How to make functional Wolverine claws


From Make via BoingBoing:

Wolverine hacks

This guy worked out how to scratch-build (punny!) functionally retractable Wolverine costume claws. Warning, you will need a bandsaw and some skill with aluminum, but anybody who has done any fair amount of auto body repair should be able to whip up a SNIKT-o-riffic pair of faux-adamantium pigstickers with relative ease. Instructions to be found here.

- I could never fix my hair that way! Oh yeah, those claws look like they could be dangerous too! ;-) - too much documentation on his website as to how he did this, next thing in the news will be kids who did this and hurt other people, it's always like that. I'm not blaming him, he obviously put alot of effort into his costume and his claws, I'm just saying that's just how kids are nowadays.

Check local concealed weapon laws before trying this yourself!

I was very interested as to how he engaged the claws to shoot out, and likewise retract. I think he has it as a manual process.

Funny thing about concealed carry....if you have a concealed carry permit for a firearm read the fine print. It is still illegal for you to carry a folding/locking/fixed blade knife over 4 inches, brass knuckles, long guns or batons. It's legal for me to carry my .45 or my 18rd Glock 9mm, but a knife is just too dangerous to handle. Who knew? :)

Or be wary of people with extremely long sleeves.

He'll need them if he walks about dressed like that not to mention trying to scratch his arse or doing an 'equipment' check.
