Need pics and permission to use them...

Unread postAuthor: D_Hall » Sun Mar 28, 2010 4:26 pm

A couple weeks from now I'm giving a presentation on Vera. As part of the presentation I want to have a slide that has some pictures of spud guns so that I can discuss basic concept(s) of operation. Thus, I am asking for:

1) A high resolution photo of a reasonably simple spud gun of each primary type:
- Combustion
- Pneumatic
- Hybrid

2) Permission to use said pic.

So you would like a spray and pray combustion, a ball valve pneumatic and a (metal/PVC) hybrid? Though metal hybrids are far more common, perhaps it is better to go with PVC because they are usually much larger and perhaps better looking.

I can name a few large metal hybrids if you need them though (SpudFarm's, Killjoy's, DYI's, Larda's for example).

Sgort87 has a nice looking PVC hybrid, i'm sure there are more on the Spudtech archives that you might remember.

I think it would be best if you PM'd them rather than waiting for them to contact you.

Here's a picture of the 2" gun I was working on in 2008. It wasn't yet finished when it was stolen, and was thus unposted. There's one taken on a better angle which I can't seem to find right now...

Image

30x oxygen/propane/nitrogen mix, 2" bore and porting, L72, chamber volume of roughly 6 litres. That's a 36" pipe wrench hanging off the barrel.

Permission granted for the QDV cannons. PM me a email address for both the photos and permission form. No charge or royalty requested.

I have photos of both the Marshmallow cannon and T shirt cannon. Originals are shot with a 2MP Cannon camera.

Some larger sample photos can be seen in the fourm on http://www.crazybuilders.com.

Direct link to the forum thread is here;

Thanks folks, I think I've got what I need (which was really nothing more than visuals to explain the concept of a hybrid).
