Intro: Mechanical Pencil Staple Gun

A slightly modified pencil that shoots staples like ten feet. Note do not try to build this at school!

Step 1: What You Need

Lighter
Pencil
Razor Blade
Paper Clip
Stiring Straw
Tape
Pliers

Step 2: Stripping

Using pliers pull off the clip and take off the tip.

Step 3: Trigger Tube

Cut the stirring straw to the same length as the paper clip.

Step 4: Attaching Trigger

Heat up the paper clip and melt a hole through the eraser and take it out.
Put it through the straw and insert the paper clip through the hole and out
the other side about a centimeter and bend it over then bend the bottom part
down and tape the straw to the pencil.

Step 5: Taping Tip

Tape the lead advancing cylinder to the body of the pencil so when you push on the eraser two prongs come out.

    step 3 you insert the paperclip through the stiring straw as a guide for the trigger I hope this helps I'm sorry I can't figure out how to get pictures on it though.

    step 2 the clip is the thing on the top side you use it to keep it in your shirt pocket. And the tip is the part that covers the lead advancer.
