Wood small gun

Unread postAuthor: tghhs » Fri Jun 12, 2009 2:40 am

I had a day off today because my school was having a report writing day, anyhow i was bored and after being on spudfiles recently and i had a attack of got spud fever and just had to make something so this is the result

http://img155.imageshack.us/gal.php?g=12062009.jpg

i wish i had some specs on it but i guess i was just building it off cuff so i dont know the size of every thing but i can tell you the pilot is 3/4 inch ball (obvious) the chamber has a ID of 1 inch (it was the biggest bore i could do) the barral is 1/4 copper tube duno how long (i didn't measure)

atm moment i'm having problems with the piston sealing but hope fully will soon be fixed :D

what do u guys think? ideas on 1 inch pistons would be good too

So... it's a wooden pneumatic?

I think you just one-upped Eddbot. Good job!

As for the 1" piston, I would build it with threaded rod and washers.

I want to see who'll make a wooden railgun. That would be a feat and two halves.

I suppose if we could get a tree to feed off of iron rich soil, it may absorb slight magnetic properties.

It could happpen... in my dreams!

That's one hefty pilot ball valve you have there... :wink:

Love the wood usage...still a little too neat to compare to Edd's infamous ghetto wooden combustion.
