Welcome to my shop. Today we'll be designing and building nine different ball bearing launching catapults. Why? Other than being a lot of fun, the catapults are the perfect vehicle to show you all of my major tools, how they work, and why I have them. I had fun making these, I hope you enjoy them too.

    A big thanks to everyone who supports me on Patreon. Not only does it help make projects like this possible, they've been great to bounce ideas off for projects.

I'm planning to post more details on these launchers at my second channel if you're interested: tinyurl.com/smhtoo

      I've come down to this. A downward motion using a circular movement. It would definitely take that perfect differential downward movement. Take a slightly spiral downward spring. Put a ballistic gel on mathematical points, and press down on a glass filled with water. I recommended this to Wintergarten. Make sure you distribute oil for proper friction. I think I saw something like this in Las Vegas. I thought of this idea years before. I am willing to share, this is my invention. It takes a mechanism to achieve. I've thought of a specific spiral that might make this possible. Pressure is everything. You got it If you can use it. It will take computer controlled.

    • kylaxial

      ​@Anonymous Approximation the first major instance of that for me was when they gave us the quadratic formula, and told us it worked, but not how or why it worked. I did recognize how bits and pieces of the quadratic formula work so far, but I don't know the full picture yet. they recently just gave us "synthetic division" which somehow works, but I have no idea how.

      Anonymous Approximation

      @Gabriel Johnson I've always been a "slow" learner back in school for this exact reason; they'd tell us what, but never how or why. Yet, once I grasp it (through no help from the school), it's the equivalent of common knowledge for how easy it is to call up.

    • Gabriel Johnson
      Gabriel Johnson

      @Anonymous Approximation same here! If I understand both, I retain the information better, and I understand how it can be applied more broadly, rather than only understanding its relevance in a specific 1:1 scenario

    • Anonymous Approximation
      Anonymous Approximation

      I'm a big "how" and "why" person. If neither of those is explained, my information retention goes 'fwoop', out the window. I love this guy, because his "why" is "to see if it'll work" and he always explains his "how". More than can be said about most people when I ask for either explanation.

  • PsychoticWolfie

    This would take a lot of maker-ITmoresrs like a whole year to do, and each of these projects would take its own video.

    By the way, they found on crossbows, that the closer to the tip of the Bow part, the thinner it is the harder the crossbow will shoot, as those limbs move at incredible speeds.. One way is to make it a triangle shape, but you can also use twists in the spring, to reduce drag the further out you get.

    Great video. I am not an inventor, however, I watch other products and think of flaws, speed, and upgrades. As I watched your demonstration of the sheet metal catapult or crossbow I had an idea for you, Instead of using so many leaf springs, spot weld about 3 of the springs together. In this manner, they work together with no friction. Another idea is to make the spring different lengths similar to the method used on car leaf springs.

  • Felix Biggs

    Hey @Stuffmadehere, speaking as an emergency responder (and a finger amputee, fun fact) you should take your tourniquet out of the plastic wrapper and preset it. If you have an injury that’s bad enough to need a tourniquet, odds are you will have blood on your hands and adrenaline shakes, which mess with fine motor control. Having to tear open the plastic bag would be difficult and waste valuable “I don’t want to lose more blood” time. Infection is the least of your worries at that point, so the bag serves no useful purpose. You may also consider practicing with it at some point to see how fast you can place it properly. My whole family loves your channel and the family friendly content. Thanks for all your amazing videos!

    • Felix Biggs
      Felix Biggs

      @Daniel Torres usually the bright red violently spurting blood is a reliable indicator, but anything that refuses to stop bleeding despite considerable pressure and bandages needs a tourniquet until medical professionals can stitch you up properly... or just clean up the mess after you die cause you didn’t apply a tourniquet...

    • Yari Icke
      Yari Icke

      ​@Daniel Torres Fingers can be interlaced and squeezed to cut of most of the circulation to them. However, getting the patient to do that when they're (most likely) panicked is a whole other story. And yes, finding information via an official source would be better seeing as medical practices differ from country to country.

    • Dragos Dumitrache
      Dragos Dumitrache

      @Daniel Torres "we tourniquet limbs, not wounds" said an emergency first responder at some point. So if you'd have a big bad cut on your arm you should tourniquet close to your shoulder. My way of responding to an amputated finger would be: shirt off put around the finger and squeeze my fist as hard as I can with the affected finger in it, box/travel mug full of ice with the finger in it and rush to the hospital while calling/having someone call to announce. (I didn't had an amputated anything, but I've been hit by cars 2 times, once both my bones near the ankle broken clean punching through the skin and muscle, while being conscious all the time until I went to operation, so I know that because of the adrenaline you feel no pain in those situations..)

    I’d love to see a version of the box that tracks eye movement and only releases when someone looks in the box. The challenge could be that all the person has to do is not look in the box but the simple command of saying not to do something makes it harder not to do as time goes on. Same idea as telling someone not to think about elephants which is then impossible to not do.

      @Mark Fryer I couldn't tell you homie. No idea. I *_can_* tell you however, that in the eighteen or so hours since posting my last comment, I've told at least twelve other people that something or other "needs more chooch." Sure, right *_now_* they're looking at me like I'm crazy, but they'll come around.

      @Stickie Dmin Needs more chooch? Does this mean that they watch Ave?

      @steveman1982 Through that however, we now know about "Needs more chooch." Feels important.

    This guy continually impresses me with his vast knowledge of tools, computing, coding, calculations, technology, etc. Another excellent video!

  • GenesisRTA

    I am really amazed how smart this dude is. Funny too lol. Just a great channel in general

  • Boozegazm

    Nice to see a maker that knows machining lingo and function versus just being able to do it but not know why.

  • ScarfBandit

    I had no idea you worked on 3d printing software, that's such a cool job

    • Jimmyboy

      @ScarfBandit Very true! I was going off the explanation in the video, and forgot that supports are generally software generated. I didn't want to come off as pretentious as thats why I formatted it the way i did (as opposed to just a comment saying "firmware*"). I appreciate the informed response though!!

      Shane was leading the design team at Formlabs. He wasn't just an engineer or a manager. He led the freaking team.

    • ScarfBandit

      @Jimmyboy in the context of writing a resin support generating algorithm for a slicer, something generally hardware agnostic, I would consider it software. Either way, it's close enough that correcting me on it just comes across as pretentious.

    Dude, you are awesome! A nerd with the ability to create whatever he wants, a full fledged workshop, and a real actual WIFE. To top it off she approves all the nerd stuff you do. What else do you need ? That's my life goals met 10 times over. 👍
