Steps

Making the Canon

  1. Cut the PVC to the appropriate length.The barrel portion should be at least 24 inches (61.0 cm), but advanced users are encouraged to try various lengths and observe the results.
  2. Use PVC glue to connect adapter piece for end cap one end of the pipe.This will be the ignition chamber end of the gun.
  3. Hammer two nails into the chamber of the gun.One nail should go on one side, and the other directly across on the opposite side of the chamber. There should be around ¼ in of space between the two nail tips.
  4. Connect the grill ignitor to the gun, connecting one wire to each nail.This is most easily accomplished by stripping a section of each wire and then tightly winding the wire around each of your contact points, in this case two nails. Remember, one wire per nail.
  5. Check to see if the ignition is working.To do this, remove the end cap and watch the nails for a spark when you press the ignition button. If you see the spark, you’re ready to start shooting.

Shooting the Canon

  1. Place an orange in the barrel on the side with the outside threads.
    • Warning: Be ready to fire right away after loading and preparing the gun. Leaving the gun loaded for longer periods of time increases the chance for accident and injury.
  2. Spray the hair spray into the end cap chamber.
  3. Quickly screw the end cap to the end of the barrel to hold in the spray.
    • Warning: Make sure the cannon is not pointed towards any people! Have a set target in mind and know what is around it.
  4. To fire the orange cannon, hold the gun tightly and use the grill igniter apply charge to the nails.

Warnings

  • Never fire the orange cannon towards people.
  • Allow the glue to dry for at least 24 hours before using the gun. Failure to do so can cause the gun to fly apart or explode during use.

Things You'll Need

  • A sturdy metal saw to cut the pipe
  • PVC glue
  • A threaded end cap and a PVC adapter segment with threads to fit the end cap
  • Nails
  • A hammer
  • Hair spray
  • Oranges
  • Grill Lighter
  • PVC pipe for the barrel: Inner diameter of pipe for the barrel should the same as the diameter of your orange. You will need at least a 24 in. segment.
  • PVC pipe for chamber: The inner diameter of the chamber should be greater than that of the barrel and the section should be roughly half the length of the barrel, although it can vary. Making your chamber with a greater length and diameter adds more power when you shoot.
