oops, I forgot to put the 4 inch to 2 inch adapter on the diagram! :oops: in order to get the pipe to slide through the adapter,you must use a dremel or rasp to grind the lip out of the inside of the adapter where the 2 inch pipe goes through

Thats a big cannon! Well done, especially for someone of your age.
Maybe you could slap on some paint.

One minor note: about time eh? With 1600 posts posting your first cannon... :lol:

Hehe, even some of the veterans accidentally kick up a dead topic!
I'm guessing you came here from the thread about barrel droopage as opposed to the random cannons section, which is unusual. I think this highlights the need for some sort of reminder what you go to reply in an old thread that it's old?
Regardless of how many posts, it's still very advanced for a first cannon, a lovely specimen.

Lol! How the hell. I kicked up a dead topic! :oops:
How did that happen?

Sorry! To compensate this, I will post some neat damage pics soon, hoping you guys will forget this fail. :)

EDIT:

Yes.
The point is that I always open every unread topic in a new tap and then simply read and post them one by one.
I clicked a link in the barrel droopage thread, and fergot to close the tab, assuming it was a new topic.
I was already like: huh thats odd.
