Nice little site

Unread postAuthor: Maniac » Wed Jul 30, 2008 10:22 pm

I just found this little DYI site and though it was pretty cool and I wanted to share it with you all. The guy has some nice projects. He doesnt have to much in the way of spudding but a simple pneumatic. He does have a "working" blow forward semi auto paintball gun. He seems to be really into small scale tanks. You can also learn how to cook a giant pizza :D

Would that not be DIY site? :P

Interesting site, but the paintball gun isn't much more than the simplest of blow forward designs.
But I'll keep the pizza suggestion in mind...

That's probably a good thing. If I'd been the one in charge of building the gun for that pocket tank, who knows what would've happened?

I believe it becomes a DYI project when the operator is worried that he's only a few kilometres from the nearest house, and that the length of the wires puts him just barely outside the kill radius if something goes wrong. :roll:

Well yeah, you see that's the thing: sure, it's fine to give your kid a rocket powered Jagdpanzer with a gun that fires metal garbage cans packed with a hundred pounds of flash powder. But when his friends come over and convince him to take them out for a spin, and you end up having to explain to the Homeland Security people what exactly happened to that tour bus...
