Glue/Solvent weld removal?

01 February 2014 - 05:08 PM

Hey guys, so I got a ERTL rapid fire shotgun in the mail today, and I've been working on ForsakenAngel24's "doomsayer" mod guide (http://nerfhaven.com...?showtopic=9845) . I have it all taken apart and understood, except the front panel to the turret came off not attached to one half of the clear yellow barrels. So now I have both layers of the barrels stuck together, and I believe they are glued or solvent welded together, does anyone know how to get them apart? I did some quick searching but I can't find an answer to this. (Well google and nerfhaven's search can't find an answer. :P)

Rough cut catching issues.

03 January 2014 - 12:45 PM

Hey guys, so I cut down my rough cut yesterday for making into a masterkey, and after finishing I went to test it, and now one of the plungers won't stay in its catches position. I'm worried I cut too much off of it. Do the plunger rods press against the top of the shell in the fully cocked position? Because that is the part I cut off, and I'm worried I just ruined my rough cut..

Edit: Oh, forgot to mention, it's completely stock except for the cuts in it, though with my first cut I didn't clean the shell before putting the internals back in it, so the mechanism is rather filled with shreds of the shell, I'm not sure if that was relevant, just wanted to make sure you guys know everything.

Any nerfers in or around Cleveland OH?

27 December 2013 - 10:35 PM

Hey guys, just wondering if there are any of you around Cleveland, I know there are quite a bit of you around OSU in Columbus, but I'd like to meet some nerfers around me to hang out with, mod, trade, plan wars with, ect.

BenFett's first serious mod!

I apologize for this being in the wrong place, now that I have actually looked around and payed attention to it, this really shouldn't be here, I'll re-post this in the modification and picture thread tomorrow, or as soon as this is deleted or locked to prevent double posting, sorry again guys, should've looked around a bit before i just blindly posted.

Hey guys, I've just recently gotten back into nerf guns, mainly into the modding and mechanical side of it, theres just something I love about tinkering with blasters! I picked up a FireStrike a few days ago, and for those few days I was debating whether or not i wanted to minimize it and remove the laser/dart holder. Sadly, but also gladly, upon taking it apart the second time the laser died on me. The minimization and the modding was definitely a great project for my first, and a pretty good challenge. Anyways, I'll show off a few pictures of the finished product.

This last picture is of the minimization, I covered the holes made by cutting out the laser and ammo holder with small pieces of a plastic called styrene. Styrene is a nice type of plastic you can buy in small sheets at hobby shops, its usually used for model making and stuff like that.

I used a base coat of black vinyl dye, with "Model Master" classic white hand paint for the details. I'm usually rather terrible with hand painting, but I found these miracle workers called "Microbrushes", they look basically like a birthday candle, and the tip of them is a puffed up ball of fibres. It captures a drop of paint and you just run it along the surface of whatever you are painting, and it covers it perfectly, i highly recommend them to anyone who is as bad as i am at hand painting, haha.

Here is a link to the product page of the microbrushes: http://microbrush.co...s.asp?categID=8

Edit: Oh, sorry, didn't realize I should've posted it in the modification and picture thread, figured that was just for people who wanted to post pictures, instead of fully writing a post about it, my apologies.

Questions about replacement motors.

15 November 2013 - 11:34 AM

Hey guys, so for Christmas I'm trying to get myself a stryfe so I can start to learn modding for the flywheel blasters, and I'd like to experiment with putting a replacement motor in it. I have looked at nearly all the mod tutorials that i can find, and many recommend the "Pro 180" motors that coop tends to use, but I've also seen a thread on here about the "RM2". I was very interested in the "RM2"s, due to the price difference, but I saw someone post in the comments of one of coop's videos asking how well they work, and he said that he believes they don't perform as well as even the stock motors. I would really appreciate some clarification if you guys don't mind, and I apologize if this has been asked, or is posted somewhere already, I just could not find a comparison of both the motors. Thank you in advance guys.

Edit: (Because I'm out of daily posts)
Thanks for all the help guys, I appreciate it, if anyone has any more tips to do with the stryfe I'd love to hear them!
