New, improved potato cannon from Steyer Armanents
Filed under Uncategorized
Next improvement is to sharpen a section of barrel pipe to stamp out pumpkin or squash rine plugs as ammo. You can never be too prepared.
If geese are your targets, call your band of Ole Creek militia Gees-stopo, and prepare to march on Binney Park.
Construction aesthetic note:
Purple dye primer for PVC plumbing is only required in CT. The NY clear coat might give a sleeker image. You might try spell checking the photo captions. You’re not as smart as you think with the (e).
Just a hat tip to our former VP
Ummm…. That’ll get you undesirable attention at the airport.
A genuine Steyr (sic) AUG in CT !!!
AUG = Automatische UberKartoffel Geschutz
I take it the T junction is the combustion chamber, the red button is the igniter, and you load through the back? Nice
Fred – right on all counts except loading – it’s still a muzzle loader – the dome at the rear is designed to shape the charge.
Libertarian – I broke Asher’s heart when I told him he couldn’t take the cannon back with him on this morning’s flight to California.
First, nice piece of serious kid hardware.
Second, Asher, and his travelling companions, would have never made it back to CA if he’d tried to get that on a plane. TSA would have confiscated it in a second (to end up in some TSA employee’s kid’s arsenal) and you as the builder along with Asher et al as your mule would be put on the no-fly list as terrorists.
Now you, CF, I can understand as a terrorist (that being the view of upstanding Greenwich realtors), but Asher (at least from his picture with the cat) seemed like a nice normal kid.
It needs a turret mount for your kayak.
You know, Greg, that really would be cool.
White Rain Hairspray? Or Propane?
I’ve been using Aqua Net. CPU, but a reader has suggested a spray bottle with acetone. I’ll try it, now that Asher is a safe 3,000 miles away.
Could it be sent via FedEx or UPS? Imagine Asher’s joy if he found it under the Christmas tree?
Do you load the hairspray in the side projection? The part with the igniter button?
