UPDATE:

I am working on a new prototype for the Ray gun. For addtional information, please go here

to read up on the 3d printed version of this Ray Gun.

How to build a Killer Klown ray gun

I am a huge fan of Killer Klown from outer space. ive always wanted to get some of the movie props that have been listed on ebay, but honestly the prices for some of the stuff is outrageous! After look closely to the design ( and there are a few artist sketched mockups to serve as guides) I knew I could build one for myself.

Update:Ā  i couldn’t find my pics of the original build. But i had some leftover parts and will start this tutorial:

parts

All of the wood parts were purchased at Hobby Lobby but im sure most Craft stores will carry something similar. The two PVC adapters I got at Home Depot (1″ for the larger one and 1/2″ on the smaller one. I got them in the plumbing section ). I drilled a 1/4″ hole in almost everything here specifically for the dowel that will serve as the support for the rest of the items.

parts2

Once the holes are completed just start sliding the parts in. I didnt glue any of these parts, but if your drill hole is a little big, you may want to fasten them down so they don’t move as much.

parts3

Continue sliding the rest of the parts so that You can see what it will look like, but more importantly, so you can make any adjustments before the paint job.

parts4

The wheel will take a little time if you pay close attention to detail the way I like to.

Quick and easy: just super glue the small wood dots to the outer edge of the wheel and eyeball the spacing.

Detailed:Ā  Grab a powered sander and gently press each ball slightly into the sandpaper that will form a small flat surface. Once you apply the glue, it will adhere to the wheel with better strength.Ā I used a ruler and evenly spaced all 8 of the dots that I used. Using a similar pattern to this: (feel free to draw all you want on it, youre gonna paint it!)

    Can I get step by step instructions on how to make it? My daughter wants a Killer Klowns from Outer Space birthday party and I’m trying to custom make most of it and I’m a little stressed out. If I could make this myself it would be a huge relief.

      You have an awesome daughter! Yes, let me look for the pictures that I took. I bought most of the items at Hobby Lobby and the rest at home depot. Let me go through my archives and see if I can get this tutorial going.

    Do you sell them on amazon? Me and my son enjoy the killer klown from outer space movie. It my son favorite movie. Do you only sell them on ebay. I’m going to have to buy the shorty costume separte. It going cost me about 200.00. They don’t sell the costume together. I like to buy a gun for my son costume when I get it for next year halloween.
