The winters here are brutal so i'm gonna give spudding a break until the spring so i'm not gonna be on here for a while. I'll occasionally come on and check out the cannons but for now i'm giving it a rest for a few months. I know a couple of you wanted plans and a stun gun so if anyone wants to get ahold of me, email me at wangpushups@yahoo.com. Thanks and peace.

Whats wrong with Richard David James staring at you?Sure he makes some pretty wacked out electronica music and yes he looks crazy,but it's only there to brighten your day!

I've only ever seen snow twice in my life,It's fires and floods over here no snow...It's lucky to get below 35*c at night even.

Might be too cold in the garage or workshop to do any work, or feel like working.

Fingers... I know I hate working in the cold, especially when my fingers are freezing and gloves are too big to work with.

I can understand the cold weather issue, I have a two car garage with a concrete ice cube as a floor. No heat since this is all an addition to the house. I'll prolly be taking a break after my BBMG thoroughly raped my wallet, the ammo and scope stuff is the final buy, along with the Asco valve deal I'm spending too much money. Plus I start college again on monday with a ton of welding every night and 8 weeks into the semester my daytime TIG class starts. Don't expect me to be around. If anybody has ideas for a high pressure single shot I'd like to hear them though. Until warm weather strikes and 16 weeks of school later, I'll be gone. Oh and I have a robotics team to mentor.

Im still making my combustion cannon, this weather isnt stopping me. Im almost done. I got the propane meter done and now all i have to do is glue it and drill the nails in for the spark gap and file down the fan so it fits in my chamber.

We suspect here in Ohio to get around....2-8 feet of snow and believe me its getting there. I know how youn feel octane.

But its not necessarily bad. i do enjoy some of the snow balls, and forts and skiing. I dont in particular like to cold but when doing activites you warm up fast.
4SPC, My 4" piston 3" porting cannon
