cannon question

Unread postAuthor: spudsy » Mon Jul 31, 2006 9:44 am

I've only built a couple cannons in the time that this hobby has interested me (in other words, I'm new at this) but is there a better way to fire a pneumatic cannon than a diaphragm? As of now it has become a real pain in the a**, having to keep replacing it everytime it tears or breaks. :?

There are many ways, piston, sprinkler valve and a few others. Heres a link to spud wiki, take a look around there because it will answer a few of the questions you are thinking. :arrow: http://www.spudfiles.com/spud_wiki/inde ... =Main_Page

If you are just starting with pneumatics than I suggest that you get a sprinkler valve (very simple) and if you want you can take the time to mod the valve.
