just google mold making or something
i also found a page where they make lego parts using a rubber mold and ABS plastic as the filler. I used to play with legos when i was younger, found it pretty interesting..
Making a mold and filling the mold is just to clone a part you already have. Unless the 'small orange dealie' you have is exactly the same as the one you are missing, making a mold isn't the best option.
You could always travel to homedepot / lowes and browse their aisles looking for some parts that you could improvise with or just get some ideas. Some common materials that are easy to work with for nerf guns are wood, pvc, and thin sheet metal, which are all cheap and sold at most hardware stores.
Hot glue is very strong as a single part when it dries, but it is very hard to release it from the mold you use, because it is a glue... it's supposed to stick to things it touches. I've filled a section of PVC with hotglue in hopes of making a solid hotglue cylinder, but after it dried i couldn't get the hotglue cylinder out of the pvc, it was stuck. So it probably won't work for making a part.
But if you do get a sports car, opt for a manual (cheaper too). I learned on an auto, and now that I know how to drive a manual, I really wish my parents put me on a manual first. Also, having an auto sports car is just so boring. I have an auto 'stang and it is very boring to drive and shifts at the worst times (for economy).
They came out with this new tranny, called a tip tonic or some stupid name like that, but the idea is cool. Its a manual when you want it to be, and an automatic when you want it to be. My buddy recently bought a Nissan 350Z, and the tiptonic was actually the cheapest transmission, even though he gets the best of both worlds.
Oh yea, have fun with your insurance haha.
2.) A Clockwork Orange
3.) Pulp Fiction
4.) No Mans Land
5.) Office Space
Most of Quentin Tarantino films are great, cool guy. No Mans Land is a foriegn movie, but the story is ironic (and entertaining)
Starwars episode 3 rocked, but not on my all time fav. list. It was awesome to see how Anakin transformed into Vader.
Just a brass barrel? Probably won't help you much. But a nested brass barrel could improve your ranges a bit. I am sure you could gain a few feet replacing the barrel with a nested brass one.
reccomendation on more mods? A question is... will a brass barrel, longer too, help distance and accuracy?
And the guys who pimp out Hondas. Don't even get me started. Maddox put it best. If you're going to buy a shitty car, and put alot of money into it, why didn't you just buy a better car?
You buy a crappy old sports car for $3000 and $17000 in power adders, its gonna be faster than any $20000 car out there. Period.
I see enough cars and "project" cars everyday to know that there is only so much you can do to a car to make it better. If you go out and buy a honda civic and drop $50k into it, it is still a honda at the end of the day.
You guys try to dis putting money into low performance cars to make them better. How bout I dis all of you for spending money making nerf guns better?
"Haha, you guys spend money trying to make shitty nerf guns better, why don't you just go buy an airsoft or paintball gun?"
I find it ironic.
What we don't give a shit about is junk like this and talio's in this kind of thread. So what if merlinski posts more in off-topic, his posts in this thread were interesting to read for me personally, and could be for others as well. So no, it's not safe to assume sir.
And to answer your question, Mer ~ because of the fact you pretty much post here sporadically and a very large majority of the posts are in Off-Topic in a Nerf Forum (and several posts just spur arguments in several cases) doesn't necessarily make your points less valid to the readers, I think it's safe to assume that most of us probably just don't give a shit.
Why are you even posting in this thread then. I think I remember the topic being "Your Ride?", but I am not sure. Maybe someone could back me up there.
I still won't say what kind of car I drive, because it doesn't matter.
Fortunately, I just washed it not too long ago.
its a 1995 Mustang convertible. Slow as hell but very fun to drive, pulls donuts super easy thanks to shitty tires and rear wheel drive. No power adders so far.
Sounds like merlinski knows his stuff. Personally I have saved enough money up to buy a Nissan 300ZX, still looking for a good engine swap for it. Its gonna be my project car this summer. I was thinking of an RX7 or Fiero as well, but we'll see what i can get my hands on this summer.
Oh btw: merlinski what kind of infinity audio equipment do you have? I have their tweeters, 6x9s, 5x8s, and a 8"sub, all infinity. They make some quality stuff, im pretty impressed with them.
just sum it up as Classic Rock. ROCK ON!!!
Gotta stick with the classic rock bands.
I'm glad there are classic rock fans here. How bout them Iron Maiden? or Megadeth and Motley Crue. Uh oh, should I mention Twisted Sister?
I'm having flashbacks from the 80s.
