After Christmas Blast

Unread postAuthor: rna_duelers » Wed Dec 19, 2007 1:43 am

At Christmas time I am going to see my uncle who is very useful for when it comes to spudding,he is a plumber and other things and being a plumber it means cheap pipe/fittings and access to soldering etc. So while this is happening I'm going to get him to weld my chamber for my hybrid as he has a pressure vessel welding certificate.Fix up as many of my cannons as possible and maybe even turn my old compressor air chamber into a combustion chamber for a huge replica field cannon which I plan to shoot my large Ball Bearing out of.What you guys think?The chamber is 21 liters and Most probably will be of the spray n pray kind with a lantern sparker attached to a string for effect of pulling the firing string like on a cannon.

Ohh and after christmas is when I will be blasting things apart with Mr.Wilson.

Well thats usually what I have,with bush fires and all.Christmas time is the prime time for fires around here.

Do you have snow were you are at the moment JSR?


I am wondering one thing,would the huge BB I plan to shoot even exit the barrel?Seeing as I plan to have the C:B around 2:1 for that nice bang.

EDIT:Ohh don't you worry I plan to well document it all,videos especially!

Wait, was it JSR or Crowley that was complaining about people's feet being in pictures a while back? Anyhow...

I think that thing would make a pretty darn good combustion chamber, especially for metered propane.
