Introduction: Mechanical Pencil Staple Gun

A slightly modified pencil that shoots staples like ten feet. Note do not try to build this at school!

Step 1: What You Need

Lighter
Pencil
Razor Blade
Paper Clip
Stiring Straw
Tape
Pliers

Step 2: Stripping

Using pliers pull off the clip and take off the tip.

Step 3: Trigger Tube

Cut the stirring straw to the same length as the paper clip.

Step 4: Attaching Trigger

Heat up the paper clip and melt a hole through the eraser and take it out.
Put it through the straw and insert the paper clip through the hole and out
the other side about a centimeter and bend it over then bend the bottom part
down and tape the straw to the pencil.

Step 5: Taping Tip

Tape the lead advancing cylinder to the body of the pencil so when you push on the eraser two prongs come out.

     really dude, you need pictures and comma's in your supplies list.

    you really need to put pictures up.

    hey is there any jus like plain and simple way to make a mech pencil gun if so plzz tell

    Mine is clearer and easier.

    I once made something like this, but all it took was a bic mechanical pencil. I attached a string to a staple and bent part of it into a hook, and attached the string to the pencil. shoots over 5 feet and hook on!!!

    I just noticed how doom goat comented on the half assed instructables but i love how when typing half assed he managed to leave out the F in half Ironic is it not?

    step 3 you insert the paperclip through the stiring straw as a guide for the trigger I hope this helps I'm sorry I can't figure out how to get pictures on it though.
