Introduction: Super Awesome K Nex Mini Bow!!

About: I enjoy tinkering with electronics, building useful things and recycling. I'm also an Eagle Scout and camp counselour who enjoys the outdoors

In this instructable, I'm going to show you how to make a knex mini bow. This is one of my first instructables, so please go easy on me!! Seriously,I mean it.:P

Step 1: Parts

Be sure to get all of the parts in the picture. Remember, not all of the parts have to be the same color, just the same size and shape of them.

Step 2: The Main Body

Build two of these.

Step 3: Connecting the Two

Follow the pictures on how to connect the two pieces.

Step 4: The Hard Part

Now, somehow stretch the two rubber bands across the wheels to act as a bowstring. Then wrap them around the two rods holding the snowflake piece up like in the picture.

Step 5: Holding the Bow and Firing

Hold the bow as shown in the picture, the arrow (any long rod) goes through the center of the snowflake piece, Pull it back however you like.

    just finished it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! (:

    I'm workingon a 4foot bow that with the right rubber bands will fire200 feet,if every thing goes right.

    I get the steps just this website makes things all fuzzy.

    It's good because it's small. But how do you do the 4th step?

    I REALY like your idea I think you should step it up a notch though.

    Not bad but don't post stuff with super awesome in the name.

    hey, it got your attention didn't it?

    It's one of the hard steps, and it's hard to explain

    Maybe thats why im asking ==
    Is it one long rubber band or is it two? because you said stretch two but i dont see how you can do that ><
    do you have more pictures on different angles?

    it's two rubber bands right next to each other, wrapped around the same way. sry, the rubber bands look wierd because I liked the look of them.

    nevermind the system didnt woork half the time and i already totaled it so sorry no pic but i did mod the bow into a crosssbow type thing with a pullpin firing mechanism if you want pic then iwill upload some

    hey this is awesome and also while ago i was modding it and sccidentally came up with a NEW trieeger system it is called the TT systm (Twister Trigger System ) you basically well kinda hard to explain want me to post smoe pics?
