Blocks that interlock and can withstand a car running over it and K'nex have fragile sticks that can break in half. but I digress.

They are too different things entirely. The only thing they have in common is that they are both building tools. They each have strengths and weaknesses. In fact how about we make a knex+lego gun using the knex bricks for once so we can combine each of their strengths.

i agree with you on hating knex bricks, but not on knex as a whole being bad, on durability they aren't good, but they are much more versitile in their creative potential. you can create a gun out of knex much quicker, easier, less piece consuming and are easier to handle. lego as a franchise is positively one of the biggest building toy companies in the world, they also branch out with ideas that are novel, fun, and their products, such as bionicle, technic, etc. are playgrounds that embody what knex can't, like in bionicle, you can make characters of you're own that move, and can be reused to make other characters of you're making, basically the ultimate action figure. to sum it up, knex and lego are seperate each broaching areas that the other can't.

im just going to ignore that paragraph and say one thing: someone needs to make K'nex and Legos able to connect with each other!

i figured out another stupid way but is still efective you get a wooden dowel, tape string to one end, next wrap the string around the rear one time then stretch a ruber band the width of the dowel, then wrap the string around that one once and so on, now unravel the string and it should fire, you could probably fit 50 ruberbands like this

its not that hard you could try it with knex, you take a gray rod put a dark gray connecter on one end put a string through the hole in the connector and then knot the string, then place the rubber bands on in the fashion stated above

Do you mean the kind where you have a wooden block on the shape of a gun, with a notch on the tip and a clothespin mounted where the hammer would be? Or something a little more... brutal?

What do you even use to make a rubber band gun?

osi (author)bannana inventor2008-07-21

there are many components to a good ruber band gun first you must make a good triger system that is highley efficent then it must have a barel that is adjustable by changing a rod or two then it must be comfortable, also it has to be sturdy so it wont break under pressure like my spectre m4 which im working on making its instructable
