Whats your favorite material?

Unread postAuthor: LucyInTheSky » Sun Aug 27, 2006 10:09 am

Whats your favorite material to work with? And looks best on a spudgun?

I personaly think copper and brass are my fav. to work with, but I would like to make an aluminium cannon.

If your getting chased off a police dog, try not to run through a tunnel then onto a small see-saw then through a ring of fire. They are trained for that!

Copper and brass looks better and hold more ppressure, but are expensive. Aluminum would be pretty cool though.

im cheap so definately pvc. i would rather it be cheap and a little less durable than to look good as long as it performs the same.

PVC. cheap, proven, durable, readily available, and easy to work with. but for anything over 150-200 psi, I like to use galvanized steel.

Pringles can's and duct tape, quick and easy and disposable!

EDIT: I forgot, you get to eat them nasty pressed potato chips as well.

Well i like our highest pressure rated pvc but i would love some sch 80 for my hybrid it has a rating pressure of upto 100psi more then our highest classed pipe and ours is really hard to get and expenisive but enough bitching..I'd say copper and brass and steel i like there pressure ratings.
