So if the fueling system isn't a limiting factor, could you possibly add something like a piston hybrid or ammunition-sealing hybrid setup (as a far future project, of course)?

I think I understand your issue. Current rate of fire is still impressive... though have you noticed any significant heat buildup in the gun itself yet?

Not to ignore your experience, POLAND_SPUD, but I think we can excuse the "ghettoness" for a build so complex and functional. Just sayin'...

Wow, I am extremely impressed.

With the exception of the one brass gatling gun linked to on the first page, every other gatling potato gun I've seen is little more than a pile of ordinary potato cannons duct-taped together.

This, though, this is something unique. Nice work :D .

- the speed of rotation not in accordance with the front of flamme, and the front of flamme while the explosion is coming in contact with the admission ... not so easy too explain sorry.


I'll start by saying, like the others, that this is one damn impressive build!
I think I know what you're trying to say - at high rotational speed, the flame in the combustion chamber has not died out before new fuel is injected - leading the new fuel to catch fire as well. Is that correct?

I don't think I know anyone who deserves this more than you for your INCREDIBLE build! I present to you... the prestigious... Ghetto Award!

It's an image that has been passed around for some time now. I guess someone had to make it in real life at some point. Or spend an unhealthy amount of time in photoshop.

To be honest I think this project goes a bit beyond the ghetto award, it's not a paper bag with a barrel sticking out of it...

Hahah! That bag cannon was quite deserving of the award, but I think this one hit the other end of the spectrum. It's an amazing launcher that makes incredible use of found objects and with professional asthetics.

I have got good news for you guys! As I live in Quebec, Canada, I am exposed almost every day to both french and english. I could do an accurate translation if Ijahman wanted to write a full guide...

@Ijahman: Jamais je n'aurais cru voir une telle débrouillardise et de tels résultats pour un "simple bricolage fait à la maison"! Je crois bien que tu viens de révolutionner le monde des lance-patates!

Ghetto-engineering for the win!

That would be helpful, we see a lot of innovative projects from French members that are sadly missed due to the language barrier.
