Macadamia nut cannon

Unread postAuthor: Lewbo » Fri Sep 15, 2006 4:50 pm

this is my first cannon, which is made from this toy foam missile launcher, re-enforced by duct tape. i made a pistol grip, and added a piezo igniter.
i didnt have any of those 'sewer caps' so i cut the top off a pepsi bottle and acctached it to the end with a $hit load of duct tape.

and here is the pistol grip with piezo wired up and inserted into the cannon with two push pins

Yeah, all the stores have this little thing about not selling a lot of things to people under 18, spray paint being one of them.

My advice to Lewbo would be to look around and try to buy spray paint at a small hardware store, or someplace that wouldn't typically have kids buying stuff from it. Like Walmart won't sell me butane for my lighter, but this other store (Menards, a home center in my area) will.
