Introduction: Micro Rubber Band Gun
smallest rubber band gun I ever built shoots small bits of wire
with a trigger mechanism and a storage box.
I have a knack for miniaturizing things.
I challenge myself to create something with minimal stuff when bored; this has led to most of my functional miniatures.
Many were built almost 7-9 years ago including this tiny rubber band gun which I found last week in a vial with chalk carvings and some other micro stuff. After replacing the rubber band it is functional again.
Has 6 individual parts, and probably took less than an hour to assemble.
The main body is rolled from a bit of thick aluminium foil to form the barrel and to hold the trigger in place.
The mechanism is similar to my DIY rubber band gun instructable.
For the plunger, a bit of sturdy wire with a bent loop serving to hold the rubber band and to arm it has been used.
Tiny rubber bands: a thin slice from rubber tubing!
