knex firing mechanism thingy

I didnt look around much so this may be old news... you can just delete this if it is the idea is that when you pull back and a little up the bolt pops out of the barrel and rests against the front of the chamber, until you push down on the hammer, which puts the bolt back in the barrel again :P if you make it with reds or grays they bend a bit much but it still works the problem is that theres no real way to make it bolt-action

need help with levers and pulley thingy

I need help. yet again... im making a piggybank that has wings on hinges(when pigs fly...) there is a lever that when a coin is inserted the lever is pushed down the lever is hinged on one end and the other end is the end that goes down. the end that goes down has a string. the two wings have a string on each running from the wing to a rod that rises from beside the coin insert on each side. i had one string run from wing A trough a eyelette on rod A through a eyelette on rod B then onto wing B. i then had the string from the lever go over the length of string between the two rods and then back to the lever. that only lifted the wings ~1 CM the wings need to be lifted ~6 CM but the downward pull is only ~1 CM and is not variable. i have several ideas floating around but i would appreciate your help.

Airsoft/Spudgun crossover: Anti-Personnel Explosive thingies

Its a PVC/ABS thing that works like a spud gun, but launches a powder cloud (and potentially BB's). It's remote-triggered, so it can be buried underground, and only the top has to be removed, so it can be permanent. It works in the same way as a spud gun. I'll try to get diagrams up tomorrow, and if I can build it, pictures and an instructable, of course.

My dremel tool is spraking inside and the regulator thingy doesnt work...? Answered

1. My dremel makes a weird noise when i turn it on, and when i look inside through the venting holes i see sparks coming from the motor/magnet. It wasnt like this before and it runs slower now than before. 2. The roller thingy to regulate the speed (1,2,3,4,5,6 or max) only works on "max", if i turn it down the thing just stops working, but when i turn it up to max again it starts (at max speed of course) this isnt a very important acctually since i use max all the time, but its kinda annoying cuz it some times shuts off. My dremel is a CoTech model and only about 2-3 weeks old btw.

How To Use the Alarm from an Alarm Clock in Something Else?

I wanted to make an alarm type thingy, ad I want to use the alarm from an alarm clock. I don't know how though, I tried connecting a cell to the wires that were already on the alarm, but it won't work. I think it's one of those piezo-electric crystal thingies.

My New Knex Gun- DG12 Marksman rifle

Hello Knexers! this is a new gun that is unpostable due to a bug that won't let me upload images on 'create'.This is a rachet system slingshot rifle. It is good enough to be a snipers rifle, but due to the mediocre accuracy produced, I decided to make it a Marksman rifle. It is accurate up to 30ft or so, but its maximum range is about 60-80ft. The mechanism is always reliable (Thanks to I_am_Canadian's striker pistol) and never breaks. The gun is only 3-layers thick due to my lack of pieces. There is a foldable rear sight positioned at the front of the stock.  Ammo is variable from a blue rod with a red connector, all the way up to a grey/black/clear size with a red connector. I would not recommend this as a primary, due to the time taken to reload in all slingshots. If so make this a sort of secondary. Mods: Last two pictures Credit: I_am_Canadian for his striker pistol Dedicated to Geodez and DJRadio, who make me laugh (geodez) and dedicate time to help me (DJ).

Can I zap the light in a flickering LED without killing the flicker thingy?

I want to make a single LED flicker.  As far as I know, the only way to do this is to buy a chip and all the equipment needed to program it.  I don't know how to do that, and it's quite expensive.  So... I bought one of those dollar store flickering LED candles and tried using the light from it as my flicker circuit. It's the LED itself that flickers, not a separate circuit. I sadly couldn't find any where the circuit was a separate chip.   I can't use this light as my light because they only come in yellow (I need white). So I painted the flickering LED black and attached it to my battery.  Now my actual project LED did flicker, but the other light was draining all my battery power so that my main light was a bit dim and died quickly.  So my brilliant idea for a $1 easy flicker method doesn't quite work. Unless somebody knows how to zap the light without killing the flicker thingy. Is this even possible? I've no idea how those flickering LEDs work. Thanks.

self propelled motor powered boat single person lay on thingy pontoon.

I know that sounds weird, but I don't really know what to call it.  I found piece of Styrofoam that looks like it was from an old buoy.  I cut it in half, made it into a toy boat, then realized the it could hold a person laying down on it.  it is about 3 to 4 feet long and 20 inches wide in the pontoon shape.  Now my questions are, first, how to I keep the Styrofoam from shaving off?  Its the compact type, so the outside is fine, but where I cut it in half it is rubbing off.  Second, should I make it a hand crank, or should I try to get a prop and chainsaw motor on it, or find a trolling motor?  We live within five minutes walking distance from lake Michigan,  so I could probably use it a lot (if it worked).  Thanks!!!

What mysterious force holds the plastic pizza signage to the top of this moving car? Answered

The attached photo was taken recently at an undisclosed location, somewhere in the Former United States (FUS). In it you can see a plastic sign-thingy on top of a moving car. My question is this: What mysterious forces keep the plastic sign-thingy from sliding off the car due to the effects of wind and inertial pseudoforces. What holds the sign to the top of the car? Is it powerful magnets? Double-sided sticky tape? Is it perhaps... love? Has anyone seen one of these artifacts up close, and/or knows for sure what the physical mechanism is?

Knex shotgun

Got a new idea for a gun, its the shotgun from the game halo, it will have a little trap door thingy, which will reveal a sort of hopper thingy, which i think can hold about 8 white rods, give or take a few, it will have a pump, that not only pushes the firing pin back, but also loads a bullet, with the pressure of the pump stopping the bullet from falling into the barrel, and when the pump is released the bullet will be loaded, and it will be a true trigger, not alot of new things, just a couple of things switched around, yes this will be my first gun, but i will have to learn to build a pump action gun before ANYTHING starts happening, thank you for reading this Yerjoking
