Re: laminating / stock building.(LOG)

Not sure where wood glue fits into that, all i know is that one takes a while because it requires interaction with the molecules that make it hard, i did say i was using wood glue right?

also, bravatoom, you are one master stock builder.

Re: laminating / stock building.(LOG)

I was trying not to double post, sorry for the delay. the next thing i like to do after drafting is to create a pattern that is good to lay out on the wood. I like a paper one because i can cut through the paper, so i can leave an edge away from the line that is 1/4" to 3/8" from the pencil lines. T...

Re: 3D printing darts

For the smaller .177 darts a little sand paper and maybe a cotton wad would help.

Re: Access to lathe...what should I make?

why not spring load the trigger? it may make it a little larger and more complicated, but it would push the valve open pretty fast helping achieve greater accuracy. also i agree with gippeto, make some bullet molds while you can. Hot glue bullets seem to be popular(also weighting the tip is possible...

Re: Coaxial Piston Cannon

I think you created a very expensive air compressor.

I just was going in order and was pressed for time. back on topic: design your stock AROUND YOUR *GUN! if you design your stock first, your gun becomes much harder and time consuming. Also borrowing ideas from other guns will help you create yo...

Re: laminating / stock building.(LOG)

image.jpg Here cammy I fixed it, it is a log now. I've also built a couple of stocks before for airsoft guns, but I broke them so I threw them away. Here is the stock I'm making with the damp paper towel on the grain to check it, sorry I couldn't really do that while it was in the vice when I start...

Re: I do not want to get blown up.

I have bad teachers for that part, usually they don't even know the homework they are gonna give. And usually chores around the house take time.

I vote exploding shells, like rounds that when they contact something they create a spray of bbs. Pneumatically

Re: So I suck at casting my line.....

Well, if you think about it, a large piston valve launcher is an option, bit you would probably have to Cary either a compressor or an air source (co2 cartridge or a container profiled with air, or a container connected to a compressor, effectively making a low volume compressor.)

laminating / stock building.(LOG)

I started building a stock, because I want to be a gunsmith when I get older. I figured showing how to make the stock would be useful for people on here because airguns sometimes need a good stock.( Im sorry I do not have pictures of the laminating of the stock, I forgot at that time.) To start, you...

Re: I do not want to get blown up.

Oh, my brain died on me there, sorry. I'll ask for it when I get done with my .22 I got, because for some darn reason I can get guns easier than air gun stuff, though I did get a fire extinguisher. Soon gippeto, soon. I'm gonna play with this qev first. I'll take you up on that offer soon, when I ha...
