But i am going to have my current order shipped, because its small parts. I was going to buy a 5ft section of 4" pipe from mcmaster, which was 23 dollars, but then i went to homedepot and saw 10ft section of 4" pipe for 13 dollars!! So i just went for the better deal, as anyone would do.


Just curious, where are you located? McMaster-Carr has 5 warehouses, just curious which one you're near.

Im near the one in Aurora, Ohio.

I live in Cleveland, Ohio. So after doing some mapquest, i found out that i takes 40 minuets to get there. So i got all my supplies i need.

Just hope one day (probably when im older and out of school, and in my 20-30s) that i can build a massive gun with the power i would be looking for.

Rock on. It's nice being able to pickup stuff, though I get my piping elsewhere, I do get lots of my other supplies from there

I recently acquired some large-diameter pipe that I plan on putting to use.. I think for the sheer hell of it, I will make a large combustion cannon.

But I have no doubt that it will be exceptionally powerful, and also large, noisy, and something I couldn't possibly build, use or store for probably at least three reasons.


You know me well. :lol:

For those that do know however, you should remember that designs do evolve over time, and that this one's been stewing in my mind for quite a while.

ITWOST, I just discovered what may be the ultimate Canadian spudding supply, and it isn't COSSD (which is completely useless for most purposes).


Useless? Ok. You have every right to your opinion. (although the publishers would most likely take issue with your statement)

I find it very useful, and I will continue using it. :)

How do you even use it? It doesn't even have any links to products or prices. Hell, it isn't even a store as far as I can tell. It's just a bunch of links to small businesses that don't even have websites.

And I got my PW handle from McMaster. In hindsight, it was quite the waste of money...

I'm sorry DYI, but I have to do it, you made it so easy. :lol:

[not so redacted anymore] will be a 4" bore, 10x oxy/fuel hybrid using 1 cubic foot of 8" SCH 80 steel chamber


Finding small white text is a lot easier when you use the original black forum display configuration (because the new one is just horrible).

Now tell us the name of the supplier you found. :D

I'd be very worried about detonation occurring in a 3' long pipe filled with pure oxygen and a fuel at 10x atmospheric pressure.
