Very nice and clean, you should use ~3 feet of 4" pipe for the chamber with that barrel. You may need to sleave a barrel that ling to prevent explosion (bad), and make it stiffer (good).

Nice cannon you got there. Very clean, and the valve looks extremely powerful as well.

I wish I had some constructive critisicm, but I can't see anything wrong (except you need to add a chamber :wink: )

Awesome build dude. Each one of your cannons is a HUGE improvement from the last (and your second was really good too)

I'm rubbin off on 'im. :wink:

Nice job dude. You and Boomer have been advancing really quickly. I assume it has to do a lot with being around me but I cant take all the credit. You two are some smart guys and I'm happy to have ya around.

I know you couldn't have done an o-ring because I haven't had you guys over to use the lathe for over a week. Did you just teflon tape that back cap?

Speaking of 4" chamber, we still have to move the 4" pipe to the workshop. I know Brian has some at his house along with some 3" 80.

After I order parts, I think it's time we build that dual Mauler cannon so keep that in mind and we will find a time to meet up. I wont be available until maybe Wednesday evening. Maybe then we can begin some planning.

Again, nice valve there dude. I look forward to seeing it fire soon.

Good job man, that's the same size im looking to make but I'm thinking I may need a little help, but we'll save that for the day I can go buy parts.
I wish I had somewhere to make kool stuff, how much harder is it to use a metal lathe than a wood. I used a wood for the last 2 years I was in shop and got really good, not what I would call expert because that would be tooting my own horn.[/u]
