Summer projects...

Unread postAuthor: Lockednloaded » Thu May 20, 2010 8:45 pm

I'm done with school next monday, so i decided to start thinking about a summer project as a productive use of time. I have way too many plans buzzing through my head, and I will probably end up doing only one or two. I will be starting on a semi-auto, for now all i have is an air tank and flow control, but i have sourced all of the necessary parts and I am making the total out to be around a hundred dollars. So what does everyone else have planned, i know there are a few in the nerf build off, but I'm curious to see what kind of plans everyones has for builds this summer.

I will be working at a Navy lab all summer, so no free time for me (though I get to use some awesome equipment; too bad I don't work where they have the light gas gun for materials testing [The whole section is for materials testing, I am working on power electronics materials]).
Just a small revamped railgun injector for me, main project is the autonomous helicopter.

I have an internship at UCSB but hopefully will find time for a midsized hybrid, a combustion gb launcher that fits in a golf bag and semi-auto gb launcher, providing I can find a large enough compressor.

Finishing up Superna, probably making a vortex inline for airsoft wars in the backyard, nothing special.

I'll probably make a gb gun... My plan is kinda a mix of crowleys first version (of his most popular) cannons and d_halls john daly...

I'll use a breakdown 6' barrel and a mauler valve... It should be fun.

I also just made a saboted rocket for mah howitzer... I'll post when I shoot that (in the direction of my friends house*(0.55 mile away)) I have a feeling I'll overshoot it at 90psi... :lol: :twisted:




*general direction(No saying it's a bad idea, I've thought it over very well it is plenty safe.), no way to cause damage... Unless it lands on somebodys head... :?

My only planned spudding project for this summer is an airsoft mine, although it is nearly finished already.

My other summer project is a racing lawn mower. I started it last year but after I finished it I decided that it needed to be faster, so I'm hoping to finish it this summer.

Nothing too ambitious for me. There's a new ETG build in the works, but that's just to clear up a fatiguing issue with the insulator. At that point, the ETG will (hopefully) be ready for more extensive testing, and posting on Spudfiles.

There's a lot of shopping in the city, and a good 60 hours of machining between now and then, and I'll likely not get finished the build until August.

I think you should model it after Superna :D
Good luck, GB cannons are freaking awsome. You better have a big range to shoot it though, unlike me :P

I'd like to see if I can build something along the lines of a classic airsoft style BV unit, although a $0 budget and no transportation is a serious problem for the meantime.

I'd also like to experiment with lost foam zinc casting.
