Pill bottle

Unread postAuthor: bl4ckvip3r » Tue Mar 13, 2007 10:26 am

Hey, today i saw some cannons and thought wow i want to make 1 :p so i looked for something basic and saw a pill bottle blowgun type thing. so i decided to try and construct it when it was ready i added a paper ball into the barrel and sprayed some lynx into the pill bottle and ignited but nothing happened.


here is how i made it:

[Wireeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee]
[screw] ]
[Pen][Pillbottle}[cap] [Ignitor fromlighter]
[screw] ]
[Wireeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee]

Sorry for the atempt at a diagram :p, obveously the wires are joined to the ignitor. And the ignitor is working because i can shock myself with it.

Is the igniter making a spark inside the pill bottle?

Try using less Lynx once you've made sure it is sparking.

nope it isnt sparking between the two pins :s, the ignighters i got where out of a lighter and only had one wire off them, so i attatched a wire to the wire onto the pin, and then attatched a wire to the same ignition wire and to another pin, but for some reason i feel this is wrong :p

Er yeah.... a spark can't travel from one live wire to the SAME live wire.

I've got little knowledge of how exactly single wire sparkers are rigged but there should be another metal bit or wire on the sparker body that is the partner of the visible wire and that the spark will jump to.

For the short answer go to B&Q, Homebase, Focus or whatever your local DIY place is and buy copper pipe.

For the long answer, click on the link in my signature to go to the UK Spud Gun Community forum. I'm in the UK and all the spudders from the UK in this forum I know of are also members there.

We have a whole section on sourcing parts and stuff in the UK.
