Cast Your Teeth for Halloween
Eh, kinda. XD Thank you!
Yeah, that about sums it up. In its past life, this tire was holding down hay tarps for many many years. Unfortunately, changing the wheel would mean cutting off the pedals, making a new shaft, and making a new hub. To me its not really worth the effort to change. Its ridable enough haha. Thank you for the question!
Its really not too bad. Getting started is the hard part lol. Steering isn't too bad on a flat surface, but the road is slightly slanted on the left side. The wide surface area makes the wheel want to follow that contour of the ground with raises the chance of tipping. It takes a lot of concentration to ride haha. And yes! Speed does help a lot!
That thought actually crossed my mind! I have seen mini tightrope rolling robots use that same principal. The only problem I see is having an effective spinning gyroscope in such a small space confinement. If you attempt it I would love to see the results! Thank you for the comment!
I have a feeling that a lot of people would have that same reaction lol. That's a very good suggestion! I have plans to angle and cap the ends of the 2" square tubing to minimize sharp edges. I didn't have time to do that now though because I had to have it done by the end of the Wheels contest haha. Thanks for the comment!
How to Build a Car Tire UnicycleView Instructable »
Thank you! I appreciate the kind words, and I'm glad you could take something useful away from this Instructable.
Well, thanks! But wait until you see my NEXT project...
Hey there! Thanks for the comment. The other handle just makes it easier to take off the ignition port cap. As to your second question, I believe I showed everything on the inside. If you're still having trouble, let me know!
Home Made 5 String Banjo, Low Budget Built From Parts and Some Scrap.
Hmm, these are interesting points. Thank you for the advice! I don't know much about these, but I would assume a regulated SCUBA or CO2 tank would last at least a little while. With linear motors, you would still have to carry a battery pack, and linear motors move much slower than air muscles. I guess each has there pros and cons. Thanks again!

Haha, that last part is great advice. This is an interesting idea. It's cool that it requires no tools or mods to the extinguisher as well. Bravo lol. Thanks for the comment!
Unfortunately, I don't have any social media accounts. However I do have a Youtube channel. I only have one video right now, but I have plans for many more! I'll post a link soon.
Haha, thank you so much!! I'm really glad you enjoyed it. I will :D.
I have been thinking of building an exo-suit, and these might just be the ticket. I bet paintball CO2 tanks would work great for this too.
How to Make Air Muscles!
Yeah, that's a great idea. That my be a good addition to a future project..(hint hint) Thanks for the comment!
Thanks! If you're looking for cheap gas masks, I'd recommend a website called CHKadels. They have them for $20.00 or under. I think I'd invest in a cheap, real military surplus gas if your preparing for the zombies lol. Just don't buy a GP-5 lol. Thanks for the comment!
It almost seems a shame to make something this nice only to light it on fire haha :D. Good luck in the fire contest!
How to Make a Racing Lawn Mower (Updated!)
Huh... Interesting lol.
Yeah, I totally agree. This (if used correctly) is actually quite safe. And I can see why you're concerned about the PVC pressure vessel. A metal one would be safer, and could hold more air pressure thus resulting in a larger fireball. Thanks for the comment!
Hmmm... that makes a lot more sense lol. But "poof chamber" is more fun to say :). Thanks for the comment!
As a cheaper alternative to buying pure silver, you can obtain it from pre-1965 quarters or half dollars. Just a little info I thought you might find interesting :). And also, good luck in the Fire Challenge fellow competitor lol!
This is perfectly safe, so long as it's used in a safe and responsible manner.
I really appreciate your comment, and agree with you 100%!! Seems to me, this next generation is being raised to be a bunch of what I like to call "snowflakes." Kid's who are being sheltered from reality, and aren't allowed to have fun because it's "dangerous." Either that or their creativity is being held back for fear of, dare I say...failure lol. Musn't let the little "snowflakes" fail at something. I guess I can't really say too much though, as I am only 15 myself lol.
I can see it now. Have some friends over for a nice barbecue dinner, then tell them you need to grab a lighter, and whip this out :D. That would be great haha. "You're gonna have to stand behind this heat shield while I light my grill" lol.
Well that's ironic lol.
He sounds like an awesome teacher lol. Thanks for the comment!
That would be awesome. Be sure to post your pics when you're done!
Haha, I'm glad :D.
That's a good idea. I don't think I've heard of that before. Thanks for sharing!

Lol, thanks. I'm glad you enjoyed it. :D
Yeah, I thought the same thing the first time I fired it off lol.

Make a Wooden Propeller
I really like the idea of building a larger scale E.M.P generator for testing purposes. I have been thinking of using a MOT as a high voltage source. However, when I was doing some research, I found that the most common way to generate an electromagneticpulse is via a capacitor bank. Could I use nothing more than a MOT instead of a capacitor bank?
Thank you :).

Water Rocket 2-Stage Mechanism
Good to hear! If you have anymore questions just let me know!
Great instructable!! Just a quick question though. So the higher the antenna is in the atmosphere the better? And if so, you could (in theory) use a long thin wire attached to a kite or a weather balloon to temporarily generate more power, correct?

This is a really creative idea! I love using junk that people think is useless lol. Think of how much can be made from things people just throw away!
Junkyard Compass and Thermometer
In theory, this can filter anything a real mask could. Which includes things like: anthrax, Ames strain, tularemia, brucellosis, Q-fever, Coxiella burnetii, botulism, botulin toxin, Staphylococcal Enterotoxin B (SEB), Stem rust, both wheat and rye stem rust, Rice blast, QL, VX, DF, OPA, Mustard gas, Sarin (GB), Rainbow Herbicides, Phosgene, Chlorine, and BZ. And things like air-borne nuclear fallout, dust, pollen, fumes (gas, paint, etc...), asbestos, and mold spores.Just to name a few :).
