I posted it there because people wanted me to make a build log. As I go on, I'll post pictures there till it's done.

The Pneumatic Cannon Discussion is for discussions and questions.
The showcase is for pictures, which i will posting shortly.

Do what you must, but I've done nothing wrong.

The Showcase is for completed cannons. If you would like to include a build log, keep it in discussion, and then link to it in your completed cannon topic.

Not trying to step on your toes, just trying to enforce the rules. I can move it back if you want.

EDIT: BTW, I love your avatar.

I think your calculations are wrong on the chamber volume. The equation for the volume of a cylinder is piR^2*H. The real chamber volume would then be 2^2*3.14*48~604 cubic inches.

I put in the pipe OD and ID into GGDT and that came out so IDK.

Thanks, and there's actually more to that avatar but it's already pushing it with the bad words so I cut that off. http://media.urbandictionary.com/image/ ... -23242.jpg

yeah...

I still can't figure out how the hell to build the barrel end of the tee.

I look at rmich's americannon and it looks like there's a bushing that the banjo screws into.. but then I know that a length of 3" runs through the middle of the tee to meet the piston.

So how does he manage to get that peice in there and a threaded bushing? I guess he cut off the excess of both but I'm not really sure.





And what's the deal with o-rings.. All I hear is o-rings. What do they do? Where do they go?
