my first mini

Unread postAuthor: trebla » Wed Jan 18, 2006 2:04 am

this is my first combustion mini cannon ive ever made. i simply glued(pvc pipe cement) a pvc pipe to an adaptor i found in my garage and the other end to an old airsoft cylinder. i glued a pen to the cylinder. then i used a bbq ignitor. you can jsut put a soda bottle cap on the back of the adapter. i havent really experimented w/ fuels but i used some cologne and it seemed to work pretty well.

what do you guys think?

Same here looks good. Are you going to give it a paint job? You should make a bipod for it or a stand! Nice work.

i just made two more after i got home from school, they both work well.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/daphnelovesx/spud004.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> another mini. pvc pipe and a water bottle. and a washer inside the combustion chamber.

<img src="http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v429/daphnelovesx/spud006.jpg" alt="Image hosted by Photobucket.com"> this is a bad pic. its a clear cannon about 3 ft. its really loud. eee.

anywho. for the first mini ive been using nail polish in a nasacort spray bottle (nose stuff) i usually just shoot qtips at my little sister but i made some rockets out of sharpies that work pretty good.

Hey the bottle one looks really nice but how do you find airing it out? I mean there is no endcap so it must be fairly hard?!? Nice guns though!
