Spudgun parts in the UK

Unread postAuthor: crazyryan » Thu Oct 23, 2008 6:36 pm

Hey

Can anyone link me to a website where I can find the parts to build a basic spud gun?

I'm only after a basic spud gun, just a tube and a place where you spray the hairspray/ignition stuff.

Thanks

P.S - I'd prefer it if they accepted paypal.

Orr, if there is no place in the UK a detailed list of what parts I need would be awesome because my friend is a plumber and I'm sure he could get the parts for me if he had all the info on size / parts etc.

These two sites from my bookmarks might be useful:

http://www.hendersons.co.uk/Pipework2/index.html
http://www.trssupplies.co.uk/index.php? ... 8076635a5f

As for the detailed lists - we don't keep plans (even the parts lists) on hand, mostly for safety reasons.
It's kind of an idiot filter. It stops people who are dumb enough to do stupid things with spudguns from having an easy ride to getting a spudgun.

Ragnarok - do you have a detailed list that you could PM me?

I don't have a clue what I'm looking for, but I know if I have a detailed list with sizes / names / etc my plumber friend could get the parts for me.

Thank you

I wouldn't keep such lists on hand, mostly because I don't need them. The only time I come up with lists is for very intricate constructions.

There is a page I could link you to - if the site didn't appear to be down. :roll:

Rag, this is WAY off topic, but you better be careful with that sig, I mean no wonder no germans build spudguns, they can't make it I've minutes on the forums with out seeing that!

Here you go... simplest plans around http://dangerouslyfun.com/spud-gun

You can upgrade any part of that to your liking, or looka t posts about pneumatics in teh showcase section.

Trust me, what that sig achieves is hardly anything compared to one of my typical days. It's just a sideline I've got going.

they can't make it five minutes on the forums with out seeing that!

Yeah, I know, my posts actually make up whole percentage figures of the forum as a whole.

@SEAKING9006: DO NOT TRY TO READ IT! People who know what it says have died because of it.

Also, why does everyone resort to Babelfish? :roll:

I got a few to add!


http://www.kiowa.com/Products/Pipe_Fittings you can buy 1m lengths of PVC and ABS here so you can save quite a bit of money (i would spend the extra money on the pressure rated ABS as you can't use PVC in the winter as it becomes brittal in the cold and ABS isn't degraded by UV rays either)


http://www.colglo.co.uk/category.php?cIndex=289_494 and this is where i got my PVC from.

and as for plans, you really need to design your own, it helps you understand it more and you can make it to your specs.

i would read the spud wiki and look around in the combustion showcase for a while to see what kind of thing you want, then buy the parts.

Have you been to http://www.uksgc.co.uk ? Being a UK forum it would be a better place to start off. The BC Arms kit mentioned above would however be a quick and cheap way of getting everything you need without too much hassle ;)

Thats because the owner is a plumber and the average plumber don't usually work with plastic pressure pipe here, it's copper for pressurised lines and the UK equivalent of DWV plastic pipe for waste water.

We've got a few lists there of suppliers of pressure piping (online UK suppliers mostly) but yeah the forum is down for some reason.
