I made this fun rubber band gun in a weekend and made a video of the build along with an instructable (http://www.instructables.com/id/Gatling-Rubber-Band-Machine-Gun-Easy-Weekend-Proje/) with step by step instructions and free printable templates so others could make this fun project too. I had a fun time making this project, and my kids have a fun time playing with it (ok, so do I).
I made a few other guns before this one, testing out different things before I finally landed on this design. Some of my other guns used metal hardware for the hand crank (bearings and screw rods etc…), but I really wanted to get it made completely out of wood and still have a smooth hand crank, and this design fits the bill nicely.
I hope other have as much fun making this as I did.
