*Warning* The following weapons use extremely sharp edges. If you wish to use these examples please take caution, though if you bashing you are probably allready using semi-dangerous tools. Hello Radicons, been a long while since I posted anything, but in trying to cheap out of paying ebay prices for a shadow scyther I had an idea (and probably not a new one) about making some transformers sized melee weapons (cause you can never have enough.) I didnt even think to take some pics till I was almost done, but its easy and I'm sure you'll get the idea. My pole based weapons all started as knitting needles. These are great because they are stong and light weight, a dremmel will still cut right through them, and they come in many diameters. I picked up 4.5mm size thinking that with a coat of paint it would be perfect. With primer, paint, and a top coat it is still a bit loose in a 5mm hole, so the next pack I get will probably be the 5mm. Heres where the pics would have come in handy. Now we need some some blades to attach to our handles, and a trip to lowes solved that problem. I bought a few random utility knife replacement blades, a breakaway boxcutter, a Linoleum blade, and a scoring blade. All fairly cheap, around $3-4 a piece, though the breakaways come in multiple sizes and counts. All we need now is some way to connect the 2. You can glue the blade straight to the needle, but I wouldnt recommend it. I looked around in my spare parts bin for anything split evenly in half. After I located something that fit the general shape of what I needed, I took apart my connecter, lightly sanded down the inside seam JUST where the blade would be attached inside, as to make it a (mostly) seamless connection. Your dremmel cutting blades will cut through the utility blades to make them fit the contours of your connecter piece. This will make the blades extremely hot so please heavy gloves and eye protection. I was too lazy to do this step for most of mine. After that just take you dremmel and make a nice little hole in your connecter for you handle to go in. Paint up what you want, and glue it all together. Another way Im guessing you could go about this with almost any hunk of plastic, is by taking your cut-off blade on your dremmel and just making a notch for the blade to slide into. Haven't experimnted with this yet, but it should work with out a hitch. Swords are just as easy, instead of using a pole handle, just glue on a peg you cut off of some junk. Stick them all over the place and you get some werid buster/gun sword! I didn't paint any of the blades because I like the metal look, but you could do some interesting things with the fluorescent paints. Also for aesthetics my blades are turned backwards, but they are no less sharp, so please be careful handleing, or if you have kids, siblings, roommates, let them know, or if they piss you off alot ... don't.
