My first cannon ever.

Unread postAuthor: J29020 » Thu Apr 05, 2007 8:29 pm

Ok guys, this is my first cannon. Its an 86" pneumatic :twisted: . The barrel is 46" inches long with 1 1/2" pvc. The air chamber is 21" inches long with 3" pvc (not counting the small 2" and 1" sections to neck it down.) To fill it with air im using an air compressor adaptor and a drain valve (the ones used to drain water from a compressor) and as for a valve I just have a mod. 1" sprinkler valve.
"Its broken because I built the middle two small :cry: (lowes only had 1" valves) but thats not hard to fix" :lol: Ill have to make some supports for it.

any questions or comments?

AHH!!
Those images are huge! 1mb+ each.
Try to cut the file size down less than 300k or they will probably get removed.
save them as jpgs with ms paint and it should still be decent quality
I have dialup so I didnt even get to see any of them.

It's cool, just open them with ms paint and resize them down to a decent size, even if they are monstrous they will get compressed on the page so there's no need for them to be that big. just cut them down and resave them as jpegs.

Damn man thats a seriously nice cannon. I love the matte finish. And mount it on a tripod or building it a stock would really set it off man.
