    Snap Cap Stefans

    Post  Kat on Sat Jul 30, 2011 2:51 pm

    How to make snap cap stefans
    You will need
    - your foam blanks (I'm sure there is enough info on the forums and the internet to help you cut up your foam and to straighten it.)
    - hot glue gun with glue sticks
    - snap caps
    - 00 split sinkers (optional)

    First step (optional)
    Burn a small hole in your foam as you would in making a normal hot glue dome stefan if you are using fbr.


    Second step
    Fill your snap cap with hot glue.

    If you want to use a 00 split sinker, then use a little hot glue to stick it to the centre of the snap cap, then fill it up with hot glue.


    Third step
    Place the snap cap on top of your blank and put the dart somewhere to dry.



    Fourth step
    Repeat.

    Slugs and Snap Cap darts look SO MUCH BETTER than hot glue domes imo. Unless you've practiced alot, hot glue domes are pretty lame.

    I feel offended... Nah.. I have to admit these do loom good, but what do you expect? They are all made exactly the same.

    Hey man

    Just wondering about your foam, seeing as you gave me some samples. Are they normally that .. er.. 'bendy'? I'm kinda disappointed with that part of the foam.

    I found with the streamline length ones that I haven't put in the dryer turns to be a bit bendy.
    The ones I gave you were part of 20 I made up quicky for my maverick to see if the 00 sinker darts fired ok. I gave them to you to see if the foam would split as you said it happened with the blue foam.
    This foam seems to be better in lengths of 2" and below. Just cut them down. I was going to cut them down, but it I grabed them on the way out of the door when I came to pick up the other stuff.
    I'm getting some white foam which is denser.

    lol yeah I couldn't really test if they split since I have an RSCB on my BBUMB atm. so can't try snap caps atm.

    You should bring a sample of white foam. Getting foam in the future from you would be a lot easier for me than shipping it from informer in QLD.

    ah, I do, on my AT2K. But yeah as I said, found it a bit hard to twist fit due to the non-rigidity of the samples.

    Not exactly a hard topic to search.

    The brand of the caps used is "snap caps", and they're used to decoratively conceal screw heads.

    It's not like there's 2 or 3 different people selling them on this forum....

    I recommend if some people don't have access to stingers or stefans then they should mod their streamlines with hot glue to add accuracy.
    I used to do that before i got stingers and it worked pretty well.

    I modded my streamlines today by cutting the soft top open and putting hot glue in them. The range increased but accuracy is something lef to be desired..

    That might be because your glue tips are wonky. I take it from experiance.

    Glue tipped streamlines are inaccurate because of the long stalk, at least that's what I've observed.

    No, not without ruining the foam, I suggest you just use blue foam+snap caps, it is cheaper anyway.

    I guess its what you are using the darts for. If in stock and spring blasters, the blue foam would be great, but in air blasters, fbr would be better as this counters the problem 2120 put forward.

    I've never had that problem but for all the darts I use in my air blasters, I've just used solid foam.

    well you are probably right, as I lack any (non auto) air blasters,
    but I just like straw modding because it means the darts don't bend.

    For the fbr, I've noticed that the foam gets a bit bendy at longer lengths, but I normally only uses 1.5" and 2" for it anyway.
    I got a sample of white fbr and it seems denser than the grey one, but I haven't made any darts for the white one yet.

    Hey Kat..

    But off topic here, clear your PMs lol.

    Also, the new batch of foam blanks you gave me look the same as the first batch, but these ones are quite a good fit. What was the diff?

    Hey
    I know their the same. I haven't cut up any of the white foam yet. I gave those blanks so you can try using them with a hot glue dome in your bbumb. I only have unopen bags of small snap caps so i didn't want open them yet.
