It had been a long time for me trying to make a shooter, but today I got the Idea of making this Disk Launcher.
It works really well and looks awesome, you can make this by following very easy steps. I wish that you like it.
Since I am 14 I am not allowed to use the power tools that's why I couldn't make a wooden one, but still, this also works well.
Step 1: Material
All you gonna need is
- A piece of cardboard
- P.V.A Glue
- Glue Gun
- Coloured sheets
Step 2: Cardboard Measuring
Now using the ruler and marker draw 2 pieces of 8x6cm. Now cut them using a knife or a pair of scissors.
Step 3: Marking of Popsicles
Now using the marker mark 2 parallel lines with an eight cm gap between them.
Step 4: Cut the Popsicles
Now using the scissors cut on the marks. Do the same with the other popsicle
Step 5: Paste the Popsicles
Now paste the popsicles on the cardboard using the glue gun.
Do the same on the parallel side
Step 6: Cutting the Syringe
Now using the knife cut the syringe into a tube, this will act as a storage unit for the disks
Step 7: Marking
Now take the second cardboard and mark the circumference of the syringe and cut it. And using the Glue gun paste the tube over it
Take two popsicles and cut them of equal length to use it to pull. Now cover it with a sheet of paper
Step 9: Join Both the Cardboards
Now take both the cardboards and join them end - end using glue gun
Step 10: Making the Grooves
Now make 2 grooves parallel the each other on any one end of the cardboard block to put the rubberbands in
Step 11: Blocker for the Puller
Now take the piece which was made to pull and mark its length and cut the popsicles. paste them on any one end. And make a groove on the same end
Step 12: Joining the Rubber Bands
Now through the grooves put two rubber bands and make them intersect on the puller groove as shown in the images above
Step 13: Decoration
Now using the paper decorate the it and the launcher is ready
Step 14: Now Its Launch Time
Now put any small Disk or coin and pull the puller and shoot
