I second pizlo's notion. If you could make various sizes for common barrel sizes, I could see these being very popular on this forum. I would be interested in some 3" bore (schedule 40) bullets!

Well, these are neat cannons. I cant say it sounds too responsible to sell a cannon you feel was unsafe, but whatever. A few things to help with your problems with consistancy. 1. Experiment with the amount of fuel you are using. Chances are you are flooding the chamber. Most of the time less is mor...

I used a sledge hammer, some greese, and about 45 minutes.

Some people have an easier time getting it in there, others dont. I guess it depends on the manufacturer of the pipe.

That forum thread has the chamber sealer as well. The only difference is it is shown as filling from the pilot side and it has a face seal vs. the o-ring seal againgst the chamber side. Its the concept. If he just went to a store looking for a "piston" valve, he probably doesnt want to mess around w...

http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/piston-valves-explained-visually-t8157.html If this thread still doesnt help for piston valves (you have to make it, in case you were not sure) I would suggest going to the store (an irrigation store, not lowes or home depot) and buying a 2 inch sprinkler valve. Even ...

I wouldnt try to do something seaky like take it apart and mail it. I am sure there is proper paperwork to fill out to take advantage of your liscense. It is still bull**** that you have to deal with this nonsense.

Well, That looks like a fun one to shoot! I bet the convienence of co2 portability is awesome. I had a barrel made out of 1 inch schedule 40 and I found some big marbles that fit nicely in it. May be worth looking into.

Have fun and dont hit them neighbors across the river or lake or whatever.

I do think you need more information for us to give you a better idea. A 1/2 inch tee is around 1.50 and a 2 inch tee will cost around 20 bucks. The price varies so much from size to size. There are too many variables. My copper cannon with a 1/2 inch marble barrel and a 3/4 inch chamber cost around...

It looks like it has been on the battle field a bit :P

So it is just pressure fitted together? Does it ever break apart when firing? Just wondering.

What kind of distance do you reckon you get here?

Yes, it is the Mark 5. It was made in 1971. I plan on first restoring this thing a bit, it needs a new belt and is missing a few small things. The motor is still running strong and everything on it is in working order. I have a thrift store here that is dedicated to home improvement called habitat h...

Check out my new little toy!!!

I found this at a thrift store for $150. It is in pretty nice shape and has all the accessories. The only thing I have left to buy for it is a lathe chuck, which after doing some more research will probably cost me more than this machine. http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v13/jook13/shopsmith.jpg Fo...
