The “Wolf” ray gun made from a vintage drill. This one has lights and sounds…

tmax I have the exact same Wolf drill in parts waiting for me to convert it into a ray gun. Unfortunately its in storage at the moment, but once I move house (and get a workshop woohoo!) I will finish the project.

It’s such a cool, retro looking drill. Perfect for ray-gun builds. In fact I kept a second one to do another build which I will keep for myself…

This sort of fits the remit: a Dieselpunk take on a Ghostbusters Proton Pack:

A work in progress, need to take some pictures of the wand, it's since had dial graphics applied, my plan is to have arduino driven lights and sounds, with jumping dial pointers, already have the servos and code, just need to learn how to use an arduino, so far, I can make an LED flash...

Amazing! Love it. Any thoughts to paint it? Would look amazing in copper!

Thank you! I'm toying with doing the main body a hammered metallic green, like old machine tools, with black for the plate with the components on, and the components a Bakelite style finish, a darker version of what I did on my art deco ray rifle, maybe before I start on the electronics, at least then it'll look finished!
Very good work, as ever! I've got a box of old drills, somewhere, a raygun in this style is on my to do list, and, funnily enough, the handle on the neutron wand on my pack is a 1920s Black and Decker drill that belonged to my boss's grandad, it was being thrown out, and, well, then it wasn't...
