Nothing like home made :wink: If it's your finished cannon I can move this thread to the Show Case Section for you. That's where the completed cannons go. Nice work!

Edit: Wow get some compressor oil in the compressor! Your going to loose that rod bearing due to over heating and lack of lubrication.
