Well... i was on a big hunt for a BBQ ignition. But a person that works with me ( dont know the word for it, colleug or sometin? ) said they have them at a Caravan shop.

Today i made a f*ckin 80km journey for the igniters :roll:
And yes!! found them. so i Bought two of them. they where not that expensive :) about 7,- euro's.

so i got home, drilled holes put two screws in it. Connected the ignitor.

Stole a cucumber from my dad.. who wasnt happy that al lol.

Put a piece the the barrel, sprayd some butane in it. And firing it. !
And thats the first time that i hear the typical spudgun sound in real life :D

I dont know how far the pieces cucumber flew, but it was a nice flight i can tell.

So it works ! uses different lengtes of barrels, and my conclusion is that my calculation was not good. And need a bigger chamber next time :D

So this is working :) Now i need to get the fuel metering system right.
Purchased allready two ball valves.

One thing is for sure... this "hobby" is getting expensive :albino:

I agree its expensive... but you should try mountain biking, way worse!

Lol hehe... well later this day i bouht a couple cucumbers by my self ;)
need to try a patato next time.

What do you mean does it works every time ? Well is does work frequently.
Sometimes there is to much moisterize in the chamber, so the spark fails.
Then i spray some butane in it.. light it so it gets hot inside :) Then it wil work again. And sometimes the mixture is not right, less or to much.

From the 10 shots it firs 7 or 8 without problems :)

biking makes me tired and its boring :P
but i know what you mean.. but still got tomany expensive hobby's.

That really sucks! Downhill is such a decent sport!

Nah, it would take some serious persuasion to take me away from my pneumatics! I guess I dont want to push it with my dad too, he doesnt like the whole explosions etc story, so I do pneumatics.

This cannon isnt dangarous. it shoots cucumbers like a finger thick. :)

Was searching in a big junk box. Founded a realy small fan like 1,5cm high.

Nah, pneumatics are better than combustion in my opinion! :D (I just said that to make me feel better! :D )
I want to buy a compressor though.
