Rubberband Gun (4 shot semi-auto)

Project By: RDPowell2


Created from a scrollsaw project. In VCarve you will cut 3 12x12 sheets of 1/8 baltic birch plywood to produce all the parts. Use the assembly instructions from the PDF to complete the assembly. It is quiet involved making this gun. I have ijncluded the VCarve file as well as gcode files for those that do not have Vectric products. There is not enough room on the sheets for clamps, I used the painters tape and superglue method and it works quite well.

  1. I have included the original PDF for the scrollsaw version of the rubberband gun. You will need to assemble the gun using the instructions in this PDF.

  2. The VCarve file consists of all the layout of 3 sheets of parts corresponding to page numbers in the PDF. The toolpaths are for cutting the parts using a 1/8" Endmill and a Vcarve path for each page to label the part numbers on the sheet.

  3. I have included gcode for cutting each of the 3 12x12 1/8" baltic birch plywood pieces. I have not included gcode to do the part numbers, these only cut the parts that can be compared with the corresponding part number in the PDF. If you do not have VCarve or Aspire you can simply run these gcode files to cut the parts.

  4. I secured my plywood to the spoil board with the painters tape and super glue method.

  5. I used 1/8" brass rod, purchased at Lowes, cut to the appropriate length where it calls for the dowel rods. The holes that are cut in the parts fit exactly when using the rod.

I'm having issues trying to download files. Checking to see if it works for anyone else. Thanks cool project

I find no PDF in the files. There are only 2 Vectric files in the folder.
