The Light Day Cannon

Unread postAuthor: mattyzip77 » Sat Aug 04, 2012 12:18 pm

I made this cannon this past week out of spare parts and fittings I had laying around. The chamber is 2 inch by 48 inches, barrel is 45 inches 1 1/2 inch sdr 21. 2 inch barrel sealing piston valve 1 1/2 inch porting. The piston is a 1 1/4 inch coupling plugged at both ends with a neoprene face with a few layers of electrical tape around it so it slides properly, and the cannon is piloted with a 3/4 inch diaphragm/q e v valve with a water shut off valve/ball valve with a quick connect. Pics at link below!!! Barrel support is in the making!!
