hammer survey

Hi! we are students in an pre-engineering program called Project Lead The Way (PLTW) at Stratford High School in Connecticut. We are currently working on a open ended design project. For our project we must identify a problem in the world and try to solve it. Our problem is that hammers cause over 36,000 injuries per year, and we would like to solve this as best as possible. Can you please fill out this survey? We'd greatly appreciate it. This is the link to the survey( we personally added a tinyurl to shorten the web address here) http://tinyurl.com/np7gzh2 If you have any questions we'd be glad to answer them!

Knex hammer action pistol

Here is my knex H.A.S.A, that stands for hammer action side arm. It can shoot 15-20ft with one rubberband. It just a single shot hammer action pistol. I do have a reason why I post this one. The mechanism can be made much smaller and more compact, being able to fit in a Colt realistic revolver shell. All you'd need to build is the revolver out of grey spacers and scotch tape. It could be done, I may or may not try and build one. Whatcha guys think?

bballkidx's Hammered Pistol - Review

I have not written an review in quite some time, so I though it would be good to take the time to do so again. I have recently built the gun titled: "Knex Pistol, with a NEW! firing mechanism, a Hammer," and I thought it would be good to settle the scores on this particular 'ible now, even though it was posted on Jan 12, 2008, and the last comment was posted on Aug 27, 2012. This gun is not as amazing as it has been made out to be. Granted, the hammer mech is kinda cool, and the way it was pulled off was not bad at all, but the way it was made on the whole needs to be spoken of. Pros: The hammer mechanism is great. It works efficiently and well, and it gives an "old-time-feel" to this gun. The trigger also works effectually, and keeps the hammer from moving every time. The loading process works well too. You pull the hammer back all the way, you push a round into the barrel, you pull the trigger, and then you repeat. Part of the reason, I think, that this gun works so well is because it is very simple, which is more than can be said for most guns (many of my guns included). Cons: The body. It is very hard to hold and looks like he (the creator) just slapped some parts on to the mechanism. This really does take away a lot of the ability of this gun, because you cannot hold it without being uncomfortable. You have to hold your hand in such a weird position, and the position of the handle is so low, that you can hardly reach the trigger. Lastly, the firing mech is very inconsistant. Some times if fires, sometimes it does not. Overall: I would suggest you build this gun...only if you want to get a idea of how a hammer gun should work. But don't come expecting a epic hammer gun that gets (as he claims) 30 ft. I fired this gun at least 20 times, and I doubt that it would get 10 ft. Now, I don't want to offend the author at all, and he has a great starting point, but he should have put more work into the gun overall. -The Red Book of Westmarch

What is this hammer axe wedge tool? Answered

It's real old, as you can see the head of it is mushroomed from use. On the bottom it says "Champion tool co. Meadville, Pa" From googling I believe Champion tool company turned into Channellock. I thought it may have something to do with farrying, which is horshoeing, but it looks like its been used pretty hard as a wedge. It has a weird skinny handle. It's definitely a cast piece. I couldnt seem to find any other examples of this particular Champion tool co. 'wedge hammer'. Not on ebay nor google. Just wondering if someone would have any more info about it or possibly know the value of it.

I Need Your Help Finding a Tool

Alright folks, I need your help.I am looking for a tool that punches holes in Altoids tins. With my Altoids Flashlight kits, teachers at schools can't really use drills in the classroom, so I need a punch that will be able to make holes with the hit of a hammer or something along those lines. It has to be something small; not like a drill press or anything. It has to be a small punch or something that I can ship with the kits so that a teacher can use it to make holes.The holes need to be big enough to fit mini PB switches and LEDs. I need maybe a website that can supply different sizes of punches; that way I can order just one and order it in bulk.I usually make these holes with my Dremel, and not everyone owns a Dremel, so I need something that I can include in my bulk orders that can punch holes in various pieces of metal.I am not sure if such a punch exists. It may take one or two punches to get a hole punched; but I am not sure of where to get such a tool.BONUS!!!: Anyone who finds the perfect tool that I need, will receive a free kit as a thank you. After a few days I will let the user know if he/she will receive the kit. Anyone have any ideas? Much appreciated!Thanks!(I sort of had to rush with the explanation of what I need; I have to get to work. But if you have any questions about it just ask me)

Using a small solenoid to trigger a co2 hammer valve

Hello, I have a question that is integral to the design of a project i'm making. I am trying to make an airsoft gun. For a power source, I am using a 12 gram co2 powerlet. My main problem is the trigger mechanism. Since I want the design to be semiautomatic with no blowback, I decided on an electric trigger to avoid the long trigger pull associated with mechanical triggers. My valve is taken from an airsoft pistol magazine and is pretty small. It is operated by having the rear "button" of the valve hit with a simple hammer, which moves the valve pin and releases gas into the barrel. I want to use a small solenoid in place of the mechanical hammer. When activated, the solenoid's push end would snap forward and hit the valves "button." I was wondering if this is possible on any kind of smaller power supply? It doesn't seem like the valve button needs much more than a tap to dump a good amount of gas. All the projects i have seen like this are fairly large scale, for larger airguns, and they had to use large unreliable power supplies. I would like to keep this whole thing as lightweight as possible.  I was thinking that i could use a simple switch or circuit that would just dump some voltage into the solenoid for just a fraction of a second, to fire one shot for each trigger pull. Would this solenoid work? http://www.adafruit.com/products/413 Also, the valve I am using is tiny, about an inch long. The "button" that needs to be tapped to release gas is about 6 mm in diameter.  Is there any way to calculate the exact amount of force needed to trigger the valve?  Does anyone have any advice for me?

