design opinions

Unread postAuthor: FlyingTaters07 » Thu Jul 21, 2005 8:16 pm

I saw some different types of pipe fittings at my hardware store and made some gun designs out of them. Gun 1 i thought was cool because it had a handle, gun 2 i liked because you could fuel it from the top and have a big fan in the back. what do you guys think? im new so alot of the stuff probably has been done before, i just built my gun yesterday sorry, its messy and hard to read. Thanks, Mark

either would be fine, and i like how you thought of using a large fan and fueling from the top, i dont see why you couldnt do the same with #1 if you used a cleanout on the arm of the wye

i thought of that but i diddnt think it would be practical because it would have to go through the 1.5 tube first, but it wouldnt make much of a diference

that same thought came to mind for me, but then I thought of the fan. The passing air would act as a vacuum and pull the flamable fumes into the rest of the chamber. Your good either way you want to go.
