Re: The Infinite Engines Dreamair moves from dream to reality

I am sure it is not intentional, it will just be a by-product, but the drums are larger than simple rollers, the spiral tracks on them are the length of the wishbone draw, plus inside there is the...

Re: The Infinite Engines Dreamair moves from dream to reality

It occurs to me that the “Dreamair” gun’s spinning axle and drums may act to stabilize the gun during the shot, rather like a gyro-stabilizer.

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

The key to the "Sea Archer" is the raised fence on the pulley that the band wraps against as the pulley rotates as that changes how the band pulls on the pulley in terms of offset and alignment to...

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

Looks like the Bandito guy has a "Sea Archer" and may have got the tooling that made them, as Aquacraft made the alloy tube spearguns that he now makes and the "Sea Archer" as well. Lionel Long...

Re: Tool to cut yourself out of kelp quickly?

Dive knives were originally hand made with timber or cork handles, you can see instructions on how to make one in "Dive" by Rick and Barbara Carrier, a book from the mid-fifties.

Re: DIY: MK2 Single band CF skinned 98cm band stretch gun

The bands, or the connecting cord between them are trapped under the muzzle plate? To replace bands does that plate come off? You have an insert in the end of the muzzle nose on the stock and I...

Re: DIY: How to cast PU handles for guns

Very good, plus no problems about it fitting your hand. As you split the mold to get the item out you could cross hatch the mold surface to produce ribs or a checker pattern on the grip.

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

There are always people who want to ban spearguns and in areas of Japan they have already done so, hence Hawaiian slings and other gadgets like these "bows" are the only underwater hunting tools left...

Re: Rollergun feedback: Petar Pan, Alemanni, Briante, Carbonia

That is OK, in fact it suited me right out of the box, and I did not have to change anything (you get two rear handle sections and a bunch of spacers and screws to push the rear of the handle back or...

Re: Rollergun feedback: Petar Pan, Alemanni, Briante, Carbonia

Maybe cut a template out of thick cardboard to show the dimensions you want for your handgrip and finger reach or you take a mold with some material and send it with your order. A little bit of...

Re: Rollergun feedback: Petar Pan, Alemanni, Briante, Carbonia

If you want to pay 2 grand for a gun then I think all the makers can accommodate you on that score. The Alemanni Travel guns seem a great idea and you can always have full length spears in a travel...

Re: Small rollerguns for close-up work

They can, but some people don't like mid-handle guns. I am prepared to use anything, and have done so, however there are plenty of niches in the market and certainly there have been many small...

Re: Rollergun feedback: Petar Pan, Alemanni, Briante, Carbonia

The band battery works through moving side pulleys, or pulleys in a block underneath the gun. Their operating stroke is half the wishbone draw as for every 2 inches of top deck travel the cable...

Re: Rollergun feedback: Petar Pan, Alemanni, Briante, Carbonia

Now that fatter body guns are more common gun carry bags are going to need fattening up. I use "gundoms" on some of my guns, but recently tried getting one on my "Urukay" and it is too fat to do the...

Their bags look OK and have both handles and shoulder straps.

I note that Alemanni offer a gun bag which should be on the shopping list.

Re: Rollergun feedback: Petar Pan, Alemanni, Briante, Carbonia

Yes, big guns are heavy, but sometimes willing helpers can carry your guns as they like to hold them, especially big kids. Each year hikes get longer and weight belts get heavier unless you are...

Re: Rollergun feedback: Petar Pan, Alemanni, Briante, Carbonia

That is pretty heavy, I just put my "Ultimate Double" on the scale with only the top spear and it weighs in at 99.8 ounces or 6.24 pounds and I always complain about carrying it. I must weigh one of...

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

Re: Slingshot Weapon with pulleys

Barnett had a "Fish Bazooka" some years ago that was band powered for shooting from the riverbank. A speargun/crossbow hybrid that seems to have since disappeared, but looked the part even though...
