Its Utah, Potatos dont grow there.

Speaking of, I still have not made a trip down there yet, Shooting for next month, but the set of chrome torque stars is no longer available so I might just have to go yardin at the shadier yards

Any questions on how to do this, ask Ben and I. We've made a few in our adventures. We've only gotten it to shoot about 170 yards though...(using hairspray)

All attempts to get a correct mixture of O2 and Ether has failed with the exception of one time when it was just a dummy test fire. I wish the ether woulda worked with a spud.... that woulda been awesome.
While I have never been able to measure the actual distance, I would guestimate that my cannon has a range in excess of 1000ft, using Aqua Net hairspray, the kind in the teal can. This is based on visual confirmation of many hits in the treeline on the back half of my parents property.
Measurements are 20"x4" chamber, with a 4 1/2ft x 1 1/4" barrel, used a quick twenty count spray of hairspray. Ignition is a Coleman lantern flint lighter.
Be careful with ether, that'* powerful stuff. Also, make sure your PVC is schedule 40 or higher, and make sure it is pressure PVC, not drain/waste/vent-only.

Rookies........Use acetylene!!!!!!!! That way they go over a 1/4 mile easy everytime and you have a baked potato when they come back

I don't remember our PVC schedule....But 40 should handle it, but 80'* perfect.

Also, don't use a spin flint igniter, use a VERY WELL SECURED Piezo BBQ lighter for the propane grills....the one you just push the button....First shot every shot trigger there

Hmmm. I saw some chrome Poncho rims at the yard I visited Friday, sittin' right by the door. What do "torque stars" look like?
