Picture of Knex HESG(High Explosive Shrapnel Grenade)
Here you go. The first WORKING grenade of its kind!

Step 1: Building it.

Picture of Building it.
 Here you will build the thing.
1. One side. Notice how the red connector is placed, it's like a lock for the exploding part.
2. One of the other sides, pay attention to the yellow rod with greys pointing in.
3. Another view of the body. Notice the grey connector on the top. This is where the pin will attach.
4. Build these.
5. Pin. Like I said before, the thing hanging down is an unwrapped paper clip.
6. Insert the FIRING pin.

Great!!!!!! but could you mod it so it uses only knex pieces
builder968 (author)  Mr. Muggle5 years ago
 The rubberbands are unavoidable, but you don't need the paper clip, like I said, it's just or looks.
Oh, ok thanks, I don't mind the rubberbands I didn't like the paperclip. But i just didn't read the description carefully :-)

Hey builder, is this the grenade you were talking about? If it is, I'm going to build it tomorrow. It looks great, but I need one of my own to test it first.
builder968 (author)  TigerNod5 years ago
Yep. It use to just be nothing special, but I made it special :)
Good, I'm building right now.

Theres only 6 pictures. Please help!
builder968 (author)  chopstx5 years ago
Sorry, those were intended for the next step. I'll fix it when I get some time.

Yeah. I figured that out. But I don't get it; when you pull out the pin, it auto matically shoots. It's more like a gun...

builder968 (author)  chopstx5 years ago
You have to hold on to the handle parts. Once those fall off, the pin goes and shoots out the explosive.
Oh, I see. But it still shoots once you let go; once again, more like a gun.
