the combustion chamber just might have to meet mr miter saw tommorow
i just got lazy and was getting pissed at the nail gun since it kept jamming.

i may need to think about the octagonal wooden chamber
it definitly needs to be made better than it is now
i dont have any wood on hand though the 4 ft left from the 1 by 12 probably wont be enough
and i am definetly not bringing a 4ft by 8 ft sheet of plywood home on my bike again

A little forced ghettoness there IMO... There needs to be some effort at real construction techniques without actually hitting them correctly...does that make sense.

I like to see people following in my footsteps :)
but i wouldn't try to replicate the crappiness of mine, you've got quality tools, so try to make it a quality job.
After all, i had a hand-drill and a wood saw, and that thing only fired once...

I laughed. Please tell me you have pictures of you hauling the plywood on your bike.

Stupid quote of the now:
joestue "The chamber is rated to 100 psi, it don't say that on the side, but the 2 inch stuff is rated to 300, so by analogy..."
"only the last two feet hear the end is black cellular core"
"I'm taking it to 300 psi"

Oh I know! Make a super dodgy scope out of a few magnifying glasses taped to the barrel, tape a flashlight to it, make a coathanger wire bipod, add a laser pointer (MUST BE SECURED USING CLEAR TAPE AS MESSILY AS POSSIBLE) and perhaps a muzzle break made of cardboard.
LOL that was good


I can't wait to see it on 10X mixes :shock:

i got a friend to help me haul the plywood so one dude was holding one end and i was holding the other and then we rode our bikes leaning the sheet of plywood againt our left arm
whenever the wind came to the right it would just blow us off the bikes
so i had lots of bruises when i got back

wow i dont even know how i would explain to the nurse what happeneed because my 10 x wooden hybrid exploded

Just tell the nurse that you were riding your bike home, when suddenly your plywood spontaneously combusted :roll: :D
