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.
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.
