I do not recommend you to replicate this Railgun by yourself, the magnets used are very strong and dangerous. You could try with smaller magnets and make it to scale. For the bravest here are the magnets I used in this experiment.
Thanks to Supermagnete.com for giving me these magnets for free.

On my channel you will find all the ways to have fun with magnets divided into 3 main categories:
Classical magnetic experiments such as magnetic levitation, homopolar motors, small magnetic weapons, Gauss cannons, gears, magnetic field viewers and much more.
Satisfaction video like the construction of magnetic sculptures, slime and magnetic putty and product review.
ASMR relaxing videos to watch but above all to listen preferably with stereo headphones to be able to appreciate the particular sounds of the magnets

The magnetism has always intrigued me. The strength of the magnets is scientifically explainable but there’s something “magical” about its interaction with the world. My Channel offers you curious experiments and fun games to do with magnets.
