Re: BTAS grappling hook gun...DONE! pg 4 pic intensive


Well Brin (and others), hope you enjoy more pics. It's basically ALL pics, so dialup people will hate me, sorry but for now just getting pics up, I'll redo the pages to be faster for dialup once it's done.

]BTAS grap gun page 4

got the right handle piece mold done, that's 1/3 of the whole gun. Actually have some clear casting epoxy in it now. I'm using that so I can make a clear version for myself to display at conventions.

Re: BTAS grappling hook gun...DONE! pg 4 pic intensive


I'm really loving this project Tom thanks for the updates, I've gotta get me one of these babies!

Anyway I saw something on the new last night which got me thinking…How about converting the grappling gun into a taser gun. The housing for the grappling hook could house multiple taser cartridges. On the news the footage showed them just snapping a small square cartridge to the front on the gun. I was thinking if they’re small enough maybe you could install four of them in the housing and rig it up to shoot them in sequence. Once done just remove the housing and snap on a new cartridge with four more and you’re ready to go.

Really?

"we the people" were allowed to own them last time I looked at some catalog. I don't see why this would be any different. The design would lend itself rather well, just make the barrel snap on and off instead of screwing together.

I opened up the mold and besides some small airbubbles in the casting it's really pretty. I'll have to heat the epoxy a little, supposed to be self degassing but it was cold. Can't wait to get the thing done so I can shut up about it. Going to prep and do both of the remaining parts together so its done soon. I'll get pics.

Re: BTAS grappling hook gun...DONE! pg 4 pic intensive


ok all you home-brewers and molders. This barrel is bugging me, I'm sure I'm making this too complicated, but maybe it's the fumes from the fiberglass...

does this look like the easiest way to mold the barrel, I need another opinion before I waste more time and materials. I really want to get this thing done ASAP and this is the last piece I have to mold, been saving it for last since I didn't have a good game plan.


sorry about the size of it]barrel mold plan

Anyone catching anything wrong there? I'm not, I don't think. Any easier way besides doing a one piece mold and cutting it?

since I'm here, more pics of the mold here]page 5


really want to get this done this weekend before I get sidetracked again with something else that pays.

Re: BTAS grappling hook gun...DONE! pg 4 pic intensive


Hey Tom, with such a wonderfully innovative project -- and if done ASAP -- I think it's practically inevitable this will be the experimental prototype of more versions to come. I've so far had three BK belt models, and there could still be more. If you want to finish it fast, my suggestion is go ahead with what now feels right. There will be time in the future to re-think/redesign/re-fashion, and that's par for the process. Remember the best Spitfire was Model 9 (out of 14)?

Thanks Zane. After this --Log in or sign up to see linked image content--
I'm REALLY bummed out. Somehow the damn silicone managed to break the vacuum and seep past the edge of the master onto the first pour of silicone and bond to it. It's mostly on the back of the handle, but just totally ticked off about this right now.

Anyway, 2/3 of the way done now with this half of the handle wrapped up I can move onto the barrel.

Have to go to court tomorrow for a parking ticket my car got when it was in the shop tomorrow and fight "the man" and now this happens. emoticon :whack :cussing :whack :cussing

I think I'll just make a "cover plate" like a textured grip sleeve to cover this up until I feel like remolding this piece. Unless of course someone has an idea to cleanly remove that silicone.
