Hey guys, today I have made a Lego Technic Spider-Man Web Shooter that actually fires web!

To follow the instructions just look at the pictures and read the notes.

Enjoy!

Step 1: The Pieces You Will Need

These are all the pieces you need. The color of your pieces doesn't matter one bit as long as they are the same type of piece. (except for the tan 1x3 connectors these are made to have less friction with other pieces)

Step 2: Base of the Shooter

For the shooter to properly attach to your wrist, the rubber band in front needs to be completely wrapped around both of the 1x15s as pictured above.

When the rubber band is around your wrist, it should be in front of the pegs so that it doesn't handicap the mechanism.

Step 34: Detensioning

Picture of Detensioning

The 1x2 technic piece centered in the first picture is a kind of kickstand. The thread needs to be loose for firing, the "kickstand" is very important to the firing of the shooter. The stand should be facing towards the technic piece underneath it when you are winding the thread on. After you are done with putting the thread on, flip the stand around so that the thread on the spool becomes loose. The stand should be facing forward so that the thread doesn't get caught on it. The bottom of the spool should be facing at a slightly steeper angle than the base of the shooter for the best firing results.

Step 35: Firing Preparation

The projectile sits in the crook of the L shaped technic piece. (make sure the black axle attached to the tip of the throwing arm is beneath the 1x15)

Hope you enjoy!
