    one layer that way ->
    etc.

    i made a coilgun with a bigger barrel and overall structure. i notice that when i charge for a minute nd a half, it does fine but very weak.when i go longer, it just sort of jiggles in the barrel. help? o i used two different gauges of wire connected in the middle of the coil (youll see) ill put up some pics...........

    The neeter u wind the coil the better, wind it in only one direction too. when u get to the end run it streight back and start on the next layer, that will give u the best magnetic feild

    Hello guys
    I am making a coilgun made of a disposable camera and some capacitors.
    I have made a drawing with google sketch-up. Could you please check if I have made all the connections right? ( I am not an expert ……… yet)

    but when making the coil. does the wire need to be insulated so that they don't touch each other. otherwise it will be just like a metal tube

    why didnt you just put a battery in the area where it is empty and if you have enough room put another extra batterey for if the other one runs out

    I really would like to see instructions on this one too, it looks like a nice simple design that would be a fun little project.
