HOW TO – Make a spider rifle

ConnectairtubeMatt writes “I have put together some free plans for building a spider rifle. This is a device which I designed and built from pvc & cpvc pipe that uses compressed air to suck up and kill household spiders.” I don’t think you have the kill the little fellows, so this could just be used to capture and release.

    Just finished my first rifle. I found everything at Lowe’s for $22.00 including cpvc cement and a can of spray paint. It took about 15 minutes to assemble and would have been much easier if I had a drill press. It works like a champ.

    I put mine together a week or so ago but finally remembered to mention it here. I used plain white glue instead of PVC cement and it worked fine–at least for this.
