Update #24

There's a new kid in town...

Actually, its a new Magnetapult. Its launching distance is over 30 feet, and its just a bit bigger than the original Mini Magnetapult. It's available at promotex.ca and there's still enough time to get it before Christmas!

I've also launched a new kickstarter project, which unfortunately won't be ready by Christmas, but if you're a science, magnet or even speed nut, you'll love it:

      Hi Dennis!

      Unfortunately not. (In fact, to verify, I build one, but those original magnets are just too strong...)

      However, I'll post an update with the pdf for the original Magnetapult, so you can cut the necessary parts.

      Would it be possible to use the magnets from the original to make this one? I've got a laser engraver and if you released the plans I could cut out the necessary parts. My magnetapult broke already(left it in the ready position and the force cracked the arm), but would love to be able to launch some ping pong balls.
