    Rapid-Fire Nickel Launcher

    It's not round, so I guess it belongs in the Flatwork forum?

    If the photos don't make things obvious enough, try watching the
    [12-minute YouTube video]. (My first YouTube video ever! )













    Finally, here is a better (although blurry) shot of the "maple insert". You can't really discern its "T shape" in the video, so all the talk about the fitting I had to do probably doesn't make much sense....

    Ha! That looks like it'd be fun. I'm cheap, though...I'd have made a penny launcher instead.

    I can see all sorts of potential variations. A dog cookie launcher, a Ritz cracker launcher, M&Ms, Pez, malted milk balls...you could put your eye out with all sorts of things.

    Hmmm, A biscuit ballista... I think I know a couple of dogs that might enjoy that....
