Multi-Purpose Mini

Unread postAuthor: TwitchTheAussie » Fri Mar 02, 2007 11:21 pm

My mini is complete. It doubles as a cloud and a combustion,also a hybrid if I get around to building a barrel with replacable burst disk. As a combustion it shoots about 10-20 meters. I still have to test its cloud capabilities. It hurts bad from a range of 5 meters. :wink:

And some pics:
Whole cannon with Chapstick barrel for AAA batteries.

Yes that is a Schrader valve.

And ignition is just the standard button but its glued into its normal place in the butane.

P.S. Sorry bout my crappy pics I used my computers camera to take the pics. :oops:

To make barrel with replaceable burst disks you could put a larger piece of PVC over the chap stick barrel and put some stretch tight plastic wrap over the cap stick barrel and under the big barrel. you could make the big barrel attach to a smaller one to still shoot aaa batteries. you also might want to thread the big barrel on to the barrel for an easy on and off.

i agree 1mm plastic +high pressure =hurties

just like myself:
48psi+tiredness+marble= big hurties (broken finger & 8 stitches)

dont stuff with compressed air it is unforgiving.
get the pvc !

peace
