Second Cannon Submission

Unread postAuthor: Rokmonkey » Mon Jun 02, 2008 7:38 pm

Okay, well after I submitted my last cannon and got rawred at for DWV, I went back and looked at my second cannon to make sure it was pressure rated, of course...it wasn't. Not wanting to spend bookoo dollars on all those fittings I had on my tennis ball launcher, I found - from when they were building my home 12 years ago - pressure rated pipe, that had been sitting in my basement on my first cannon I ever made. I hacked it off and used it as my chamber, added my moded sprinkler valve to it and painted it. I did it over the winter, just painted it today though.

My primary ammo was snow balls, which I launched for my dog, after he got used to a big cannon tossing them instead of my arm, he loved it.

During the summer, I will use 100cc water balloons in my sabots, and get my neighbors back for ambushing last summer.*

I'm god awful at painting, snaded it up too much, so Im going to have to add a few more coats of the tan. I tired camo, But i'm just not an artist.

Specs:
Barrel Diameter:
2"
Chamber Diameter: 2"
Barrel Length: 21"
Chamber Length: 25"
Valve: Toro EZ Flo Plus Series
Actuation: Modded for a blow gun

*Note* My neighbors ambushed us around our campfire, they drove up on their golfcart and naile dus with squirt guns, hence why I designed my cannon, as a way to get back.

For someone who claims to be aweful at painting, you've done a fine job at it...certainly good enough for a spudder.

Clean gun there!

The pictures don't show it, but there is a lot of over spray on the tan. And I didn't sand it baby butt smooth, so i is pretty rough and nasty.


Im diverting away from cannons now, been sitting thinking of a pneumatic engine instead.

It's nice and clean :D
I wouldn't like to have the same cannon though... I'm pretty sure I would sometimes hold it the wrong way :D (And have a heck of a pain in my shoulder)
