Mauler Cannon buildlog+teaser pics

Unread postAuthor: frankrede » Fri Aug 08, 2008 12:11 am

I have ordered a Mauler valve from Sgort for my newest cannon.
It has a 4" by 3' Chamber with countersunk and flush bushings on all the parts to match the valve. It has 2" aluminum cam locks and a variety of barrels.

So you're using a 2" nipple to connect the mauler output to the female camlock? You could've used a female camlock with male threads on there and avoid the nipple connector....you probably knew that... :wink:

Gotta love those camlocks. Are you planning to run past 150 psi in this? The poly ones are plenty strong enough without having to go to the metal ones. The metal ones do look cooler though.

The camlocks were freebies, so I really can't complain:D
I will probably have to get a few poly male connections for my other barrels

Oh no, certainly no complaining about freebies.. 8) The 2" poly males are reasonably costed at $4 each or so at Northern Hardware.

Did you provide any engineering or logistical assistance in its construction?
