FAQ:

Q: What are those extra panels at the bottom of the slide? How do I build the grooves?
A: Here's an illustration.. And here are the valley folds.

Q: How do I fold the guiderails?
A: Like this. Note that the narrowest face folds flat onto the widest face, forming a "shelf." The rest of it is a box.

Q: How do I build the rail base on the modernized version?
A: Look at its front and back faces. They should provide an idea of how everything else is folded. Here's a picture.

Q: What are the "inner sections" of the slide (pg.2) and where do they go?
A: If the "bottom of slide" is a u-shaped half-tube, its "inner sections" are attached inside it, to the larger hatched areas. Their job is to keep the spring front cap and the barrel apart. Here's a photo. Although covered by the bushing, they are partially visible from the front.

Here's a color-coded guiderail explanation.

Could you explain how to make the cylindrical parts like the barrel? Do like use a pencil to roll it first?
Reply
:iconhoborginc:
Yeah, rolling it with a pencil is a good idea. Alternately, you can make bend it at multiple intervals against the table edge. Whatever works, basically.

Thanks for the help and might I ask what type of glue you use?
Reply
:iconhoborginc:
Regular Elmer's glue, though tacky glue is also good.

If i wanted to add a spring to the spring front cap, where would I put it?
Reply
:iconhoborginc:
Theoretically, it would go around the spring guide, and inside the front cap. It would be up to you to find a spring of the correct size, though. Also it would have to be weak enough not to deform the paper.

So based on what I'm picturing, a pen spring would be way too small?
Reply
:iconhoborginc:
Yeah. However, a spring can be made from a spiral notebook. It may need to be cut down to size, but it might work.
