Is there any way to mod an Air Blasters Tommy 20 to keep it from jamming? Answered

Okay, I recently bought a Tommy 20 (what was I thinking?) to decorate/mod and make a "needle rifle" out of it with green LED darts (haven't made any designs for those yet) and so I took it home and tested it out. The results almost made me cry. But I figured that I could find a way to fix my problems. I opened it up (my dad doesn't know, shhhh!!!! It's my gun anyway), and I wrapped rubber bands around the drive wheels. It helped a little, but I'm still having problems. The darts aren't being pushed out of the holder far enough, and the ones that don't catch end up getting stuck and causing a huge jam up. Is there anything I can do to the mechanism that pushes these wretched darts forward push farther? Is there a cut I can make in the plastic that lets the darts not jam up? Should I keep the rubber bands on, or even-glue them on? What should I do (I just want it to shoot and not jam-I could care less about accuracy).

Nerf- Clip vs Magazine

Why does Hasbro not understand the difference between a clip and a magazine? They are leading people astray by calling their magazines "clips" when obviously they aren't.

Does this merit a new Instructable?

I haven't seen a guide on how to roll a paper cone anywhere on Instructables. I only recently figured out how to myself, so I figure that there must be some people out there in the same boat. I've taken all the pictures already, but I figured that I'd ask here first.UPDATE:There is this Instructable, but I think that there are several differences. (Side note: How do I make a list?)1. I analyze several different kinds of paper, and determine the best paper for a variety of desired effects.2. I describe how to load "warheads" into a dart, (Q-tips, toothpicks, etc.)3. I compare different ways of "setting" the dart. (Glue, tape, spit, etc.)4. I explain how to roll darts of different dimensions.5. I provide solutions to a few common problems.6. I describe the proper technique of "blowing" into a blowgun.7. I offer a few alternate uses, including something inspired by this Instructable. (I think we all know where I'm going with that one.) :P

Could I have some help coming up with a circuit that turns it self off after three momentary button presses?

Hi, I was wondering if I could have some help coming up with a circuit,  Basically me and my friend are modding nerf guns and I thought it would be cool If I could find a way to make the rapid strike fire three darts then stop (or three round bursts XD) Any how the part of the dart gun this in-tales seems to be the little arm that pushes darts into two rotating discs (this is one that uses fly wheels as opposed to a plunger) it works on a motor and gear that pushes it in and out, pushing the trigger activates this.  (I thought it would be a solenoid and that the trigger would put out electricity in bursts, or are those called pulses? any way that's where all this using a momentary switch idea comes from) So if anyone thinks that they can make a circuit using only the power from the trigger and lots of good timing a lesson would be much appreciated :D My Idea seems unnecessarily complicated but it's all I could come up with :D ,Any way the idea for the momentary switch circuit would be put some form of proximity sensor switch near the arm (the one that pushes the dart into the fly wheels). Something like a magnet switch or IR thingy ( I forgot what there called I think magnetic reed switch and Infa red proximity sensor or detector?) the idea after that was that each time the arm passed the sensor it would activate the sensor,  using that and the trigger(if they were both needed to initiate the circuit then releasing the trigger would reset the circuit) the first and second shots would push the dart into the fly wheels and the third would also push a dart into the fly wheel and turn off the circuit(or turn on the circuit activating a spdt relay and switching the link to the motor off) So far I've come up with some ideas using relays but just pressing the button once activated the whole circuit, I've also though of using a capacitor but I don't really know how to use them, if they work by holding X charge that can be filled by pressing a momentary button, that is hooked up to Y amount of power (possibly through a resistor), Z amount of times fills the capacitor stopping the circuit that would work,  though I would have to find a way to discharge it... Thanks for any help if I get any XD , and if posting my current not working circuit designs would help I'll do that, just have to figure out how to draw a circuit...

great idea but can't seem to post

No idea how to post this......do you have a Klein 9 way (or more) screwdriver but have lost the tips?......standard 1/4" tips are too short to replace the double ended ones, and even then they do not have the retaining pins that hold them in the tool.....     simple but brilliant solution......      acquire a small magnet close (but smaller than) the diameter of one of the too short tips......attach the magnet to the end of the tip and insert it into the tools sleeve.....remove the tip and the magnet is now permanently inside the sleeve....       now you can use almost any 1/4" tip from your other tool kits (sweet, if you use an odd tip on a regular basis).....and a bonus, the new tip is now slightly magnetic.......         not sure where you would acquire the magnets, I scavenged them from a dollar store "magnetic dart board" darts....

