STUD-zooka

Unread postAuthor: huse_spud » Fri Jun 30, 2006 10:48 pm

STUD ZOOKA by kyle husmann

stud zooka is a pnuematic launcher that i made to launch heavier and more akward objects.

stud zooka has a 3" barrel for baseballs, t-shirts, and sodabottles & a 4"
barrel for toilet paper and softballs.

this gun is triggered by a 1" rainbird cp-100 and comes with cam lever couplings so i can easily attach and remove barrels.

the launcher is truly a stud. it's power is devastating at close range.

This is STUD-ZOOKA Enjoy!!!

Damn fine! Although your camera sucks.

So clean! Like how everything is setup. Thats quite alot of air to push threw one sprinkler... At any rate, nice job. I usally dont reply to nice cannons that dont break the mold as concepts go, because you cant really say anything, but nice! To tell you the truth I would never thought you could construct such a nice cannon.

Thanks about the comments, and I know, I used my web cam like usual.

But really, who would waste their time on spudfiles if they never planned on making a nice cannon?

I'm glad I've suprised someone though.

I think I might turn part of the chamber up in a 90 degree angle or something to save space.

Why did you put this mega luncher sised chamber realy?I don't know about diafragm valves but if you are able to get more then 1 shot with that chamber, wich is inposible with a ball valve.

The large chamber was necessary so that I could use a large barrel to launch large objects. :roll:

I think you mean "why have a large 4" chamber with only a 1" to fire it".

I was a bit sceptical myself, but it really does fire hard & well.

Maybe it looks larger because it's an inline...

How do I put pictures in the quick replies? I want to show my proof.

The only way I've seen is to edit your post and then do the pictures. And yeah, a 1" sprinkler is kind of small for a 4" chamber and barrel.

Just host your pics. on Flickr and use the img code. More storage, less size limitation.

Oh my goodness! i added a little wadding around my soda bottles today and holy cow what a difference!!!

adds an extra 50 yards to every shot plus it kicks pretty hard too!

wasn't holding on tight enough the first time i added wadding and it smacked my arm pretty hard!

this is getting interesting...

And yes i think the valve is a bit too small but i'm really starting to think it's not harming the performance that much.

would a homemade valve perform better? cause if it could i'd use the sprinkler for a later project maybe.

Try making a valve in a 3" T or something big. That would increase your performance a ton. If you want it to be really good you can use the sprinkler to actuate the 3" homemade. It makes it open extremely fast and dump TONS of air.

3" Tee's are too expensive I think, like $8 for a tee


I love this gun, inlines normally aren't my thing in pneumatics, but this thing looks like a beast....


Try using Styrofoam for wadding for pop cans and paintballls, watch the Beer Cannon montage and see what it does using styrofoam wadding and beer cans :D

To use images you can go to Imageshack.us and upload your shrunken image there and then use HTML code to post the image...

Code: Select all

but put a / in before the last >

Ok i just posted some power proof @ the top so enjoy.

would a 3" tee really be that powerful if it ony had 1" openings?
cuz that's what this gun would have.

but i don't think i need to change anything, this gun was a satisfying success and i was more than pleased with the results.
