Hello, I am wondering if any people know how a switchblade is made in a tool making shop. I am hoping to make a switchblade this year. I would like to learn from anybody who is able to teach. I am only able to find one or two videos online which help. I know that in many countries, switchblades are not legal. However, here in Austria, switchblades are legal to own and even hold in public. I apologise for my language. I speak German and Spanish. However, I speak some English, but I learned it later in life. I read English better than I write.

I cant seem to find this awesome game on the internet. it is a flash game, where you would make a sort of figure,( a caterpillar) and you were able to make it walk using these muscles. anyone heard of it. you would basically animate a figure to walk.

I just moved my office and now there is a pole in my cubicle. I've decided to turn this heinous and inglorious pole into a beautiful and realistic indoor tree. The pole is 6" in diameter (18" circumference), 9' high. I've ordered birch bark tubes to wrap around (http://www.barkcanoe.com/materials.htm) the pole. The trunk is set. Next up is to make branches for the top of the tree. Anyone have experience making branches and leaves look realistic? Where can I buy artificial leaves? Should I buy an artificial tree and cut off the leaves? Should I make the leaves myself? Thanks!?
Im new to instructables ive tried a few easy paracord projects but now want to try making my own knife I have a piece of 01 gauge 3mm high carbon steel and a few designs to start. I'm looking for some tips on shaping the blade, hardening and final sharpening. I'm sure there are lots of little tricks out there hopefully this way I won't have to learn them the hard way. Thanks dugie

I know there are already instructables on grappling hooks but none are quite what i want . criteria are :strong,cheap, a good weight heavy enough to get distance on a throw but not so much that it feels like carrying round a rock , adaptable from tasks like getting up a tree to using as an anchor from a boat(which i plan to make at some point) to dragging logs around etc. i have an idea of welding together some heavy duty nails or screws. or possibly putting some screws into wood but im worried that the former would be quite difficult for me to make with m lack of experience and the latter to be to weak .so please could anyone reading this put there ideas forward , thanks wood wizard

I am trying to make a hidden trail that can only be followed with a black light. This will essentially be done by following a series of "bread crumbs" that are only visible in the UV spectrum. I've had some success with a highlighter; the bark soaks up the ink, making it invisible to the naked eye. It's lasted a few rainy days, but I am not certain it will last for (at least) several months. I was wondering if there is another way to do this, one that is a little more weatherproof.

They go by various names - wave boards, ripstick... They have two caster wheels and a spring loaded joint in the center. I've seen the caster wheels (inline style) in a DIY shop. Maybe there is a trick to making the connector using a simple hinge and some bungee elastic?http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Caster_Board

Hello, I was thinking about ripping out all the rotted wood in my backyard garden and replacing it with basically a waist high garden area to grow herbs and I stumbled upon papercrete one day. I've never used papercrete let alone concrete in general. I was just wondering if I could get some general help on where to start. I'd like to make this out of papercrete block and papercrete mortar if all possible but I don't know what amount of newspaper, water, and portland concrete I need... or even how to make molds. -Jimmy

Does anyone have any references for how to create or modify eyeglass frames? I have a couple of very hard and nice looking sapphire crystal rounds from very expensive projector lights that I would love to make into a set of hi-tech John Lennin glasses. Any tips? Links? Instructables I missed? I know I could probably cajole an eyeglass place, but want to do this on the super cheap. Thanks!

Hi, basically I am planning to make a device, like a elongating stick/rod. Based on a meter (scale) it should keep elongating, when the current is supplied. For instance say we have rod of 3 feet in length (3 pieces). The rod will be in the device, when I supply the power to the device, it should protrude to 1 feet and then again for more power another 1 more feet and more power another one more feet. Can some one pls help. Thanks.

Dear: Instructables Just to let you know I have been having a lot of fun with my current bow. My only complaint is that it is not something you would use for hunting. It barley can shoot arrows at 35 pounds. I was just wondering if someone could point me in the right direction for a hunting bow? I don't know if my bow could be used for hunting or how much force it can shoot at but all I know is that it can't be used for hunting it doesn't have enough force. I'd prefer to make my next bow out of pvc if I can. Thank you. From: Noah

I live 150' from a swift flowing stream (about 35 vertical feet from stream to house) and I am looking for a way to use the energy of the stream to pump water uphill to my garden and a "water feature" I'm building. My wife is more concerned about how the contraption will look in her yard, but I simply want something that will work. ANY advice would be appreciated ! Thanks
