Mid-Mini cannon combustion

Unread postAuthor: brplatz » Fri May 09, 2008 9:21 pm

this cannon i have not fired yet because i don't feel exactly safe shooting it.
i prefer it not to explode but i wanted to seek help first.

the chamber is from fish oil pills from costco. sanded with 220 grit sandpaper to get all of the sticky stuff off.

it is stronger and thicker than my other mini but quite a bit larger too.

opinions?

That is a cannon i would trust, some things i make look way worse than that, and i shoot them all the time with no worries. that sparker would probably be the first thing that will come out, so add lots of hot glue :D Me and a friend made something similar yesterday. :)

sweet :D

the chamber is more transparent than it looks and its nighttime so i think it will look pretty sweet to shoot. and yes plenty of hot glue was used and maybe more to come!

thanks guys

Note that the hot glue might melt over time.
I once got sprayed up with molten hot glue bursting out of some ghetto cannon. Nothing serious, but scary though.

Cannons the size of this small dont explode, the worst that can happen is just break open and burn you a bit.
