Big, Powerful and Cheap!

Unread postAuthor: Teucer » Tue Jul 26, 2005 11:21 pm

I built this cannon for a little under $50 and it is very powerful. For reference to its size the two side pieces of the cannon are made from 5 foot pipes. The barrel is a 3/4in pipe that i shoot ball bearings, glow sticks and one time a roll of pennys (very fun to shoot at a piece of concrete and having a shower of pennys fly off, many bent). Also Ive designed it so that you can angle the barrel up and down. I also have a 2in barrel, not shown.

If you think I made this trigger because its safe you would be wrong, because it just looks so good

This is from when I shot a roll of 50 pennys out of my cannon at a Cement block, Sorry Mr. Pres

This perticular penny has an imprint of the backside of another penny on it. Check out his forehead.

very nice, though i'd make a small stand for it, since the recoil might cause the chambers to scrape on the concrete, and the barrel could be longer, its really hurting performance, and i'd mod the valve, hey, great work for a beginner!

he's got a union before the valve, he just unscrews it, and adjusts the height then attatches the union again
