    In about a week, a camera team from the UK will visit me in order to shoot some footage for the Discovery Channel International.<br><br>They love the circular saw blade shooter, and I agreed that I will try to enhance it for them - so they can show stuff that has never been seen before.<br><br>The obvious way to enhace this humongous and next-to-useless thing<br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/JrHFxscunOA" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br>is to get rid of the wooden dowel.<br><br>But how to do that? Well, I think a whole new approach is required.<br><br>My new concept follows the principle of simple one-shot clay pigeon throwers. Basically a spring loaded lever that swings out, shooting the saw blade like the clay pigeon thrower shoots clay pigeons.<br><br><embed pluginspage="http://www.macromedia.com/go/getflashplayer" src="http://www.youtube.com/v/0gSUtZRh80Q" width="425" height="350" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" wmode="transparent" quality="high" scale="exactfit"></embed><br><br>Of course I want to make a "rifle" that can be shot from the shoulder. <br><br>I already did some tests, with two boards and a bit of rubber. It works! I have ordered some really strong springs and did some sketches. Will put the weapon together over the long weekend (Tuesday is a holiday, and I have a day off on Monday).
