emailed from previous post on 5/9

responded below 8/2


Dear sir
We are the creators of the video "Mini Cannon Firing and Destroying Targets"
We are sorry we didn’t answer your email but we get dozens of emails every day and
technically we can answer only a small random number of them. Because of that we now
decided to send unified answer to all our emails regarding most common questions:
Is the cannon for sale?
No, beccaus of a legal issues.
Could you tell me how to build one?
The cannon built and works exactly like the antique cannons of Napoleon time or the mortars of the american civil war. Its very simple (Look on the internet and you'll find detailed information).
Now, after you understand how it works, you have to learn basic metal processing technics (sawing, filing, soldering and drilling).
Formulas of gunpowder you can find even on YouTube.
What is the cannon made of?
Its all made of brass whit thin layer of silver inside the barrel to prevent corrosion.
What is the diameter of the barrel?
3.2 mm
Is the cannon home made?
Yes, it produced by jewelry making technics and there is only one of it.
What is the name of the music in the video?
Popcorn remix by M&H Band
Thank you for watching our video

I made one in a few minutes for my son. We used flash powder, and some small 1mm fuse. Mine wasn't as finished, but it satisfied a little boy's need to blast something

a half inch galvanized pipe, a pipe plug and a drill bit will make a "cannon" of sorts too.

His does look nicer though...

My buddy has a machine shop, and we build and welded together a cannon that is about a foot long and built on a steel base. We have loaded up to 750 Grains of black powder. It makes a BIG boom. Ill try to get pics and videos.

A few years back there were some guys building PVC mortars using compressed air. They used pieces of baby diaper to get a good gas seal around cans of vegetables off the shelf in the grocery store. If I remember correctly when they graduated to large cans they ended up getting themselves in trouble. I don't remember the details but the large cans apparently do some damage downrange.

I wonder if these are button rifled?

http://www.spudtech.com/default.asp

After much development and testing, rifled PVC is now a reality.
Range testing indicates about a 50% increase in accuracy for potatoes, and pipe stands up to continuous 300 psi pretty well. This new barrel modification will send potatoes straighter and perhaps most important of all...safer. I say this as I have had experience with a stray potato every now and then, going where you might have not wanted it to go...(through my shop window).
Rifled PVC pipe:
  • Available in 1 1/2" and 2" SCH 40 and 2" SCH 80 sizes only.
  • Six rifling lands equally spaced around the interior.
  • Design is unidirectional.
  • Pressure tested to 300 psi.
  • Range Proven.
  • Continuous lengths up to 60 inches (five feet) long.
  • Optional precision lathe cut potato knife w/ inside 'squeeze' chamfer on one end. (described below)
  • Available in 3, 4, or 5* foot lengths.
  • Nearly seamless unlimited lengths now possible with new indexed coupling system.
  • Ask how you can make a barrel 20 feet long if you really want!




(Joel Suprise previous owner of spudtech.com)
Above is a picture of the massive custom air cannon that was built for the US Dept. of Agriculture a few years back. It's a tornado simulator designed to fire a 12 foot long, 15 pound 2 x 4 at a wall at 100 MPH. Testing this monster was a RUSH!!!! Belive it or not... 22 of these "pneumatic artillery pieces" have been built. Click HERE for a video.

In the past I have made several cannon. I sold a few too.
These are fairly serious: the breech plug goes in with a 20 ton press,
then is welded in. There is a 1" cover plate over that. The tubing
is 5/8" wall DOM high-grade, not water pipe.
My 36" x 1.75" tubes will shoot a golf ball so far you cannot see it.
Lead golf balls are available on the internet, but I have not tried that.

Currently I have 1 unfinished barrel and 1 very nice tool steel blank
which needs to be drilled. There is quite a bit of work required to get
a good, usable result.
