This is a fairly easy way of making an awesome 1/2 inch pnuematic pvc luancher.

Step 1: What you'll need

Picture of What you'll need
most of these things can be found in any hardware store besides the bike pump, as for that you're on you're own, I've had that mounted on my road bike for several years and is probably discontinued by now, but you could probably find another one in a bike shop that'll work for not too much.
*all pvc is 1/2 inch in diameter*
atleast 2 feet of pvc pipe
1) T
1) 2 liter bottle
1) pvc cement
1) electricians tape( or any other type of strong tape, but I like the feel of electricians tape on the handle)
1) pvc ball valve

ok i working o a project like this and i have no idea about plubing parts. can you get a threded piece of pvc pipe that would fit the screw cap of a 2L bottle or is it a case of retofitting the lid of a bottle into a pipe.

I honestly highly doubt you could find threading of that exact size.. i've tried to find a size before and failed.. so i used 1/2 inch pvc pipe and pvc cement it to the inside of the 2L bottle..
yes i know of that way but i wanted to fit a full bottle of (generic Fizzie Pop) to a rig that used the CO2 pressure to force the drink up into a cupso it is a case of drilling a hole a spare lid inside the internal seal and epoxying it in. but thanks for the advice
My dad helped me make this. I'll post pics in a little bit. Michael

i used a pvc cap and drilled a hole in it then shoved a tire valve i cut off a tire in it to pump it up it makes it easy to pump up.
What about a ball hand pump?
tell me, where can i find the valve! ( the red thing)
It's a PVC "Ball Valve", you should find one at a plumbing supply, or hardware store.
