Posted:Ok, some of you have seen the "achey-breaky" staff featured on a couple of our latest videos. Well, after observing Dio's great creation, I was inspired to develope a staff that instantly transformed into nunchaku. Well, I told Jedi White how, and he went and made some to prove that the concept works. I just made some of my own staff-chucks. It is a short staff with a quick connect airhose fitting in the middle (with the guts stripped out), allowing instant transformation. There is a cable inside the connectors, so when you hit the disconect the staff flys apart and becomes nunchuks.

Anyways I just felt like teasing you all. I will have a video up displaying these beautiful creations, but I am not promising how soon. Definitly within the month....If I can get it done befor I leave the country then I will, but no promises.

We will also have a long staff that transforms into a three section staff. Lookout bender, your going to want to have one of these

Don't worry I will show construction and closeups of the staff at the begining of teh video. These things are so cool, everybody needs some

Thanks for postin that! I was thinkin of doing something like this for a while but had no idea how to do it. It had been on all of my friends "Wouldn't it be cool if you could" lists for ages. :Slips into his labcoat, fethches Igor, and dashes to the Lab:


And where I go the flame shall follow. Be warmed by my outward souls flare and may it guide you through darkened paths.

Posted:nope, your not the only one. Lots of people are good at one and not the other.... skill at both comes with practice.... Belive it or not; they are more similar than many people might think.

Posted:Yes! The airhose coupler. I've been thinking that would be a cool thing to use in fire equipment somehow, but never got around to actually doing anything with it. I'm excited to hear that you did, and that it works.

Posted:there is a slight problem. the spring is so weak that if you accidentaly hold the release it can come apart randomly. I am working on a "safety" for it, it may be another day or two befor i have time to finish it. But, i have the design for the safety, and it will only be a matter of time befor I finish it. this is the coolest thing since sliced bread.
