The Nuker 1 - propane based beast

Unread postAuthor: Nuker » Tue Mar 27, 2007 10:32 pm

I built the Nuker 1 to be both functional and cool looking. I went to great lengths to deliver on both fronts. There are higher tech propane based spud launchers out there, but this one just feels great when you hold it. It has soft leather grips and is solid as steel. The acrylic combustion chamber lights up like a neon sign when she is fired. The combustion chamber exhaust system makes sure there are no residual fumes and that she fires clean, shot after shot.

Interested in comments

Thanks,

Craig

Wow, Thats one nice clean Propane Metered Combustion! This is top notch great job, i love the paintwork as well...Woah I just saw the Nuker II, that is one sweet cannon, no corners cut.Love th metal bracing as well. Well Done with the FOUR..YES FOUR chambers! :shock:
Only problem I can see is from the side view it looks like you used 4 Wye's to join the chambers if im wrong feel free to correct me. But if those are wye's they are DWV and are not rated for any pressure of any kind.
Great Job! :twisted:

I remember coming across this cannon several months ago, and being very impressed with its clean construction and asthetics. Seeing it now still makes me very impressed with the quality and over look of the cannon. Excellent job.

Good point on the 4 Wye's - never considered it. I have fired that thing over a hundred times @ 100 PSI and it hasn't killed me yet. I would definitely take that potential weakness into consideration on any future builds. Thanks for the comments.
