Pocket Wire Crossbow





Introduction: Pocket Wire Crossbow

This tiny crossbow and the bolts are made out of 2 things; steel wire (a little thinner than a paperclip), and a rubber band. Although the crossbow is smaller than my palm it can easily hurl the bolts across my house at a good speed. Although one of the downsides to it's size is firing it is really hard.

I will try to make an instuctable on this sometime.

    im making one that works and simple let me know if you want to see

    I would love to see! I have tried making more myself but paperclips tend to be a tad to short and get metal fatigue to easily. In the past I used a wire I had gotten at Micheal's for jewelry or home depot(not sure on this but some sort of spooled metal wire that was ply-able.) Anyways long since run out of the wire and cannot remember exactly what kind I got.

    it looks coll U should make an instruckable of it

    Please make the instructable it looks SOO cool but i can't figure out how it's made. Keep up good work!

    umm...thats a sling shot not a crossbow...

    Technically it is, but unlike a typical slingshot it doesn't shoot by holding it vertical(the wire isn't braced that way). Instead you hold it as if it was a crossbow (the slingshot is held horizantally). I just call it a crossbow, but you can call it a slingshot if you like.

    A slingshot uses elastic to propel a projectile. A bow/crossbow uses the natural spring in wood to do that.

    Get your facts straight before correcting someone.

    I was agreeing with him..... I was just saying that "I" call it a crossbow.

    are you really arguing over this?

    the wire looks like from a hanger
