Introduction: Fun Throwing Spike

About: I enjoy Hiking threw the vast wilderness, and using my two hands. I am currently a medical student. Recently I have been studying theory and religions. The last time I used instructables I was 14 or so! HA, ...

Hear I will show you how to make a cheap intractable throwing dart. Its range if you are holding on to the string about 10 ft. and if you let go of the string about 45, or so, depending on your swing strength.

Step 1: Supplies & Tools

This is a list of all the supplies and tools you will need to complete the project.

Supplies :

Heavy duty string, about 50 inches of so.

Lag bolt, be sure to git the heavyset available.

Tools:

Lighter, to burn / cut string

Grinder, to sharpen

Step 2: Sharpen

 Begin by grabbing you largest / heavyset lag bolt available, and turn on your grinder and sharpen the Nut side of the bolt, until you git a perfect point.

Step 3: Time to Tie

 Tying rope to the bolt makes it more powerful, "pin point" , and gives you the chance to with draw the throw it you didn't like it, or to ready another throw.

Grab a spoil of rope and git the length of rope at least twice your arm length.

DO NOT CUT THE ROPE YET.

Grab the end of the rope your first started out with and begin ting it to the bolt, about 3 raps is enough. and then BURN the other end of the rope. cutting rope will leave the ends split and can undo the entire rope. burning cuts and binds them together.

Step 4: How to Use

 Begin to use the dart by grabbing the Bolt, then in the other hand the end of the rope, begin sliding the bolt down to the ground until the tip of the bolt touches the ground. then begin spinning. 

*WARNING:

Begin spinning slowly, starting out fast can make the dart move in unpredictable ways, and could hit you. If you ever throw the dart, and it was behind you. LET GO or the dart could hit you. 

When the dart is spinning controllably in the air from your hand let go or the string with your spin hand. then your rope hand, or just the spin hand. and you will have a quick re throw for the dart.

    be very careful with this

    Note: Only burn it if you are using a synthetic rope, not cotton or the like. Burning a cotton rope will only set it on fire. Nice idea BTW. :)

     Careful you don't throw it to the extent of the string. You'll put somebody's eye out with that thing.
