N64 Cartridge Mod

I was wondering if it would be possible to mod an N64 cartridge to remove the default internal memory for it and allow like an SD card or some other flash drive and be able to run homebrew games and backups... I enjoy playing the N64, i own tons of games for it but it just gets in the way lol I want to be able to backup all my games and consolidate them into a single cartridge if its possible Thanks

Laser Cartridge dangers?

I'm thinking about messing around with a laser printer cartridge (They're cool, look at them- they're just asking to be made into a laser gun!) Is there any safety concerns I should worry about? (Most likely an HP cartridge, I haven't acquired it yet, I just saw it.) Looks similar to picture.

Spud Gun Cartridges

Is there any way that I can make cartridges for my spud gun? I plan on making a new gun anyways. I plan on using this to pwn at airsoft, kind of like Hellboy's big ass gun. The problem is that it takes too long to reload and during that time, im dead in the water. I tried a two man team, but its still too slow. You know how the musket went from power, paper, blah, blah projectile? Thats how the spud gun is now. I need it to be what modern guns are, where the bullet, powder and firing cap are all in one unit... I just need plans... My fuel is 91% achl.

Co2 cartridge cannon? Answered

Hi ... in a quandary, and having problems on were to start.  Drawing a blank.  I need to develope a small Co2 cartridge Cannon that will be placed into a 1/12 scale RC airplane, that will be used to deploy a drouge parachute on command.  Can anyone provide me with a starting point?  Do you by chance have something all ready in your files that can be used.  The drouge shute when deployed, is 72" in diameter, and the package that contains the parachute is 3 x 3 x 3.  It needs to be projected at lease six feet from the airplane before opening up. Thank you very much,  for any assistance that you can provide.  Richard T Leiterman ( KE6RIM )

Is this dangerous? (Answered, thank you)

A friend recently bought a new house with an extremely large rural garden. While we were having a "tour of the grounds", her daughter found what appears to be a gun cartridge (pictured).  Thinking quickly, our friend handed the cartridge to me for "safe disposal". What is it? If I rip it open, what will I find? (It is about 70mm long, and feels hefty enough that it could contain lead shot.) UPDATE Thanks for all the helpful answers - pretty well confirmed what I thought I knew (except for the sabot!). I'll keep it safe and dry until I have time to dissect it with the boys.

Replacing a Pentair Pleated cartridge?

Oh this is not funny. I am trying to replace the cartridge not clean it, that's easy. With this cartridge you must take the hard plastic core out of the old one ad put it back into the new one. I have no idea how to get it back in there. The top of the cartridge hole is very rubbery. So the plastic core will not slide easily. Let me know if you figure it out.[some time this summer] since it only has to be replaced once every 6 years or so.

CO2 Cartridge discharge thrust?

I am trying to figure out how much thrust would be created with a full discharge of a typical small CO2 cartridge.  Way back when in High School we built CO2 powered drag racing cars in shop.  (I can't remember how we dischardged them?).  But I want to rig a similar device to discharge underwater.  I want it to give a "turbo boost" to a fairly heavy model boat after the boat gets moving a bit.   So it doesn't have to get the boat moving or up to a speed. It's more to give the boat a good push after it gets going. How much thrust would that generate? In water?  I could probably rig 2 cartridges to fire simultaneously on each side of the boat.

I'm thinking about making a remote controlled Co2 confetti cannon and I'm planning on using a 12v 3/8" solenoid rated at 0-10 bar which will be operated by a relay controlled by a networked arduino. I realise that they run at different pressures depending on their temperature, but this will be used indoors. Thanks!

What would you say the maximum distance a 12g CO2 cartridge could launch a ~12oz cylinder? The cylinder can be adjusted be top/bottom heavy or have its weight increased all around. The design of the barrel would (VERY) roughly look like the image at the bottom.  The cartridge would be in a housing unit at the butt of the launcher.  It would be set it off in a to-be-determined way, shooting out the cylinder(2 2/5inch diameter, 8 inches long, ~12 oz) that would be resting in front of it.

It did seem to work but now it's not. I flushed the cartridge with water several times to clean it out and then placed magenta ink in and the first through prints it started to print the Magenta but then stopped and how all it seems to do is leak from the cartridge and flood the base. The printer is a HP 1220c using HP 45 Cartridge which has the print head on the actual cartridge. Can anyone suggest anything? Thanks Phil
