A small clothespin gun that is easy to make and is very powerfull with very few and easy to find items. Can (depending on clothespin) can sometimes shoot through paper. note: can actualy cause some one to bleed/shoot eye out. Shooting sharp objects is not recomened. =)
Step 1: Whats needed:
there are a few things needed as said before:
wooden clothespin (plastic will NOT work). These can be bought in a pack of 50 for a few dollars
knife or bottle opener
small rubber band or any rubber band. Like clothespins can be bought in large quantiies cheaply
pair of tweezers (not needed but recomended for repairs/adjustments)
Step 2: Disasembling the Clothespin
As the title says take apart the clothespin. Mind to not break the wood part or bend the metal. To me the easiest way is to kind of slide the clothespin apart
Step 3: Attach Trigger
Now this is were it gets a little tricky. What you are pretty much doing is puting the metal back on one on the other side. Most clothespins on the metal part have a short part and long part, make sure that the short part is on the flat or outside and the long on the bumbed or inside of the clothes pin. Once again it is easier to slide it on but to kind of open it. The spring like part must be going towards the the pointed end and the long part wont be in a slot.
Step 4: Setting the Trigger grove or holder
On the inside or bumpy side there is a curved area were the spring once stood. What needs to be done is that the curved must be cut/filed to a vertical divet were the longer metal can be held in. To do this is to take a knife or bottle opener and cut/scrape the wood down and in. To make sure that is good enough take the top as shown in last pic and pull it back and see if the trigger stays in the divet.
