Tylers Insane Hybrid ( Video )

Unread postAuthor: tylerthetatertosser » Fri Jul 06, 2007 9:55 pm

I just finished my hybrid about 30 mins ago and now i am posting it. The chamber is 4 inch pipe nipple the union is 3/4 inch and the meter is gen 1 its all stell, brass and the barrel is about 80 inches of half inch copper pipe.

This is the whole gun

The meter
Image

This is the mini axe can i shot through
Image

Hame made arrow made of a toilet thing and a bolt
Image

both of these shot were from a old tent pole at a 2x6 and at a fence but a 2x6 behind it both went in over a inch
Image
Image

This was from the toilet thing went right through the phone book

Looks very industrial and very metal :headbang: did you use teflon tape to keep the chamber from shorting the ignition?

no i just used the teflon tape so there would be no leakes when you presureize it... but i guess that helps that i never thought of that.

haha, yeah if you didnt have that teflon tape you wouldnt get a spark(correct me if im wrong on that guys) because the electricity would take the path of least resistance, being the steel chamber.

it would take the path of least resisance but if you look the wire off to the right makes it so it would spark with the chamber

Looks em, kinda like mine. :lol:

Nice job, I like how you went with a smaller chamber than you originally planned to, as this creates a better C:B ratio. I also like the way it is mounted. And to think, I used to believe you were unintelligent. :wink:

Can't wait to help you get it firing tomorrow.

Nice gun, but any particular reason why the union is yellow? Just seems slightly out of place.....

Ooh, paint it yellow and black like a hazard sign. A tank of mapp would look good on it too.

By the way, at higher mixes your spark may start arcing around the teflon tape outside the chamber. How big is your spark gap?
