I developed a new catch design that SHOULD allow someone to build a complete blaster from parts available from lowes or home depot.

I accidentally got the wrong endcaps so I need to change things before I do a complete build and post a list of parts.... but I wanna show off a little.

threaded rod, nuts, washers and nylon spacers.

When I get my new Flat endcaps I will finish the writeup.

It would take a whole millisecond to alter a plusbow catch to work like this.

Have you tried using rubber corks for plungers yet? I've had varying success with them.

That doesn't look safe at all to me. Unless I'm not understanding how it works, even a light smack would set it off. :)

*Edit after the below post* Ah, I think I figured out how it might work out, can't wait. :)

I have not posted pictures of the actual catch... I need flat endcaps.

Interesting catch idea. Sort of a reverse catch in a sense.

But wouldn't it be easier to just do a normal clothespin trigger? Or do they not have clothespins at Lowes (never been there, I use ace)?
