DIY centrifuge weapon from 1963 Popular Mechanics

BoingBoing reader Ted read our post yesterday on the Dubious Centrifuge Weapon, and says,

It immediately made me race down to the basement to my pile of old Popular Mechanics, specifically the November 1963 issue. I scanned it am sharing it here for BoingBoing readers. Now we can all build our own little electric centrifuge cannons! ;)

    That reminded me of this site, with a How-To on building a BB machine gun that uses a centrifugal chamber to accelerate the BBs: Link.
