Improved Ratchet Wheel for gtcdman27's Rubber Band Gun by alan_one Dec 28, 2012

Description

I had some trouble getting the original ratchet wheel design from gtcdman27's gun to work, so I designed a different one. This works well for me.

Yeah the mechanism is a bit finicky... I also added a rubber band to mine to work as a return spring for the trigger.
I tried it out and I can't get it to work with my gun. I'm thinking it may be because I had some curling while printing the handle that may have changed the geometry and that is what is making it not work.
Sweet! I'm going to try this with my derivative because I've been having trouble loading the rubber bands. I'll let you know if it works better.
