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?


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,

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.

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?

Is This A Home.M Or A Mod?

10 May 2017 - 09:47 AM

So I have a really quick question. Does it still qualify as a mod if only the handle and airtank are used, but, say, theres a long arm sticking out of the blaster?

Ex: Say theres a strongarm with a piece of pvc sticking out the front with an airtank slapped on the front of the pipe, with all the orginal strongarm internals removed completely?

(Planning for the mod contest(hey where is the offical upload post for that?))

Edit: Grammar.
