Mrbl-izer ( need a cool name?)

Unread postAuthor: A-98 » Fri Jun 29, 2007 1:41 am

This is my new, fantastic cannon. It is based around a QEV. Unfortunately, it was unexpectedly loud, causing my parental unit to be pissed (EDIT: since remedied).
anyway, instead of another 6,000 words, here are pics (i hope someone gets that)

the whole gun:

the valve to chamber connection:

The barrel mount:

nifty side veiw:

and the trigger setup:

and a few vids of destruction:

unfortunately i hit the weak plastic part, and not the body. darn. it was night out.i had a cool filming setup :) and im sick, so my voice is funky.

so, what do you think? im sorta pissed with my parental unit, and i have to go to bed *sigh* so i typed this fast. sorry for typos.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

I like it. You should call it Steve. Then everybody you meet will wonder exactly who this Steve is until they meet you cannon.

Hi, you have to right click and choose open in new window.

Hi- i was going to boil the handle in oil (how i made the nifty barrel mount) and bend it, but it comfy enough as is. maybe ill do that later. ater grinding the trigger its much better.

Flying_Salt- ZOMG!!! no, way!i was just talking to someone at my intern-ly job, and i said, i need a name, but not a normal name, an acronym maybe. or something like Steve...

great minds think alike ey?

That is one of the sweetest marble cannons on here! The only thing that upsets me, I'm buildng a marble gun just like this. (People prolly won't be as impressed...) Mine uses a piston valve though.

Thanks guys, it means alot to me. i was originally going to build something like this out of copper and make it 200 psi or so, but then i ran out of funding, and my prototype piston was terrible. i wanted to get it machined out of Aluminum. and the ipod was dead. bad hard drive

EDIT: crap, i posted this in discussion. can a mod put it in showcase?
