Tinkerton's Chatterbox by Steampunked-Out Tinkerton's Chatterbox by Steampunked-Out
Demo video is viewable on my website: [link]

Available for sale on Etsy: [link]

Tinkerton Scientific is always working on new designs and we are proud to present this new arm weapon inspired on Gatling's amazing innovation. Tinkerton's Chatterbox is made to fire .38 rounds or Aether Energy Stunners. Take down a crowd, or take them out completely. Powered with steam and the rare element, glim...or 2 AA batteries.

OK, so if it really did work, it would be awesome, but I don't think I would actually want it strapped to my arm. I did make it completely from scratch using brass tubing and plates, a hobby motor and leather. The motor runs on 2 AA batteries hidden inside the bullet magazine which is removable by loosening the set screw at it's base. I wired in a toggle switch just behind the barrels as a safety switch, and a press button for firing using the thumb. The leather is a 7oz veg tan, embossed with clockwork tooling, and finished in antiqued brown.

**DOES NOT ACTUALLY FIRE ANY PROJECTILES**
For costume use only. 2 batteries are included. Adjustable strap fits a wrist size 6"-8".

Thank you! Had so much fun making it, I'm thinking of making another one if this one sells.

Very interesting and detailed.
Heck you could probably make a Gatling BB gun!

So you a fan of the book Dead Iron: The Age Of Steam?

Ha! You caught the "glim" reference...awesome. I've been adding tiny vials with colored liquids to things for some time now, and when I read Dead Iron, the idea of glim matched exactly what I was thinking. I wish I could figure out a more affordable way to mimic the glowing property. Wiring LEDs takes a lot of time and really ads to the cost, and chemical solutions like glow sticks don't last long enough. Oh well, they are fun to build anyway. :)

Fun idea would be to make a device that has a slot for a certain brand of glow stick. Then you could sell that specific brand of "fuel". Can place old looking labels on the sticks. May be even make an ammo belt for them.

Would help create customer return ratio.

Ya, I've been playing with a similar idea for a standard glow stick so people can buy their own when they wanted to use it for an event. Would save a lot on labor, and glow sticks are fairly cheap now last time I looked. Too many projects on the drawing board. ;)

Found an odd company that deals with photoluminescent powder pigments.

Something about using crystals that emit their own light.
