Those are all Menards parts besides those valves. You are near me somewhere. And that $1 valve story sounds like the one Brian told me about. Are you perhaps the Dan I talked to over the phone about golf ball pipe?

Anyways, you and Brian did a pretty good job on that. I look forward to shooting with you.

Nice cannon and i liek the idea with the sprinkler valves connecter but..a cheaper was to do that is have the too pressure cambers connect with a "Y" shaped peice of pvc pipe then the valve. Alohough i see how you did it allows more air at one time to flow to the barrel. Good Job!

Yeah, Gort those are menard's parts, and yes he does live close to you. As a matter of fact he lives in the subdivision next to me and I guided him trough and gave him the idea of the dual chamber sprinkler valve design when he told me about the home depot, 1 inch "no drill" mod orbit watermaster valves for $1 deal, in home-room. It was really a spur of the moment thing too. It turned out to be a very nice launcher though, and we just made the barrel support and we will be putting golf ball barrel on there in a few days when I pick it up from you Sean. We actually got creative with the valves, the top half was screwed up on one valve, and the bottom of another, so we've got a crap valve with one good part, the diaphragm. On power, we have not tested it but I'll edit that after tonight when we shoot it at 100 psi.

At least that, and we can only get it to like 60-70 psi, we have to fill a 10 gallon tank with 110 psi to get it up that high too. we're in the market for a compressor thoguh.
