Flying Salt's paper mache cannon!

Unread postAuthor: Flying_Salt » Sat Apr 28, 2007 5:30 pm

EDIT: My links may not be working. I'll deal with it later, I gotta eat.

Ever since my (in)famous tissue box cannon (which I can't seem to find a link to) there has been a slight buzz about a paper mache cannon. I was bored last weekend so I made one.

It's all pressure rated sports pages, but the weather page was DWV.

I haven't made a barrel yet, because I was expecting it to explode on the first shot. The only problem is that sometimes little pieces peel off on the inside and catch on fire after I shoot it. At least it doesn't fall apart, like my latest attempt at a pill bottle. (My mom accidentally deleted the video of me getting hit with the lid.)

Not much else to say, grill sparker, hairspray (I wouldn't waste my precious butane on that!)

Some pics and a vid

A little off topic, but I've also been having more tissue box fun

Enjoy.

Yeah I'm gonna shoot something as soon as I finish making the barrel. I'm not going to use a pen barrel because it'll probably pop off because its so small. I'm using a marker as a mould to make a paper mache barrel. The only problem is it would be harder to fill because it only has one hole in it. I may have to make a butane injection system.

Sweet, it looks like a baked potato wrapped in foil! Very funny looking ghetto combustion; a job well done.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Use a paper towel tube for the barrel :)
For your next gun maybe try to make a cannon out of a coconut and some bambo.

here's your tissue box cannon, btw.
