The Shrapnel Spreader K.T.B (Knex Time Bomb)

Picture of The Shrapnel Spreader K.T.B (Knex Time Bomb)
Check my Sipriani Rifle too!

This is the first ever knex time bomb on the site!
It has a range of 3.5 ft.
The timer is about 22 seconds with two 64# rubberbands tied together.

Pros:
-strong bottom
-block trigger system
-pretty good range
-can keep up to 23 white rods in the spreader
-uses a firing pin

Cons:
-spreader isn't strongly attached to the bottom

For short:
It's a recommandable time bomb.

If you have any questions or problems please contact me on my orangeboard.

Step 1: The Trigger Stopper

This part is for stopping the trigger from blowing the spreader of the top.

Step 2: The timer

you can make the wire as long as you want
one 64# rubberband is 6 to 8 seconds on the timer.

Step 3: Bottom (stand)

This part is the support for the spreader.

The engine is the blue one out the Starburst Spinner Set.

Step 4: The Spreader

this part is required since it holds the white rods that need to be shot.

Step 5: Trigger Track

This part is for letting the trigger go straight so it won't pull the trigger in a weird direction making the trigger shoot away.

Step 6: Putting together

Nee, da's om het elastiekje op de as te houde zodat hij er niet vanaf glijdt. :P
oh ja en dat probleem dat het niet goed aan het ondersteuningsplatform vasthangt heb ik een oplossing nl: 1 de 4 (2 aan elke kant) bovenste gele connectors vervangen met witte 2 oranje connectors aan de spreader op de blauwe staafjes juist naast degene die al vastzit aan het ondersteunigsplatform 3 zoeken welk staafje tussen de oranje en gele connectors past 4 opgelost!
euh kweenie hoor maar zit het elastiekje niet aan die grijze connector vast?
