Bricks of Mass DestructionPosted: July 20, 2009 | Author: dye | Filed under: Lego | Tags: Lego Gun Turret Sentry | Leave a comment »
When our Lego bricks disobey their creators…
This was a little Lego Turret I built using 80% ABS Lego Bricks. The other 15% is an automated BB gun. I control it using the standard Lego Motor box and the BB Gun is powered using a Cell Phone Charger as a power supply 5V at 1A. The base is wide so the recoil of the gun doesn’t tip the gun over. Plus it gave me the chance to use the oversized wheel from my dissassembled Lego Starwars Hail Fire Droid and use it for lazy Susan.
Some of you can add better than I and realize I’m missing 5%. That 5% is a resin I used to attach some Lego Beams to the Gun. By doing that I Lego-ized the gun in case I ever need to rebuild it.
The toy is a manual control turret so it doesn’t need limit switches.
