You probably have either a lean or rich mix in the chamber. I suggest switching to propane metering, but if you do that you might also want to switch from coke bottles and Swiffer handles to better construction materials. :wink:

Axe sucks, maybe not in terms of performance (never used it), but its expensive and stinks like crap. Try butane or propane. Also, switch to using a grill ignitor. The idea of gluing a lighter inside the chamber seems like a very bad idea to me. Grill ignitors can be found new for around $10, or you can do what I do and just swipe them off grills people throw out in the trash. Or, use a lantern ignitor, they are pretty cheap. Stun guns and flybacks would be better, but they would be quite expensive and overkill for this application.

I'd #1 say it's your fault for not trying hard enough, every mini WILL work if there is fuel and a spark...

There has to be the right ammount of fuel in a gun for it to work, you either use metered propane or expieriment with Aerosols (sp? lol)

irwinner wrote:i made 2 mini cannons and they both didnt work. the first one used a plastic soda bottle as a chamber and the handel of a swiffer as the barrel. the second one used a rabbit water bottle as a chamber and the same swiffer handel as the barrel. both of these cannons used a long nose light to ignite them. the fuel was axe for both of theses cannons. can someone give me a reason why they didnt work? are long nose lighters bad to use in minis?



and i paid 30 bucks for the stuff for those damn things. we need to make them work!!

I made an ultra mini using a tylonol bottle and a pen. I used Naptha as my fuel, i just squirted some in, and i had enough for 3 shots.

Ever wonder where they got the name N4Palm? NAPtha
For your bottle, use this stuff called Static Guard. It is really flammable and is very powerful. I made a mini out of a propel bottle, i shot a lead chunk through my wall. I also gave my friends bleeding welts with a airsoft load...

I use metered propane on my mini, and it works like a dream and fires every single shot with a BBQ igniter and a single spark gap. It can also put a Dum Dum lollipop through roofing tin from about 20' away.

INVEST!!!! MAKE A METER AND YOU'LL NEVER HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT SPRAY SH** AGAIN!!!

I have a small meter pipe and a 1/2 x 12" meter pipe, both fuel from the same propane adapter and regulator. I also just made ANOTHER 1/2 x 12" meter pipe with an onboard regulating and input system, so they're not as expensive as you think...
