In this Instructable I will show you how to make a toothpick shooter...
yes, I did not invent this... but, I modified it so it is simpler for you out there to make it


Step 1: Things you need:

1) Razor knife
2) Tape (any kind)
3) Clothespin
cool! you got this from "mini weapons of mass destruction". i have that book, it's worth looking into for anyone who likes to make easy catapults and the like from household items.
Cool, Iv'e got to try this!
Please do! Let me know how it goes!
Great! I was surprised by the power of this thing. Favourited and 5*
Aaaw sh*tt, I lost mine.
Make another one ;)
<p>:D 3 Years later and I finally got around to it. Still awesome though!</p>
<p>Saw your reply, couldn't help myself.</p>
good cheater
i tried making mine and the clothes pins kept splitting for some reason so i used superglue to reinforce it <br>
Thanks a ton it is a genious idea<br>
You're welcome!
&nbsp;How do i do this ? i cant even get the spring open 1 mm !
use the force, or a screwdriver...
<em><strong>VERY good desing but here is a tip: make the firing hole bigger and it shootes better!</strong></em>
fun. if you use the flat toothpicks, you can shoot 2 at a time lol.
NICE DESIGN!! very easy to load and very easy to shoot! it also has lots of power!
should the toothpick be loose inside the barrel?
kinda... but just a bit
got to make one
great idea! this took me a little longer than 5mins, but it works great.
very cool litte unit! not sure if I should show my kids how I made it or not! making another one for a friend of mine for his birthday - he's gonna love it!
sweet, I need to make one of these. Favorited and 5*
MacSoap. To shoot it I'm guessing all you have to do is press down on the top of the spring until it comes out of the slot it's in. <br/><br/>=)<br/>
I made one kinda like this to shoot strike anywhere matches, way back in the day before the Al Gore invented the internet.... turn the match to the spring clip and you get a fire gun<sub>,Don't try this at a gas station!</sub><br/>
This is cool. The first time I shot mine I was very impressed by its power. I hit a wall and I found the toothpick five feet behind me. nice job.
Glad u liked it!!!
I am really sorry for not-answering but ive been ona trip... BUT NOW IM BACK!!!
