Woodchuck here. I just finished this Z-6 rotary cannon. It has an 18 volt cordless drill motor spinning the barrels. There is a clutch built into the motor housing as a safety feature, should the barrel meet with an obstruction while spinning. This thing weighs in at 16 pounds, so it is very heavy and bulky, just as it is supposed to be.
Drool and enjoy, LOL, but I do NOT plan on making anymore of these any time soon.

It actually spins? OMG video time...Next year on the tax returns...its blaster time!
I know. Can you imagine this at a con or troop?!?!
The barrel spinning make gun sounds from a BC while hih powered LEDs flash from the muzzle. I would so put some camera flash units in the muzzle. It would be freaking awesome.
Woodchuck. You might want to consider linking some of your customers to this site. We have some very talented guys that could really wire your guns up. Alex Gordon just finished a very awesome E-11 blaster build. Then we have the sabersmith guys like Industrial Action that could do wonders with all the space you have in a blaster.
Woodchuck here. I will have to contact the customer who had me build the cannon. He was in a hurry to get it, so I didn't have time to shoot any video. ( usual case, LOL) ;D I'll post here if he has anything up.

ARKM: Sadly no. Well, that's not entirely true. I did finish writing it but did not perform the steps and take pics of said steps.

ARKM: So it's like "Step 5: Using the high temperature temp, tape the paper with the design on it onto the metal part to be etched."

ARKM: ... but there's no Pic 4.

profezzorn: from other things I've read it's just PNP blue with some heat and pressure applied, right?

ARKM: Some use that. I could not get successful results with it but others have.

profezzorn: so what do you use?

ARKM: I personally use glossy magazine pages. I just rip a page out of a magazine and put it in the printer. The pages have to be the right thickness for the printer though. Too thin and they rip in the printer.
