2017-08-08 (Tu) Pi0 Laser Tag PiTagErrUs

One of the new switch adapters and a switch were selected for the first try. The shortest, pistol-style, tagger was selected because it would be the least amount to lose if this design didn't work. Medium Black ABS Cement was applied to the switch threads before it was pushed through the adapter plate. There was lots of extra cement on the plastic but it was all internal so it wouldn't be visible on the tagger.

Cemented switch

All the adapters were drilled with a countersinking bit so countersunk screws could neatly attach the plate to the pipe. The pipe was drilled with a small bit and short screws were inserted at the corners of the adapter.

Attached adapter plate

Once everything was mounted, the trigger was tested. Even though the cement had only been drying for an hour, the stability was good and the trigger tested well. The most notable problem was that the trigger and handle were far apart. Someone with small hands or short fingers may have trouble pulling the trigger.
