A combustion gun I made

Unread postAuthor: Rehab Ralph » Fri Apr 01, 2005 9:59 pm

Same thing again, cant post it in the offical combustions, so ill post it here. Its nothing special. I added a few things to it. I made a potato slicer out of PVC and mounted it on the side of the stand. This way i have perfectly cut potatos.

You can't post in Official because only I can (and BC). Any threads in there started by other people were modified, approved, and moved there myself.

I mosted this to the Submit section.

You could do it either way, it makes a nice clean cut. I used multiple files to sharpen it and saraide the edges, took awhile but its fast and easy and it cuts a clean potato.

My barrel screws on and off and the male adapter is conviniently beveled inwards to squeeze the potato into the breech. Not all male adapters are like this though. Normal sharpening of the barrel just breaks off chunks. Inward beveling makes air tight seals good enough for water.
