duck Tape cannon *video clips*

Unread postAuthor: chimera » Fri Sep 07, 2007 2:50 pm

I built this thing a few years back and forgot about it until I found it again. I remember posting it once before one or two of you may remember it.

I made it out of a role of duct tape and a card board tube for the barrel. The back has a top fo a fruit 2o bottle from back when they were flat on top.

Its pretty simple and it works just fine for light ammo. I havent put any thing to heavy in their because I dont want to ruin it, What do u all think?

I think it's pretty redneck, lol. Just an aerosol for fuel I assume?

yea

A noise maker really but I just liked that I could make a working combustion out of just about any thing.

I'm thinking of taking a video an posting that if I can find something to fuel it with.

So when you shoot it, do you try to get that chamber expanded to spray in the fuel, or do you let the combustion blow it up like a balloon?

I usually take the bottle cap off and blow on it to expand it a bit to kinda seal up the leaks in the tape big if its not fully expanded its not a big deal. I'm going to go shoot it now an take a video.

I was hoping that the cannon used duct tape as a burst disk, not as the gun itself. Ah well. At least you didn't try it as a pneumatic.

I love that photo man, lol. I think he didn't build it to be high-performance. It sounds like he made it out of duct tape pretty much because he felt like it.

The only way you could get more ghetto than that is if you used an ordinary lighter, not even a long nosed one to light it.

well here is 2 video clips of shoting a golf ball.

fist video I used one paper towel for wadding and the second I used 2 to make it fit a bit tighter.

I didn't shoot many time because I didn't want to use all my vintage fuel.

HAHA what are you talking about paaiyan? This thing is the hight preforming cannon made of duct tape ever! lol

Well first, your videos didn't work.

Second, of course it's the highest performing duct tape cannon I've seen. It's also the only duct tape cannon I've seen.
