According to your number of posts, I don't think you have enough experience. Then again, Clyde has 9 posts here and over 1,000 on SpudTech. Who would buy a book when they can find the information on the internet? I'm not trying to be critical but, think about what purpose it would serve. A GUIDE would be great but not a book.

you could send a free one to the owners of the cannons, that might encourage some to let you put it in ur book, although I see no reason that they wouldnt want you to put it in as long as you ask them

put stuff like modding a sprinkler valve in it. also maybe this. how to check the volume of your chamber. pour water in it with a measuring cup until its full. record that number. then tell them how to do the formulas to get the most out of their cannon. then repeat step one to barrel keeping in mind about the formulas. (formula like the chamber to barrel ratio for pneumatics)

thats what i did.

From the last posts im getting the jist that your just doing this to help out noobs to spudding. If so I have a idea. You could sell How-DVD's. Just a few subjects I have off of the top of my head:

Modding Sprinkler Valves
BBMG's (both vortex and cloud)
Basic Combustion
Basic Pneumatic
Piston for Pneumatic
Fuel Meter

In these videos you could first just record yourself making one of the above items. And just like any other instructional video you could stop every 2 seconds and discuss different problems you might/ will run into.

Just a suggestion, because it sounds like your down and everything with helping people so this might be a better use of your time. If you just happen to do something like this be sure to take pictures of every important step done to object. Now that I think about it, this is a good idea, but I my little camera is only really for taking pics and can only do like 5 mins of video at a time.
