New Low Pressure Launcher

Unread postAuthor: Pookydarts » Tue Sep 22, 2009 4:43 pm

This is the latest launcher I've come up with.
It runs at relatively low pressures but is still able to launch projectiles of varying densities quite some distance... :shock:
It's been cleverly designed to fire in multiple directions, sometimes simultaneously. :?
Tell me what you think!

The fit and finish is top notch! It appears to be a coaxial design, right? Load from one end and out through then center it goes!

These designs can make quite a bit of noise and require a great deal of cleaning before and after shots. I suspect both have to do with the rather large amount of fuel required to keep it running.

I do have to say that this is one of the finer launchers on the site. And the build came so naturally.....

I have two launchers like this myself, but they are broken in and upgraded enough that I've actually considered downgrading :lol:

I had a lot to do with the 'conception' of the launcher, (I hope!) but I have to give a lot, well, most, umm, just about all, okay, ALL the credit for the fine build job to my darling wife.
And she said she'd never understand what I see in spudguns :roll: :wink:

Edit: Time spent making it? Well, I don't want to brag, but it was my quickest build job to date! ...by a long time... ...no, really, it was quick... I'd say it was a record! :lol: :lol: :lol:

edit: Don't lie i know for a fact your wife spent at least 5 months on this build(possibly more) :lol: :roll: :lol: You only spent a few moments, and then she did all the hard work. Although i must note she couldn't have done it without you

happy rag!!!!!!

I wouldn't say there's any guarantee of that at all with modern medicine. The earliest survived birth was at 5 months - although survival rates that premature are very low. (It's about 50% survival at 5 and half months - but at 7 months or more, the survival rates are pretty damn good.)

Anyway, if gestation was over 37 weeks, it's not considered a premature birth - and that's only 8 and a half months. So, 9 months is certainly not a sure thing.

Does that thing kinda look like a big cat to you?

You still have time to enter your new launcher into the penetration contest? Instead of plywood, the box o truth may be how many towels it can soak through. :D

I would vote for that one anyday. Nice build, great presnetation, looks flawless.

Brian already made one, but I'm guessing this one won't be sawn off :D

Congratulations :)
