When you make non gunpowder weapons at home, you are usually restricted to single shot contraptions or manual repeaters at best. But of course the ultimate goal is to build a full auto machine gun style weapon!
That is by no means very easy. Muscle powered weapons are simply not quick enough for a true Brat-a-tat action. Gas powered engines are too heavy and clumsy for a portable weapon.
Of course there are modern battery drills - plenty of torque in small packages, lightweight and affordable. It makes sense to use those as power sources. But how to turn rotational motion into a linear cocking process?
We finally, at last, had success using a rack and pinion mechanism. The wooden gears had to be reinforced with massive aluminum for a reliable operation, but the result is very convincing.
It is a reality - true machine gun feeling!
Now on to optimization.

What you didn't mention was how much power it has. It looks like it you could take down a small bird or possibly a mouse or rat?
Enjoyed the video
Maybe by removing the drill and use only the motor of it. Place the button in the right place like a trigger. That way u will fix the balance, the mobility and the appearance of the project. U could also place the magazine in the bottom so u can adds sights on the top area.
imagine how massive that would be if it hadnt any tires and was working as a compound crossbow. But i understand that u work with tires :)
Great idea and good job. i always enjoy ur videos. :)

Just think of it. You just Made a quantum leap ... I'm just saying. Thinking outside the box. No more guns no more ammo. Someone tries to break into your home. And you pumped him with a whole clip of those bolts 😲
OMG !! 🙀🙀👍🏻👍🏻..
YAKMAN OUT !!
Hast du mal daran gedacht statt des Akkubohrers den Anlasser eines Kfz-Dieselmotors und eine Autobatterie zu verwenden? Dann könntest du das Ganze auch viel stabiler (Metall?) und mit wesentlich stärkeren Gummis auslegen.
This man is capable of and ready to turn a John deer tractor into a machine gun.
But this is still immensely satisfying...
