Introduction: How to Make Nightwings Escrimas.

Hi Guys! today I'm going to be showing you how to make nightwing's escrima sticks using PVC, also please vote for me in the PVC challenge and feel free to ask any questions! Time to get started!

Step 1: Stuff You Need.

This is what you will need.

  1. four feet of 3/4 inch PVC cut into two feet sections.
  2. eight PVC couplings and two PVC caps.
  3. black or silver spray paint and acrylic sealer.
  4. a hack saw or a dremel with a cutting bit.
  5. black electric tape.

Step 2: Cutting.

Cut your PVC into four pieces of two and a half inches and two sections of two inches and one section of two and a half

Step 3: Painting.

Paint the couplings and caps black, paint the middle sections blue then apply the sealer.

Step 4: Assembly.

Put the couplings together by using the two and a half inch pieces, the twelve inch pieces and the two inch pieces. The twelve inch piece connects to one of the couplings and that connects to the two and a half inch piece and then put the coupling and then the two inch piece then the cap. Connect the coupling to the other end of the pipe put the two and a half inch piece between the two couplings Do the same to the other twelve inch pipe

Step 5: You're Done!

wrap your handles in black electric tape or spray paint them black and then you're finished! Thank you for viewing my instructable and remember to vote for me!

Hey, I'm a little confused, are the longest pieces supposed to be 1 foot or 2 feet?

author

The middle section should be a foot.

I only had to buy couplings and spray paint

About how much did it cost for all of this? It seems pretty cost effective, and it looks legit

Hey what sizes did you get with the couplingss.

author
thesuperninja2 (author)mitch78782016-07-25

the couplings and pvc pipe are both 3/4 inch.

ZiggyBaggins made it! (author)2016-05-25

Took a while to make and the paint didn't do good but those are all my faults. It was a fun project!

Question, did you prime them?

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-05

I got a paint and primer in one spray paint for both the blue and black.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-05

Ooh, how much did you pay for it?

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-05

I never checked but probably around 20 dollars.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-05

Oh dang!

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-05

I also needed to buy extra paint for it because I messed up on one part.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-05

What did you use to cut it?

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-05

I just used a hacksaw. I think next time it would be better to use a circular saw. I might make another one for someone else.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-05

Ok kool. Could you post a pic of them connected? I cut everything but I think I'm gonna use pvc glue to glue em cause they're staying together to well. I actually used a hack saw to start all the cuts, then I finished em with a jigsaw.

A few days ago I cut the connecting piece off with a hacksaw and decided to leave whatever was left inside the stick so the rim is thicker. I then put the piece of the escrima stick I just cut off into the other stick so it evens it out. In conclusion, the rims are now thicker.

Nice. Did you use pvc glue? Cause my pvc isn't staying in place very well.

author
thesuperninja2 (author)Bpf2016-06-09

I did not use PVC glue i just used a rubber mallet to hammer them on.

author
Bpf (author)thesuperninja22016-06-09

Aight, thanks.

author

Me too.

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-07

I painted the pvc before putting all the pieces together but after they were cut. After I painted them, I put them together with a rubber mallet. I repainted them after that and marked off the areas I already painted with painter's tape. Finally, I used the acrylic sealer.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-07

And they're staying together ok? Is the sealer really mandatory?

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-07

The sealer just keeps the paint good.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-07

But are they staying together good.

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-07

They are staying together great. I can't even make it budge.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-07

Ok. I think I'll have to use glue anyways.

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-07

Good luck!

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-07

Thanks! I'll post a pic when I'm done.

author

Or you could try using a rotary tool.

author
Bpf (author)thesuperninja22016-06-06

I actually used the dremel to sand the writings off.

author
thesuperninja2 (author)Bpf2016-06-06

Cool.

author
Bpf (author)ZiggyBaggins2016-06-05

Is this what you did? I get the 2 feet sections, cut 5, 2 and a half inch pieces, then cut two, 2 inch pieces?

author
ZiggyBaggins (author)Bpf2016-06-05

I got 5 feet of 1 inch pvc and cut the extra foot into the smaller pieces.

author

Nice job. They look great:)

author
Bpf (author)2016-06-04

So I'm supposed to cut the two feet sections into 4 pieces? PLEASE REPLY

author
thesuperninja2 (author)Bpf2016-06-05

Yes. you cut it in to four different pieces

author
Bpf (author)thesuperninja22016-06-05

So lemme get this right. I get the 2 feet sections, cut 5, 2 and a half inch pieces, then cut two, 2 inch pieces?

author
Bpf (author)2016-06-03

The 2nd step is REALLY confusing! Could you put some more pics of it up?
