8" PVC

Unread postAuthor: noname » Fri Jun 16, 2006 5:06 pm

A couple days ago I was walking home and I found a piece of pipe. Yes. It's 8" pressure rated SCH 40 PVC. :shock: It's like 15 feet long and holy crap it's like more than half an inch thick. I'm gonna ask the construction guys workin there if I can have it. Don't have any idea on how to get it home....
Just giving everyone a heads up for some HUGE pneumatic since I don't make combustions.

yeah 8 inch fittings cant exactly be found anywhere so you would probably have to order them from somewhere. price of huge fittings + price of shipping something that heavy = verry expensive. man that would be one awesome cannon though.

holy crap an 8 in tee is 80 dollars!!!!!!! the price of just one 8 inch tee and one 8 inch coupler is more than enough to buy a supah valve and thats not even including shipping.

All you need is a 8" coupler, which ends up costing some 55$ or so with shipping.

And some cement intended for large diameters; your generic light-duty stuff won't cut it.

Venting wouldn't be done with the generic "open the back" meathod, though. I'd try getting some flexable drier-vent air-conduit and putting a fan at the end.

These 8"ers are fun man. There are a bunch of neat things you can launch like: soccer balls, video cameras, foam balls, playground balls, and my favotite - human heads!

I found an 8" cap while in KY and bought it for like $8 or something. Maybe less. I have one of these 8"ers on the way!

you could use it for a pneumatic, on my tennis ball cannon, i couldent find reducers, so, the chamber was just some 2.5 inch pipe, 2 endcaps, and i tapped a 1 inch nipple, into one of the endcaps.
