A Question Anyone Can Answer: Glues.

Unread postAuthor: chubster » Fri Jul 21, 2006 10:21 pm

I'm about to build my first cannon and the only thing I don't know is how to connect the PVC Pipe. ( pretty important huh ) So I was wondering what kind of glue to buy and any techniques to attaching them.

Also, what are some ways to blocking off certain parts of the PVC?

Thanks
- Bryan

The picture with a gauge but a schrader valve is the same idea.

What you need:

2" (or what ever your chamber size is) X 1/2" NPT Bushing
1/2" NPT X 1/4" NPT Adapter
Schrader Valve with 1/4" NPT threads

From there on out it should be self explanatory.

Also try searching or reading the Spud Wiki befor asking questions.

Just tap it through a place where the PVC overlaps. or if you have a rubber one, just drill a 1/2 hole and pull it through.
