56 Joule Coilgun from Salvaged Parts v2.0

Have you ever wanted to fire a projectile using the power of electromagnetism? Then this instructable is for you. In one of my old instructables, I show you how to build a coilgun, or gauss gun, from disposable camera capacitors and circuit board. Nowadays, disposable cameras are hard to come by, I had to buy the disposable camera shown in my previous instructable on ebay. Also, the coilgun in that instructable was not very powerful. In this instructable, I will show how to build a better, more powerful coilgun from scratch. The video below will complement this instructable with an explanation of how this coilgun works and a demonstration of it firing.”
