Gun Shot

Unread postAuthor: WOW!! » Sun Apr 08, 2007 2:31 pm

Here is my lateist combustion. It is propane injected, chamber fan, and electric sparker from my grill.

It has 2 ignition points, one at the front and 1 at the back.

The chamber is 8'' of Sch40 PVC and then like 14'' of 3'' Sch40PVC. I just made it out of the things I had around. Then there is a 2'' Sch80 union on it, it was supposed to be my hybrid until my friend DWV fittings on it. And then it has 2 90* DWV elbows to a 1.5'' barrel.

I made the support out of some 1/2'' ply and the zip tied it and taped it on there. It does have propane injection, but in the pics it is off because I was changing everything around. Before the tank was mounted to the underside of the barrel and then connected to the meter by a T with a PSIG on it.

The chamber fan is in the back,and the propane is injected into the back, and then the fan pushes it to the front, it works really well. For the fan I just had it attached to my drill battery because I didn't make a box for it.

Overall it works really well, but it is SUPER loud, hence the name gunshot. When I shot it it sounded like a 10gauge shotgun. And then 2 police cars went down my street looking for my I guess lol. It is powerfull too. I prob wont shoot it anymore because of the loudness. I might sell it if someone wants to buy it. But if you do it will not come with the sparker or the contacts.

And I didn't make it to look really good, it was jsut made with things that I had laying around my garage, I did have to get a few things. And the paint was done by my g/f.

Here are some pics, enjoy-

And there are wires all over because I did have a project box and I didnt feel like making one.

Nice throw together WoW. One down fall -- those little red solderless connectors allways corrode and fail! I hate them things more trouble then they are worth. Use "shrink tube" and twist the wires together. It will last longer!!!
P.S. -- Nobody sucks more then Jenna Jameson, ecept maby Brania Banks.

"sucks more then Jenna Jameson" lol

thats a pretty nice cannon i have a suggestion for the next time you paint pvc, use krylon fusion its a little expensive but it gives an plastic a nice even coat. you could be the worst most un even spray painter ever and it would still come out nice

Its painted like that purplusly(bad sp). It looks really good like that with the blue and faded white. You have to see it in person to get a good look at it.

I was going to say, that's an interesting use of the union. Since you ditched the idea of doing a hybrid, perhaps you could use that chamber with different combustion cannons.
