Problems with cannon

Unread postAuthor: gotbass7 » Sun Apr 08, 2007 6:57 pm

i know i ask for help to much, but this could be my last time asking for help. then ill actually contribute. ok so i made my cannon and i put a potatoe in and fired. i heard it but the potatoe didnt leave. i found out that problem, it was because the potatoe didnt make a good seal, the air escaped. so next i put in a new potatoe with a seal that worked. i put in my old spice and it didnt fire and i didnt hear it. i even waited a while. so i kept adding more and more ( when i first started it was like 1/4 of a second). ive done it up to about 1.5 seconds. any suggestions? it could be the fuel because it said "dry spray" and i onno if that hasta do with anything. i sprayed it on my hand and it is very dry no liquid. but it did say flammable

Best thing to do is try it with good old fashion hairspry. White rain works the best, unsented. Idk about the dry spray, but try the hair spray and see if that works.

if you dont already hav a chamber fan you need to get one. from what i understand, the help re-ventilate the air much more effectively than just taking the cap off.

chamber fans help sooooo much they help burn fuel cleaner and venelate much better to cut down on how often you clean the chamber. although i dont have one. :twisted:

Firstly, I just thought I might say this: propane is WAY better than aerosol sprays! And secondly, are you sure your C:B ratio is in proportion?

P.S. I don't really think "Firstly" and "Secondly" are actually words, but I'll use them anyway. I'm lazy and tired right now (It's 11:00 PM) and I wanna go play Excite Truck On my Wii! Yes I am bragging and don't b*tch about it!