Which NERF Gun is Better? Triple Shot or the Quick 16? Answered

I don't know what to get? I want to get the Triple Shot becuase it shoots three darts at once. Cool, huh? It has a range of 30 ft. after air ristrictors being removed. Not much, but I usually have a war in my house so it's a reasonable range. It's pump action and it's 21.99 at Toys "R" Us. The Quick 16 is cool becuase it has a slam fire mode that means it's fully automatic, semi automatic, and pump action. It has a built in stock and you insert the darts in without taking the clip out. That's what got me excited about this blaster. I don't know exactly which is better. If you have one of those blasters or have used one. Then can you describe the advatages and disadvantages? Thanks!

Is there an easy design to eliminate air leak in the breech system of a Nerf Longstrike? Answered

I have a Nerf Longstrike, which i have modded for better performance. I removed the air regulator in the barrel, plugged some holes in the piston, and put padding in to protect the pieces from the increased power of the piston. As i was trying different barrel mods, i noticed something. The breech has a long tube that serves the functions of shutting the breech, accepting the dart from the clip, and delivering the air from the piston. When the breech is closed, this tube sticks into the back of the actual barrel. I noticed that where this tube fits into the back of the barrel, there is a 1mm crack all the way around, letting all the air out. the barrel isn't even a sealed system! I have tried several methods to seal this, but all have failed, ruined the performance, or prevented firing. Does anyone have any suggestions about this? If i can seal this well, all the air will be used to pressurize the barrel, without rushing out of the breech tube after the dart has left.

My Dream Cheeky USB missile launcher stops moving up and down and won't fire the top and right ports! Help please?

I tried going into its gearbox to loosen up whatever may be blocking it, and it did help a little, but it will still sometimes just stop.  Also - and this is the more important situation - when I hit the fire button on my computer for it, it will start compressing air to shoot the missile, but when it shoots from the four o' clock position (the dart on the right), it will only puff it a couple of feet, and when it tries to launch the missile from the twelve o' clock position (the dart on the top), it won't shoot at all.  I really need to know pretty quickly, everyone, so please help me out on this as much as you can!   Thanks,    Win Guy

Thiefbot

I really enjoyed playing Descent and Descent II, but I hated that $*!%#@ thiefbot in Descent II. I'm thinking that a thief bot running around the house would be pretty fun. It would like dark spaces, but come out into the open occasionally, or when it's quite dark to steal things. It would use a simple mechanical capture and release with a "loaded" sensor. After stealing something it would move around the darker spaces of a room until it sees its' lair and "hoard" items in it. A while later, it would go out again. I expect I would want this guy to dart around pretty fast, so I'd probably increase the drive speed, so as to make it more of a tripping hazard. So the rules would be something like: 1) Move slowly and randomly in shadowed or relatively darker areas. 1B) Randomly dart out into lit areas for a short while. 2) Move very quickly in bright or lit areas until a small object is loaded or darkness is reached again. 3) Only steal one item at a time, so be aware of Load/NoLoad condition. 4) When loaded, begin lair sensing and follow dark areas slowly until the lair is sensed. 5) When the infrared lair marker is sensed, navigate towards the lair and engage the mechanical release until a NoLoad condition it achieved. 6) Charge and wait awhile. 7) Begin navigating slowly and randomly in darker areas. This would sure make my nightly pickup easier. And more fun.

Spring-loaded cannon

My friend and I are considering building a spring loaded cannon. The idea right now is to have a pvc pipe for the cannon chamber, and pvc pipes flanking it to hold springs in parallel. A cross-bar will go through all 3 pipes through slits cut long ways in the pipe. The springs will be attached to some point forward in the flanking pipes and to the cross bar, which will be used to pull the springs back and, once released, will launch the dart/ball in the center tube. My research so far - the spring rates of springs loaded in parallel are additive. With 5x 10-in*lb springs, we can produce 667 newtons of force when pulled back 3 inches (springs in question are 5.5 in long) . That will produce an acceleration of 303 m*s^2 on a 1 lb (2.2 kg) albeit for only a fraction of a second. http://www.amazon.com/Extension-Spring-5-625-Long-080-count/dp/B001292S08/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&s=industrial&qid=1257718057&sr=1-1 These are the springs we're looking at. We'll need to use an even number of springs, so either 4 or 6 (or 8 or 10). So, what do you guys think? Practical? Will we be able to get any distance? Any suggestions? A ROUGH picture is shown below. === are spring tubes, | are handles, and left arrows indicate direction in which springs will be stretched, and the right arrow is a dart flying out of the center launch tube. ===== XXXXXXXXX     ------> =====

It looks allot like the Nite Finder EX-3 but is about half the weight. Its actually not a Nerf gun, because the black circle thing says Fei Xiang.

