stand for your cannon

Unread postAuthor: mikenike192 » Mon Jun 05, 2006 4:05 pm

im looking to build a stand for my pneumatic cannon its just an end round one Image
Im looking to make something that is adjustable for the angle of firing. I need this because its hard to hold and aim with prescission because it is very large about 5 and a half feet and i have to aim between houses about 100 yards away in my subdivision.

So if you have any ideas please post them here pictures would help


PS off topic i just finished this its so much better than my old cumbustion one which only shot like 150yrds. at 50 psi it gets over 300 yrds

You mite be able to mount a trailer jack to the front, the kind with the handle on the side. I got mine from ebay for $32.00 + $12.00 for shipping, it has a 6" solid plastic wheel on a swivel. Maby mount the hole cannon on a piece of plywood with a piece of 4X4 in the middle up front to mount the jack to, they are universal mount, mite work for you, maby. Nice cannon, how much to get all the parts?

Hose clamps will look better than duck tape.

Does that also mean free golf balls? :wink: Just watch where you are shooting them. Golf balls are highly unpredictable. Really.

I'll see about getting a picture of my stand up. It was entirely free, made from 2x4s I saved from being tossed out and some 3" screws I had layin around.

Hah, well, me and a friend were scanning some of our duct tape products to give us good pictures to work with and we decided to scan out faces. I noticed it turned out very well so I use it as an avatar on a lot of things.

Because of that quote alone I'm very hesitant to give you any help.

If you live in a subdivision, DONT SHOOT POTATO GUNS. One will eventually slice (regardless of your stand) and take out a wall/window/car/person :?
