lol I forgot that one.... damn.. that was a long time ago

ok let's start asking MOAR stupid questions...

'what about dammage pics ??'

'why there is no paintjob?'

'do you happens to have some pics or videos of how you built this??'

'ohh I strongly suggest pressure testing it with a pressure washer or dead weight tester... if it fails while filled with liquid you wouldn't have to worry so much about hundreds of fragments travelling at high speed in all directions '
:D

uhmm better make sure that your wife won't see this thread...

Hope there's no DWV parts! :shock:

Nice, clean build though. :)

edit: Don't think I could ever afford to maintain a launcher like this :(

In that case, watch where you're shooting ;)

Silencers are commercially available ;)

Why? This is a low pressure launcher. It requires ventilation and waste disposal. I think this is an application where DWV is perfectly suited. :D

As far as the expense, this is the most rewarding launcher you could ever have, unless there is a failure to launch after high school.

These are awesome. Mine have had some major modifications through the years and eventually became autonomous independent and then self replicating. I am the proud grandfather to several low pressure launchers well into development.

Another launcher that has had some improvements in power and range that does some self maintenance.

This is the best indication of a great launch from a fully developed low pressure launcher. I wish you well.

Hows accuracy?
From my experience with these types of launchers, the accuracy is uncanny. The shot went right where the launcher wanted it to go - which was anywhere on the outside of the launcher.

Is that shot against SF rules???? This appears to be in direct violation of rule number two. :D

Nice shot. Great picture. :)
