Building the Shmooball cannon

shmoo

We’ve been eagerly anticipating this, [Larry] has published the entire build of the Shmooball gun for 2009. This design is more compact and elegant than the one for 2008 and has a slightly more Ghost Buster’s aesthetic about it.  The pictures are great and there’s lots of good tips along the way. We can’t wait to see what they make next year. How about a gattling version?

    I am so glad I spoke there in 2007, *before* this was made!

    I’ve made plenty of pneumatic canons – and I can say he’s wasting a lot of CO2 – at 100 psi (safe) that storage tank needs only be 1/3 to 1/2 the volume of the barrel, even less for such a small, light schmooball.

    Great design – always room for improvement.
