I won't totally shut you guys out of the design. You just won't get dimensions and measurements from me. All that stuff takes a lot of time to figure out, but the proof that it's doable will be shown. A basic assembly will show how I put it together.Chazodude said:its a shame not to see your designs (plans?) but i see your point. (sorry for the pun!)
alright sounds good to me, i like what i see so far, cant wait to see the final product.23Magnum said:I won't totally shut you guys out of the design.

If you look at the blueprints, at the link I provided, of the OFT Swithblade, it shows how you can shoot the blade outward by pushing the button foward, then have it lock in place, and then push the button backward to fire it inward. I'll attach some system of string/cable to my pinky finger, rotate my hand one way to pull the switch, and rotate it the other way to push the switch back.Damien said:i have a question, do you want it to shoot out and shoot back in, because i would be simpler if you had it shoot out and lock, then you hold a button and push it back in.
Sorry bout that, didn't see you edited your post with an update till just now.Chazodude said:ok i have drawn a plan of my one, any tips about how to mechanise it magnum?
please pm me with your plans or tips!
Remind me, what's a Z-piece? Do you mean what they use in mechanical pens and pencils?Chazodude said:the locking mech will be done soon, it uses a Z peice.
I couldn't really make it out too well, but I think I know what you mean now.Chazodude said:
Interesting...though I don't really trust the video. They used a lot of special effects in that video, I mean it is Dreamworks after all. It could be real, but it still looked like he had to flick his wrist down to 'throw' the blade outward, but I wonder how he retracted it.Chazodude said:
