The BAO-585

Unread postAuthor: lukemc » Sun Jun 12, 2011 12:29 pm

After a long hiatus from the spudding industry I decided to make my last summer before college a good one and invest in a top-o-the-line combustion! I returned to good ol' Spudfiles.com for a touch of inspiration, made a parts list, and was on my way!

Construction was slow but as I found more time, it started to piece together very nicely.

Specs
-1/2" gas pipe propane meter/direct injector
-4" x 2' chamber
-1.5" x ~6' barrel
-Custom wood handle
-Bracket mounted chamber fan
-Standard single arc pezio ignition
-Threaded barrel to chamber connection (to be replaced by cams once I find some)


Some pics!

Comments and criticisms welcome =)

Happy spudding!
