Observer73's Cannon

Okay. This is my 2nd cannon and it is huge.

It is powerful.

It is a piston exhaust. The piston is custom made. It is a solid plastic rod weighing in at about 3lbs I think. My dad is a machinist so he helped with that.

The front DOES leak horrible though.

This cannon has only been taken up to 50% (if that) power so I don't know the FULL power of that. If you have made something of this size give me some idea of what it can do at full power.

I am also looking for a idea for a stand for this that is portable because I move it in the back of my GMC Safari 88 minivan to my friends house.

I have found the tennis ball barrel from a place here in the Buffalo NY area. I forget to ask if they had a golf ball barrel. I will have to call later.

I am also planning to redo the entire cannon and fix that leak. Better and new and improved... But I must get ready for work tomorrow at the HOME DEPOT!!!
