Introduction: SPC (Sawblade Pocket Crossbow)

Picture of SPC (Sawblade Pocket Crossbow)

This is a fun instuctable that is easy to make and there are not many instuctables on it. This idea for a pocket crossbow came from Slurpey801. I just made it with a hacksaw blade. The only problem with finding a good pocket crossbow is that most instuctables are for ones that use rubberbands for the power so its not a real bow. So I'm making a instuctable for one, enjoy.

I am now in anyway responsible for injuries caused with this crossbow, do NOT aim at eyes, use common sense. I have shot myself and it drew blood.

First you start by making the bow im going for a recurve, so bend it it into shape with the pliers. Then with the dremel make the place for the wire on both ends. Then cut a long length of wire then hold both end so its doubled on itself. Place the middle on one end of the saw blade and twist so its a sort of rope. When you get to the end wrap around the other end make it tight though it needs to be a bow. Now your done with the bow part.

Step 4: The Rest of It

Make mark with a pencil on a popsicle stick a little over halfway down then cut with the coping saw then lay that aside. Grab two more and make a cut big enough for the bow and fit in then take out tak the other piece fit it between the others and make the same cut. Then go 2 inches over and make 2 incisions 1 centimetre long quarter inch deep on the 2 pieces from before, then cut out with the xacto knife. Next cut one more small piece.

Step 5: The Trigger

First cutout the trigger in the shape above, then using a small drill bit go through the two other pieces and the trigger.

Step 6: Assemble

Follow the above pictures to put together. Basically you just glue it all together and put the paperclip through.

Step 7: Finishing Touches

For this part just take the rest of paperclip and straighten out. Then bend it so it is a rectangle with no end then make 2 more bends so it there is a diagonal angle then strait. Next fit on to the back of the crossbow stock and hot glue it on. Then add some duck tape as in picture.

Step 8: Bolts

windshield wiper spring steel works too. Little bit stiffer but more power wouldn't be a problem now would it?
