It really isn't all that hard to make something like this look really nice and work well. Theres a reason I spent the 1 dollar on the pipe and fitting for my handle along with the 10 total minutes of work. It's because it looks and functions great.

Why risk having hot air shoot at you when you can drill 2 holes, wrap the wire around some screws and screw em in? Make it even nicer by feeding the wires through a small pipe and mounting the ignitor in the tip of it, and attaching the pipe to the launcher as a handle.

If you still got a stiffy for what you are doing, get a pipe clamp to secure the ignitor to the chamber.

It's because I gotta go out and buy the adapter and it's such a hassle for my parents.

Also I already drilled the 2 holes in and again it's a hassle (and it costs time and money) to buy some more pvc pipes and do it over again.

So to prevent hot air from blasting out of the 2 holes i'm gonna seal it off with pvc primer and cement.

I couldnt agree more. People fail to realize how easy and inexpensive it is to make something that adds function to your cannon while adding to the asthetic factor aswell.

Make a handle, you wont regret it.

Yes, a handle would help. It would reduce the risk of a stray finger resting on a metal part when you press the button... :roll:
