What's the most ghetto/cheap cannon you've ever made?

Unread postAuthor: PinHead » Sat Sep 08, 2007 1:20 pm

Mine would probably have to be the one that I made at work the other day while I was bored. I found a scrap piece of 3/4" ID steel tubing about a foot long, so I heated up the end and melted it into the cap of a powerade bottle, then sealed it with good ol' duct tape. Ignition was done with a small hole in the end of the bottle, using flame from a lighter, or a red hot tip of welding wire. Fuel is about 3 drops of acetone from a bottle I "borrowed" from the paint prep area, and ammo is paper and masking tape wads (breech loaded with eh cap off). Good for trying to hit other guys in my area with a satisfying "thwoomp".

i made one out of a cardboard mailing tube. the projectil stoper was a pencil and the ignition was a hole that i stuck a match in. i launched soda cans about 50 feet.

i also wrapped it in duct tape.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

Flying_Salt built a combustion launcher that used a tissue box as the chamber. That would have to be the most ghetto cannon I have ever seen.

As for the most ghetto cannon I have made; my combustion BB "sniper" takes the cake. It used a soda bottle as the chamber, and the barrel consisted of 6 pen tubes taped together.

People should not be afraid of their governments. Governments should be afraid of their people.
