    Hung an empty paint can into my catch box, hit it a few times. Then I decided to fire a toilet brush into it.

    Went through the can, went through the cardboard, went through the rubber door mat and through the two layers of steel...

    Crazy power, I guess :)

    By the way, did you ever finish the Toilet Brush Gatling Gun?

    Sweet, sweet destrustction.

    After that RTS with one of these I for one will understand if you keep the automatic version on hold.
    I am curious if you figured out what its issues are.

    Looks like fun... put a blade on it and you've got yourself a flying guillotine, the perfect zombie dispatching device!

    Wow...who would've ever thought that the humble toilet brush would become such a lethal piece of equipment! !

    I love this! Ordinary stuff into deadly items.

    No... seems like the rotation makes the bands swinging wildly, causing the acceleration to be very erratic. Suicidal, really. A failure. I think a gatling version of this launcher would have to have fixed "barrels" with a rotating trigger.

    Alternatively, slotted barrels like my minigun arrow shooter.

    I see, and I think you made the right choice in abandoning that!

    Do you think it's the long acceleration length that causes that? This method (seemed to) work nicely on the gatling ball-shooter!

    The long acceleration, but also the shape of the "arrows" make the difference.

    Plus the power drill spins the thing very quickly.

    From the near-misses you related to us, I'm glad you walked away from that weapon. It would be a rather dubious honor to be the first person injured (or worse) by a toilet brush. And imagine trying to explain to the hospital how a toilet brush became stuck in your forehead...not good!
