best sites for plans

Unread postAuthor: gmyers2112 » Thu May 10, 2007 6:51 pm

I'm looking for plans for the most bizarre, oversized, smallest, shiniest, loudest, simplest versions of combustion, pneumatic and hybrid shooters, chunkers, tossers and zookas. I'd like to build at least one of each and my creativity has reached it's limit so I'm looking for a giant compendium of plans from the 4 corners of the globe. I hate the idea of paying for plans so they'd need to be free but other than that any plan for a projectile shooter that can be made from Home Depot parts and launched with compressed air or hair spray (or propane) is hunky dory (peachy keen) with me.

Just look around this site and make the cannons you like no plans needed they are easy enough to look at and make.

I've done the search engine thing (80,000 responses??) and I've scanned this site. I'm kind of a plans oriented guy. Just looking at somebody's gun and trying to reverse engineer it doesn't work well for me. I'll certainly try some of them, but plans are better for me than just a pic or two.

If you can't figure something as easy as this then I don't trust you with any spudgun let alone a hybrid.

think man, think! come on, the main part of this hobbie is the creativity and design of cannons.
if you really have lost your creativity, look at real firearms, get their specs and dimensions, and build a cannon as best you can as a replica based on those specs. You got your plans, they're usually free, and you haven't removed all creativity from the equation, and your cannons won't being boring and reversed enginered from other peoples designs.

I've managed to mislay my flamethrower unfortunately :?

...theres just something about when people turn up and in their first posts ask for things like a step by step guide to cannons others spent ages designing and building...

The cannon in my signature was my FIRST cannon and you won't find a single post from me asking anyone for plans. I spent three weeks doing a ton of research without even knowing about this forum.

I bounced ideas and research off members in my other forum as I designed until I got something I liked.

The best thing to do is read, and look at basic cannons. The best way to make uber complex guns with lots of bells and whistles is to first build a very basic cannon. After you do a simple one, you will begin to get the feel of what is required to build these cannons. After a while, you should be able to look a a cannon and say "ah!, that cannon is really easy to build." Keep at it and be patient.
