The FX-9 series has come to an end.

As you may or may not know. I have been working on a series of guns called FX-9 since January of 09. I have recently decided that I have made all the guns I can under that name. Don't get me wrong I'll still be making guns just not under the name FX-9.Here are all of the guns in the series:https://www.instructables.com/id/FX_9_Sniper_Rifle/https://www.instructables.com/id/FX_9_Crossbow/https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-FX-9-Pistol-V12/https://www.instructables.com/id/FX-9-TAW-or-Tactical-Assault-Weapon/https://www.instructables.com/id/FX-9-Crossbow-V25/https://www.instructables.com/id/FX-9-Beast-Pistol/So now that I'm done with the FX-9 series I will be working on a series called the Thunderbolt series. This series of guns will be meant for war only. So keep an eye out for the Thunderbolt series.Thanks for readingKiller~SafeCracker

How to Re-route 9 Volt Batterie from Smoke Detector

Hello, We have 14 feet high ceilings and smoke detectors in 4 rooms at that height. Not wanting to crawl up the ladder to switch the 9 Volt batteries, one would think you could simplify this task. Use a 9 volt battery connector to connect to the battery ports in the smoke detectors, a wire each to a central point in the house, such as a hall closet, where each wire ends in a 9 volt battery box. I can find various 9 volt battery connectors to purchase, have umpteen yards of low voltage wire (from sprinkler system installation). What I don't know is, is there a limitation on the length of wire I can have a 9 volt battery on one end, and the smoke detector on the other end? Thank you. Stefan

nichrome wire

I got some nichrome wire off eBay, and it works great but when I connected it to a 9 volt battery it barley got hot, then I attached it to 4 x AA batteries and it got red hot. why is this? I don't understand because the 9 volt gives out 9 volts(duh) , but the 4x AA batteries only gives out 6 volts.

Gmod 9 Online

I was thinking about doing an Instructable for how to play Gmod 9 online in servers. But since it might be a long one I figured I'd ask if anyone wanted it or not before I do. I probably will still make it but maybe not if nobody wants it. Does anyone? --Please, don't leave any comments saying how bad gmod 9 is. I do own gmod 10 but it just won't work on my computer so I settled for the next best thing until I get a new one.And this would also be for people who are in my same situation and want to play online.--

Ribbon Cutting at Pier 9

Yesterday (Thursday September 12th) was the official ribbon cutting at Pier 9.  There were many people in attendance including Autodesk CEO Carl Bass and San Francisco Mayor Ed Lee. In Instructables' tradition of being nontraditional, the ribbon was made of metal and cut by Carl with a grinder. Tours were given after the official cutting to those who haven't yet experienced the awesomeness of our workshop! Read some more in the article on San Francisco Business Times.

WW2 Springfield: Review

Here is the review for the WW2 Springfield by Knexstealth.What to expect: Innovation: 7/10 There are not too many new things but it's a great gun.Strength: 9 /10 The gun is strong over all the connection where the stock meets the barrel is a bit iffy.Range: 9/10 I got a range of 135 feetLooks: 10/10 This is by far the most realistic model on the website.Parts: 710 It uses a lot of yellow connectors and orange connectors. More then most have.Handle: 9/10 It's small but very realistic.Stock: 9/10 Nice and sturdy. Almost an exact replica.Barrel: 8/10 It's just a normal sling shot barrel but it works.Trigger: 9/10 I have never seen it before but I guess it came from katarukito.At the end: I would give the gun 9/10.Here is the link to the gun. https://www.instructables.com/id/WW2-Springfield/Thanks for readingKiller~SafeCracker

Z35 K'nex Assault Rifle: Review

Here is the review for the Z35 K'nex Assault Rifle by Oblivitus.What to expect:Innovation: 9/10 Very innovative loading system. It also has a new trigger system. Strength: 9/10 Very strong. The one weak part is the handle, the connection to the body is weak.Range: 8/10 The range is good for a mag gun, about 40-45 feet.Looks: 9/10 One of the better looking guns on this site. The one thing that could make it look better is using less blue rods.Parts: 9/10 Uses quite a few parts, But it's worth it. Handle: 7/10 The handle is good but the connection is weak.Stock: 9/10 very sturdy Barrel: 10/10 Innovative slide mech. Trigger is very innovative as well. Magazine: 9/10 New and doesn't use cut parts.Extras. Bipod:8/10 not the best but it holds up the gun.At the end: I would give the gun 9/10.Here is the link to the gun. https://www.instructables.com/id/Z35-Knex-Assault-Rifle/Thanks for reading.Killer~SafeCracker

Wanted: 9 volt light sensor module

Calling all you that know and enjoy making circuits. Here is my problem.  This is too bulky of a solution with a relay switch and 12v battery pack. https://www.instructables.com/id/DC-Low-Voltage-LIght-Sensor-Switch/ What I would like is a 9 volt input and 9 volt output.  Actually, whatever the input should equal output.  So if I connect 3 v battery, I want 3 v output.  Right now I need 9 volt in = 9 volt out.  No Relays!!!  Simple and clean circuit board only. The LED can't be soldered to the board.  I need the capability of extending from the board with wire to adapt to my needed projects. On another note, if you know of something already on the market, please send a link.  I will be happy to make the purchase. OH... no modules that need a microcontroller.  Need a stand alone module. Thanks! Looking forward to hearing back soon. The Water Dog

9 layer double barrel shotgun model?!

Hi guys! i'm going to make a double barrel shotgun , and yes, NINE LAYERS THICK!!! it will cost me some time, but i'm almost 100% sure it will be a shorty, it may shoot and it may not it will also use my secret break action system that does not acquire hingers or ball joints! it might be disturbing to flip it(flip and close) but i'll try and it might take a loooong time, and maybe i'll try my best!
