Iowa State Fair Cannon

Unread postAuthor: iamthewalrus » Tue Aug 15, 2006 11:29 pm

Ok, I just returned from my trip to the Iowa State Fair, I'm an Iowan obviously, and a 4H project outside a building caught my eye. It was a maybe 20ft long pnematic cannon named "Diablo". My question is this: Is the creator of this cannon a forum member? If u are the creator could u please send me a PM becuase i have a question or two about it, thanks.

P.S. To you mods, if this is in the wrong section I'm sorry and could you please move it.

MrCrowley, the store?

Id try your question on spudtech. Seems like there is more of those people that might build such a cannon on there. Although if someone built such and was a member, it mostly would have been posted, and racked 3 pages of reply. So the chances are slim. Possibly try googling for it? Ill do so when I get bored here in a sec...

Mc Crowely. Thoes fittings are not for normal household plumbing (unles you take a really big crap) so they wont be at any old store. I have a store that sells them and they come in crates due to the size and weight. And yes they are way expensive.
