Tennis Ball Mortar

Unread postAuthor: captaincrash17 » Tue Dec 16, 2008 11:53 pm

Here is a tennis ball mortar constructed from three Pringles cans. These are very simple to make and lots of fun. This is fueled by hairspray and was made in about 20 minutes. Everyone should build one.

if there was a ghetto prize you would win it :lol: At least it won't get confiscated by the police or anything (a problem that occurs in Australia) but the good thing is it must have cost, maybe 15 dollars including the chips and a whole thing of hairspray.. wait is that being held together by duct tape? I guess its OK in this case but lets just say that duct tape is a demon of stupidity here :D hope you don't use it on other guns, and I pray that you haven't tried to make a pneumatic with it! :withstupid: I actually love ghetto guns, making something out of nothing :)

The Duct tape hold the three cans together. How else would i do it, epoxy?? the tubes are cardboard so i thought this was the easiest way.

Nothing like basic ghettoness. Ok so who here currently holds the coveted and infamous "Ghetto Award"?

Sorry for the noob question, but where do you spray the hairspray in ?
I don't really get the combustion chamber and stuff.

Thanks !

well to Finnish this thing up you should drill a small hole in the side or hit it hard with a pen.

and take some matches tape one to the inside and one on the outside of the hole and take the spark strip off a match box and fold it in half so the rough surface is on the outside on both ends and attach a string to the strip and put it between the two matches and it would be an external ignition system like flint all you do is pull the string rubbing between both the matches outside and inside igniting it :D :D :D
