I was gonna enter this context with my coaxial barrel sealer i just finished today....

But some things on there made me cringe such as an electric fence powered by a CRT monitor and a pneumatic spud gun constructed of pvc and stuck together with hot glue....

But don't get me wrong, some things on there are cool and i will hopefully make one day.

Instructions are there and what not, but i'll doubt anyone will have the knowledge to know how to build it.


Edit:

How long does it take to show up on the Launch_it page?
Doesn't seem to be many entries...

Your project is in the system, but it hasn't showed up yet because it had some key words that flagged it for quarantine.

I'm running out the door now, but I can talk more about it tonight or tomorrow to help you out with it.

Also, the "Launch it" in the title is optional.

What kinds of key words flag something for quarantine?

Yeah, it might have rabies, and we really don't want an outbreak of rabies on the internet.

I've done both, I advertise spudfiles alot more then you think, all my youtube video's, other forums I post my cannons on just to show it off etc.

On some forums I have a few thousand views on my topic, so thats a few thousand people getting told that if they want to know how to make one, drop in to spudfiles.com.

I do what I can to help advertise SpudFiles for free.

There's this NZ guy I saw on some gun forum, and he made a .22 gun that looks like a pen, all machined perfectly, its even bolt action. I sent him an email and told him to drop by, so hopefully he will.

This is the gun:

I know its a real firearm, and this is a spudgun website, but he may have some great idea's and he could move onto spudguns :P

I just got back from a day of loading up on tons of free fruit and vegetables and a long bike ride. Lots of farms in the area have more than they can harvest and some will give you organic produce if you just ask right.

And in the middle of that bike ride I thought, "Oh, damn, I didn't explain what quarantine was!"

Basically, there are some keywords or other flags that will put a project on the back burner until we OK it to be put up on the site. I don't know the list, but talking about shooting was likely what did it.

So your instructable is there and it looked good. I'll talk to you some more tomorrow about a few things that would help it. Don't worry about the delay because there's plenty of time to get traffic and I think your title should be effective.

For now I gotta think about what to do with 10 lbs. of ripe tomatoes.

That's incredible construction work that guy's done, but don't the majority of countries have strong laws and regulations for weapons concealed in that way?

But it would be great to have someone (else) who could do that kind of thing here.

From that site:

There's some pretty radical views but it shouldn't detract from the ingenuity of the gunsmithing.

Have you seen this? :D Any guesses as to how it works?
