Spud gun plans?

Unread postAuthor: rufus » Mon Mar 31, 2008 7:22 pm

I have a normal spud gun right now, it uses a BBG igniter and I use some cheap car polish crap for the fuel. I would like to build one that uses propane, but I need plans for one that has a meter/regulator on it, along with the propane tank being attached to it like this one: Image
Any ideas?
Thanks.

Searching would get you places you never could have imagined before, but without effort, thou shalt die in the technological world.

lol, just search from now on and read the rules. you can find some really cool cannons with plans in the "how to" section of the site. Here's a good link to some plans for an advanced combustion (with metered propane, like you wanted). The searching took me only 2 minutes, but by now i think you get the picture. anyway, hope you find what your looking for...any questions, you can pm one of us.

Btw, Welcome to Spudfiles!

Actually searching would not help this young person out because if you are not smart enough to look at that whole deal and figure out how that works, apparently you found that particular thread, you really should not be here asking us for plans. There is a certain level of safety and knowledge Spudfiles would like members to have. You can obtain this knowledge by searching the wiki and the forum.

LOL benstern.

Thats a disgracefully amusingly weird picture.


But yeah, no plans is kinda a thing round here. If you want blueprints then it's because you don't know enough about how things work.

If you BUY blueprints you're extremely unwise for not trying to learn enough because anyone staying around here for a month browsing the wiki and other resources will know exactly how any given spudcannon works and will know that anyone selling plans is ripping you off.
