my newest and only sprinkler valve cannon

Unread postAuthor: taytayswims » Tue Aug 26, 2008 5:16 pm

I call it the light house

specs.
1 inch modded valve.
2 inch chamber 1 foot long
1 inch barrel 3 feet long

it took me about two days to figure out why the valve wouldn't seal. so I took it apart to find that the jb weld had leaked through the hole from the solenoid. so i had to clean it out then from there it worked perfectly. I have only tested it at about 40 psi. So I cant wait to shoot it up soon.

Let me know what you think

I love these kinds of cannons. I have the exact same thing but with a 3/4 inch by 5 foot barrel. So simple, yet so powerful. It puts wholes straight through 3/4 inch plywood and the fence behind it at 120 psi.
