first post : my new combustion& upgrade pics

Unread postAuthor: vardas » Sat Jan 31, 2009 9:14 am

thanks to the many great ideas here i've finally finished my gun
all sch.40 double walled c.b. chamber
. its 81 in. overall
57.25 in. x 1.5 in detachable barrel
dual spark points
16.25 in x 4 in c.b. chamber @approx 121 cu in (best guess)
the cooling sleeve is NOT a silencer , it doesn't really cool any thing either .It's just there to add weight forward of the tripod mount & to look cool. warmer weather will permit actual use & damage pics (soon) I don't care about the optimum c.b.- barrel stats its loud ,powerful ,it kicks ,looks cool that's all i need! Not bad for a simple spray& pray as cash flow permits a fan , meter upgrade is anticipated as the two design parameters of this build were (1) heavy duty, (2) a possible 200 m.p,h. potato!
all comments welcome
p.s. any gunners from s.w n.y. i want to hear from you!

thanks alot vardas scroll down to see pics[/img]

What format are they, and tell us exactly what you did to upload them.

Sounds good, welcome to spudfiles :P

Edit: If your question isn't answered within 3 minutes, don't repost it. This is commonly called double posting and will get your head chewed off in a lot of forums. Keep in mind that even though this is a decent sized forum, people are in different timezones.

Edit: nvm was just me or it was deleted..

Edit: If you're looking for fueling:
Direct propane metering

Cheaper, though more accurate method:
Propane syringe meter

Same theory, but in butane. This is about as cheap as you'll get it at. I use a similar system, except with 10 Ml syringes to fill my minis:
Butane, syringe metering

Good luck

That's a broken link.

OK, upload your pics to Imageshack. After each file is uploaded, copy the "direct link" they give you and paste it inside your post editor. Completely highlight that post link and click the Img button. That will cause the Img tags to appear around your link and the pic to show up with your post.

Welcome to Spudfile! Don't give up...

Nice cannon i like the skull on the back. Is the top pipe an aimer or is it a housing of some sort. What type of ignition is it. It looks sweet can't wait till it warms up outside !

Make sure you reinforce the pvc cap. If you drilled a hole through it for the stock you make it is fairly big hole im guessing. I made a large hole similiar to that for my cannon and i blew it up !
EDIT: i see how you attached it using two screws i like it very comforable.

Thanks for getting the pics up..I missed it the other day. This is one of the best looking and detail laden spray and prays I've ever seen! I like the handles, shoulder stock and paint details. Be sure you get that end cap screwed back in well for each and every shot. You don't want an end cap blow-out that close to your face... :shock:
