Re: Hacksmith of potato guns?

There are a LOT of related projects that would tkae up time. Belt fed? Also make a "tactical" pickup with it. Even go the extra mile and find some video game theme to back it up. Spotlight a particular machine or design feature for yet another video. I could get a weekly 10 minute video easy. there ...

Re: Hacksmith of potato guns?

I've thought about it, even done some plotting. It would have to take off pretty quick though, there are only a few designs I could do without a decent shop, and I'd need the revenue to go hardcore fast. It would be fun to do eventually but I need more financial stability if I'm going to do it on my...

Hacksmith of potato guns?

Has anyone looked at doing something like that? He gets most of his revenue from ads on his videos, both from Youtube and from his own inserted sponsors. He makes enough to make some pretty big projects, and employ a few people on top of having an impressive shop. I've seen a few such makers make po...

My vague memories of chemistry had them the same.

Re: Calculations related to pneumatic cannon.

The ideal gas law is probably more relevant to this, as it considers changes in pressure, volume, and temperature, all of which happen. You'll probably have to do it the same way I'm looking at when I someday get to more complicated projects--you measure your velocity, calculate your pressures and v...

I found a gatling cannon



Not exactly like how I want to make it, but glad to see I'm not the only one that likes the crazy stuff.

first post and models

I've been prevented from messing with potato cannon for a while now, finances and such. This is looking up for 2020, so I've been looking into designs again. Goals are to get into higher pressure, scratch machining from aluminum (partly because of looking at higher pressure), and repeaters. I made a...
