What should I build?

Unread postAuthor: turbohacker » Mon Jun 04, 2007 6:56 pm

I have all this pipe and previous gun parts laying around, and i was wondering what i should build with it. I also have a few engines. Any Idears?-I meant to spell it that way :D
I also want to buy as little extra fittings as possible :)

You could use the engines to build an air compressor. its pretty much a piston pushing air through a one way valve.

Yeah, but the compressor is pretty expensive and the goal of this post is not to spend money...
Becides i already have a decent compressor, any other ideas?

holy crap! I wish I had that much junk hanging around. My advice is to look through the completed cannons section till you find some thing that interests you then biuld it. From the looks of it you could biuld just about anything with that much spare pipe and fittings.

DUDE!!! I will buy that brand from you! An-ee-wayy... Do you have any idea how many mini pneumatics you could build with all those chambers lying around? Just use you imagination! BTW, is that little duct tape wrapped thing a piston?

A gocart perhaps? Remove the muffler from the 6hp engine, and increase the airflow for the intake. It will be loud, but way more powerful. Heck, you can put two if you want lol. However, maybe you should just use the streetbike engine for that...

LOl. You know, you don't have to have such a large cart. You can easily make one that is smaller with excellent performance if you have a smaller cart. The ones at carting centers go over 40, and their engine isn't much bigger than 6hp. So, given that, you should be able to make a very fast cart with that engine. And besides, that was a very, very heavy cart that guy made.
