In celebration of my first machined part, I was feeling ambitious and was in the mood to get a headache from PVC cement fumes. Yeah... so I cemented the chamber pipe and the breech/receiver. With this completed, I can now work on the carriage, cradle, recoil system, and electronics.

I should have video recorded this process; I literally jumped on top of the receiver and saddled it like the bomb in Dr. Strangelove. :)

Any way you could snap a pic of the entire thing so far next to a common object for scale?

I was about to suggest the same. Maybe use one of those soda cans they give you on aeroplanes :D

It's the diameter of a typical utility pole, yeah. :) (Depends on what class, but that's a bit technical. Sorry, used to be a lineman)

Won't be as tall; as much as I wanted to use a barrel more than 10 feet, transportation becomes difficult at that point. :(