Hunting with Nerf Guns

The other night I was in full camo out in my street. I had stale bread torn up on the road as bait. Laying in the bushes, I waited for a target. For minutes I lay there, motionless, waiting for the perfect prey. Finally, a curious crow flew down, and started to peck at the bread. Using my steampunk-esque NiteFinder, capable of shots up to 50ft, I took aim. In a split second, just as the crow saw me, I pulled the trigger. My aim was true, and if I was using a real weapon, I would have killed it. A clean headshot, a bragging right, and awesomness was gained that moment. He flew away in relatively good condition, but I still had the satisfaction of that headshot. Now, tell me if you have hunted anything with a Nerf gun, and post an Instructable on how to make hunting darts.

11. Champagne chilled with liquid nitrogen.10. Party games include D & D and Will It Blend?9. Countdown clock had 12 significant digits after the decimal.8. The ice bucket was in the shape of Bender's head.7. Started 24 hours early to allow time for hacking giant TVs in Times Square.6. Nonstop argument over whether leap second was really needed.5. Instead of champagne, toast was done with apple cider in Futurama wine glasses.4. Instead of party hats, everyone had a blinking RFID tag.3. Mac people and PC people had separate rooms at party.2. MC Frontalot and Jonathan Coulton rang in the New Year with a live performance of "IC's of Yore."1. Everyone was too busy watching the Battlestar Galactica marathon and missed the ball drop.Adapted from: BBspotPictured is the dart game that might have been there....

Seeking PROP GUN info: from a gunsmith, metalsmith and/or fellow prop builder

Hi all, I've been asked to design a "Hellboyish BIG handgun" to shoot "holy water dart bullets at demons" for a show that is in pre-production. I've decided that rather than the usual "glue a bunch of stuff onto an existing toy gun and spray paint it" prop build I would like to actually make a functional metal prop gun (functional in that all the parts should work like a real gun but of course not actually shoot real bullets). Soooo.... my plan is to design the look of it and then work with a gunsmith to design the functionality; get the parts milled and then assemble it. Simple, right? Anyway, I'm not sure where to start so I'm calling out to the Instructables community. Has anyone built their own guns from scratch? Does anyone have advice? Right now I'm looking into companies that customize existing guns but what I really need is to start from scratch. All advice appreciated! DAZU

'Bad things little boys make at home' or 'it was all fun and games until Rex lost his eye!'

Hello all, I just started working on a new card game, the idea was to have cards of common household items that any young boy/girl would use to build something they shouldn't. On each card I'd like to have two or three things you can build with the item... ie. 'Puppy Poo'+ 'A Stick'= Poo on a Stick!; 'Puppy Poo'+ 'Paperbag'+ 'Lighter'= Flaming Bag of Poo. Yes juvenile I know but as a kid these are the things many of us remember... at least if you were one of the kids in art class making smoke bombs with the paints, and blow dart guns with you pens... not that I was...... Anyway, I would just like to know if there is anything you (or 'someone you knew of') build as a kid or last week when you had a bit of 'Gas'+ 'Water Gun'+ 'Lighter'= Flame Thrower; 'Small PVC pipes'+ 'Marshmallows'= Marshmallows Shooter; 'Soda Bottle'+ 'Mentos'= Sticky mess for Mom... you get the idea. Any Ideas you have would be a great help! Thanks, Max

Knex holster for Nerf Maverick

We all know how incredibly cool the Nerf Maverick rev-6 is, and if not than research it a little bit online and you'll see. The dart blaster's got its own cult following, so why not an awesome Knex holster to match!?It's comfortable, easy to assemble, and fits perfectly. It can probably be used with other toy guns as well but i designed this one with the Maverick particularly in mind.My holster is different colors than the usual because I used pieces from a moon lander or a robot or something.It attaches to pants by belt loop and by putting the rod in your front pocket, of course you can customize these two parts to fit your own pants better. I use a red rod so the holster angles forward a little but a gray rod would probably level it straight.Grey rods = 10 (one gray = two yellow rods and a connector!)Red rods = 3Blue rods = 7little Green rods = 4Yellow connectors = 10Green connector = 1Red connectors = 8Orange connectors = 12light Gray dual connectors = 8dark Gray uni connectors = 3little Blue rings = 4
