AYF Piston Valved Cannon

Unread postAuthor: mark.f » Fri Mar 16, 2007 8:39 am

This is a little cannon I made to drag along to Abbey Youth Fest when I went to serve Jambalaya to launch T-shirts. Turns out I can't actually do that, but oh well, I made a cannon anyways. I already posted this on SpudTech, but now I'm bored with only SpudFiles to check posts on so I'll post it here also.

SPECS:
Chamber: 3x24"
Barrel: 2x36", 1-1/2x60"
Valve: clone of first piston valve, 1-1/2" porting
Pilot: 1/4" Q.E.V. with blowgun trigger

I think he means how big is the QEV. Like how tall is it, how wide is it, and how long is it. I have the same QEV, but I'm WAY too lazy to go measure it.

And like I said on spudtech, nice gun :P
