Well, I finally found the time to make a web shooter. I used Scary Terrys design, but followed the twist that Hollyberry, Lotus and ScareFX did to simplify it. So thanks to you guys for posting your pics so I could steal, er, borrow your ideas. It helped a lot. I still need to clean up the gun and maybe cut a little more off the tube as I still throw big gobs occasionally...or maybe I just need to practice the technique a little more. But I'm pretty happy with the results and the project was fairly easy.

Hey, thanks everyone. It does clean up easy as long as you don't spray too close or really layer it on too much in one spot. I cleaned up most of what you saw in a couple of minutes just by pulling it off and then rolling up the glue strands into a ball and rubbing that on the stuck parts. And the ball valve I used was a little big, but it's all I could find locally, and it seems to work fine.

I have a quick question. Don't you have to be constantly loading these tiny glue sticks in the gun? Basically it needs 1 loaded inside, with another pushing it through and taking its place, right?

Yup, you have to keep feeding the glue sticks through very slowly. The web in the pics was one small and about 1/2 of a long stick, so it can really eat it up, so buy lots of them. I used the ones from the dollar store and they worked fine. When you get a good spray going, it doesn't take long to make a decent web.

Oh, and there was a whole other web I did with the same glue sticks that's not in the pics, so I guess it's pretty cheap to do if you buy cheap sticks.

This is probably a stupid question, but I'll ask it anyway: Has anyone ever tried making a cheap web shooter using a can of air duster strapped to a glue gun? I don't have an air compressor, and I'm just wondering if a can of air duster has enough pressure to do short bursts of web. I'm guessing no...

It was once said that Edison failed over 2000 times before he finally got the light bulb to work...

Edison merely stated, "I didn't fail... I found over 2000 ways not to make a light bulb". :)
