In this instructable I will show you how to make a mini war machine similar to a catapult but it has a slightly different design. Instead of a rope or rubberband, it uses spring power. And instead of one firing arm it uses two.
Sorry if this has already been done but i didn't see it on the website.
I came up with this idea when I was bored in school and found a few paperclips in the floor.
I wanted to throw paper without being noticed; thus the paperclipapult was born.
Vote for this in the Pocket-sized contest!
Step 2: What you will need
Needlenose pliers (optional)
4 medium sized paperclips
1 small sized paperclip
Step 3: Straighten out the Paperclips
They don't have to be perfect.
If you are using big paperclips use the pliers so it will be easier.
It should look like this.
Step 6: The Arm
Make sure you have 1 cm of slack of paperclip on one end and about and inch on the other end.
like the picture shows. Repeat this step for the second arm..
