Introduction: Knex Disc Thrower
Hey guys, it's knextremist again with my second entry in the Toy Rods and Connectors Contest. It is none other than a Knex disc launcher! What makes mine so innovative and different, however, is that it is based off of a clay pigeon thrower. I have searched the interwebs and have not been able to find any Knex pigeon throwers. So, I think it's safe to say that this is a first. And with a range of about 15 feet with 4 bands, it has obvious potential. This instructable is not a step by step due to the lack of time I have to enter this in the contest. If I get enough of you who want to build this or it wins anything, I shall post instructions. :) So, if you want to build this or just like it, drop me a vote and be my friend forever! O.k. here we go, specifications.
Only three broken pieces which are not required.
All Knex except for the rubber bands
Range: About 15 feet
Not great range
Uses a few of rare orange pieces found on my gun: Concept V
Image notes will show the various parts of the weapon!
Hope you enjoy!!!
