Disclaimer #1: This is by far not the only
method extant for building Thrust and Throw Javelins. This particular
design has been found to work the best in the Kingdom of Caid, after
many prototypes of different materials construction were beaten to
pieces by our fighters.
Disclaimer #2: Please check with your local Marshallate before buying/building/using Thrust and Throw Javelins.
Disclaimer #3: The Charter Plastics polyethylene pipe I sell does not fit together tightly. Hammering it together with a lubricant is unnecessary: however, we have found to our dismay that the inner pipe can shift under heavy usage conditions and destroy your thrusting tip head from the inside out. Thus, the instructions for gluing the pipes together and then drilling/tying them as additional security are included.
Disclaimer #4: Do not use any PVC component in your javelins. If you donít want to use a rubber stopper other things can be used, but do not use PVC end caps. Polyethylene end caps are available, but they are expensive.
Disclaimer #5: Do not cover the entire shaft of your javelin with tape. This is not necessary, adds dead weight, and the markings stamped on the side of the pipe need to be visible and readable by the inspecting Marshal. And, worst of all, if you coat your entire javelin with yellow duct tape it could possibly be mistaken for a ballista bolt and cause a terrible accident on the field.
Disclaimer #6: New Society rules mandate that no fletching or fins can be on anything any further out than one half inch, unless itís built up to 1.5 inches thick.
Therefore, the Fin Installation section to this article has been removed.
So letís get started. I have found that the most comfortable way to make javelins is to sit in your recliner with the footrest extended, and hold the javelin between your feet. Put on a good movie or music, make some nice espresso and find your cat(s) something else to do.
