Basic Small Copper Cannon

Unread postAuthor: syco kilaa » Wed Dec 29, 2004 5:25 pm

<div align="center">SMALL COPPER CANNON

Ok, this is well... just a basic small copper gun, it is constructed entirely of 1/2" copper and is soldered together. The input valve is a small threaded schrader valve, the firing valve is a 1/2" ball valve, I did not solder the ball valve onto the cannon, I soldered a threaded connection to the gun then screwed the ball valve onto it, this is just in case I need to salvage it to construct another different cannon. I also made a second type of barrel which is sitting next to the cannon in the photo, it is a double barrel (obviously).

I really like this cannon. Clean and simple yet productive. I like the double barrel also...but how's the performance with it?

Why has this old thread been dug up?

It would be pushing up the daisies now if you hadn't nailed it to the perch!
