Help with Mounting pistol grip

Unread postAuthor: crcowboyfan » Thu Feb 23, 2006 9:50 pm

Can someone give me some detailed instructions on how to mount the lighter into a pistol grip as shown in the picture? I would like to know where the wires run at and does this gun use screws to create a spark?

Thanks

Take a Half inch drill bit a drill a strigh hole in a pesce of pipe that fits the Y, then while still in the hole keep the drill running and tilt it to the side the way you want the ingintor to sit, do a little at a time and check it, when done drill a 3/8" hole above the button oon the back side and put your witers there, put a little exopy around the eadge so the fire dont come out.

I just did that for my cannon. If you want it really good then you have to block out the bottom part of the tee(where the handle is) that way you aren't losing any power and its all going to the barrel. To do this you can buy little caps for pvc and just put some calk or plumbers goop around it then put the cap on. If you didn't do this then you would be loosing power and there would be a possibility that instead of shooting out the potato it would shoot out the grill igniter. After you block off the bottom just drill a hole where you want the igniter. Now this part you don't need to do, but you can... take some 3/4 inch pipe (just enough to fit the igniter in) and stick the igniter in the pipe then stick that in the hole and put plumbers goop or anything around it. Then you can just put a hole in the back and have the wires running out and attatch them to the two screws to create the spark.

just make a handle for the ignitor, and use screws for electrodes, the ignitor can leak or launch out of the hole and injure you
