Ol Painless & Lil Painless

Unread postAuthor: SkunkWerX » Wed Feb 08, 2006 8:22 pm

2 of the older Cannons

Ol Painless, named after the mini-gun in the movie Predator.
"Come on in, Ol Painless is waitin" (see avatar)

Ol Painless began life pretty much as you see it, an electrical solenoid activated Cannon.

3" Air Chamber, 2" Bore, 1" Irritrol Valve, Pop safety, psi gauge, about 6 feet overall length.

The SkunkWerX Fire Control System wiring featured an "Arming" switch and a Red momentary Fire Button.
The idea being, you didn't want to accidently hit the momentary button and have it go off, so, you had the ability to DisArm using the toggle switch, then, when it was safe to Fire, you could "Arm" the weapon, and then Fire it. A nice little safety feature.

Ol Painless was big and cumbersome, so The SkunkWerX R&D Team built the smaller version, Lil Painless. Lil Painless wasn't as powerful, but had a better paintjob. :wink:

Both of these Launchers later got cannibalized, so they only exist as parts of newer guns, ones that The SkunkWerX may eventually, one day, post on line.

Thanks,
The paintjobs become a necessity (more than just trying to look cool) when you are running around in the woods trying to stay hidden.
