TTAC

Unread postAuthor: PCGUY » Mon Jan 31, 2005 12:17 am

<div align="center">TTAC

Provided By Fiebig - <a href="http://www.geocities.com/fiebigspudguns/">http://www.geocities.com/fiebigspudguns/</a>

This is the TTAC, and damn is it a monster. This cannon has a combined total volume of approximately 313 cubic inches of space to hold compressed air.

At 70 PSI this can blow a brick apart. at 60 PSI it can put a wooden dowel rod clean through a piece of .5" composite board.

However, if you do not know top from bottom, do not use this cannon! otherwise when your friends tell you to flip "THE SWITCH THE SWITCH ON THE BOTTOM" they might think you mean the manual launch switch on the top which automatically fires the cannon. If you think this cannot happen, think again, <a href="http://www.geocities.com/fiebigspudguns/TTAC.html">download this video to see.
</a>

Thanks to 'the incident', two tanks were broken off. The two tanks were mended and reattached with rubber pressure couplings and epoxied in place. During the repair, some severe changes were made. First, a leak in one of the NTP couplings was fixed with Teflon tape. Second, the entire electric actuation system was removed and a pneumatic actuation system was installed. Also, the backs of the tanks were removed and a pipe structure was put in to hold the tanks together better.

Unfortunately, even with all these repairs, the TTAC has ceased to operate. There are still several leaks in the chambers and around the break spots. The TTAC has been abandoned and is being used for spare parts.

WARNING!! DO NOT LET STUPID PEOPLE SHOOT LARGE CANNONS SUCH AS THE TTAC!!

that thing IS a monster. I would be scared as hell to shoot it. That things awsome, i am kinda confused tho. DO you add a barrel on past the sprinkler valve or what. OR do you just have a supper short barrel.

Can you make a paint digram?

I meant the overall design; the three tanks led me to beleive that it was in some way similar. However, i was stupid when i posted this, and as it turns out, the Big Red uses two tanks for the electrical mess that comes with this monster. Sorry. :(
