unposted cannons

Unread postAuthor: SpudFarm » Sat May 03, 2008 12:36 pm

thought there mabe is many nice cannons out there all of you have not posted.

do you have a cannon that you have not posted/is not worth a new topic you can post it here.

also cannons you have found on other sites that is simply nice you can put them in..

videos on sites that people don't look at:
there is many sites on the net with spud gun vids but everyone seems to look just at youtube.. if you have a video that you think few of us have seen you can post it.. (kinda hard to explain)

The first spudgun I ever built. Not suprisingly, nothing amazing, and not even very fun at the time, because it hardly ever worked.

Image

What's left of the old Oxy/MAPP gun that was retired because of repeated cleanout cap failures (the cleanout cap was originally used for venting, before the meter with built in air pump was introduced.

Image

A fun little plinker I built with a QEV from McMaster and a few spare parts. Can't really be used safely over 300 psi or so, and the bore is .787", so as you can imagine, power is rather lacking.

None of these guns could actually be taken out and used immediately, as some parts have been recycled to other designs. There are others (my first pneumatic, a failed steam gun, a 1.5" bore airsoft shotgun, and a hybrid boomstick I'm working on, but they're in such a state of disrepair that photos wouldn't be worth anything).

Hey, that's (about) what I use!!! :P

Heck, I know my cannons are small fries in the world of kinetic energy, but it doesn't stop them being a truckload of fun.
I'm an advocate of energy through velocity rather than mass, partly because it allows launchers to be closer to "the real thing".

To contribute, here's Behemoth - one you might have seen before, although it's not got a thread here:
Image
Basically, a primitive PCP at that stage. On a good charge in the fire extinguisher, I could get around 12 reasonably powerful shots if all went well. With precut spuds, that took a little over a minute to get through.
It weighed a fairly hefty 16 lbs, and was longer than I was tall.

I would post some of my other older cannons, if I had pictures of them - but regrettably, I don't and most have been "recycled".
There's not much point in my posting my ABS combustion, it's practically a carbon copy of any other.

Errr... no :D

Both are taken apart, and the pipe recycled into other things (the pipe was nsf-pw, the fittings weren't).

Personally, I never thought thay were really worth posting here.
