Dude... seriously! I currently have four fridge compressors under my desk, haven't bothered connecting any of them because:

- I has hybrids

- I has a 4500 psi SCUBA tank

- I has hybrids

A lot of over engineering for spin stabilising a tennis ball...


You'd have to have a very very fast motor to stabilise a bullet through.

This does work at low RPM, hardly an oblong projectile though.1:47 Min[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LAdj6vpYppA&t=1m47s[/youtube]

Can't you tell some of the digits are missing/the display just shows a bunch of lines? I thought I could tell easily enough from the video, though I originally did think I may have been moving the camera around too much.

I has hybrids to, but for general poking holes in stuff a pneumatic is more fun.

IWOST: the high pressure is messing with my piston sealing face..
I used a half of a brass union for soldering to copper pipes that fits perfectly inside my valve seat to make a bigger surface for the piston to rest on, literally took me all fakkign day!

ITWOST(omorrow): Do what I was supposed to do today, measure my barrel :D

MrC: Haha, that is the ultimate fail :P I have been so close to doing that myself too many times!

YOU FAIL, you have to film the loading process for the pneubs to see the picture!


IWOST: Ordered a compression gauge with a one way push button valve, probably have to add a third even smaller piston valve to the gun to make it sensitive enough though.

10x mix, 130g projectile. The 40lb Mjollnir cannon moved back about 100cm from a stationary position on the ground. The kick up you can see in the video was really surprising; there must be one hell of a muzzle blast as I shot it from about 2m away.

In conclusion, my newly modified piston rocks. It literally takes 10-15 hits from a hammer to get it in to position against the barrel but so far it has opened without problem when a projectile has been used.

Sh|t went flying everywhere.

It's raining melon! Awesome shot, especially the rock flying towards the camera, I'm assuming that after your recent chrony shot it was behind something solid ;)

Haha you think too highly of me, the camera wasn't behind anything... I really should buy some plexiglass but I've become quite indifferent over the fate of my Exilim since the flash and zoom stopped working :roll:

Not sure if I'd still feel indifferent if the lens had been scratched by that rock :D

MrC, how about a CHRONY 2012 campaign lamenting your shattered instrument, where you run around the streets naked shouting at traffic and playing with yourself, because of "dehydration" :D
