I am a teenager and I have seen many movies with cool weapons and other stuff like that. Iron Man, Wanted, Wolverine, and Death Race have put me into a state of extreme wanting to build some of these cool weapons.
I want to build a spring loaded blade, Just for use in my backyard, cutting branches, and lets face it, a few melons or other fruit in half.
The blade will only be 2 feet long or so.
I want this blade to be attached to a metallic exoskeleton i have already fashioned from some scrap material. I have a knuckle guard and a 3/4 piece of pipe for a hand grip. This connects via bendable section, to a forearm piece which just straps to my arm.
I want to be able to bend my wrist when the blade is "contracted" and not be able to bend my wrist when the blade is out (similar to Wolverine)
I need ideas on the spring mechanism, the spring release mechanism (preferably a button) and the wrist locking mechanism.
Thanks in advance guys.
