Hey guys April 15 was this week, what did you guys do/will do with your Income Tax refund? Did you invest it? Put it in savings? Spend it on useless crap or does the IRS still have it because you still havent filed your taxes? Im getting about 1300 this year. I dont know if I want to buy a new rifle with it or just stick it in a CD with some change i got saved up. What are you guys doing with yours?

Well, all the great K'nex gunners have snipers(besides oodalumps , but his semi-auto makes up for that :-) ), so I thought i would make one. its nothing really new, nothing innovative. Just that it has a bolt to pull back the ram, that allows for rapid fire. It's could be as powerful as the other snipers but i can't put to much power because i have to pull the ram back with one hand(i am wimpy so you guys will have more power). it has a 9 round mag that could be extended if you wanted. Has a block trigger hooked up to a true trigger. The front is just a make barrel. Bipod folds up and hooks onto the front of the fake barrel. i am sorry that the bolt is hard to see in the gun, it on the right side. only the left side is shown in the first two pics. its in the third pic but is kind of hard to see. it works by having a "door" in the side of the barrel for the bold to travel in and out of. the bolt need tape because the orange connectors would come off instead of pulling back the ram(the ram is the same from the pack sniper). it has just your basic scope on it, nothing to new on that part. yea, i think thats it. instructions are being made.

For example, I plug in 15 minutes, and it comes up with 5 songs that will play for a total of 14:52, or 6 different songs that play for 15:12. Does such a program exist? I tried Googling, but couldn't come up with a good search phrase. A plugin for WMP11 would be ideal (yes, I still use WMP).

Question by imthatguy1125 | last reply
I need to be able to put plants on top of my TV and need a shelf/table of some sort to put them on. The tv is on a 15" deep microwave cart and there is about 2" clearance on either side. The cart is 25" wide. I have 15" wide 3/4" fiberboard that I can cut to needed width but can't come up with a good way to make it stand up (independently of the tv). I thought about just putting some legs on the board but am concerned that this will be strong enough to hold the weight of a plant (let's assume 35 lbs but I doubt I would put anything that heavy on it). Here is photo of what the table/stand will go on and the red lines are what I hope it to look like. Any help would be appreciated. Oh, and it has to be CHEAP! I've already spent $15 on 8' of board and don't want to spend a great deal more.

This is the contest me and TD were/are organizing. LOADING MeZak: 4/5. Very, very quick. OodAst3.6: 4/5. Not quite as quick as the MeZak, but it makes up for it in comfort. TBOS: 1/5. Truly agonizing. EAP: 3/5. Not bad. Tougher and more time consuming than the OodAst and MeZak, but much better than the TBOS. STRUCTURAL INTEGRITY / DURABILITY (Note, I'm rating according to how "Bendy" they feel.) MeZak: 4/5. Really sturdy. Barely any bend. OodAst: 4/5. Really sturdy, but again, just barely less sturdy than the MeZak. But not so much as to lower it a whole point. TBOS: 2/5. Only 3 layers. Bendy, bendy, bendy. EAP: 4/5. 5 layers, so it's obviously pretty good. RANGE (The first range is with 2 #64's, the second is with the maximum amount. Measurement was averaged out of 5 shots. I used Google Earth, but I promise I didn't cheat.) MeZak: 4/5. 39 feet. 63 feet. (Max. of 6 bands.) OodAst. 3/5. 44 feet. 52 feet. (Max. of 4 bands.) TBOS. 3/5. 41 feet. 41 feet. (Max. of 2 bands.) EAP: 2.5/5. 37 feet. 37 feet. (Max. of 2 bands.) FINAL SCORES MeZak: 12/15. #1 OodAst: 11/15. #2 TBOS: 6/15. #4 Ouch EAP: 9.5/15. #3 So, congrats MeZak, you win. (Though, I'd like to point out, this is based pretty much entirely on performance, not personal opinion.)

Hey, nothing new here besides the TAR that everybody has seen before. As you remember it looks very good and smooth. It is a truly bull pup design that makes it very realistic. It shot white rods in its 15 round magazine. More info: 1. Working Bull pup design. 2. Folding front sight. 3. Shoots 40 feet. 4. Ammunition is an orange con. 5. True trigger. 6. Ram rod powered. 7. Very comfortable cheek rest & design. 8. Solid seventh layer coating. 9. Removable magazine. 10. Holds up to 15 rounds. 11. Measures 30 INCHES! (Real TAR- 21 is 29). 12. Looks very well. 13. Ram rod is a red rod.

Hello, this is my Knex Sig 552. It was pretty cool because it looks fantastic. It was a very cool gun. It shot very well and held around 15 blue rods. It used some micro Knex which wasn’t that bad. It had a removable magazine to. The sights were also pretty cool to.

I'm struggling to figure out why range is so low for this thing. The barrel ends right after the bands stop pushing the projectile, the effective length is over a foot for the barrel, and even after adding 15+ lbs of band power the projectiles are going maybe 40 ft no matter what projectile I use. Any ideas?

I had a lot of old pics to work off of so the building experience was a lot like what I remember loving about knex, without the frustration. This blaster (:>) has a pretty solid mech. The slide, anchored by the gray connectors on the naked black rods (hehe), requires the full motion to prime, resulting in the longest pin draw possible using this draw/anchor method. The pin I have on this has a rubber washer of sorts that I had laying around, so far working wonders. No broken pieces were required, though I slid a broken black rod that was conveniently the perfect length into the barrel construction. As I mentioned in the title, I built this just yesterday and I expect that it'll be further modified -- the grip was something I had lying around and could essentially just throw on, the stock was rushed. I was planning on building another and I'd be happy to make instructions if there's any demand, though these pics alone may be enough for the few of you. (8/24/15) Link to better quality pictures, really unimpressed by what got uploaded here... https://imgur.com/a/4y1Se Credit to KILLERK for the TR of course. I just gave it a new body. Update 8/25/15: 3D printed a piece for the front of the barrel. Update 8/27/15: Small changes all over. I'm okay with the front grip. There's some mole skin on the handle. Changed the below pictures to reflect what I currently have, clearer pics in the imgur album. Update 8/31/15 Finally got around to classing up the stock, quite happy with how it turned out. A few other changes as well, updated the pictures once more. Should be able to build from these pics!

I was wondering if people would use a new knex site devoted completely to knex weapons? I have the knowledge to do it, but don’t know if it would be worth it. I AM NOT OUT TO MAKE MONEY. I just want to have a new site where I won’t have to sift through hundreds of useless guns (IE. block triggers, old "semi auto's") and models so bad that you think it’s a plane when its supposed to be a car. The only adds that i would put on the site would be to cover the cost of hosting. If you would use the site then please leave a comment saying so, and if you wouldnt use the site then please say why. For me to create this then i must have at least 15 people who will be active. 5/15 people 0 people to help If you are interested in helping the please pm me.

Then we would buy a gift for that person ship it off to wherever they live. But there would be a minimum and maximum so someone doesn't send a piece of paper or a laptop. Like $15-20. So what are your thoughts?
