I watched the show last night, it was awesome. I guess I now know where the cannon came from. I surprised my grandfather even more by explaining the piston valves on the cannon to him.

supah valve. Suprah is more like the Toyota performance car.

Can I ask how much the piston weights? And you're stopping it in 1 inch?

Even with what seemed to be a ridiculous time frame we accepted the task...


Ha, yeah. You just wanted an excuse to build a really big cannon, and NGC provided one :)

Maybe it's none of my business, but how much $ did this thing go for? 6" sch80 fitting must cost several appendages by themselves.

Be carefull in naming the valves to prevent trademark issues. Martin Engineering has a full line of Tornado and Hurricane Blaster valves. I would avoid using those names.

Mike & USGF;

Another fantastic creation!
The both of you love challenges whether it be the time frame or the complexity.
Great to see some pneumatic creativity!

Was that 10 pots of coffee between you two or just for Mike?

Dewey,

Good to hear from you. Been real busy out here. 10 pots of coffee between us, donuts, pizza, whatever it takes to knock another project out. Could have used your help out here. Take care
