Hey, sorry to reply so late. We made the wooden supports with some .5 inch plywood and a reciprocating saw. The template was mocked up before the end caps were put on so it was pretty easy to mock up. Thanks for the compliments. The wooden stands were made by my friends dad, a professional carpenter, and they are for sale for 20 dollars i believe.

fred_roux, you cant build a supah because joel suprise has never released how it is built, and you cant get plans for it either.

nice cannon but 2 things can be done to improve it. one you should get something to stabilize the barrel since it has a massive length on it, and two, the psi guage should be drilled through the endcap and THEN into the body. when you put the guages and things like that on the body, you are weakening the pipe in that spot making a pressure spot and risk it exploding every time you fill it up. but other wise this thing is a beast and looks like lots of fun.

It's a piston valve. Go to the wiki and read if you don't know how pistons or diaphragms work.

That did not help I couldn't find anything on wiki or on the internet. I would still love a discription with a picture or animation.

Thanks,
