If you've spent any time in a cubicle, you know that there are times when you might need to fashion some kind of weapon out of office supplies. Maybe you're waging war on your cubicle neighbor, or simply defending your domain from the devious IT department; whatever your office turmoil, Office Weapons has got you covered. This collection of weaponry are made from easy to find supplies, and can be found in many offices. And, in the spirit of DIY, you can easily substitute some materials for other items you may have on hand instead of the ones listed. Better yet, use the ones here as inspiration and make your own bigger, better version!
Inside, you'll find grappling hooks, trebuchets, darts and more - all made out of office supplies! We've even included some fun non-warfare projects at the end to keep you entertained in times of peace.
All the projects in this book are from Instructables.com. Instructables is the most popular project-sharing community on the Internet, and part of the Autodesk family of creative communities. Since August 2005, Instructables has provided easy publishing tools to enable passionate, creative people to share their most innovative projects and ideas.
January 6, 2013 - now with more projects!
I don't blame them for wanting to be in my garage, it is pretty awesome in there, but it is a problem; they chew on electrical wires, poop, and there is also no food sources in the garage. So they had to go.
I can borrow a commercial metal animal trap, but the issue is that I encountered right away was that the pressure plate in one of those requires a bit more force then a small squirrel. So I was quickly able to catch mommy squirrel, but none of her children. This is bad, now I have a bunch of baby squirrels in my garage, no food, and no way for them to get out.
I needed an animal trap that could be triggered by the minuscule weight of a baby squirrel, and hold them securely until I can release them.
The cheapest of all BLGs on the market today (and readily available) is the GoPro BLG and Controller (Martinez v1) from RcTimer. Unfortunately that gimbal comes zero, zilch, nada instructions. Also there were some incorrectly machined parts. Hence building it can be quite a challenge. This Instrucable is meant to fill this gap. Also it might give you enough pointers to design and build your own gimbal from scratch.
