Introduction: Aluminium Toy Cannon

Picture of Aluminium Toy Cannon

So this is toy cannon that i made in manufacturing class last semester. It started out as 8in of 1in aluminum stock, thrown onto a metal lathe we had at school and out comes the cannon. As my idea was for this was to be a paper weight. But when little kids see this they only see one thing... something cool to play with lol

so hope you enjoy

also, will it fire if you put some black powder in it?

i believe it will i have never tried with this one, but while i was making this one a friend of mine made a larger scale one than mine... we did get it to fire but we used a very small amount of power in it

I'm surprised you havent fired it yet! But overall, nice job.

although it isn't perfect it was a lot of fun to make and it does give my desk some character... plus its made of metal so it is kid proof for the most part
