Ladies and gents, I give you... Orange boy!

Needs some finishing and a final coat of paint, though this is proboably going to be lost on its first shot anyway... glad I didn't go for fluorescent pink, otherwise it would have really looked like a female pleasure device!

hahaha very interesting combination of stuff :D It has a poor ballistic coefficient because of low sectional density, but it should still fly a couple of hundred metres with enough pressure behind it :)

I've been there :)

If you only want to make small parts, something like this is compact, precise, well made, reliable and doesn't cost and arm and a leg either:

Compil Casio EX-ZR100


hehe excellent, welcome to the high speed club :D your test shots will be a lot more interesting now!

Proxon I know, but I also lack of space, I should put the metal lathe on my desk ... :(

Lack of space doesn't have to be an excuse, check these compact workshop solutions out! http://www.sherline.com/shops.htm

Damn.. that seems like bang for the bucks... thnx.. did not know of this cheap little baby :-).. think ill look in to that in a near future :-)

On another note, natas - you have machine tools, a nice big combustion cannon and seemingly loads of space to shoot over... maybe some projectile optimisation would be good for you ;)


Neh.. so far im pretty happy with potatoes (remember i have only been spudding for a few weeks, i just build my first cannon) :-)

Just want to have some fun, not kill anything :wink:


I can see me making some kickass ammo at a later stage, i already have a few shells on the drawingboard with changeable steel tips... first thing im gonna make is probably gasoline ammo tho, Bang AND Fire.... perfect :-)
