PVC Cleaner

Safety aspects of spud cannons.

OK here is a story for you. When I built my first cannon and finished everything on it except the barrel I looked down the chamber and pressed the igniter just to see if it worked BIG MISTAKE. A big blast of flame came out of it and burned some of my hair off and left some burn marks. If I wasnt wearing glasses my eyes could have gotten injured. I learned that the PVC cleaner that you put on before the glue is extremely flammable. Just to let you know the dangers of it.

We know that! If it smells flammable/sharp or evaporates quick assume it is flammable. Also read directions.

FYI: The primer and glue are both flammable too.

He means the fumes. I've set one off from the cement fumes before. It scared the shit out of my friend. [:p]
