Detachable/Adjustable Handle

Unread postAuthor: XxtriviumxX » Sun Apr 20, 2008 2:49 am

The other day I was digging out spare pipes and fittings from under the house and I came across 2 ft of 20mm poly pipe. So I brought together any spare parts ect, to quickly make a cannon. I still haven't got an end cap or a fill valve for this one, as I only spent 2 minutes to quickly assemble it. :D

Well anyway holding the cannon was a bit awkward, and I just happened to have a 25mm "U bolt" and a little wooden handle floating around in my room.

The rest is pretty self explanatory... As the title suggests the handle can be moved up and down the barrel, as well as detached completely to suit the operator. :D

Close up of the handle (ran out of black paint :( )

With the handle off

The cannon itself is only temporary for now unless I change my mind, ive been planning to use the chamber and barrel for a combustion (as well as the handle I guess :) )

Edit: the handle alone is quite ghetto, but the overall budget of the gun was $0 :lol:

Round out the handle to match the curve of the barrel would give it more stability. Good idea, I like it.
