What mad scientist's laboratory is complete without a Shrink Ray? Answer: None. So whether you just need to make all of your worldly possessions fit inside a matchbox, or bring your enemies down to size, you need a Shrink Ray.
So you've searched all the pawn shops and flea markets in the area and you just can't seem to find one; seems like its up to you to build one for yourself. Luckily, you found this Instructable to show you just how to build one. To start, here's a list of materials you'll need: Adjustable Lamp, Vaccuum Cleaner Motor (or other similar motor), Assortment of Springs(optional), Cambell's Soup Can, And anything that you think would be cool(it is your Shrink Ray, so get creative). Now, the materials list seems kinda short, but that's because you have to figure out what you want on your Shrink Ray; however, I will tell ya'll what I used as we go.
Step 1: Prepare Your Lamp
Part One: Take the lamp completely apart(or at least mostly). Since it's an adjustable lamp there should be some sort of weight in the base; your'e gonna want to keep this because it's the only thing that's gonna keep your Shrink Ray from flipping over and completely destroying all your hard work. Obviously, it's important. Part Two: Reassemble the lamp, but leave out the insides(this includes the power cord, we dont want anyone trying to actually plug this thing in!). Sorry, no pictures... I made this after I built the Ray, but you can figure it out can't you?
