Last fall I made a large size cannon out of a 20 lb. propane bottle with a short chunk of 4" exhaust pipe brazed into the bottom. A band clamp and 4 feet more pipe was added. (all steel!) The tanks original valve was removed to fuel through with reducers and replaced with a 1/4" quarter turn ball valve to cap it off. The mix should have been set off by the spark plug installed near the fuel opening. Efforts to set this monster off failed, using starting fluid. Over fueled or under fueled, I gave up on the big one and it rusted in peace until last week. I drug it out of the junk and added a chamber fan. An 80mm fan was wired to a loop of heavy wire and this was slid down the barrel. The fan wires exit through a hole near the 4" band clamp. Using the El Cheapo propane injection, with a guesstimate of 1000 cc's of propane and a big sponge in the end of the barrel, I touched it off. I began using hearing protection after that first shot. My wife has also complained that this yet unnamed monster scares the $hit out of her. Yea. Mission Accomplished!!
