The - are 1" PVC Pipe.
The O is the 1" PVC Ball Valve.
The ] is the 1" PVC Cap.
The > is the tire valve.

easy but needs much pressure to perform well
I reccomand to use a sprinkler for a first cannon.
if you can't get a sprinkler go for the ball valve or if you are good with building a piston valve(search if you don't know what it is)

btw welcome on the forum :D
take a look in the pneumatic show case for inspiration

I suggest reducing the barrel size...to 1/2 diameter
You already have a 1:1 CB Ratio, and the barrel being the same in diameter as the chamber.

if you use a 1/2" barrel you can shoot marbles.

spud bux is used to buy signatures and that stuff.

Okay. The only problem is that my 1/2" is thin-walled, so the ID is a little bigger than normal. And where can you buy signatures and stuff? I'm pretty sure I don't have enough money yet, but I just want to know for the future.

I can't believe the user name "spudfiles" hasn't been taken until now....

you would think it would either be off limits or taken like 3 years ago...

all in all, welcome to spudfiles...

Thanks, spudfarm. I chose the name SpudFiles because I usually try to go for the website's name. Other forums, I have tried but haven't been successful. I actually think that this is the only forum I've signed up on where I was able to get my username to be the website's name... And I also couldn't believe that it wasn't taken until now.

By the way, I was also wondering if the amount of spud bux that you earn per post is based on how long your message is.
