Helping a Dream Come True

Unread postAuthor: Twitch99 » Mon Jan 02, 2006 7:54 am

OK I'm not so new at combustion cannons being able to make them out of nearly anything but my goal has been to build a revved up pneumatic. I am an old hand at designing spud guns but due to lack of funds my dreams cannot come true till I am 15 for a job. Anyway here is my goal I designed a hybrid cannon nothing flashy just down right basic apart from the fact that I based its power racios on that of a 50 cal. its body was very similar and the breech loading system to shoot marbles and paintballs very well.

I'd put up the basic plans but my book was confiscated at school by a teacher. Anyhow any takers on helping me make this hybrid possible if so its greatly appreciated :D

When I was in High School I built a rifle piece by piece in metal shop. They had no idea what I was making until I finally assembled it.

That was back when they were allowed to actually hit you with a wood paddle with holes drilled in it. Man did I get hit a number of times for that. I deserved it to. :D

Today you get expelled and sent to jail for a stunt like that.....

I don't think it wise to take anything to school related to weapons of any type including drawings. Especially these days least you might end up talking with Homeland Security. :cry:

i draw design and talk about my cannons at school even with some of my teachers one of my teachers even made me bring in one of my pneumatics to test for a whole period. he was a bit crazy :twisted: but cool.
i get called a terorist to but oh well
there not going to do anything except confiscate your books at the most or tell you not to do it but every guy draws things in his book at school your drawings just resemble weapons. :D

My teacher told me to bring in my combustion which was cool. He was also a bit insane. The teachers at my school dont care what we draw on our books as long as we do not draw on any school books!

I draw plans constantly its all I do, right now im designing A gun to mount on my roll cage in my truck with motors for windage and elevation and have a camera on the barrel, connected to a tv and a joy stick so I can have a gunner in the passenger seat. and when the teachers see a huge mass of symbols and notes and ask what it is I say it is flux capacitor. never gotten busted yet.

That's a real problem today. We had a fully fitted metal shop. I'm talking metal lathes, arc welders, gas welders, power saws (band-saws), spot welders, vertical mills (Bridgeport's), cutoff saws, and many more tools that I can't even begin to remember. We even had a forge where some of the guys were pouring aluminum in sand molds to make T-shift handles for their personal cars. You actually wanted to learn how to work with the machinery, and they really taught you how to work safely and correctly. Try to find that today.....no way. :cry:
