My first cannon. Looking for any tips for improvement.

Post questions and info about pneumatic (compressed gas) powered cannons here. This includes discussion about valves, pipe types, compressors, alternate gas setups, and anything else relevant.

Have a look at Hubb's 2" piston valve how-to, since you managed to put together the subject of this thread it should be a piece of cake (sorry...) to put a piston valved launcher togther, and you can use the 1" sprinkler as a pilot :)

Okay, I'm not exactly sure what I'm looking at a diagram of...

That's just the piston, right?

So then this would go inside of a 2" or so tee joint, or am I totally off?



Also: because I haven't mentioned it yet. I named the launcher CAKE because I knew I wanted an acronym name for it, and because I'm such a Portal nut, I couldn't resist calling it "CAKE" for "Compressed Air Kinetic Emancipator" :lol:

That is just the piston. I have a how to posted in the How-To Database to make smaller pistons for smaller launchers.

I had to stop myself from saying your launcher was a LIE!

:D

Speaking of which, you'll probably appreciate this work in progress ;)

Alrighty!

Thanks you guys! This thread quickly jumped from noting that my chamber was not pressure rated to teaching me about C:B ratios and valves. I really appreciate it, and feel very welcomed.
