New to this, PVC Alternative

Unread postAuthor: Dufman5 » Wed Feb 11, 2015 6:53 pm

Okay so I got these plans from this website. http://thebigmanual.com/t-shirts/t-shirt-cannons/

I purchased everything except the pneumatic valve and trigger. However after browsing your forum I've found that using the 4" PVC for the reserve tank can be very dangerous. What other options do I have to make this safer? Also I'm new so just saying "use steel pipe" won't help me. Be specific if you can. I appreciate all the help I can get. This site can be a little overwhelming.

You get used to it pretty quick if you spend more time lookling around...

Make sure the PVC is pressure rated and use your head while building you'll be fine.
