Look what I got/macro for dummies

Unread postAuthor: MrCrowley » Wed Sep 23, 2009 11:36 pm

32mm steel ball bearing, weighs about 130grams. Just need a decent barrel and more importantly, target. I'm thinking a fridge, with heaps of wood behind it.

HGDT says about 2000 Joules at 170m/s...anyone want to take bets on if it can go all the way through a fridge? I'm not really sure how tough those things are on the inside...


Also picked up 100, 8.5mm steel bearings.

BTW, if anyone mentions anything about using macro on my camera...I did. Thats what you get for using cheap batteries.

If you're going to put your hybrid behind the barrel then you should have no problems penetratingat all, it's basically steel sheet and insulation.

Don't you mean "anti-appliance buckshot" ;)

Ah, by the way :D :D :D

Yeah, it'll be the hybrid behind the barrel. Probably an 8x mix. Wonder what I can use as a backstop, maybe i'll take it down to the beach and use the cliff as a backstop :D

Haha, if you can get a better photo with my camera and those crap batteries that make the camera always display a 'low battery' sign, I'll buy you a pint :D

That bigger bearing would work in my pinball machine, lol. Yea, I think you can put it all the way through.

You should put a camera inside of the fridge facing straight up so we can see if the light stays on, errrr so we can see the damage from the inside. :twisted: Plexiglass will protect the camera.

If you don't trust the protection of plexiglass, use some one else's camera :shock: !

Tempting, not a bad idea. If everything falls in to place, I might just do that.

Rather, why not lay the fridge on its back (after a romantic dinner :roll: :D ) and fill it with water :D

Don't fancy picking up two fridges from the side of the road, one will do
But they have compressors you can take out of em. :wink:

"Focus on this you piece of crap!" :D



You could also shoot it with its own batteries...

Yeah, I plan on getting at least 2 compressors. I'll have about 2 weeks, so I have time to test them out and see if they're going, if not, they can go back out on the street.

But no...i'm not shooting my camera. It's a perfectly good camera, just with sh|t batteries that are flat.

Then shoot the batteries. I wonder what will be left from a battery when hit by such a projectile.

If my backstop is more than a one-time thing, I might do just that.

[fridge compressor noob] What do I have to do to check the starting relays? [/fridge compressor noob]


JSR,
Yeah haha, but I wouldn't be surprised if it ended up like this even if I didn't mention it :)
