Introduction: Shrapnel Grenade

This is a simple yet effective knex grenade that when thrown fires blue rings up to a radius of 4 metres.

Step 1: The Pieces

You need:

5 yellow rods
6 blue rods
4 white rods
20 green rods

3 white connecters
12 green connecters
12 grey connecters
2 orange connecters
2 black connecters
1 sphere connecter

some blue rings
rubber band

Step 2: The Base

Just basically make whatever is on screen it is pretty self explanantory.

Step 3: The Middle

Now just connect the green connecters to the sphere like how it is done in the picture.

Step 4: The Middle

Make this star type thing and then slide it down the blue and yellow rods like in the picture.

Step 5: The Top

Now for the top and the hammer, the picture is pretty clear, just follow it

Step 6: The Grenade

Now all you have to do is connect the top to four of the blue rods and slide the hammer down the middle with the two guide rods slid down the side yellow rods aswell.

Step 7: The Finale

Now just add the rubber band from the top to the hammer. To load it up, hold the hammer down with one hand and with the other insert the blue rings onto the middle rod. To stop it from firing, place a orange connecter to jam it in place. To fire it turn the orange connecter till it almost pops off then just throw it on the ground and the force of the hit should set it off.

Good Luck

I love it! I designed the firing trigger (The orange connector) to go off remotely. A way to put a saftey on the grenade, attach a white rod to the firing trigger. It will prevent it from firing

Someone should make a collaboration to make a rocket launcer that does NOT use a motor to fire these. I am going to make a group right now to do that.

I made both this and hobo's and this one fires farther but its not like a frag mine shoots like ------ that in a line anyone have any idea how to make it shoot 360 degrees?

author

Make a bunch of them and hook them together pointing in different directions so they all shoot everywhere

How many blue rings does it shoot?

author
stickylaffytaffy321 made it! (author)2007-06-10

I find this way easier to block. The slightest touch will set it off. I got my brother with it. He opens the door and boom in the face. Use more rubber bands. Then it shoots farther

author

I think you could use the hammer in a knex shotgun, now that would be cool.

does it cause pain?!?!?!?! T.B.C

author
Mark Schmidt made it! (author)Mark Schmidt2007-03-09

kind of, it really depends on the rubber bands used and how fast the rings shoot out.

author
hobo lord made it! (author)2007-03-03

cool almost the same as mine, but I like how it shoots more and the new triggering system, and is that one of those kiddy pools that you are using for a back ground

Yes, but it also has a stronger, neater and more efficient design to it.
