When you make non gunpowder weapons at home, you are usually restricted to single shot contraptions or manual repeaters at best. But of course the ultimate goal is to build a full auto machine gun style weapon!
That is by no means very easy. Muscle powered weapons are simply not quick enough for a true Brat-a-tat action. Gas powered engines are too heavy and clumsy for a portable weapon.
Of course there are modern battery drills - plenty of torque in small packages, lightweight and affordable. It makes sense to use those as power sources. But how to turn rotational motion into a linear cocking process?
We finally, at last, had success using a rack and pinion mechanism. The wooden gears had to be reinforced with massive aluminum for a reliable operation, but the result is very convincing.
It is a reality - true machine gun feeling!
Now on to optimization.

A "The Slingshot Channel" production.
This man is capable of and ready to turn a John deer tractor into a machine gun.
But this is still immensely satisfying...
Can you make the magazine into a revolver like cartridge?
It would be much more awesome if it was a real crossbow. I mean the limb should store energy to propel those bolts not the rubber.
Overall, its a good prototype Mr Joerg
Ehrfürchtige Waffe, mein Freund!
very nice engineering and thank u for idea mr jeogsprave i like ur channel
You might even consider stripping the drill apart and moving the triggering mechanism to a different area., while maintaining the drill's motor in it's current place...
Point is, solutions exist without risking power loss.