4. Avoid making idiotic blanket statements about the applicability of well-tested methods.
I have a maxshot with the EXACT same problem as grinch has and I used epoxy the first time. It broke because the connection was brittle. Epoxy alone will not hold to the stress of firing. Don't give me shit about making idiotic statements of well tested methods, I already tested the method.
My mistake was, i didn't think about using epoxy with a brace at the time. I fixed my problem with a metal brace and screws, and it is still functional to this day, thats why I suggested it to you grinch.
I'm going to try to use plastic cement to "weld" the breaks together. Then, I'm going to use K&S sheet aluminum to brace them with epoxy. Sound good?
Sounds fine but make sure the sheet aluminum is thick enough so your max shot won't need another fixing in the future. I used sheet metal just thick enough so it didn't bend like paper when I held it at one end.
I have used epoxy many times, for nerf and non nerf applications. Fixing a knob is fine, there isn't that much stress. Fixing a nerf gun's case with epoxy is fine, as long as the case is not being forced apart at each shot.
Plumbers goop would hold better in this situation because it is more elastic and can absorb the shock of the fire better. Brittle is relative, and in this situation, yes, epoxy is brittle.
What he needs is a mechanical connection.
I say, when a gun breaks, repair it with something stronger than what it was origionally made of. (steel)
Cool, nerf guns are made of steel now! Awesome. Thats so fascinating!
Why are you fools suggesting epoxy. Have you ever used epoxy? heres a hint, its brittle dumbasses.
Thats next to taping it with electrical tape.
If you absolutely are determined to glue a stress point, use plumbers goop. Why? Because plumbers goop is flexible and will not crack like epoxy/elmers/plastic cement/ect. No garuantee how long that will hold, maybe a few shots.
If you want a permanent fix, go to homedepot/lowes/ace whatever, and buy strips of metal. Flat rectangular pieces or anything of the like. Using screws attach the two plastic casings together. This way, the max shot can still be opened like normally unlike a glue connection.
Where would all my local bboy and dance clubs without VINYL??? You can't dance to a cd, thats just gay, all the tracks gonna be shitty quality and you can't blend or scratch (not fingernail scratch) them.
Vinyl is the future.. and the past. CDs just suck ass in my opinion. Except for mp3 cds which are good for playing in the car, but thats about it.
I'm pretty much even between mp3s and vinyl, vinyl is good for big groups of people, mp3s are good for personal use. My final answer is vinyl.
to loosely quote kitty from that 70's show, "why don't they just stick record players in cars?"
Contol Panel(Classic View)>Speech>Text To Speech(It's a Tab)
If you want a quick laugh, go to window's text to speech like was said (win2k works too), turn the speed down to 1/4, and type this:
Ooh Jesus Christ. I'm so high. High is good.
Yes, she certainly sounds like one high old lady. hahahahhahah. Especially when she says: "I'm so high".
Microsoft Mary r0x0rzz me hardcore.
Oh yeah, the more you slow it down, the more stoned she is.
Who cares if either one has better graphics? I just care about the game that they make.
Yep, Nintendo has better quality games on their systems, period.
I like quality better than graphics. I still play some of the old marios and megamans on my emulators because their gameplay rocks my ass. Playstations games = vomit.
I guess we could just find stronger springs for modding, but I really would like it if they used a bigger plunger tube and more restriction in the recent pistols.
I guess we can't have everything huh.
Thanks for the info peeps, I think I will try my luck again at my conduit section of lowes/home depot for 16 and 20 mm. If not I guess I will take the sanding approach.. which sounds painstakingly rediculous already!
and Mr. CheeseNerfer, Nirvana wasn't just a seattle thing, it left a big mark in rock/alternative. Although now when I turn on the radio I want to beat the shit outta this new wave of whiney alternative bands singing about their girl problems.
thanks for any help (*ahem bolt master zero* )
Mmmm, angst. I never got into them mostly because they did what they preached against.
And you have shown everyone you don't know a thing about Nirvana.
Listen to before a football game? Nirvana songs don't pump you up, they mellow you out, in my opinion at least.
I heart nirvana.
think il take out the goo but i dont think tha ill drink it, and arent the air restrictors INSIDE the barrels so i already did tha and i forget to plug up the pressure release valve so thanks anyway even though i think tha calling me green boy and telling me to fire them up the ears were insults....and if they were.....excellent insults biatch
You're profile has a picture of a green mega man. Hes a boy, and hes green. Greenboy. Judging by the way you typed, you seem stupid enough to drink the goo. Firing them in your ears is just a method of determining if a mod made the gun better. The longer you are deaf, the better the mod is. I do it all the time and it works, trust me on this greenboy.
