Spudinator's Hybrid

Unread postAuthor: PCGUY » Sun Feb 13, 2005 11:34 am

<div align="center">SPUDINATOR HYBRID

Provided By - Spudinator

Took out the good ol' shopping cart turret from my old dual chamber sprinkler gun and mounted my hybrid on it. it has everything including racks for barrels, bins for ammo, bins for burst discs, a battery for the compressor, switch for the compressor, the entire works. now all I need to do is shorten my spark gap, its not sparking every time. The only downfall to this thing is it weighs in at about equal to a Buick. I can hardly lift the front up where the battery is without straining myself more than I should, but thats what wheels are for.

The gun in its entirety

Here you can see most of the operating switches and buttons

Here is the fuel meter, and as you can see, it is integreated into the mounting of the gun, for a very sleek looking meter

<img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/official_pics/452.JPG">

Here is the ignition button

<img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/official_pics/552.JPG">

The switch for the compressor

<img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/official_pics/652.JPG">

This is something I call the "BurstBin" for holding burst discs in an easy to reach place

<img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/official_pics/752.JPG">

This picture shows a lot fo the guns pressurising and fueling systems, the hose connects from the comopressor and fuel meter to the gun. when fuel is metered, it does not go directly to the gun, but into the hose, when the comperssor is turned on, it purges all propane from the hose into the gun, along with air

<img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/official_pics/852.JPG">

There's the igniter tucked under everything

<img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/official_pics/952.JPG">

Here is the big rats nest of wires and hoses, its even worse at the back of it though.

<img src="http://www.spudfiles.com/official_pics/1052.JPG">

This is a ball valve for releasing any misfires, if any, and with the male hose connector, it also serves as the air inlet for using the gun as a burst disc pnuematic

Battery for the compressor

That is incredible. In fact, this has to be the most inventive hybrid pneumatic cannon i've ever seen! I would just have to suggest that you find a better way to transport it around! :D

LOL no I didnt steal the shopping cart from anywhere, I bought it at a garage sale for $3, really lucky find. An hour with an angle grinder and I came out with that.

Thanks for the comments guys, I appreciate them!
