End cap troubles

Unread postAuthor: Infernal Maveric » Tue Oct 18, 2005 12:06 pm

Hi all,
I have built myself a good 2m tall cannon. The spark works fine and all, but today, after my first test (shooting it dry) the endcap blew clean off (along with the female part of it) so I was thinking that putting evem MORE epoxy on it as well as a bunch of screws/nuts and bolts to secure it. Would this work, or just tear the bolts/screws clean out of the chamber?
Thanks

Mav

it doesn't hold as tight as pvc glue because pvc glue melts the 2 pieces of pvc together
