Re: Rate my cannon

That's hydrostatic rating, it's not even rated for gas pressure, steel is the way to go. I have done i...

Tennis ball launcher

Atempting to make a low powered tennis ball launcher, couldn't find a suitable piece of pipe for the barrel so made my own from flat piece of stainless, not perfectly round and has a bit of a seam but I think it will do the job.

Airsoft magazine fed pistol.

Added a gravity fed magazine tube to my air soft pistol, tube holds 36, the tube is removeable to leave a small stub which holds 6. A spring loaded sleeve over the barrel slides forward (thumb operated) to open a cutout in the barrel and let one BB drop in, the tricky part was getting the angle and ...

Re: "In the world of spuds today"

Apparently it was a "hot" loaded round, he was very lucky that one of those lugs didn't kill him. That's what he thought, but there was a bit more going on. The sabot material was building up in the barrel, and the signs where there, he did say the shots were going off target and the recoil felt di...

Re: Semiauto Nerf Rival with no moving parts.

That's the good thing about the soft foam balls, they deform then reform.

A safety valve for pneumatic installation that says 1.8K, how many bar or psi is it? It is a rupture disc of a pressure regulator and I do not understand when it is 1.8K ...
