another dart

Unread postAuthor: Deko » Sat Dec 09, 2006 12:19 pm

i made another dart that is the same principle of my other one( http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=4995& ) but is a little easier to make. My other one was some times hard to get the tail just right and sometimes took multiple tries, and when you tried to get the point through the eraser it would sometimes get off center and crooked, so i made this one.

heres how it was made:
1. get a nail and wrap in paper so it will fit snuggly into a drinking straw.
2. dont put it all the way into the straw, put it abouth 3/4 of the way in and the secure by putting glue on both sides, i used CA glue on mine wich is about the same if not stonger than super glue
3. get a small bundle of yarn and wrap some taper aound the tip of it so it stays together, you want it to fit snuglly into the other end of the straw
4. secure the yarn with glue or just some tape doesnt really matter as long as it wont fall out.

and then you done

the pics are to big, there 321kb, and last time i posted pics i could change that with the strech/skew on paint but something happened to my paint and cant do that so if someone can tell me how to make under 150kb ill post pics

Hyperdermic needles make quite good darts. You can trim the plastic to suit your (small) barrel or blowpipe. They even come with safety caps so you dont jag yourself accidently. They are a bit light but they do fly quite straight. I don't know how big they make them but I imagine some of the vetinary ones are quite big.