true semi auto gun crossover

I have seen and built both ednator55's true semi auto gun and bballkidx's hammer operated pistol. The pistol swings a hammer to hit a rod and the semi a auto rotates a connecter to move a ramrod. This is more of an idea than a question but could somebody try to make a double action type gun. It is semi auto because it rotates a connecter but at the same time hits the bullet with a hammer. This would be most similar to some revolvers. This is just throwing an idea out there but I would be very grateful if somebody built this. Automatic 5 stars in my book. The semi auto gun is weak but semi auto. The hammer gun is strong and single shot. The crossover gun doesn't have to include a mag but it would be nice. Pmgroundhog

New drums: Kick pedal question. Answered

Greetings! Background: My xmas 'from me to me' present was a Roland TD-9K electronic drum set.  I have a concern with the drum kick.  I think I have it set up properly and it's either a setup problem or a user/technique issue.  The instruction manual says you can adjust (insert list of a bajillion variables) and 'set it up how you like' basically, without explaining how each variable effects the end result. My problem:  The kick pedal is set up as per the instructions and occasionally (every few beats) double-taps.  The hits are extremely close together, and are hardly audible if you're not listening for them, but they do exist in the midi data. (i.e. 1/64th beat later) The hammer is physically bouncing and hitting twice, it's not just spurious noise or an oversensitive pickup.  The brain lcd has a What I can adjust: Technique:  If I move my foot a bit it changes the harmonic frequency of the hammer, and it can solve the problem, but sometimes my foot ends up back where the problem exists The pedal assembly: -Spring return tension -- more tension = ability to hit faster but more effort required, problem exists everywhere from full soft to full firm. -Hammer location - it's centered on the sensor per instructions, and strikes flat and square. I could move the pedal off to one side slightly, or change the effective length of the hammer so it hits higher or lower (would change the periodicity of the system). -Angle of the sensor - per instructions is set straight vertical. -Electronic filtering - I can tell the brain to ignore hits for a period after a given hit to eliminate the spurious hits, but this wrecks my ability to intentionally use techniques where fast double-hits are wanted -'Home' angle of the hammer -- the angular moment with which the hammer moves with each kick.  Setting this too far away tends to make it hit the top of my foot (quite painful), and too short means its hard to make it work. Other Thoughts: I play barefoot, should I have a set of drum shoes?  Would that make a difference? I want to use these also to play rock band thru the midi adapter (people report its fun) -- but the double-hits would seriously impair scoring ability, and I need a way to fix them!

I need to make an air valve, but backwards!?!??! I really need help.?

All air valves I see move into the high pressure resevoir to release the air and then a spring pushes it back shut. Is it possible to have the valve set up opposite of that? In this valve the valve would open away from the high pressure resevoir and the air would escape the same way the valve is going. Traditionally, the valve moves into the high pressure and the air moves out the opposite way. Any information would be excessively helpful and I appreciate it in advance!

Then a hole the size of the CO2 canister in the middle. I haven't worked out the timing mechanism yet, or even started to, but the firing mechanism would be a spring attached to a hammer with a spike on the end of it, pull the pin, hammer hits the co2 canister, boom.

another full auto machine gun mechanism

Right this is just the mech of the machine gun you will have to make the mag/clip/barrel/everything.You may have seen this already on the comment on https://www.instructables.com/id/8-SHOT-KNEX-HAND-GUN-REVOLVER/?&sort;=NEWEST&limit;=50&offset;=50The comment with it was posted May 7, 2008. 12:25 PM.Basicaly the hammer is attached to a small cog, a motor or handle is attached to a cog with only 4 teeth(on each half) the 4 teeth will crank the hammer back then when it runs out of teeth it will snap back, it actually works(I would have posted but my sister destroyed it D= ) te only problem I had was the mag, I attempted to build a box mag, oh and the fact you need a metal rod for the handle/motor and for the hammer with gear on(I lost 3 red rods because it just twisted the hell out of them, it was impossible to use them again)So you can only make it with some sort of renforced rod, but overall it actually works.this is just a small step by step type thingStep 1sand down 3/4 of a small cog.Step 2to speed up rate of fire add speed up gears (optional)Step 3make hammer, lock canibalised cog onto a rod with hammerStep 4connect it to speed up gear/sStep 5add elastic band to hammerStep 6add mag, clip or belt. note: if you make belt the add timmed gears to the speed up gear.

What happens when you hit a bicycle helmet with a sledgehammer - video and images

While cleaning up in preparation for another project, I found two old bike helmets. Both had small cracks (less then 1 inch long) in their Styrofoam, and so I had retired them as unsafe for biking (considering how much I've invested in my head), but hadn't managed to discard them yet. I cut out the webbing and plastic snaps, and decided to see what would happen if I hit them with a 12 pound sledgehammer. First, I hit the Scott square on the front-top: I mostly let the sledgehammer fall, and didn't really put much swing into. Seeing that it couldn't stand up to face of the hammer, I hit it with the side of the hammer, again mostly letting the hammer fall rather than really swinging it: Next, I hit the Bell Aquila with the side of the hammer: The Bell really did a remarkable job standing up to the hammer. The Styrofoam was completely cracked apart the first strike, but the shell managed to hold the pieces together through several beatings. The Scott was a much older helmet, and its shell had already, for the most, part broken apart from normal wear and UV damage (it started out white, not yellow).Obvious conclusions: If I'm going to get hit in the head with a sledgehammer, I'll choose a bike helmet even with cracked foam over nothing at all.
