Gauss Gun
Heya all, I've decided to make a Gauss gun. It's relatively simple, and the mechanics of it are also fairly simple.

What I'll need are:
  • Neodymium magnets
  • Steel Ball Bearings
  • A plastic channel

Basically, this video might explain it. If not, Google it

Deifintion: Gauss guns use solenoids to propel a ferrous projectile

This should be my final product Big Grin

RE: Gauss Gun
il warn you now, ive used neodymium magnets and they are absolute bitches cause they cause so much damage to everything XD

RE: Gauss Gun
I had a few lying around, dunno where they went.

I would rubber coat the balls, but that'll take away most of the kinetic energy on impact and therefore they won't travel. I guess I'll take the risk of exploding bearings

RE: Gauss Gun
you have to remember that its not going to shift the force that much you lose 30% of the initial acceleration

RE: Gauss Gun
And what happens if we lose more due to the rubber coat?

Exactly.

RE: Gauss Gun
all im saying is you are not going to get particularly interesting results unless you have big magnets and big balls

RE: Gauss Gun
Big balls. Eheheheheheheheh.


Nah, I'm using a big supply like in the double Gaussian gun

RE: Gauss Gun
Looks like a nice project and like it could do some damage. :thumbs

RE: Gauss Gun
If I can get hold of some Neodymium magnets I'll make a rapid fire version Smile
