Help with first combustion

Unread postAuthor: Marffy » Fri Nov 13, 2009 8:23 pm

i was thinking of making a combustion but i need some input on what to use.

I was thinking:
ABS chamber and barrel
PVC or wood stock
4inch chamber
Fan
camera sparker
mapp, propane, or hairspray for fuel
over-n-under design
6 screws to create 3 sparks


give me a list on what to use :D

sounds like you've already got a good list started .except try to get sch.40 parts . and try to stay away from bell reducers ( not sch 40) . there is lots of great builds on spudfiles to get ideas from. hair spray isn't the best fuel to use . but do try to meter your fuel.. starman has a great metering setup & i use it too . cant wait to see your finished cannon :D
