Introduction: Metal Wasps

Picture of Metal Wasps

this is a new version of the paper wasp and can really hurt and leave blisters.there are only a few things needed and i am not reasponcible for any of your actions. try not to kill anyone

Step 1: Supplies

Picture of Supplies

you will need pliers that can cut wire, the wire (welding lead, get at hardware store), and a rubber band to launch it

Step 2: Cutting Wire

Picture of Cutting Wire

you will need to cut about an inch of wire

Step 3: Bending

Picture of Bending

this is the easy step, just put the wire in the pliers and it will bend in the middle. try to find pliers big enough

Step 4: Done

Picture of Done

well, there you have it. just put around a rubber band and launch. p.s.- these things can really hurt and go far. i've shot them over 100 feet easy. as long as you kinda snap your hand foreward when you let the wasp go, it can really help.

Bent shingle nails work well for hunting squirels...

I remember testing one of these out, 40 years ago. I needed a moving target, so I chose the paperboy, as he walked down the driveway away from our house. Bad choice! Luckily he wasn't injured too severely, but he did have a nasty welt on the back of his head. I still feel bad to this day.

These babies could seriously injure someone, like taking out an eye, and you will have to live with that feeling forever, not to mention the guy you injure - think first before you shoot at another person!

J@50n (author)chamster2011-01-21

Fold up a stickey not a bunch of times, staple a staple into the center of it, bend the prongs of the staple straight, fold and kill someones arm, done :D

Rainh2o (author)2010-04-25

as I got older I just graduated to the REAL paper wasps...grab them by both wings, poke at them with a pencil and then stick them to the back of someones neck...guarantee those will hurt

GorillazMiko (author)2008-02-23

Holy crupizkul.
Very crazy, you can get in trouble with even paper ones, but wow, this, you could DIE.


Do at your own risk.

A LOT of trouble at work, being sarcastic

"they are new to this world and very awsome." Um No. No they aren't .There is nothing awEsome about this unless you consider legal ramifications like arrest and being sued for personal injury awesome. Basic common sense is your friend. Please use some.

in other words AWESOME

I just use paper clips

jboppx22 (author)1spartan952009-05-16

yea i use them too but these are super painful. if you do ever find some of this welding wir and make one, don't get arrested

Speedmite (author)2009-04-30

I call them hornets. I made a special folding style that makes them really hurt. This is just on the brink of insanity. You could get arrested with these.

left most one and right most one =☠

PKTraceur (author)2008-11-12

I call these tweeties!

p2y2r7o (author)2008-07-02

Ha, my roommates and I got into a wasp fight one night. We were using anything we could find! Everybody came out of it fine...for the most part, haha.

jboppx22 (author)2008-06-18

check out my other stuff too

sloppy95 (author)2008-03-07

I made ones out of copper...

chuckr44 (author)2008-02-25

Ow! I poked my eye out! Now I have to wear a patch, but at least I can talk like a pirate.

Mr. Rig It (author)2008-02-24

Interesting idea, but you are responsible if somebody gets hurt with these because you are putting the idea in their head to begin with.

Lftndbt (author)2008-02-24

Hmmm... I think you messed up the titles here.... Paper ones can leave blisters, these will easily break the skin and will very possibly penetrate it... They won't always hit on the curved bit...

I have heard of over rating and boasting about results...
You have under rated the damage which may be caused, effectivley endangering those lacking common sense...

Just bare in mind, common sense isn't all that common these days.

Just bare in mind, common sense isn't all that common these days.
This is the most approiate statement that I have seen in response to something like this, Danger because it may be used by children for fun Given that in some cases it could be used for defence
of a person. Flying objects of any kind are dangerous esp.for some one that refuses to use common sense

Brennn10 (author)2008-02-23

Paper wasps hurt, these would seriously injure. Watch out for getting hit in the eye with these.

reedz (author)2008-02-23

Wow...we get suspended for having paper ones at school...I could imagine you would get expelled for one or two of these

thearchitect (author)reedz2008-02-23

he is not reasponcible ... right, he probably got expelled long ago.

and... this is not new at all, we used to make these 20 years ago. :-) but no, we used them outdoors, not at school.

reedz (author)thearchitect2008-02-23

Wow...harsh I didn't think it was new, but it is a neat instructable to bring attention to your account...

thearchitect (author)reedz2008-02-23

nope... I was just having fun. :-)

Ouch! Those hurt!
