Pnuematic Delay Mine

Unread postAuthor: elitesniper » Fri Jan 18, 2008 8:53 pm

Hey guys just fished my nifty little project yea i got permisson from pvc arsenal 17 to use this design but i tweaked it just a bit this has a 3/4 sch 40 fireing chamber and a pinhole delay is 5 seconds depning on what pressures and burst disk i use. the whole thing is made of sch 80 3/4 union, 2 inch to 3/4 inch bushing, 3/4 inch end cap with pinhole, 2 inch coupling , 2 inch plug, it fires flour or baby powder for an awsome smoke effect.hope you guys like sorry about the messy primer job i did it real sloppy, anyways enjoy :D

Wow, it looks good, but do you mind if I ask you how it works?

i think its a burst disk coaxial sorta thing. then the round hit the ground it ruptures the burst disk and shoots out what ever is in it (probably bb's) thats how i think it works, i could in fact be very very wrong...

I'm guessing that the chamber inside the end cap fills up slowly through the pinhole and when enough pressure is there it triggers the burst disk. Am i right?

Thats pretty cool but it would seem that only the air inside the cap would be used when the burst disk triggered. Wouldn't making the area inside the cap bigger and the area around it smaller be more efficient?

So it has 25 psi left in the space out side the cap? Does it bleed out if you let it sit there?

Well at least its easy on the pumping

I made one of those, but I got tired of using it and ended up drilling through the endcap on the inside to convert it to a fairly powerful and portable burst disk cannon.
