COMBUSTION LAUNCHER TROUBLESHOOTING GUIDE

Just starting to spud and wonder how long your barrel should be? Want to know how to build a better cannon? This is just the place! If you think your question is one of a newcomer, please post it in here. If your question is posted elsewhere, and it's a newcomer's type question, it will be moved in here.

NEVER, under any circumstances, "put ur lips on the end of the barrel and blow"![:(!]

Even before you put your fuel in, the solvent-fumes from a freshly builkt launcher can/will ignite. IF you think about it, this would be equivalent to putting your mouth on the end of the barrel of a loaded semi-automatic firearm with the bolt locked open.

One of the first things (if not THE first thing) that we stress here is safety. And your suggestion (in my opinion) is completely irresponsible.:evil:

any spark will ignite any flammable gas. And is the vapor from abs glue flammable?

I think he just switched to using the flowchart image he posted in his last post, which works fine for me.

The linked pages are indeed not working. I am in the process of getting the guide hosted elsewhere. It may take a few days to get it running again.
