Small Railgun


Recommended Posts

I found directions for making a small railgun online and I'm just wondering if this is something a teenager with no experience with making this kind of thing could make and not get hurt. It's pretty cheap and the directions say it's relativly easy to make.

Wow, I haven't been here in a long time.


Anyways, the link in question is most likely http://www.instructables.com/id/EPJ15FCF1V9XH5E/


That is the link to a coil/rail gun capacitor bank.


This particular bank in question is similar to the one I'm making. I've got 22 330v capacitors lined up and am charging off of the camera circuit using a dc converter power supply so I don't have to worry about batteries.


If this is you're first time with electronics I wouldn't start with this.


Do something easier like the automatic Bawls lamp.



Gives you a feel for circuits and the like.
