Spud guns / projectile launchers

Recommended Posts

How do you design them? Do you do it on a computer? Do you use some kind of auto CAD software? Do you design and cut everything by hand?

If you look here you will get an idea of what was behind this one


I tend to use what I have available or find (at work) if I find a long piece of straight tube I think long gun, this is my current build in progress.5a4d57ea1c08f_009(3).thumb.jpg.89f0f31e748e4969d4c360c589653b50.jpg


The layouts/plans I do on my PC with Visio, I do have AutoCad but this is way simpler to use and I can do full scale layouts (2D)




The materials I  scavenge from work, mostly scrap aluminium, they also have a good selection of pneumatic and PCV fittings :happyyes. Yes everything is made by hand, I have a drill press and lots of files.

This is also a WIP, put together from leftover parts I didn't have the heart to throw away.
