A cannon for a friend

Unread postAuthor: frankrede » Thu Dec 27, 2007 11:09 pm

This is a cannon that I built for my friend Jose.
In my opinion this is the best cannon I have built to date.
I plan on making a clone for myself.
The chamber still needs to be glued, as I am out of glue.
Barrel: 3/4" sch-80
Valve:3/4" QEV
Chamber: 2" Sch-80
Pilot valve: Blowgun

A very clean marble gun, reminds me of some AA batt guns I made only much much cooler. I think I need to start messing with QEVs instead of sprinklers.

Nice cannon... simple, clean construction. I suppose the ergonomics make this cannon your "best to date", for you have built some very powerful and complex spudguns in the past.

Well executed, though I hope you're going to include a support between the barrel and chamber.

Are you in a good mood or did you just overlook the pair of feet in two of the pictures? :shock:

Nice cannon, simple and basic setup which are sometimes the best. Gotta love the reliable cannons. :P

Looks like a great cannon. Your friend should enjoy it!

Well done, that looks real powerful. I would make a support like the others said to preserve its strength.

It's no use with kids today, you can complain all you want but until they appreciate the beauty of a little pride in their presentation for themselves, things will never change *sigh*

Nice gun....the only thing you should do is put some kind of support between the barrel and the chamber.....Just to make it a bit more solid..... :salute:
