Doesn't take much to shift a pingpong ball though. Mind you, they're so light they drop dead from their own air resistance in about 20m however much power you have.

Unless you inject the ping-pong ball with water... they become such awesome projectiles after that (I only have fired one, and I didn't get to see how far it went because my valve faild :oops: ).

You can buy an adapter to go from the propane tank to npt, or use a compression male end where the end of the torch unscrews.

(the adapters are available on a site i can only mention privately, so talk to me on aim about it if you want)

No, the adapters are pretty common. They sell them at a couple home centers with the propane regulators and such. It's just a female disposable tank adapter. Heres a couple sites, the second one has a good picture and is about as cheap as I can get them local.

I stalled a leaf blower out by blocking the outlet before. The fan blade is also the flywheel, so it slowed that down, and in turn slowed the engine until it just died.

That would indeed work very well. It won't be cheap or very handy though since the bottle will have to be exchanged or refilled and lugged around.

Some things you never knew about chuck norris: he sued law and order because he copy righted his right foot law and his left foot order

he's been to mars twice that's why there no life there.

he never sleeps and never blinks.

he puts the laughter in man slaughter.

has never lost his stach.

if he lost his beard he'd loose his super powers.

ok back on topic. what would happen if you hooked airhose from a fire extinguiser to the cloud. would this give a relatively good firing time?

obviously Co2 fire extinguisher.

Co2 fire extenguishers fire out liquid Co2. If you inverted it, it would work. Otherwise, it would freeze it up.

Buy an air compressor, if you buy a small electric one(about $50) it will have enough air to power a small bbmg.

If you use a C02 extuinshoper (sp) you may run into problems with static shock. Just saying.
