Advanced ghetto mini

Unread postAuthor: theBOOM » Sun Jul 05, 2009 3:36 pm

Hey guys.. Well here is a small little cannon that I decided to build while my mini hybrid was drying...

I am still not done with it beacause I am planning on getting interchangable barrels for it... If someone wants to know how I am gonna do it I will post it up. It will be finished monday probably...

Any ideas on a ghetto burst disc setup I could apply to this mini??

Few specs:
Chamber - highlighter
Chamberl vol - I do not know yet I will probably take apart another highlighter and pour water and see the volume.... You may ask yourself why not do this on the actual cannon and the answer is, beacause I dont want my chamber all wet.. even though it might still dry off but I am not taking chances...

Barrel: I am gonna have several barrels, 4.5 pellet barrel and a pen barrel which fitts bbs nicely

Ignition: I am gonna use a little piezo from a lighter... I made a spark strip with 3 gaps so I can ignite my mix more reliably. :twisted:
It was a pain to get the spark strip onto my chamber.. took about 40 minutes but I am sure it will be worth it :roll: .

At the end of my chamber I epoxied the neck of a small bottle so that I can have a screw on cap :wink: .

Fueling:For fueling this mini I am gonna use a 3 ml syringe... I am yet to put the onboard fueling... (mini butane tank from a lighter)

Pictures of finished product soming soon!
To do list:
Setup different barrel configuration
Maybe a handle for it....
Maybe a burst disc setup (any ideas)?

Onto the pics :P
