Cool Trebuchet build

I haven’t see this one before. But apparently folks have been building them. Its a cool build to do with kids since it should be a simple build, and very interactive. https://www.instructables.com/id/Worlds-Simplest-and-Newest-Trebuchet-Walking-Arm-T/

Nice build for a Trebuchet

Nice build for a small Trebuchet you can make with kids. The author includes the SVG file you can use for laser cutting out the parts, or convert to a standard CNC. https://www.instructables.com/id/Laser-Cut-Trebuchet/

Hydrogen powered nerf gun

Interesting build, the authors took a nerf gun, added a hydrogen collector to it, and well…a rather explosive gun. Hydrogen Powered Nerf Blaster Is Dangerously Awesome

Simple clip reload build

I like this, dump the bullets on one end, sort and line them up, then push themĀ  in. Beats doing one at a time. https://www.instructables.com/id/DIY-Magazine-Speed-Loader-Magpacker/
