Mini Pill Bottle

Provided By Lucky13 - <a href="">ht ... atohell</a>

This is my smallest combustion gun. It is made from an old pill bottle, a pen tube, and the clicker from those lighters with the long neck. There is two screws in the sides of the chamber that produce the spark. I drilled a hole in the bottle and glued the pen tube to the pill bottle with epoxy. It cost about $5 and using Oust air sanitizer as a fuel it shoots a Q-tip about 50 feet. This is a good gun for shooting indoors. It is a little tricky to get a good mix cause it needs so little fuel but when you get it right once, its real easy to dublicate multiple times. I wrapped it in electrical tape so that I wouldnt get shocked by the clicker and the screws.

If you can't figure it out from looking at the above images, you don't have any business building something like this. You don't need any "plans".

wood glue wouldnt be nearly as strong as epoxy, most epoxy is rated at atleast 2000 psi

I used wood glue on my first Pill Bottle Mini. It just flakes off the plastic. Epoxy or even Primer and PVC glue to melt the pen into the bottle would work.

im making a pill gun now but i cant get my stupid trigger to jump a spark with a wire, where do u connect the wire, i feel so stupid not knowing how to do this, do u need 2 wires to it , and if so where do they both go, or do u just conect one wire and jump it to a screw? its iritating me.

there should be a little metal piece on the bottom of your ignitor, tape a wire to it and put it on the other screw, thats your 2nd electrode connection

with the ignition? do you mean getting the mix to ignite, or attatching the ignitor? if you're having trouble attatching 2 pieces of metal to screws this hobby isnt for you
