When your build your piston why don't you use your current sprinkler as a pilot they have to be fricken expensive. Why don't you build a HUGE piston valve piloted with a smaller piston valve which is then piloted by that 2" sprinkler. :D


Because when I build the big piston, it's gonna take absolutely freakin forever to fill. I wanna keep this one for casual spudding.

I don't think you could call this casual spudding. :roll: :D

That's awesome. Is that your video on youtube of a collage of things exploding with a spudgun. The cannon looks almost exactly like the one you posted. Id try and find a link, but youtubes not connecting right now.

Sounds like someone's building a pumpkin launcher? :)

Seriously, very nice work on this. Packs some good "whallup".

Awaiting the showcase thread with more damage pics. :)

I just had a couple damage vids, no photos yet. Once I finish the stand and get rid of the long pipe on the back, I'll get a showcase thread together.
