Make a Spud Gun – Weekend Projects: A Make Magazine Video Podcast


In this episode of weekend projects, I make a spud gun and teach you how to make one too. In the process, I get hit with a potato, shocked by a stun gun, caught by security, and attempt to obliderate a pumpkin. How can you resist?

This video podcast was inspired by William Gurstelle’s article in Make 03. You can go to this blogpost to download a pdf with all the instructions to make your own “Tazer-Totter.” [Update: Testing a Digg button – please click it – pt]
