staple gun into a BB gun

There's this guy on youtube named GatheringSticks made a working shotgun out of a Bostitch staple gun. can anyone look into this, possibly research it and build a less-lethal(and less-illegal) version of this? I can't access youtube from this PC, but the video is easy to find, just search "homemade shotgun" I had been planning on making a single-shot pistol from a Stanley staple gun that I have, but I just don't have the necessary tools... yet... and don't worry, my version was going to be for self-defense and home protection. also, if someone does make an instructable for a staple-BB-gun, I might use the basics of that for my "StaPistol"

leaving ;(

Sadly since i sold my knex (about a year ago now) i honestly dont know what there is to make so im leaving instructables. i havent been here in so long i struggled to find out how to make this forum thread. and now that i am addicted to youtube and minecraft i cant see myself ever making another instructable. so thats why im leaving. but on the brighter side im starting a new youtube series but it has nothing to do with building or anything that you would find on here. anyways its been fun sharing my creations with everyone and i had a good time soooooo............ i guess its goodbye...                                                                          -slithien-                                                                               RIP                                                          11/08/2006  to  29/05/2012

Rating Method

Some time ago YouTube changed their rating system from stars, to likes and, dislikes. I was just curios if it would be illegal for Instructables to utilize this same method. Also, if anyone prefers the like/dislike method better than the stars method then, tell me in the comments.

My Favorite Food Author

I like the instructables here. They are good. But the most useful food instructions  I have seen are from Mark Bittman of the NYT  His column was called the Minimalist and they are on youtube Here is an example, fresh pea soup. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cTUVTqWc_Vc

Directional SPeaker

I saw a youtube video of a guy who built his own directional speaker (actually I remember it as a directional megaphone as he would talk into it, and it would target a person). I was wondering how easy it would be to do this? Can we build one with household material? Thanks for being awesome guys!

I messed up one sound setting in Vista. And now I can't hear youtube videos...

Can you help me? Trying to tweak the sound, on my laptop running vista, I changed the setting under speakers properties>advanced>Default format. I foolishly changed the default format to another setting, thinking I could always switch it back. Immediately the sound from my youtube windows ceased. I tried switching it back and applying the settings. No joy. I tried restoring default settings. No joy. I can still hear windows sounds, just not stuff I WANT to hear. Anybody know how I can fix this? EDIT: Nevermind, I fixed it...errgh...should've just rebooted in the first place.

My Jontron/Peanutbuttergamer inspired Video Game web series - Would love some feedback!

Hey all! I recently started a gaming show on my Youtube channel after being inspired by the likes of Jontron, PBG, Egoraptor, Game Theory and a few others. I want these to be as good as they can, and are made to a professional standard (in my opinion), with HD footage from both games and live action shots (courtesy of a camera I won in an instructables competition!), and the commentaries themselves are recorded with a professional studio microphone with a pop shield.  Anyway, there are 2 episodes out so far, and I would love to hear your feedback on them! The sonic one was the first one released, and I got a lot of feedback on that which I tried implementing in to second one (Animal Crossing). TL;DR I'd love your feedback for this new series I'm attempting, and I hope you enjoy the videos! :-) LATEST EPISODE: EPISODE ONE (sonic the hedgehog for the Sega Genesis/Megadrive) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JYTz0XOIhE4

The use of copyrighted music in Videos

Quick question; what are the rules regarding the use of music in videos posted on Instructables (or on YouTube, through Instructables)? I ask because I'd like to post sound clips and some may contain copyrighted music. Is there a 30 second rule or something? Do I just have to give credit?

Instructable images on another site

I noticed a spike in youtube views the other day.  Based on YouTube analytics, the views were coming from a buzzfil.net site out of France. I went to the site and notice that  the images and new text (love google translate) were pulled off one of my instructables and placed on that site.  There is no credit (or link) given to instructables.  In addition, the adsense revenue was zero since the banner ads don't show up.   Here is the original: Part 1: https://www.instructables.com/id/Planter-Box-from-Pallets/ Part 2: https://www.instructables.com/id/Hanging-Basket-Column/ Buzzfil Version http://buzzfil.net/article/11630/c-mignon,non-classe/il-ne-savait-pas-trop-quoi-faire-avec-ses-palettes-en-bois-mais-son-idee-est-hyper-genial-9.html Is this pretty common?

Hey guys. I just wanted to put a quick message out to all of you. I am leaving. To be honest I havn't been able to build anything major since the I bow, also my priorities have changed, it is getting to the buisiness end of the school year here so free time is at a premium. I also have my new guitar, facebook, youtube and modern warfare 2 all fighting for my attention. I will be leaving the site and knex for the forseeable future effective immediately (not like mota boi and KGB who just hung around) My facebook is private so don't try to find it. If you must contact me, send a message on youtube. If you want to get your ass handed to you on MW2 my psn is tehlogicboy. Well thats all for now. goodbye.

DIY Mandolin Rail for Tack Piano effect?

I've seen several videos in YouTube for pianos that have Mandolin Rails. These devices are felt strips attached to a metal "rail" that can be swung in and out of place to give a normal sounding upright piano a ragtime sound. They look pretty simple to make, but I have not found any webpages with instructions on how to build one. Anybody have any input? Most of the materials look like they would be readily available, except for the 88 metal tabs that go at the end of each felt tab. I found a website that sells the tabs pretty cheap http://www.player-care.com/resale.html  Here are a couple of YouTube videos that show Mandolin Rails in action: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fQYIM3CSaxQ&feature;=player_detailpage https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EEfsLzwTCxM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gl1Qt2ZuHZA
