Sap gloves are dead easy, I just took some motorcycle gloves with padding on the knuckles, opened the stitching a bit to get the padding out and replaced it with ground lead, a fresh bit of stitching and Bob's your mother's brother.

You can use fine shot but the ground stuff shapes to your hand better.

I don't know if anyone's mentioned this on previous pages, but if you could do the work to make one hand, or full sized crossbow with a steam reloading mechanism is pretty good, especially if you fit it with a wheel or feeding magazine or have multiple arms and strings on one bow. It would need lots of pistons and gears and adjusting levers, which makes it even better.

Remember the film SCUM - sock, snooker balls, enuff said.

My dad was a plumber - always had some lead pipe or solder bars around the place as a kid.

I've noticed this thread seems to be bringing out the darker side of me  Wink

So long as it doesn't use some sort of chemical propulsion system, I'm sure you're safe.

personally I'd say it wouldn't count so long as you weren't using it as a propellant itself, which as it is an explosive you could feasible do

I read a SF novel once where a net could be fired from a special gun and the net was covered in barbed hooks AND was electrified.

A TASER net?

Don’t they have something like that now, but without the barbs and electricity?

+100 cool points for the first one to draw up plans for a working tazer net.

p.s after a miss speling i got the idea for a weapon that fires an orange coulored, fruit flavored carbonated soft drink as high pressure

Here's where you can buy the pricey net gun (in the USA anyway).  Electrifying it seems fairly problematic however unless you limit the electrical contact points to a minimal number of net strands.  markf

taser umbrella or parasol? insulate the tip shank and add small spurs to the canopy ribs, to complete the circuit.

they make pen shaped tasers that could probably be incorporated into a handle.

or a pepperspray parasol.

You asked, and I provide:

Here is a Steampunk styled flail I made. I'd say it's one of the few non-raygun steampunk weapons to exist. :rolleyes: Eitherway, I believe it could be called "Steampunk" not just because I used brass and bronze screws, because brass doesn't make something steam style...but because it is something practical that might have been made from items at hand, such as bolts, chain and because of the inventive nature of the Victorian era, machines made for shaping metal.

To elaborate on the practical nature, it could be said an inventor of the era might have made it out of spare parts, bolts, chain, an axle, or whatever. I would not say it is beyond the level of authenticity in tools used to make this, or the level of technology required to produce it in that era. However, the surface ground finish might have been a bit unpractical as that was a special operation back then...though not unachievable with sandpaper or a grinding stone. I left the finish bumpy because it would add to the authenticity and also because it does look nicer and will take wear and tear nicer.

More pictures of this item and many of my other items can be found on my forum: http://dothacker.omghax.ca/index.php?topic=437

I had been working on some ideas for steampunk melee weapons.  I was thinking of a quarterstaff with a cattleprod tip.  It would be like a Star Wars forcepike.  Except it would have somekind of electro-chemical power plant.  This same technology could be applied to edged weapons so that you could have an electrically charged blade.

Telescopic cane that may become a quarter stave.

This gave me an idea, I hope I am not too late in posting it. I have always been wary of telescopic mechanism especially where grime may invade, as will often be the case at the foot of a walking-staff. Chrome telescoping elements have little issue as chrome is very hard as well as very smooth, these two factors are needed in tandem unless a complicated seal is present, I think.

Given that difficulty I thought as an alternative, how about a pair of canes which join together to form a sort of quarterstaff? How they would join together I'm not quite sure.

My first impulse was that they would join at the handle end, which rather raises some conflict between the various uses of the implement but that conflict is of that sort which arouses the imagination to particularly ingenious solutions.

I don't suppose joining the canes by the foot would be practicable as any small amount of mud or sand could clog up the mechanism, although if this issue were overcome the resultant stave would have a rather effective protuberance at each end. Very nasty.

A third solution to the problem of joining would be to carry a third item, perhaps a sort of cylinder, of mysterious design and ambiguous purpose which would serve to join the pair of canes when desired.

If you wish to give the impression of actually needing a pair of canes to get around, then I should note that my father, when he did need such, found it useful to fix a lanyard to each cane so that he could support himself on one cane and not have to find a place to rest the other when reaching into his coat-pocket.

Dear me, my imagination seems to run wild when considering weapons and covert operation alike. I wish it would turn as readily to peaceful pursuits.

One can always do a variant of the gun that Scaramanga uses in the movie “The Man With The Golden Gun”.  One takes various ordinary items that by themselves are perfectly harmless, but when combined, become a lethal projectile weapon.
I’m sure that there are many steamy items one can have on their person that can be used for this…fountain pens, card holders, cigarette cases, modified trench lighters, etc.
