Introduction: Working on a New Knex Gun

Some footage of me creating a new gun just to show how I work.

Don't expect me to post the gun though, because I might never actually finish it.

Hmm, very similar to my method. I just put and see if it fits...xD
Get a gun dictionary like me.  Gives a lot of inspiration and a ton of weird guns (Walther WA2000,

haha look up the pepperbox pistol those guns a foobarred

Not at all how i build guns.....

TheChemiker (author)Seleziona2010-05-20

I never build like this either, but it is interesting to see how other people build.

I always thought about doing a log of me building, with me narrating it.

We all build in totally different ways. Oblivitus has a small work table, and I just sit on the floor or on my bed and just build away. I have all of my pieces in two boxes, and I just spend most of my time searching for the right piece.

I'm thinking about making an entirely new type of gun, with a documentary on the buildling, like this.

i jus build. no method or thinking. i do all the thinking after i build the gun to perfect it.

Fred the Penguin (author)2010-05-21

definitly differnt from ho wI do it. My method involves doodles done at school, a good idea and alot of mess =)

 HaHa... Same here, I get really bored in study hall.

I build off the top of my head.  =D

Oblivitus (author)TheChemiker2010-05-22

Isn't that uncomfortable? I'd be afraid of ripping my hair out. XD

TheChemiker (author)Oblivitus2010-05-23

Comon, Oblivitus!  Think!  You know what I am talking about!  lol

Oblivitus (author)TheChemiker2010-05-23

Of course, I was just making fun. :)

Same here ;)

I build guns from the mind and if there is something wrong then i will mod it 2 make it wright, this is wot did on my latest project.

barrax (author)2010-05-20

you work way too slowly...

doing a video log of a knex gun might be a cool idea, but if someone would, they'd have to talk about it, through it...

Oblivitus (author)barrax2010-05-20

Good idea, I might try that next, now that I know people are interested in this. Slow? New inventions take time. The connected pieces on the top left of the table are a repeating element to be placed at the front of the gun, it's a 4 barreled shotgun.

~Aeronous~ (author)Oblivitus2010-05-20

 Isn't that a desperado shotgun?

barrax (author)Oblivitus2010-05-20

you should have an idea of what you are going to do before you start building...

and cool for the 4 barreled shotty

asdfda3432 (author)2010-05-20

Kinda slow. Well, It's better than me XD I haven't been on for a looooooong time.

Senior Waffleman (author)2010-05-19

what idea is this, and have you seen my sniper rifle yet?

TheChemiker (author)2010-05-19

Hi!  You just posted this!  Nice.

Oblivitus (author)TheChemiker2010-05-19

Yeah. Did you find it interesting or helpful at all? Don't expect me to post the gun though, because I might never actually finish it.

TheChemiker (author)Oblivitus2010-05-19

Kind of slow paced, but interesting.  I have never stetched out my ideas, I just start building off the top of my head.  When I get my room cleaned up, I will start working on my sexbow/logic bow combo I have in my head.  It should be incredibly powerfull, if I can make it.

TheChemiker (author)2010-05-19

What were you working on?  Is it a new gun you are going to post?
