FOOMP

Unread postAuthor: Brian the brain » Tue Apr 02, 2019 9:09 am

Today I decided to get back in the game, ( thanks for your support JSR!!) hoping it will bring me some joy :D Using the 2" brass pistonvalve I took off my confetti launcher that was just sitting and some new 63mm pressure rated PVC, a new QEV and blowgun, I ended up with a compact, go anywhere type little chucker.. Nothing fancy. I added a connector to the muzzle to enable a barrel extension if I so desire. Glue is still curing. I still would like to add a barrel support and a remote hose to the blowgun to relocate it..It will be used at around 4 Bar so expect no world records, just good old fun :wink:

Oh man if you could see the size of my grin right now, great stuff!

... and that grey "European" pressure-rated PVC is bringing a wave of nostalgia :D

Is that attachment on the muzzle to allow for a barrel extension?

Yes it is. Quiet shots are optional :D Hoping to take it with me on my brothers boat some day.. Open water..no spectators.. Old school fun. Brings back memories of his "Chappy" launcher..had a lot of fun with that. I borrowed his idea for the extension. This one is bite-sized in comparison :wink:

K.I.S.S...simple one shot deal. Anything that fits becomes a projectile. When it comes to launching this type of thing is more fun. All semi- or full auto stuff..high powered stuff. Technical stuff..In the end it can't beat oldschool

QEVception! You should add a small barrel to the pilot QEV to fire a second projectile at the target :D

Meanwhile yours truly is browsing Schedule 40 PVC fittings online...

Most I can machine over the Sherline's cross-slide is 1.75" so I'll limit myself to 1 1/2" schedule 40, and as to a valve I'm currently torn between a mechanically locked dump valve or a hammer valve piloted piston valve for tunable efficiency, which is a consideration since I'll probably be pumping manually.
