I like, well, sort of, I think that it would function better if you used a linear indirect piston exhaust valve, that way you could have used a 3" chamber with a 1.5" barrel, plus the fire power it would have you be amazingly large, my cannon (which I kinda just described) will actually knock me over a 70 psi, I actually have to start to lean forwards to shoot it, then the blast from it will level me back upright, pretty cool!!!!!!

I think that it would fire farther if you change the barrel circumference and perhaps use a 'u' shaped solenoid and scrap the solenoid you're using now, as well as the pvc curve. Of course thats just a thought. It looks like a complete monster!

Sorry for kicking:[
Spudstuff?
Do you know how much a butterfly valve costs?
They cost an arm and a leg basically.
I don't think U shaped solenoids constrict flow if you mod them like mine.
And do a few other mods.Maybe Ill make a tutorial on modding U shaped valves so the don't constrict flow as bad.You have to drill a couple of tgings.
Im not talking about pneumatic actuation, im talking about something else.

Frankrede, ill address you specially, and hopefully the other members of the forum can catch the drift of this convo to also benifit them.

Frankrede, why has it been that you have been tracking down SS's dead posts, and then critizing him? I just got done deleting a few similar posts until I stumbled across this one.

Anyway, SS [SpudStuff] has been perma-banned. At least from this account we will never see him again, so you will never get a responce from him. Surely, hes lurking the forums under another IP or SN, but at least from the 'SpudStuff' username we will not have to worry about him anymore.

Frankrede, how bout you go to a recent thread, eh?
