Taternator II Damage Pics

Unread postAuthor: Dumbascii » Sat Aug 25, 2007 5:01 pm

I finally had a chance to wreck something for the camera. This was a sturdy box made from heavy 13/16 plywood. Operating in hybrid mode, conservative 2X mix Air/MAPP, the short 4' barrel, wax slug as discussed here, about 500FPS velocity. I posted a video with slow frame rate. Taternator II main site.

Very impressive, that's a nice big mess.

So, checking the other topic for a weight, that's closing on 1000J of energy. This cannon of yours will never cease to impress me - and I will remain envious for years. I wish I had the resources to do that.

Novacastrian: How about use whatever the heck you can get your hands on?
frankrede: Well then I guess it won't matter when you decide to drink bleach because your out of kool-aid.
...I'm sorry, but that made my year.
