handheld hybrid (2.0)

Unread postAuthor: SpudFarm » Thu Feb 21, 2008 5:16 pm

specs:
chamber: 8" of 2" galvanized pipe. "little bigger with all the couplings"
barrel: 18mm copper barrel 6feet long for small marbles.
(defect) barrel2: 1" copper 3feet for big marbles and 100g steel bolts :D
ignition: primitive camera flash and ignition coil.
union: 1"
burst disk: 16 layers aluminium foil at 4x


i converted my hybrid into a handheld launcher for more enjoyment and i ran onto some small problems.

the trigger and safety switch are on the negative side of the circuit board (galfisk said you got smaller risk to get shocked then) before it was like a nightmare when i was in contact with the gun on ignition i got a BAD shock!
i have accidental leand on the meter of the gun and fired today and i didn't get a shock is it a difference on were you hold the gun?
if not i just try it out tomorrow!

tha clean way to hide away all the damn wires!!!!!!!




i will ask on the images' description!


sorry for bad english and grammar :oops:

Great Job!

I'd like to see some damage pics with those 100 gram bolts when it stops raining. I'd say you could take it up to 6x but i'm no expert on hybrids, wait until someone who knows more comes around.

I drilled a hole through a big screw and run a wire in it. the screw is screwed in from the inside so it dosen't pop out. the wire is glued and soldered inplace and the spark jumps from the wire to the screw again!

Nice work spudfarm, it's always nice to see a new Hybrid :P
Can't wait for the damage pics, you should be fine operating this to 6x mixes.
