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

    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

    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
