#364148 Nerf Collections -hobbydb

Posted by Silly on 27 August 2019 - 11:40 AM in General Nerf

The History of Nerf Modding/Nerf Archive could use a few collection photos. It isn't as much a place to show it off as much as a place to catalog each blaster.

Thank you!




#363851 The History of Nerf Modding archival project

Posted by Silly on 04 May 2019 - 08:26 PM in General Nerf

Hello!

I am Silly, and I am one of the staff on the History of Nerf Modding team. 

We are building an archive (initially on discord, then uploading to Google drive periodically, with a website possibly coming in the future), and then turning portions of that into in-depth history and information videos.

This is inclusive of tracking major games, game types, and other modding adjacent activities of the community. 

We are especially looking for long time Nerfers who were participating in the Nerf scene any time from 1989 to 2012, which is why I am posing here on Nerf Haven. Any small thing will help to paint a larger picture, so even if you have a faint memory, please write it down and send it to us!

We will have questions and need for photos and videos over the next few months, so if you want to be a contact we can reach out to, let me know in a reply to this post, or by telling us on our Discord.

Speaking of Discord, here is a link to our Discord. https://discord.gg/zt5uBsR Join in, if you’d like!

Thank you for reading and helping out!




#363187 Safe way to compressor mod a Titan?

Posted by Silly on 11 July 2018 - 03:36 PM in Modifications

On my compressor powered Titan tanks, I do a few very important things.

  1. Reinforce the tank! Titan tanks can hold higher amounts of pressure than many other, cheaper/smaller tanks, but it does have it's limits when compressored. I follow this guide, and then cover in duct tape for shrapnel control if they still blow.
  2. I also add check valves to my Titans because of the reinforcements I do. This is not needed for compressor Titans, but it is helpful due to air line popping caused by high pressure air tanks. You can alternatively use very thick air tubing.
  3. Do the other obvious things. Plug the stock Titan tank's pressure gauge output (unless needed for some reason), don't use cracked tanks, etc. Common sense is there for a reason.

If you do these 3 things, you will probably be better off than just ramming that compressor up a Titan.

 

Edit: A word.

#362676 A couple Hardly Ideal Rayven Improvements

Posted by Silly on 08 March 2018 - 03:25 PM in Modifications

This is indeed correct.



#362667 A couple Hardly Ideal Rayven Improvements

Posted by Silly on 07 March 2018 - 08:23 AM in Modifications

Could you by any chance provide a link to that battery pack online? I have an air compressor that also takes 12V, but I dont have a big enough battery tray.



#362542 (WIP / DESIGN) Homemade SplitFire.

Posted by Silly on 14 February 2018 - 09:39 AM in Homemades

Guru Mk4: The Everymans Blaster



#362537 (WIP / DESIGN) Homemade SplitFire.

Posted by Silly on 13 February 2018 - 09:15 AM in Homemades

Well now that we have this SplitFire in the works, and a working 3D printed Crossbow replica, how long until we can make 3D printed guru style blasters?

Merging both blasters into one build shouldn't be too hard with a bar on the top of the SplitFire, and a corresponding groove on the bottom of the crossbow grip. Screws would go in through the side of the CB grip, through the bar, and into the other side of the crossbow handle. Of course, both blasters existing 3D models would need to be modified, but that is easy enough.

If done this way, other things could use the same bar style. We could 3D print correct bar sizes, then epoxy them to whatever we want (Ex. Jolt, Nite Finder, etc.)



#361753 Titan-Turian Sleeper

Posted by Silly on 11 October 2017 - 04:38 PM in Modifications

Yep- copycat. Actually, two titan tanks would be an interesting design, since linking them through the open ports at the back of the tank wont work- not enough flow. how were you planning on doing that? One tank barely fits in the shell width wise, and it take up the entire center section. or is your pump/hand pump outside the shell?

Im not keeping the clip-system. Instead im  using 2 breaches. I have 2 titan tanks and an air compressor. I have done a lot to the design since the picture, including starting the process of integrating the (pictured) stryfe handle into the titan, replacing the stock handle. This is being done so I can use the air compressor easily by just pressing down the rev button from the stryfe.

#361736 Titan-Turian Sleeper

Posted by Silly on 10 October 2017 - 10:13 AM in Modifications

Yep, you're copying him. Can't have two identical builds in the wild, so you've got to be stopped.

Will I be executed publicly on a NH livestream, with captain slug and you sipping my blood from wine glasses?




#361734 Titan-Turian Sleeper

Posted by Silly on 10 October 2017 - 09:27 AM in Modifications

Dang it! I have a build in process with the exact same setup but with 2 titan tanks. Now im worried that I will look like im copying you!




#361679 What would you people consider the rarest blasters or attachments?

Posted by Silly on 28 September 2017 - 01:35 PM in General Nerf

Theirs a difference between rare and valuable. For rare - i'm more familiar with blasters in terms of vintage.
 
Zap snaps are stupid rare - since they were recalled from store shelves due to safety hazards. My younger self got some of those for my birthday - but they didn't survive my childhood.
I've only seen 2 cycletrons in my life, only one nerf stinger and I also own a single shot air max 1 blaster (shot the little air planes) - that not even nerf could identify or even name ( emailed them and stumped the entire corporation). The hydro-blastzooka's are few and far between as well.

Also, don't forget the noobapotamous. That thing is one-of-a-kind.
In all seriousness, in my opinion the nerf prototypes are the rarest "nerf blasters". There is probably only one pre production run with THAT EXACT paint job and THAT EXACT little tweak to the barrel.



