it is called a crankshaft, not a drive shaft.

Never thought of using a drill to power stuff before... could work for weaponry. Great build, I reckon you might just win this thing. You will probably get the top score in this round too...
one person made a fully auto airsoft bb shooter that worked off a crank a drill would make that gun go crazy
it would work very well for weaponry in fact. its exactly what you need for a powerful, fully automatic gun with a high rate of fire. i'd actually love to see one properly built ;)
I might give it a go, I'm bored at the moment.
so... how did it go?
I'm still working on converting my PDW/CQB weapon into an assault rifle. Here's the base design:

I see Knexsayer handle.
I know, but it's so COMFY!
Indeed, it is comfy. Have you built the Knexsayer?
Yep, don't have it anymore though, destroyed it for a shell-ejecting sniper. Still in progress.
Nice. Is it your own design, or is it the one Bakenbitz has on KI?
My own take on the theme. No copying.
Ah, I see. Tell me how it goes, it seems really interesting :P
My idea was for a bolt which pulled back the pin and the chamber cover, releasing the previous shell and allowing a new one to load, then pushing the bolt forward would re-cover the ejection port. It's very buggy, I will have to work hard on this one :/
That's a pretty cool idea. The way the system goes, it will be single shot, yes?

Yeah I've thought about using a drill for weaponry but it would be impractical because of how big a normal drill is and you would need to have it be a cordless drill to move around, making recharging batteries necessary too. I hope I win it, but like I said I have some tough competition.

Thanks, good luck to you too. I might be posting, I'll have to see if I have enough pieces left after I'm done making the master chief replica suit. (go ahead, laugh lol)

You're welcome! Who builds cool things, gets good compliments! :D

Wow that is amazing good luck I hope the best for you to win. P.S. have you had pieces melt i built a similar engine and due to friction my engine started to melt that was probably because i used a super motor and was at 4200 RPM :)
s0lekill3r (author)  killjoy5 years ago
I never ran it for long periods of time so I never had problems with pieces melting.
