How to Make a pencil launching crossbow with junk

Make a crossbow that launches pencils clear across the room.
This was made of different things from around the house. He was trying to see if he could make a crossbow with only household junk.

This crossbow works very well and a few things are adjustable, the pens and the strength of the pull and the power of it.

Also it is really easy to do it, so easy one can do it with one hand. Yes, I broke my arm a third of the way into the project, so I made it as easy as possible to build with one arm.

Hope whoever builds one will enjoy. And don't abuse the information.

Interesting concept. What made me laugh is when you reviewed different pen's and their travel distance/penetration. Hahhaha

Thank you for saving me some time trying to build this contraption. Beware the DIY that has no results footage. They're doing everything in oragami and paper mache these days; these digital lovin', low down, dirty cotton pickin' scallywags.(Old school) Bastards!

yea this guys got his head on straight. hate the guns where you have to print out a pattern (papercraft)

so uninspired/lame

sweet

i like this alot very fun to shoot at stuff DO NOT AIM IT AT PEOPLE ANIMALS OR ANY BREAKABLE OBJECTS

next version should have a better lanching mechanism like a trigger

I would like to have seen the actual contraption in action

lol

difficile pour faire
hard to build
