I wonder if someone can build me this kind of launcher

Unread postAuthor: metropol » Mon Jul 08, 2013 3:33 pm

Hi!
I wonder if any have something similar to this tennis ball launcher (see link below). Which is capable of shooting like 25 balls in one loading. I would like to arrange the same thing as the gladiators did, see link below. Maybe someone can give me different alternatives and prices. http://www.gladiatorszone.co.u…erzone/

I am playing a sport called floorball and there we use a kind of plasticballs with holes in. Are you able too use them in the launcher then its even better. It weighs 30 grams and have the diameter of 72 millimeters

regards

You will definitely need to hook it up either to a compressor or a regulated high pressure air bottle, that's already pushed the budget past a hundred quid. If you have the spare cash and some mechanical inclination it's possible to build something like this mostly with off-the-shelf parts.

If you want to commission one, I think you would have to find somewhere local as this would be complicated to ship, I'm assuming you're in the UK and customs will probably take a dim view of anything projectile launching...

This is as good a time as any to link to Charlie Brooker's renaming of the Gladiators :D

Oh wow, this just brought back some memories. Well, the American version anyway.
