Well eventually I knew the cat would be let out fo the bag so I am going to post this a bit earlier than expected:
Yes i know the Monoggle is not complete yet, but hey we all need diversions =)
Project T:
Will be a combination of Tesla and Steam power. My original plan was to make a Tesla rifle, but after a long session with Capt. Barley Wilkerson it evolved into some monstrosity that will be a bit of a challenge combining both Tesla and steam power concepts, a hefty workload i might add...lol.

I will update here when I have some new concept sketches.
Ok here are some concept sketches:

I apologize in advance for the crappiness, I tend to not work off drawings often ans my mind sees things better than i can illustrate,



POLL is located here (had to start a new topic)
http://brassgoggles.co.uk/bg-forum/index.php?topic=13069.0

Please vote, it will run for 1 week =)


Please peruse and leave comments good or bad =D

I look forward to seeing how this turns out. Even though it's not a tea kettle of doom as I'd hoped. Grin

this thing is gonna be ridiculously awesome... can't wait to see what you do after that irc session...

seriously... if you guys thought the monoggle project was good, you're gonna drown in your own drool when you see what's going on with this project... i was talking to taggert on the irc channel and from what i saw, this gun is awesome...


taggert, keep us posted with LOTS of pics...

This fine idea seems to be based around an old worlds of wonder starlyte lazertag pistol, a design I know very well Smiley

That you are Professor Higgins =)

Well as Capt. Wilkerson pointed out, that irc session changed quite a few of the plans around =D

It is in fact now going to be a Steam powered  Tesla rifle using this as a base:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

the handguard/trigger is going to be from the lazer tag pistol , with a stock from a rifle, and the barrel will be on top. There is alot to go, but i wanted to give a update =)

I will post a concept pic when i get a chance to whip one up.

Suggestions welcome =D

For now i must finish my Monoggle =D

Thanks for looking!

So THIS is the secret weapon you did not want to talk about on the IRC Smiley
The idea to use a portable vac is simple genius! I am looking forward to this one, especially after we have all witnessed what you are capable of regarding your monogoggle.

The design looks good and I feel I must ask, are you using an old Lazer Tag Starlyte as the base?

That was the original plan tho now i will be using mainly the grip, trigger and part of the back. I have  of them and the star sensors, and star base. =)

I will have to update the design pic when i get a chance, right now i am finishing up the monoggle =)

I recognised the Laser Tag pistol from the first sketch. I used to have the LT rifle too, which would be fun to mod - it had an extending shoulder stock, which would be nice to switch out from plastic to wood. That vacuum looks like a nice base for a pulse rifle, though.

It will be a pistol, not a raygun....

OOh OOh Taggerts doing a rifle - fantastic!

I agree with the rest of 'em - the vacuum is a great base for a rifle type thingy. I too am at the big gun design stage but I need to find a rifle stock first.

Looking forward to another nice long richly detailed thread from the forums newest proffessor.

BTW - how do I get those funny dots to appear over the 'o' in Herr Dok and now the 'e' in Taggert?

Holy crap.... that vacuum is so similar to mine... I had the same idea about how much it looked like some kind of really high-tech weapon... but as mine was working just fine, I didn't mess with it.... ah well. I hope yours turn out well!

@ maduncle to make the umlaut on a windows machine it's ALT+0235 for ë and for the ö it's ALT+0246 =) also check here for rifle stocks:
http://www.jeffsoutfitters.com/store.aspx?panel=1&categoryid=88 it's US based but they may ship abroad.

@heavyporker I agree that it does have a very high tech look to t, the challence is to make it look not high techish..lol. Considering they only cost about 20 bucks i can justify tearing mine apart...lol

@everyone,
I have a few design sketches in the works, i may put a poll up to see which one has the best flow, give the people a say in how this progresses Cheesy

Ok so heres a idea of where the 2 pieces will be mated:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I want to retain the area ahead of the trigger minus the guard this way the back section will still be stable. Plus it gives me another area for switches =D '

Thoughts?

Update i did some preliminary cutting, now you can get a better idea, the black marker line is where it will be shaped to conform to the curve but you get the gist:
