NOTE the projectile is shown on the left of the first picture and it needs to have the rubber band tied on yhe end of it (shown in picture 2)

Step 3: Connecting/ Launching/firing

connect the launch pad rod to the base and make sure to connect the part with the 2 orange connectors to the base not the other way around.hook the rubber band over the orange thing and pull back then make sure the rod hooks a lil bit on the orange connector then hold like shown in the picture and let go. if it does'nt fire then grab a knex rod of any size and lightly tap it then it should fire



P.S. this is my first instructable, tell me how you like it/hate it!

At first I didn't like it but that was because I couldn't get it to fire correctly and having to hold it to load and whatnot was annoying. But hey, I stuck a little gray piece through one of the orange/brown connectors and there we go, pull and fire. :P It couldn't used some more images to see it better and maybe some instruction on how to fire it.

The launch rod could be stonger cos it tends to bend before you launch

dont get how to fire it

nice instructable btw, but i dont think that Splodies qualify as rockets, as rockets are self propelled and carry their fuel with them, i designed such a rocket out of knex and will be posting it soon

:-0 WOW, At first I thought that the base was
going to shift forward when i was about to launch. Its
pretty simple...but make sure you're not under a ceiling fan like I was.

PetervG (author)2006-11-08

So its not a rocket launcher . . Its a Knex Launcher

PetervG (author)2006-11-07

What does it fire? (I didn't read it) "knex rocket launcher" ? Rocket?

mickey shimitz (author)PetervG2006-11-07

if your not going to build it then skip to step 2 and look at the thing on the left in the first picture PS i just finished this like 30 seconds ago and where i live it's 7:37
