This is what happens when you put recycling in the trash bin.
Deviant Artist Midnight Angel put together an arm blade stylized after the ones used in the Assassin's Creed video game series. Using a drawer opening mechanism, a spring for a screen door, and a throwing knife, the weapon works surprisingly smoothly. The full instructions are on Angel's page, and you can see it in action below.
A few notes:
Clearly, we can add vinyl records to the list of materials wood glue is used for.
I've never found a spray glue that doesn't wear off in a matter of days.
Just like this chart, I absolutely swear by the power of hot glue. I recently used it as the only adhesive on my Halloween costume and it held together superbly.
I was able to build this lamp for under $20 (US) The books cost $6, The Switch and fixture cost $7.50, and a few misc. items that was another $4.
Another successful book lamp from a dedicated user! That particular light bulb looks brilliant, a great addition to the build. If you missed the first one, here's what user Richard C made last week. Well done guys, let's keep them coming!
