The History of Nerf Modding archival project

04 May 2019 - 08:26 PM

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!


Stampede drill motor Questions

20 September 2017 - 10:50 AM

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.

Replacement stampede motor?

21 July 2017 - 08:45 AM

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.

Pull Style Converter For Blast Buttons.

26 May 2017 - 08:29 AM

So, i have been thinking about this for a bit now: can we make a way for the xbz to be fired on a pulling motion, not a push of the button. I came up with this, but havent made it yet.

Attached File  IMG_3991.PNG   118.08KB   63 downloads

Blue = xbz
Black = blast button
Orange = body of mechanism
Green = tension spring (V.Small)

There is a sliding wedge with a return spring on one end. You would pull on the non spring side with a piece of wire attached to a trigger, which would slide the wedge over the blast button, firing the xbz. One problem: i dont have materials to test this, so it would be greatly appreciated if someone could do a prototype of this for me. I just need some quick input as to if the design works as it should in reality. Thanks!

Edit: please forgive my magnificent MS paint skills.

Got anything longer? (Springs)

24 May 2017 - 02:29 PM

So for one of my entries in the 2017 mod contest i need a spring longer and not too much wider or skinnier then a [k26], with just as much power behind it. I dont think i would be able to spring-merge two pieces of [k26] together, as i dont have acess to high strength adhesives or welding.

So, anyone know of any long [k26]-like springs available?
