el cañón de la combustión de 55mm

Unread postAuthor: jackssmirkingrevenge » Fri Nov 14, 2008 7:32 pm

This is my last planned project here, nothing exceptional or innovative but hey. 55mm bore, 1.30 metre barrel and a 95mm chamber giving a C:B ratio of around 0.7:1 - I'm away for the weekend so it will be tested on Monday.

The endcap is a detail of typical JSR epoxy construction, the end is sealed with a disc of foam cut from a meat tray, over which a roughly 10mm thick layer of epoxy is poured. I added wood screws all around the casting for added strength and adhesion. Ignition is by piezo hacked from a cigarette lighter, I cast a housing using wire wrapped around a foil cup as a contact, in order to make it removable. The second bolt is there to cover a port for fuelling (butane from a lighter refill canister metered with a syringe) and venting.

Test results and damage pics/frustrated rants about another failed project to follow in a few days :)

edit: It works :D

¡Muy bien!

Quiero esto cañon. ¿Lo vas a darme, no?

Grammar is probably appaling, but yeah... good job. How did you connect the chamber to the barrel?

Bona fide JSR Semi-ghetto work - passes muster with me.
Now show us some things poking some holes in other things.

... And now, for your next trick, get your mind above your waist line. ;)

Easy, wrapped the barrel tightly with duct tape (and folded paper, otherwise it would have cost me a fortune if it was just tape alone) to the thickness of the inner diameter of the chamber, glue it in with anything (araldite, PVA glue, silicone sealant) then pour epoxy to about 10mm thickness to seal everything in.

... And now, for your next trick, get your mind above your waist line


Like that's ever going to happen :D

Anyways, I'm off to Lisbon - which to my ill-concealed disappointment, I discovered has apparently got nothing to do with girl-on-girl action - for the weekend, so see you all on Monday :)

Where there's a will, (or is that a Jack?) there's a way. :wink:

Nicely done Jack, robust looking.

Awaiting monday and the damage shots.

Me gusta tu cañón. Tienes muchas cosas para hacerlo. Me parece que la patata va a ir muy lejo. Quiero un canon de combustión pero necesito terminar mi cañón pero no puedo porque no tengo las materiales para terminarlo. Esta es el colmo! Qué combustible vas a usar dispararlo?

What a mouthful :) (Spanish 3 can be useful)

when I saw the title I knew it was from you. :)
Nice idea with the epoxy. In the picture it looks weird kind of pale orange like pumpkin guts.

You need to put a nice spanish-to-engrish warning label on it.


Also, HA!

And to think I was so careful! asshole :D

Can't wait to get back from work to try it out :)

edit: can't get the @#^$&!#$YU^%&#@%Q!!#@@#@!~!!! ignition to work reliably, damn epoxy and its permanent non-adjustable nature! Ah well, 'acksaw time...

something about the wiring of the piezo ignitor being too close and the spark is jumping somewhere else, I've taken one apart and JSRsalmorphisised it, hoping that epoxy is a good insulator we'll see what tomorrow brings :)
