What's new here?

Two New Books!

We’ve added a couple of really neat books to our line-up. First up is Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction

Mini Weapons of Mass Destruction

Build Implements of Spitball Warefare

As the name implies, the entire book is devoted to plans and building of mini-catapults, launchers, crossbows and such. Included are

  • Clothespin Catapult
  • Matchbox Bomb
  • Shoelace Darts
  • Paper-Clip Trebuchet
  • Tube Launcher
  • Clip Crossbow
  • Coin Shooter
  • Hanger Slignshot
  • Ping-Pong Zooka

…and many more! In all over 35 projects are described along with some instructions for building some nifty targets for your min-weapons to shoot at!

The usual caveats should apply here: Do not aim any of these weapons at people, etc. Yadda, yadda you know the drill.

The next book is Amazing Leonardo Da Vinci Inventions You Can Build Yourself and like the Mini-Weapons book it involves making and building cool things based on the inventions and sketches of the famous inventor

Leonardo!

Leanardo!

Now, how well some of these invention work may be a different matter. Most of Leonardo’s sketches were never ‘brought to life’ and most folks can see there will be some design flaws with them (his hand cranked  helicoptor is an example). But that still leaves lots of great things like a Perspectograph, Weather Predictor,  Trebuchet,  and many more. Detailed building instructions are given for over fifteen Leonardo inspired constructions that use ordinary household materials.

Both of these books are part of our library of excellent science books. Be sure to pick up copies today!
