- ICE NINE
That is niiiice. Is it 3D printed? And do you have internals to put into it to test the strength? I don't think it won't matter as much for the tornado, as the internal parts take most of the stress, but it would be nice to see some good progress.
Apologies if this has been brought up before, but how could acetone vapor smoothing or epoxy resin smoothing 3D prints affect this? We all know we don't want the rough texture of 3D printed parts that haven't been sanded, and they remain weak in between layers, but acetone vapor smoothing would both bind the layers better and smooth the outside without removing material. Drawbacks of this method include the required use of ABS plastic, and the toxic and flammable fumes, of course. Resin smoothing would bond the layers even better, adding considerable strength, and smooth them out. Either of these methods help the practicality of making negative molds without bubbles between the layers of the print, and general use of 3D printed parts. Hand mixed silicon could be poured over a smoothed 3D print to make a very high resolution mold, or the printed part could be used in greensand (special sand for aluminum casting) to make aluminum shells. Just wanted to throw that out.
Here's a video by tested on using silicon molds to recreate 3D printed parts in resin. For full size nerf blasters, you would need a lot of materials, but we could "mass-produce" parts.
The drawback to this method is as far as I know, you need a solid piece, so shells would be a challenge.
Edit: typically, back pressure air tanks have attached blast buttons.
2. I would buy a blaster if there is monetary gain for me, or if it was a very well performing or looking blaster.
3. The maximum I would spend on a single blaster is probably $20-$30.
4.) 5, 4, 3, 0, 1, 3
5. Good 'ol 1.5" slugs.
7. Single shot
9. More airguns, better darts
10. Metal breech silent electric pump loser shooting darts with good range
Level of relevance? NonE. For real? You mean commas and semicolons. I just read it over and I see where some commas and semicolons should go, but no periods. The way sentences are structured makes them able to be longer.

Okay, so I downloaded the file and printed one of these turrets. It looks great, by the way. I like the styling with the open section allowing you to see the darts. What I had not realized until now is that there are only five barrels. This would be really awesome if it had seven, like some of the other printable cylinders.
Unless I misunderstood, you put PETG into holes made to be filled with it? If so, 7 holes seems like it would take more space than other 7 shot cylinders.
A full set of 180s in a college dorm room- so close range- will hurt like hell, especially a full 35 drum. Unless they are really resistant to pain or know you really well, you'll be lucky to not have campus police called on you.
The 180s are already in and the shell has already been cut. I don't even play competitively. Mostly just dick around with my roommates. I also have the 35 dart drum, so yeah. The goal for this build is to light up my roommates when they least expect it so the faster and harder they shoot the better. ;-)
Check out drain extension tubes at your local hardware store that has plumbing materials.There might be some that are close to the same dimensions as the polycarbonate tube Ice Nine used. The plastic ones are generally pretty cheap.
I'll definitely check those out. In the meantime, I have a barrel from a vulcan I want to test out. Its thin, strong, the right length, and fits in snugly. Only problem is the ridges on the inside of the barrel, which hopefully will be filled with grease and act as a self-lubricating feature. I plan to use a bath plug or something as a plunger head, and I have yet to find a suitable spring and plunger rod material.
For the priming handle, can it just be reinforced with epoxy putty or other material? I don't have tools to machine stuff for a homemade one. Also, I think i will just use pvc for the plunger tube, wood (really solid, i think its oak) for the plunger rod, and any spring I can find at ace or home depot. Also, no plastic shops around me unless home depot has that kind of thing.
Dont do it until you have the money for the right materials. Especially since the priming handle has to be aluminum or maybe polycarb to withstand the force. You won't find polycarb at ACE but call plastics shops in your area they usually have scrap pieces you can buy that are more than large enough for nerf applications.
Ditch the watergun tube. They tend to bend with movement of the seal and the plastic is super thin and soft. Your best bet would be to do something like Buffdaddy did, but with 1.25" pvc. Look around for seal parts.
I can replace the water gun with pvc, but the washers and the polycarb plunger tube will be hard. And by hard, I mean I can't because I don't have any money. I also am very opposed to cutting the ring launcher apart...
1: Plunger tube? I currently have the tube part of a squirt gun (the long tube kind, begs to be made into a plunger tube) taped into my tornado. I dod this because I didn't have anything else to use, and it fit right. I can cut the plunger head off of the other piece, it has a perfect seal.
2. Catch? I have access to most hand tools outside of a rasp and rat tail file, and yes aeromech, I saw your youtube video. That probably will work, but I need polycarb or pvc sheets, which I would have to buy online unless I can find it at ace.
3. Spring? Ace spring could work, other than that I don't have many options. Maybe buying cheap ones online?
Please help. I also have as raw materials: Tapes of various kinds, 1/2 inch pvc and cpvc, a local ace hardware, milk jugs(?) wood, metal bar, junk in general.
Sidenote: the ring launcher is completely functional outside of the shell. It just looks HIGHLY phallic.
It's more than just possible, it's easy and also been done before.
This is actually a Ten Shot Magnus I made over two years ago.
Pretty much exactly what has been said here is what I did to it, with one exception. Don't use "liquid epoxy", you need to use Methacrylate; MMA, Devcon, whatever brand just be sure it's active ingredient is Methacrylate. Leaps and bounds better than "liquid epoxy".
Just take your time, measure twice cut once.
Can that topload or is the magazine/clip/ *insert filter word here, where "filter word" is equal to cl!p@z!ne* removable?
I would like to do the same... I only check nerfhaven consistently, and occasionally check r/Nerf.
Wanted to append my "I don't see links" vote with a "I don't check enough pages to see links" comment. I look for unique stuff here and on reddit and sometimes a few other places, and since it's unique it's not usually a back-link to NH, it's content by the originator who is posting where they are. If that makes sense.
Your first question, yes, a small one, for your second question, what's wrong with a tank you pump up?
Hi again and thank you for the amount of feedback! I will answer this in one reply (and later than I intended), because I am still limited to 3 posts a day...
Will it shoot all 3 darts at once, in a spread?
Airtanks (with compressed air, anything more powerful than the pump-it-up Nerfs) are a different category, controlled under gun law and you need to be licensed to mod any of these. No way I could use something like an airsoft gun and Put Nerf Barrels onto it...
Will post an update if I get anything worked out
Im not very experienced with homemade's or xbows/tornado bows, However couldnt you just cut down a longshot and add a stock attachment then someone can 3d print a crossbow foregrip and stock witch can then be attached (the grip with epoxy or something similar).
You could, but that's not the point of this thread.
