Licensing

Any thoughts about the licensing? I think I chose the wrong one for the rubber band gun I posted. I just noticed that the license I picked says that you can't use this Instructable commercially. I would prefer that people be able to make and sell the rubber band gun if they wish. Also, I am not concerned if someone does not attribute the design to me. It would be nice but not necessary. I did not make the design to receive accolades.

Upcoming: Klutz Rubber Band-Powered Contest

Coming soon, a new contest where every entry is powered by rubber bands, it's the Klutz Rubber Band-Powered Contest! The rubber bands can be twisted or stretched, alone or in combination. Just remember that no weapons are allowed. We're doing this to have fun, not hurt others so let's see the creativity fly!We mean that flying part literally. There are prizes for any type of creation, but there will also be a special prize for the best flying contraption. To encourage more people to enter, and to make the entries more easily reproducible, we want to see Instructables that use materials that are cheap and easy to find and have the whole thing be something that can be done in an afternoon or an evening.More details will be coming soon, but that should be enough to get you going for now. So get your rubber bands ready!

International Band

I was thinking, wouldn't it be cool if someone could start a band where each member has never met before and lived in another part of of the world. For recording and coming up with songs they would sort of make a conference call or a webcam conference and meet up that way. They would then send each of they're recordings of their part that they played together to one person who combined them for the song. I don't know just one of my random thoughts. Interesting though.

Band Guitar songs, discussions on great songs with two decent guitar parts

So ive been playing quite a bit with my band recently. The problem i find is that with most songs the guitar parts are very dull, or there are few oppurtunties to play something interesting. I wondered if we could discuss songs that are generally quite interesting and varied throughout, rather than samey. Im not looking for anything particulary complicated just something fun to play. For example 'Nothing else matters' and the 'day that never comes' were fun to play throughout, although im not particularily worried about the genre.

DIY Metal Rubber Band Gun

This rubber band gun works just like the wooden ones you've probably seen. The difference is that this is made of metal, has a safety, and includes a flashlight and laser sight. OK, just a wee bit over the top, but impressive. via bbgadgets

Rubber Band Gun Made out of Cardboard?

Would anyone know how to make a rubber band gun like the one made by Vat19 here?: http://www.vat19.com/dvds/bandit-guns-pump-action-semi-automatic-rubber-band-gun.cfm I imagine making it would be fairly easy, but finding what pieces to cut out would be a challenge. The pieces probably would probably made out of thick cardboard preferably. (because cardboard is easy to get)

Rubberband gun shooter thing help

I'm new so I'm not sure if I'm posting in the  right area but i need help. I'm trying to make a rubber band gun shooter thing but sometimes when i try to let the rubber band go it gets stuck. I originally used a metal piece with three angles and now im using a old allen rench. Normally when pulled back i use my hand to keep it steady but since i needed to take the picture i used a nail (probably not the best thing to use when stretching a rubber band), but anyways i was wondering if anyone had an idea to make the rubber band  ball thing always go off? P.S.  need an idea for the wooden gun shape.

Knex gun using a slide

I was told to post this in the forums, so here it is. I was wandering around this site and found a man that had created a pistol that uses a slide to move the firing pin instead of grabbing it directly. I made his gun and improved upon it. I turned his simple pistol into a rifle/SMG There are of course some problems: cannot handle rapid fire for extended periods of time single shot doesn't shoot far but cannot handle additional rubber bands. It's pretty cool though. Right now i'm trying to increase the range and make it more durable. But i can't think of how i can improve it anymore.

Used Band Saw Blades Wanted

The thing I'm cutting does not need a band saw to be cut, only a blade, and a dull one at that.  If anyone replaces a band saw blade, I would be glad to take the old one off your hands.  I will definitely pay for shipping.  Thank you.

Massive Rubber Band Ball Destroys car

I was just surfing the interwebs and i found this video.Some guys drive to the top of a hill with a massive rubber band ball in the back of their van and then roll the ball down the hill hoping to hit the car, The ball bounces as it goes down the hill so the first time they roll it they only hit the back of the car, the second roll is a miss but the 3rd time they land it right in the side leading to a surprising amount of damage.Video is a bit bright to begin with but it gets better.Skip to 1:55 for the best hit.

Doubts...

So some how i'm gonna be part of a temporary band starting tomorrow. i was asked if i would play bass for some people and i was like sure, whatever. But the event we will hopefully be performing at is in about a month. We haven't even practiced yet. So i'm having some doubts as to whether we'd just be wasting our time. Anyone got any advice.

K'NEX RBG Version 2

It's been a long while, but I have been thinking about my RBG all this time. During this hiatus I spent some time playing with knex guns that fired rods; however, they never came close to the fun I had with the RBGs.So, what resulted from those past experiments comes a slightly smaller and less bulkier RBG that is quite solid. I listened to the many suggestions and comments, and managed to solve a few quirks from the original design.What will be posted here on Instructables is not just the mechanism itself, but barrels, and other optional offerings to customize your RBG.In the mean time I'd like to add an honorable mention to Revtiedye for his take on the RBG.I hope your summer is going great(State-side) and stay tuned.

My new semi-auto RBG

This is my new semi-automatic, true trigger RBG. Normally nothing new. But this one can take twice the amount of rubberbands. Thanks to some creative use of a red gear ( I'm aware I didn't use an actual red gear, that's because I didn't have any. So I sliced the pegs of a yellow gear ) This actually started as a mod for Dsman1's RBG, but it turned out to be something different. It still uses the system that is somewhat his, of a red gear turning a blue gear. It can take 15+ rubberbands without tearing itself apart ( Nearly does though ;). My record is about 18 or 19 rubberbands on it. The reliability isn't 100%, because there is an uneven amount of pits in a red gear (33), which are divided by 4 stages. So it's hard to get a good pattern for the rubber bands to shoot of. This basicly means that sometimes it either won't shoot, or it will shoot 2 rubberbands at once. I don't know if this is a problem with an actual red gear though, since my altered yellow is far from perfect. Do you want me to post it, or is there no demand for a new RBG?

Making it more powerful?

Hi,  I have brought a sphero 2.0 which for those who don't know it a robotic ball about the size of a baseball. I decided to try and make a car for it out of knex although I will only be able to make it go backwards and forwards. I built a frame thing with a small wheel in the middle of it and sphero sits on top. The axle that the wheel is on has a gear which then connects to the drive wheel axles on the back using another gear. This works fine when in the air but when on the ground it's too heavy for sphero to power it. I've tried putting bigger gears on the front and vice versa, i've also tried using a pulley but it just isn't budging at all.  Say if I was using the standard knex motors how would I go about making it produce more power?
