My first piston cannon

Unread postAuthor: jsefcik » Sun Aug 28, 2011 2:01 pm

This is my first piston cannon,I always wanted to have one but didnt have the knowledge to build one, so i seeked help from fellow members,
The piston cannon looks really hard to build, but once i get it everything just clicked!!!!!

My specs:
Barrel port is 1 1/2
my exhast is 1 inch
my pilot is a sprinkler valve with a tire valve into the side of it
Sealing face is a rubber washer
and barrel support is a 2 inch pvc scrap piece with a notch cut out for the barrel to rest in held in by pipe clamps!!!

I would like to thank Mattyzip77 for helping me along with the million questions, And most of all Gunfreak!!!!!!
He built the piston and the pvc housing,I just built the rest of the cannon

Tell me what you think guys!!

I dont really have any set psi levels, but for golf balls around 60-100
No damage pics yet, they are not allowed in my town, even if i bring it outside my neighbors call the cops, so i need to wait to go to private land.Ill post some damage pics when i get the chance


and matty thanks for the reminder about the trees almost forgot about them lol
