One quick idea...

Unread postAuthor: viskaren » Wed Jan 07, 2009 10:58 pm

I was making one of my basic combustions, muzzle loaded, and I had an epiphany of sorts. By beveling the end of the barrel, you can just load a potato that would not normally fit down the barrel. The beveled edge would cut the potato as it was loaded, and ensure a perfect seal, every time. By the way, for anyone who remembers me, I'm back :D.

We're just two lost souls, swimming in a fishbowl, year after year. Running over the same old ground, and what have we found, the same old fears, wish you were here.

I don’t mean to jump on the band wagon but that’s pretty much what everyone does now-a-days. You create a shorter more drastic edge on the interior and a longer less dramatic knife edge on the exterior, thus ensuring a smooth easy cut that fits tight.

Cheers! 8)
