It looked good until he used ABS cement on PVC. Use the right glue.

Good video here. great way to make that shape with PVC. Is this just for shooting out od the cannon? There is no fuel for the rocket?

Even if there was fuel, it would melt the rocket. As far as I know, this video is good to go, and definitely not a bad tutorial.

As for ABS glue on PVC, its a bone of contention on launchers themselves, but on a projectile which probably only lasts one firing, it's not gonna be too big of an issue.

The topic was posted by PCGUY but it wasn't PCGUY who made them. When this site first started PCGUY started compiling useful links, cannons, tutorials etc and posted them on this forum.

If you read the topic, you'll see that he gives sole credit to whoever really made the cannon/tutorial.

The topic starter already knew there are other tutorials around.

This way is different and easier then using hot oil, hence the how-to.
