This instructable will show you how to make a taser for about $5. I will show you, in as much detail as I can give, how to make one of these. THIS INSTRUCTABLE IS FOR PEOPLE WHO ARE COMPLETLY LOST WHEN IT COMES TO THESE THINGS! if you know what you're doing, you're wasting your time. You will need to know how to solder (even if you're not good at it).
Step 1: What you will need
Nothing special or expensive.
1)toggle on/off switch
2)normally open push button switch
3)any type or size of wire (thinner is recommended however)
4)cheap disposable camera
Step 2: Rip it open.......carefully
Use gloves if you have them. If not, be REALLY careful not to touch any metal parts. Pry the camera open. The film is the standard roll so if you plan to save it, open the camera in a dark place and rewind it. Next, remove the flash circuit. Remove the battery but make sure you remember which way it went. Installing the battery backwards after completing the circuit will cause the taser to burn out and smoke so this is really important. Then you will need to remove the flash capacitor. If you don't know what this is, don't panic. Picture #1 shows this piece. DO NOT TOUCH THE METAL LEADS ON THE BOTTOM OF THE FLASH CAPACITOR UNTIL IT HAS BEEN SHORTED! Doing so will cause you to get tasered. Picture#2 shows you how to short it. Simply place a metal piece with an insulated end (i.e. a screwdriver) between the two leads. The capacitor might spark pretty loud so be ready for that. After this it is safe to touch and the capacitor can be cut off with regular scissors. Picture#3 shows what this should look like and the cut-off capacitor is in the top left corner of the picture
