Tyler's SS. Tater Tosser (With Damage Shots)

Unread postAuthor: tylerthetatertosser » Tue May 22, 2007 11:40 pm

I made this gun acctually a while back before winter it was an inline then an over under and then the gun we see today an overunder with an onboard propane metering system. the reason i put the meter on is because my friend was bugging me to put it on. i think the barrel is roughly 3 feet long, the chamber im thinking is about 16 inches. im using a handheld camping fan that works incredibly well for inside the chamber. i hope you like the gun. by the way if it looks shitty its because it is it 6 months old atleast i plan to remake the chamber in the future.

This is the over all gun

The propane metering system

This was a shot at two sheets of osb it went through both sheets and hit a fence.

wow, that is an awsome combustion. looks fairly powerful too. I am looking at it and i am wondering how exactly you fire it. do you fire from the shoulder, the hip, how do you hold it is my question? That truly is a great cannon, i like it very much.

Tyler has some sort of strange obsession with wrapping cannons in electrical tape - I guess it substitutes paint fairly decently.

Looks pretty good, do you have any pictures of the fan setup?

i wrapped it in electrical tape a long time ago. like i said ive had it for awhile before i made metered propane on it.... and the way i fire it is by holding on thr handle with my right hand and hanging on the barrel with my left with the elbows tucked into my shoulder. and i will take some pics of the fan stup.

Nifty. It looks really clean and really powerful. Although, the handle is not covered. Might I suggest a couple layers of electrical tape? :D

Hey looks pretty cool. I am building a gun like that soon.
I got a question though, where do you get those hose clamps and how well do they work?

The launcher is looking noice, I myself may have strayed from the electrical tape, but again that is just me. Barrel support actually looks nice, those are hard to pull off. Just a bit of advice if I may, butt the fittings up against each other whenever they are in close proximity. It is a purely aesthetic choice, and that is all. Looks like you got everything secured down real good, which makes things nicer.

Just had to drop in, and say it looked like a fun little cannon. Again, great job.

FeLeX, although those are commonly referred to as "hose clamps", ones of this dimension are used for dryer vents. (which in all technicality still might be a hose) I think you only see the name sticking to both designs small, and big is because the both use a worm drive mechanism, along the notched metal banding. Anyway, yeah you should be able to find these at most hardware stores.
