Unread postAuthor: mike1010 » Thu Jul 12, 2007 11:10 pm

i was amazed to see the price of those commercial guns anyone here could make one for a fraction of that, does anyone have any experiance with these large ones and how well do they work.

Turbohacker sort of has some experiance. He hasn't built anything exactly like those cannons, but he has made several T-shirt cannons for his school.

They're expensive because they are all metal, high pressure set-ups that run off of CO2. Those require a machine shop, and plenty of labor.

I would guess the liability insurance they need to carry must run the price up. They do seem a little steep regardless.

Look how clean they are, businesses don't want tshirt guns made out of pvc with purple primer stains. To have all of that made probably isn't that cheap but yeah they aren't that complicated.

Yes, I have built several t shirt guns for local schools.

My most recent endeavor is an all metal launcher with a paintball gun trigger frame, and a diphrapm valve construction. This entire launcher will cost me less then $120 and is very similar to commercial models.
Ergo, I bilive that they are hugely overpriced aswell.
