Step 1: Materials and stuff

Picture of Materials and stuff
I used the following stuff:

All the plastic trash I could get
Corner braces inside L (2in. x 5/8in.)
Corner braces inside L (1in. x 1/2in.)
1 9V battery clip
1 9V battery
1 big and red LED
2 220 ohm resistors
1 damaged small flashlight
1 big Thermos
1 damaged tower fan
1 damaged plastic table set for babies (I used the front support)
1 big electric toy car (I needed the motor, the gearbox and the wheel)
Something with a handle (like a toy iron)
1 switch
1 joystick
1 rectangular keyboard
8 PVC plugs (or any other cylindrical pieces)
black plastic junk pieces
Nuts, screws and bolts
Iron washers
Superglue (cyanoacrylate)
Cellulose sponges


Dremel Rotary Tool
Power drill
Wire cutters
Screwdriver kit
Soldering Iron

And don't forget:

1. If you don't have it, replace it!
2. Use protective equipment (dust mask and goggles)
3. Beware of drilled and soldered hot surfaces
4. Work in a good ventilated area.
5. Always have junk in stock.
6. Have fun.

Brutal! original y resuelto con ingenio, por lo del peso hay que
recordar que en una pelicula generalmente se tienen varios tipos de
"props" del mismo .... este sería el modelo "hero" para acercamientos y
primeros planos porque es el que se ve mejor en cámara ...

I can make and sell you one, but you have to pay the shipment.

I think you should make cyborg upper arms with missiles and a laser on the other

It doesn't actually shoot:(
M.C. Langer (author)  Spyro26011 months ago
But now you know. And knowing is half of the battle! :-)
Spyro26011 months ago
Does it shoot?
M.C. Langer (author)  Spyro26011 months ago
Please read my instructable and you will find out. Thanks! :-)
All your stuff is freakin cool! Have you tried to make many of your guns shoot?
M.C. Langer (author)  airsoftredneck9611 months ago
Thanks! My 3D printed tank launches a missile, and one of my next instructables will be a 3D printed action figure with missiles. Maybe one day, I will make a cyborg arm that launches missiles.
Sorry, any
