This thing is excellent for shooting the nut and bolts designed by Aubenc at unsuspecting coworkers. Could re-engineer for a little bit more distance and power. Any thoughts?

Nice model. Could you post the updated foot joint for 3/8 dowel please?

It also doubles as a filament spool holder. :-)

I'm pro-office warfare on general principle.

Excellent, me too. Perhaps we can collaborate on some weapons of mass office destruction.