#361628 Stampede drill motor Questions

Posted by Silly on 20 September 2017 - 10:50 AM in Modifications

Hello again NH,

Recently, I found a nice old drill in goodwill without a handle, so I bought it for the motor. It is a motor from a craftsman 12v drill. My thoughts immediately went to cramming the fudger into a stampede. Sure, it would look like the stampede had a tumor, but it would fire faster/harder then the normal motor.

So I did some research to find specs on the motor. I couldn't find the drill online, the motor specs, or any information other then a sold out battery supposedly for the drill on sears.com. So.

I looked at stampede replacement motors. I found this thread/post on the Nerf sub Reddit ( https://www.reddit.c...KUN&sh=0d4c2375) and I have in the past made a NH topic on stampede replacement motors.

But I found no documentation of anyone using a drill motor in a stampede. So that's what I'm asking about here. Does anyone know or suspect any major problems (other then reinforcement and gearbox stuff) with this project? Would a 12v drill motor be able to meet the stampede's requirements for function?

Thanks,
Silly

Edit: This post will also be posted on Reddit for more people to be able to answer.

#361586 Rapidstrike Modding Help (Complete Noob)

Posted by Silly on 14 September 2017 - 12:09 PM in Modifications



In the Make Test Battle Ultimate Rapidstrike video ( above ) they show you how to make a decent rapidstrike. The parts that they used are in the description of their video.
People like you starting out usually start with less powerful flywheelers as their first blasters, but as you said, you already have experience with electronics and such, so I hope that the video is at your level of difficulty.

Good luck!



#361542 ITT: Post your favorite Vintage blasters

Posted by Silly on 08 September 2017 - 11:16 AM in General Nerf

All of the pre-revamp supermaxx line ties as best/favorite vintage blaster for me. The best blasters of that line in my opinion were the Supermaxx 500, the 1000, and the 3000. If I could have (Another) of any of those 3, I would pick the supermaxx 1000 because I really want to make one for HVZ and NIC games.



#361390 Stampede Repairs

Posted by Silly on 23 August 2017 - 06:39 PM in General Nerf

Either your problem is you have a stripped gear, or the motor is broken for some unknown reason. 

First thing you should do is open the gearbox and see if ANY of the gears have missing teeth. If they are, then you need replacement gears, not a new motor. 

If the gears are all ok, and you are SURE that its the motor, then airsoft pusher motors are what I see people using sometimes. They will cost you 39-70 USD though.

True, but captain Xavier and someone else I can't remember have made titan attachments for vortex, so it may be possible.



#361365 Caliburn Mega XL

Posted by Silly on 21 August 2017 - 12:09 PM in Homemades

/u/PianoManDaniel is working on that.

Oh I already did most of that. All the cuts are done, but I'm all out of titan tanks.

Well now at least I don't have to keep thinking about how to make one that shoots Megas. Been designing since around xmas.

Well, your build is about to be... let's say... doubled.

Less increase then if you completely removed the ar.



#361207 How large are your arsenals?

Posted by Silly on 06 August 2017 - 07:36 AM in General Nerf

 
I just don't have space to store 500 blasters.


I have the attic and the geust bedroom of the house filled with 30 gallon bins filled with nerf. It's a hard thing to manage, but I can try.



#361199 How large are your arsenals?

Posted by Silly on 05 August 2017 - 11:49 AM in General Nerf

Im sad that I'm the only 500 person. I used to buy every cheap large nerf lot on eBay.



#361191 Slimeball Gobzooka

I just found one at my local target for 25 dollars. Can't wait to mod it!



#361104 Sling Fire DX400

Posted by Silly on 27 July 2017 - 07:55 AM in General Nerf

I would dare a guess that you can get 30 bucks or so from each new in box one.

Bump



#361060 Replacement stampede motor?

Posted by Silly on 21 July 2017 - 09:47 AM in Modifications

The reason I need a replacement stampede motor is i was using a stampede motor for a different project, but I kinda lost it. Tore my place apart looking for it. So I need a new one preferably with more torque.



#361058 Replacement stampede motor?

Posted by Silly on 21 July 2017 - 08:45 AM in Modifications

So, I'm not dead!

Anyway... I looked up replacement stampede motors, and all that showed up was a 2013 thread recommending that you use airsoft high torque motors (that cost about as much as a stampede)

So since it's been 4 or so years now, I was wondering if anyone knows of any cheaper replacement stampede motors?
( I mean aftermarket motors, not a motor from another stampede.)

Thanks in advance,
Silly.

Lasagna, its because it's comfortable, its cool as shit, and it has a nice color scheme.



#360463 Caliburn: Mag-fed Pump-action Springer

Posted by Silly on 09 June 2017 - 12:47 PM in Homemades

Glad to see that your goal of machined, printed, and cast options being possible has been completed. Is this it for the project, or should we expect to see even more progress?

Also, quick question, how long is the prime on this beast? I want to compare it to my current project.



#360369 Nerf Thrifting Tips

Posted by Silly on 05 June 2017 - 08:33 AM in General Nerf

I use ebay and look up nerf lots and sort for cheapest first. Usually they are selling several 7 to 90 dollar items for around 30 to 90+ dollars. Ive gotten 2 stampedes and a rapidstrike for only 50 bucks from one lot.



#360281 Got anything longer? (Springs)

Posted by Silly on 02 June 2017 - 12:44 PM in Modifications

I think i will go with the k44. I need about 3 full feet of draw for this monster, so that one should be good.

#360207 Broken Rough cut

Posted by Silly on 30 May 2017 - 11:33 AM in General Nerf

Don't waste a good shell! That is basically the only good part of the rough cut, other then the smart AR.
