My first "real" spud cannon

Unread postAuthor: glowbum » Sun Feb 12, 2006 5:25 pm

This is the first cannon I've built in at least 10 years. It's pretty straightforward, with the fan batteries under the side panels. This is a rough draft, as I had no idea what to expect. I plan on building a sleeker, cleaner version when time allows. And yes, it does need a longer barrel!

It is because:

1. I wanted to be able to see it clearly.

2. It just fit better right there.

3. I like it there.

The cannon is pretty. It seems so simple, yet the meter sets the whole thing off. Keep up the work and I look forward to seeing more from you.

Oh, yeah, you do know that you can upload more than one attachment into the original thread, right.

You know, it was a pretty old post. I didn't realize. However, there have been questions on whether a cannon post can be bumped without too much controversy. I don't know what the mods said about, but one will eventually post and tell.
