Howitzer I

Unread postAuthor: thrasmussen » Thu Sep 14, 2006 8:00 am

Here is another cannon I did years ago it has been a test platform for many new kinds of ammo. Sorry I don't have any updated pix of the shells it fires. But I’ll give you and idea, the shell is about 1' 3-4" long 2" in dia. At the front and 2 1/2" at the base. Only about 4" of the shell actually leaves the gun the rest is just casing used for storing powder for simulated smoke or a glow stick.

At the moment it is just a ball valve; but as everybody knows 2" ball valve like to freeze up easy so maybe I'll rebuild it someday and use a diaphragm system instead.
