you need
  • hydraulic cylinder from the tractor or any other small size having one end and muffled by his side discharge oil line.
  • Epoxy.
  • rope.
  • piece of metal wire.
  • pliers.
  • wooden rod.
  • dense piece of linen or cotton.
  • gunpowder smoke or a homemade mixture on the basis of sulfur, saltpeter and charcoal.
tipping cylinder barrel is practically ready for firing a homemade cannon.Make a ramrod.It is made of a wooden rod of suitable diameter, exactly fitting to the inner diameter of the barrel.Length ramrod exceed barrel length of 0.5 m.
The metal can pour the po
wder mixture.With a wooden stick (eg branches) plug the hole of the oil pipe at the bottom of the cylinder.Place the cylinder upright "muzzle" up and fill in a powder mixture of 1 cm above the opening of the oil pipe.The mixture tamp ramrod.
Take 2-3 layer or piece of linen or cotton fabric and ramrod stuffed it into the barrel until it stops.Seal the charge of a few strokes of the ramrod.In this case, a piece of cloth will act as a wad.Then pull out the oil pipe wooden peg.The gun can be considered as charged.
steel wire bend the L-shaped bracket, which has a short piece must be approximately 2 times longer than the height of the oil pipe, and slightly grind on the part of the cone.It must freely enter the nozzle orifice.Long section (70-100 cm) can be equipped with a handle in the form of a loop of the same languishing.
before firing cylinder set obliquely (approximately 45 ° to the horizon) in a safe direction to the line of fire there were no people, animals or flammable items.The gun can be mounted on a wooden "slingshot" firmly driven into the ground so that the gun breech abuts the driven into the ground as a wooden stake.
short pointy end of the metal bracket on the fire, heat and quickly insert the tube into the hole.At the first trial the gun this procedure is best carried out of hiding.The gun should make a shot, and then you need to cool down the barrel and carefully inspect it for cracks, chips or any other defects.If they do not show up, you can proceed to the decorative design of the gun.Clean and degrease the shaft.
To make the gun historical form cylinder to wrap the rope impregnated with epoxy resin.So you can create a decorative thickening or tides.After hardening of the resin resulting construct treat sandpaper and paint bronze bronze automotive enamel paint or bitumen.Carriages for guns can be made from wood.If you plan to manufacture carriage, during the winding rope gun recommended immediately to consolidate and even wind and transverse metal tube, which will act as the axis of rotation.
