The following are some image links to one of my pic sites; this one in particular has a bit of wood working on it from the past… including some bigger pics of my DVD cabinet still raw and unfinished. The grip handle is one of many I’ve made to be sold attached to the plumbing manfold you see the wood affixed to… It bears noting that the hole in the picture of the hole in the wood, measures slightly over 1 1/2” and that is the entry hole; the board thickness was, if I remember correctly, before impact 5/8”, seasoned and hard, nailed up for the shot…from 80’

This is an interesting piece. What wood is the grip made from?

I’d like to see some detailed plans. This would be a great weapon for defending the homestead from rabid squirrels. (Or just shooting cans at 50 paces.)

do you have many rabid squirrels in your parts? that sure would do the trick,
we play paint ball and a lot guys build them to shot the nerf footballs at tanks, yes they have tanks at some of the big paint ball games but that is pretty cool anyway and i know some paint ballers that would love your work.

Oooh! Very cool. A friend just pointed me towards these air cannon antenna launchers, nominally for putting HAM radio antennas up in trees quickly during emergencies. My partner and I just got our HAM radio licenses, and we’ve got a potato cannon in the shed for visiting kids, but we’re interested in technologies that don’t involve hair spray.

So I, too, am interested in how your dump valves work…

Neat project! Thanks for posting.

By the way, if you put exclamation marks before and after each link they will show up as photos in this blog.

For example:

Take out the spaces and it becomes this:

-- Happy woodworking!
