Compact Jackass Combustion

Unread postAuthor: frankrede » Sat Apr 14, 2007 10:33 pm

This cannon was built off a 15$ budget and the only parts I have before hand was the 2" pipe, 3/4" sch-80 and the 1/2" sch 40
and those can all be bought cheap too.

The chamber is 2" sch-40. The barrel is 3/4 sch-80 for paintballs and 1'2 sch-40 for marshmallows.
It has a modified lantern lighter for ignition and a schrader valve for butane.btw, does anyone know what butane work with schrader valves?

Nice little cannon you got there. And I'm pretty sure butane will work with schrader valves.

I shot it this morning and there was a bang and a giant cloud of smoke from the barrel, it was like a musket!

If she hasn't seen thisyet, maybe it could serve as some inspiration.

Maybe you guys could team up and go for an advanced propane model of some sort.

Oh and ...kudos on the jackass model. Exchangable barrel is my favorite feature. Why did you name it what you did?

and the paintballs exited fine.

@starman, the cannon was built for the purposes of having a cannon that could be used with friends to mess with and not worry about someone causing too much damage.

I was thinking more about your build challenge...another spray n pray is nary a challenge at all. You can always install short barrels on there to keep the power and possible damage down.
