The Beast

Unread postAuthor: theexp » Mon Mar 14, 2005 7:00 pm

<div align="center">THE BEAST

I added the Propane injection system, interchangable barrels, paint,with 2 diff sparkstrips I can interchange, and Wire coverings with shrink wrap.

I am thinking of making the retractable hosing shorter, and attaching the cylander to the barrel or the bottom of the cannon.

OR do the same with diff strait hosing

I edited the title. Don't forget that since you are still the actual poster of this thread, you can edit the post yourself :)

That is a very nice spud gun. I think my next creation will have removable breech loading barrels and possible propane injection. I have a gadget at present that injects propane but is is'nt onboard. I fill a small 12" or so plastic air pump ( clear plastic) from the tank and then insert it into the cannon via a tire valve. It works good.

the best place to buy clear pvc is from joel for $25 a foot, i think that they sell some on mcmaster for less per foot, but you have to buy like 100 feet of it

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08
