Making a few ray guns, this is the first i'll work on.
(other needs more parts, like a barrel)
I found this pneumatic screwdriver at a thrift shop for $5 a few days ago.
It really caught my eye, it looked like it's make a great side arm.
It took me a while to get all the guts out since they were press fitted, for one piece I actually needed my dremmel, I think they were put together by heating the outside piece and cooling the inner... there was a small wall of tempered steel I had to chew through :\
Anyway, planning on using all this space to good use. A few led's fading from blue to green put into the exhaust ports, driven by a 555 circuit.
On off switch where the forward reverse was in the back.
...and a 50mw 532nm laserout the business end.
I may have to drill out the handle for batteries.
Only one problem though, I can't figure out how to get to the trigger
I have no idea how they even put it in the darn thing let alone how to get it out. eh, have to drill holes anyway to access it...
let me know what you think, and yes, it will take a lot of electrical insulation
