Intro: Flocking Gun for Car Interiors From Fly Swat and Sieve

how to make a cheap flocking gun for car interior etc

Step 1: Undo Fly Swat

open up fly swat from screws on outside then cut wires connected to the top. connect up the 2 blue ones and leave red one on its own then discard top part of swat. wire colours may vary but they are all pretty much the same

Step 2: Tape the Sieve to the Remaining Part of the Fly Swat

tape/attach the sieve to the remaining part of fly swat. careful not to touch any of the circuit board to the sieve as you may short it when connected

Step 3: Connecting Wires

connect the blue (2 twisted together) wires to the sieve and leave the other wire loose then put the swat cover back on. tape or screw up to you. you might need to cut away the casing to allow for sieve with a craft knife

Step 4: Away You Go

add the flocking powder to the sieve then place glue onto surface you want flocked. make sure the red wire is touching the glue then push the button on fly swat handle. shake the swat/sieve and keep hold of button and flocking powder will charge and stick to the glue. make sure the red wire always stays in the wet glue you may want to add a crocodile clip to end of the red wire to keep it attached. also you can uprate the battery in the fly swat to get a more powerful charge.
