Back after time away, does anyone know me?

Unread postAuthor: Casz » Wed Apr 07, 2010 11:54 pm

G'day everyone, good to find the forums still up and buisiness looks to be booming. As you may have guessed Im from the land of Aus and was a member of the spudtech forums until they were closed down years ago. Back then I went by the name "fox_shooter2" and after a quick look around the forum (very quick) I have only recognised DR and PCGUY (Hope names haven't changed ).

Just wondering if anyone else from my era is around? Will continue to look around, keep up the great work and hope to join in myself shortly :wink:

I was on Spudtech from late 2006 to early 2007, but I only had a hundred posts or so, so I wasn't well known.

There are a few original members that come and go, but for the most part, it's all new guys around here. Fullmetaljacket from Spudtech is (incredibly) active on this site; he's now known as jackssmirkingrevenge.

Anyway, allways good with a new (hopefully) active member :)

Well, welcome back to the spud gun community! I used to use spudtech, but not as much as spudfiles. it was a pain to keep up on both, and important threads were often posted to both.

Thanks for the replies, good to be back and feeling welcome. I'll keep an eye out for D_Hall, think it rings a bell. To tell the truth Im finding it hard to remember many names from then. The closest contact I had with anyone was a couple of the Aussie fellas and an older American guy signed "Chewy" who passed on around the end of the Spudtech forum.

Currently I'm still deciding what to look at building, I know it'll be combustion cannon, probably metal construction as larger dia class 12 or 18 PVC fittings cost a bit here. Going for a metered fuel setup, chamber fan, breech loaded (ie coaxial), pretty much a normal intermediate design cannon at the time I left (apart from the steel construction). Wouldn't mind checking out other ignition systems too. Just thinking aloud at present, catch you around the forums later :)

To be honest, that design is still pretty much the benchmark for combustion cannons. They haven't advanced much since the demise of the Spudtech forums.

If you're looking for something different, take a look at our current hybrid designs. They've come a long way since early 2007 when Spudtech was around.

Hey PCGUY, good to see your still overactive re spudgunning :D

Was looking through my old spudgun images, docs and stuff and found Boogiemans (spudtech name) combustion volume/mass calc spreadsheet. Is this the same as the Boogieman here?

As a side note, have been drawing a bit and have a design in mind, just waiting to see if it can be built without weighing too much (aka have to scrounge some appropriate materials).

The original Boogieman got married back right before SpudTech went under and I don't believe he has been around since :cry:

Unless someone else can correct me on this...
