Check My Tornado 480 Command V2 too!
This is my latest creation and actaully a very simple one.
Basically, the claw grabs something that hits the blue rod and it just puts it's teeth into it... and hard!
-fun to use
-can trap anything (even my walking-robot)
-a chain so the target can't move
-it keeps it's mouth closed when hit
-might bite and close when you're setting it
It's a recommandable Bear Trap.
Update on the Tornado:
It is Posted!!!
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: The Ring
This part is for a sturdy bodyframe.
Step 2: The Pole Ring
This part is to lock it around something like a tree.
Step 3: The Chain
this part is to keep the Trap Ring and the Pole Ring together.
Step 4: The Emplacer
This part is to keep the trap opened until someone or something hits it.
Step 5: The Actual Trap
the Rings and the Chain are actually not required (but they make it look nicer), you only need the actual Trap and the Emplacer.
Step 6: Assembly
The pictures speak for themselves:
If you have any problems, post a comment on my orangeboard.
Step 7: The Tricky Bit
This part is kinda tricky and will require some stable fingers.
you need to disconnect the yellow rods so the trap is set.
here, 2 pics on how it should look.
pic 1 connected, pic 2 disconnected.
