The Shrapnel Spreader K.T.B (Knex Time Bomb)




About: Favourite games are LittleBigPlanet2 and Gran Turismo 5. Favourite music genre is drum and bass, but my current favourite song is Gorillaz - Clint Eastwood. I mainly build replicas of godly cars on LBP2. Su...

Check my Sipriani Rifle too!

This is the first ever knex time bomb on the site!
It has a range of 3.5 ft.
The timer is about 22 seconds with two 64# rubberbands tied together.

-strong bottom
-block trigger system
-pretty good range
-can keep up to 23 white rods in the spreader
-uses a firing pin

-spreader isn't strongly attached to the bottom

For short:
It's a recommandable time bomb.

If you have any questions or problems please contact me on my orangeboard.

Step 1: The Trigger Stopper

This part is for stopping the trigger from blowing the spreader of the top.

Step 2: The Timer

you can make the wire as long as you want
one 64# rubberband is 6 to 8 seconds on the timer.

Step 3: Bottom (stand)

This part is the support for the spreader.

The engine is the blue one out the Starburst Spinner Set.

Step 4: The Spreader

this part is required since it holds the white rods that need to be shot.

Step 5: Trigger Track

This part is for letting the trigger go straight so it won't pull the trigger in a weird direction making the trigger shoot away.

Step 6: Putting Together

    I don't get the sentence... You said and translated: Thank you, Are you the Dutch or do you only (Don't even know if "speek" is correct nor, existant) the language But i think you mean this: Thank you, are you dutch, or do you just speak the language? Answer from me: Yes i'm Dutch but, i can speak English, a little bit German and, even a bit French. But i come from Holland :P

    oh ja en dat probleem dat het niet goed aan het ondersteuningsplatform vasthangt heb ik een oplossing nl: 1 de 4 (2 aan elke kant) bovenste gele connectors vervangen met witte 2 oranje connectors aan de spreader op de blauwe staafjes juist naast degene die al vastzit aan het ondersteunigsplatform 3 zoeken welk staafje tussen de oranje en gele connectors past 4 opgelost!
