This is basically a pneumatic chapstick gun made to look steampunk with the use of various household objects.
The Idea of the chapstick gun came from another instructables user named "Professor Hognutz". When I saw his intructable, I told myself: "You know what? This would be really cool if it was steampunkified!"
Theres a video in the last page (page 4) if you want to see it working.
Comments Apreciated! :D
