Introduction: Ruler of the Office
A pretty cool idea for when you are bored in your office or at home. This project only uses 6 parts!
Step 1: Parts
All the parts you need to build this are:
2x Mauly 32's
1x Mauly 32 with one arm detached!
1x Mauly 51
1x Modelling elastic band (a strong post rubber band can be used as well)
1x 20cm ruler or longer (but then ofcourse you need a longer elastic band
Step 2: Placing the Rubber Band on the Ruler (very Hard)
Now comes the hardest part of the project... placing the rubber band on the ruler!!! OMG!! But dont panic. heres how you do it:
1. Take the rubber band and cut it in half.
2. Place one end of the rubber on one end of the ruler.
3. See that wasent so hard was it now go and get some apple juice and clean the sweat off your forehead.
Step 3: Placing the Mauly on the Rubber Band
Now press the mauly 32 and watch the magic happen... it opens! Place the Mauly over the rubber band so it should grip the rubber firmly... now let go and it should get stuck on the ruler holding the rubber in place.
Step 4: Placing the "firing Trolley" Mauly
Now pull the rubber band through the Mauly 32 (with one handle detached).
After you had done this you should flip the mauly over so the hand is facing outwards.
Step 5: A Closer Look at the Mauly Without One Handle
JUst examine the photo... I think that your not that lazy and that you will manage to do that.
Step 6: Attaching the Last Mauly 32
This Mauly that we attach now should be attached in the same way as shown on step 3.
Step 7: Mauly 51
Now take the Mauly 51, the slightly bigger one.
Step 8: Attaching the Mauly
Now attach the Mauly 51 to the other end of the rulerwith one hand flat on the bottom of the ruler.
Step 9: Final Product
Now streach the launching trolley and attach the one hand to the little semi circular piece of metal on the Mauly 51.
Step 10: Preparing for Launching
Now flip the Mauly 51 downwards.
Step 11: Ready for Firing
Now place your fingers as shown on the picture and place the projectile in front of the firing trolley.
To fire flip the mauly 51very quickly up by using your thumb and at the same time push the ruler quite a bit down by the side by using your pointing finger. All of this should happen in a spring like action.
Step 12: Little Hint
HINT: You can use the front Maulys handles as a handle for better aiming experience.
HINT: If it is too hard to flip the Mauly to launch then either flip the one handle up with your finger or make a brand new creative launching system and send a e mail to me saying how its called so I can se it on instructables and comment it. (My e-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org)
