Working Pencil Shooting Bow by Yoneo Jan 31, 2013

Description

*UPDATE - I have updated the Pencil Bow to V2. It has a larger cap/hole so the pencils will actually fit. the old version worked but it required the user to "stretch" the hole so pencils would smoothly fire.

This bow will shoot any pencils with a circumference of 7 mm or less. Please Post your Makes!

Yes I know the old version needs to be "stretched". Please try my newer version (pencil_bow_V2) which should allow the hole to work better

The hole and cap are too small for any pencil I have.

How about a magic trick? I can make this pencil disappear!

Instructions

(NOTE: The cap for the eraser tip is not required, and may not print correctly. It shoots fine without it)
To string the bow, thread a rubberband through the caps top hole and attach each end of the rubber band to one of the ends of the bow. Put a pencil through the hole and the eraser end into the cap. Pull back and have fun.
