Although it makes the cannon look nice and clean, it also creates a prime opportunity for accidental firings since it is somewhat natural to set a gun down on the back end. Especially for someone who decides to troubleshoot the gun by looking down the barrel.



I am fully aware of that.
Thank you for the heads up though.
next time I wont have the igniter at the end cap, perhaps on the side.

I appreciate it :)

Nice job. I like the way you used spigot fittings in the SCH-80. Mr. Plow used to do that with some of his cannons...

How bout a safety?
Epoxy a 3/4" coupler over the top of it so you have to insert a finger to depress and it would protect against accidental discharge.

You might need to bevel out a area for it to seat for better bonding or bolt a plug at the end and the igniter thru that then glue the coupler over the plug - would end up perfect on size - the tip of the igniter would be just below the opening.

Yeah and if the ignitor blows out of the cap it could break her finger! I have seen caps and ignitors blow from cannons...

The cap has been completely filled with epoxy, in turn making it stronger than a normal cap.

damage pics of the cannon using the nail polish bottles as ammo would be exceptionally cool
also if safety with the piezo in the endcap is a big concern it might be possible to obtain an oversized toggle switch shield like they have on detonators and on aircraft instrument panels

Are those rated to shield against pver 10,000 volts?
I think not;)
