My first ever cannon!

Unread postAuthor: Goats spudz » Wed Sep 14, 2011 10:42 am

this is my first attempt at any sort of cannon, it has a 1/4" qev piloted by blowgun and filled through schrader to hydraulic pipe, the body is MDF but not quite finished yet, it has a real trigger from a .357 magnum and the barrel is 1/2". it shoots nails with paper cones epoxied onto them, and can go up to 3000psi with the tank i have (although i have only taken it to 500psi. pics :D

One hint, try spacing the links a bit by pressing enter so it jumps it down a line and doesn't make the screen super wide.


Other than the pictures being spread like that its not bad. I like it.

thanks for the comments and i found a way to cut mdf easily without a hand saw if you put a thin abrasive cutting disc for an angle grinder onto a hole saw and attach it to a power drill it cuts quite nicely and leaves a smooth edge, :)
