    Hello I'm iknowmy3tables, I used to spend a lot of time on the spudfiles.com forums but I'm no longer an active member. Air cannons remain my specialty but I have made a few crossbow devises in the past, but I'm still not familiar with using high quality rubber and trigger mechanism.

    here are some things I have done:
    bolt action cartridge ejecting air rifle

    Pneumatic powered AT4 launcher

    cheapest simplest soda bottle rocket

    That's a pretty cool air cannon. I really don't need to watch stuff like that - I have enough projects already in the works ;) Welcome to the forum. You will find some folks on here that already have some good experience with the bands and triggers you're looking for - particularly Joerg - I assume you've already checked out his YouTube videos? Some good inspiration there.

    Hello and welcome! I looked through the links that you shared of some of your air cannons, and your work is very impressive! I have one air cannon nearly complete in my garage (even though they are not legal here...:D) it needs only a bit of wiring to be fully functional.
    Now that I've wandered way off-topic...I hope you enjoy this new form of crafting and building weapons too. Always feel free to ask questions, very friendly group of folks here.

    Hi IKM3T,
    Welcome to the forum.
    I just checked out your spudzz. They are looking great and very sophisticated. Cool things!!
    I forgot that i subscribed to spudfiles.com some time ago after making my first( and only one) potato cannon.

    Welcome 3tables

    I enjoyed the video. I'm here learning everything i can about rubber powered launchers, too.
    A really simple over-the-top style gun can be made very quickly without a release mechanism. I made one out of an old 2X2 of fence redwood, but any kind of stick will work. Bill Hays shoots some ridiculously small targets with one on a YT vid you can find at [ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rbfNyMNi20U[/ame]

    I learned a lot about pouches and bands from experimenting with it on different ammo types.
    It keeps your hands rearward of the danger, which was a big plus for me starting out.

    Hope you enjoy your time here.

    +1 for the applesauce vid

    You have a good screen presence, very natural. The character you play had me cracking up the whole time.

    Putting the word weaponized in front of any other words always gets my attention.:D

    3tables, do you think you could weaponize cotton/q-tips? I think you could do it!
