I made this almost two years ago, but it's still cool

This place is pretty much dead, so I figured why not post it. A college I'm applying to wanted to see it run, so there it is, up on Youtube. What do you guys think?

My +bow firing

A college I'm applying to actually asked to see one of my Nerf blasters fire. Since it was on Youtube anyway, I figure why not post it, right?

This is essentially a larger jolt, right? I love you picture quality, it's incredible. What kind of camera do you use?

Thanks ND, this is pretty helpful. I used to use MediaFire, but my MediaFire account was automatically deleted due to inactivity (hence some of my dead links). I used to use Imageshack, then Photobucket, but I think I'm going to switch to Imgur now.
5  Everything Nerf. / Modifications / Nerf Rayven 9V mod write-up on: March 26, 2015, 02:53:10 pm
Before we get into the mod, I have some warnings: First, it's been a couple years since I've written a writeup, so it might be a little shaky. Second, I modded this blaster over a month ago, adding to the shakiness. Finally, I didn't plan on doing a writeup when I began modding the blaster, so I have a slight lack of pictures. All in all, this writeup might be shaky.

Nerf Rayven (duh)
Wire (I prefer speaker wire, even though I didn't use it on this blaster)
Soldering iron
9 volt battery tray or 9 volt battery clip
Hot glue
Hot glue gun
Anything that might help while modding.

Step one: Removing the wires

When I began to rewire the blaster, the idiotic wiring confused me, so I cut all of the wires out and decided to wire it how I wanted to. You can remove any locks completely, with the exception of the second trigger than turns the flywheels on. After removing the wires, the baster should look something like this:

Once all of the unnecessary wires are removed, there should only be four wires left on the blaster: Two wires leading to the motors, and two wires leading to the trigger switch.

Step two: Wiring the switch

Wire one motor wire to the trigger switch, using solder. I believe the wire nearer the front of the blaster is the positive wire, but I'm not certain (I replaced the wire with a blue wire, so don't go by my colors).

Step three: Wiring the battery tray

Take the wire coming from the trigger switch and solder it to the positive half of your battery tray or battery clip. Take the other motor wire and solder it to the negative side of your battery tray or battery clip. It should look like this (ignore the terrible soldering job, this was after I did 40 solders for my science project):

Step four: Running your wires

It might be necessary to dremel out areas in order to run your wires without them getting in the way of your clip, depending of the gauge of your wire. I had to dremel some of the shell away. If you're using a battery tray instead of a clip, you will have to cut a hole in your shell for the tray to fit. After running your wires and cutting your hole, hot glue the wires in place and hot glue your battery tray in place.

Step five: Putting it back together

You're done! The finished internals should look something like this:

I have no clue what the ranges are because it's cold outside, but it shoots pretty hard for a flywheel blaster. Also, my photobucket was being a pain, the pictures aren't quite how I want them to look. Questions? Comments? Flames? Did I forgot anything that goes in a writeup?

@NerfDoctor, I saw you mention clear PVC in one of your posts, and I wouldn't recommend it. I've heard of clear PVC breaking quite easily in snaps. They are more susceptible to UV rays than normal PVC, causing them to be slightly more dangerous.

Other than that your ideas sound good. No clue how you could think of anything at 4am. My friend made a Nerfish marshmallow launcher for a physics project, and it used a valve system like yours. He made it out of brass pipe, but I can't remember how he made the valve. I'll have to ask him.

A concept that I've been wanting to make: a 3 in. shorter Pumpbow Lt. Stefan style. My dream plan is to make it use Nerf clips, like a pump action Longshot. I've been thinking of this plan for awhile now, I just haven't done it yet.

I've decided to (slightly) thin out my arsenal, so I'm selling a few things:

Nerf Max Force Laser Fang

Nerf Nite Finder EX-3

Buzz Bee Panther with integrated Nerf Secret Strike Pocket Blaster
8  Everything Nerf. / Modifications / Re: Modification and Paint jobs thread. on: January 16, 2015, 02:28:26 pm
That integration is super clean, Yks. Especially with no body or paint. Nice job.
9  Everything Nerf. / Reviews / Re: [Vintage] Nerf SuperMAXX 750 Review on: January 07, 2015, 03:55:31 pm
Nice review, Yks. You covered everything really well. I've always wanted one of these little blasters....

I just stickied this, becuase I think this is a thread that can last a long while.  I am also going to add different catagories to the first post. Those would be:

Favorite range blaster

Favorite RoF blaster

Favorite "Just for fun" blaster

Favorite "all around" blaster

As for me, for my favorite range blaster, I like my hoppered 4B. The thing is dead accurate, and the range is great.

For RoF, I currently like my minusbow. I thought it would be rather lond, but it's perfect for me. The priming is smooth,  it has a K25, and it gets the same range as my 4b. Emptying the 10shot clip in a couple of seconds is too much fun.

My favorite "just for fun" blaster is my praxis. Those disks are just too much fun...

And my favorite "all around blaster" is the NF. Mine shoot just as far as most primaries, and its tiny.

@Yks, I forgot about this thread, and my post could use an update:

Range: It's either between my +bow or my 4B now. The accuracy of the 4B is fun, but the +bow has that something special to it.....

RoF: The Stampede. Hands down it's my favorite modded. It gets decent range, and after you put a different battery in it, it's balanced quite well.

Just for Fun: I love the jolt. I love sneaking up on my friends with that thing in my pocket.

All Around: It's a tie between my +bow and NF still. I love the versatility of the NF, but the +bow has that something special.......

Congrats Zero!

I'm not complaining, but how come it's back?
13  For our Members / Member Input. / Re: Logos. on: November 02, 2014, 12:20:26 pm
With the normal logo gone, I made a new logo for the site...

but would prefer a different one. I uses Yks's cheater website, and you can too if you want, but you don't have to. Make something that you think your other Foamie Homies would like.
14  For our Members / Off Topic. / Re: HoF logo? on: November 02, 2014, 11:32:35 am
Ya, you're right. I hadn't realized that. Does anyone want to try and make a new one?

Edit: I just checked and the logo URL doesn't exist anymore.

Edit #2: I made a temporary logo, but I'd prefer someone to make another better one.

Edit #3: I spelled the name wrong, so for about 10 minutes, our website logo was "Hoe of Foam".

We hope for Home of Foam to carry on in Foamuniverse's legacy. Just remember, if you ever see another Nerfer, give them a friendly F U to carry on the legacy.
