A simple and cheap compressed air gun made from house hold items. Shoots VERY far.
I got bored one day and decided to make one. I already had the supplies so what the heck.
I AM NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYTHING THAT IS BROKEN OR KILLED WITH THIS GUN. NEVER SHOOT AT PEOPLE OR ANIMALS, OR SHOOT DEADLY PROJECTILES LIKE NAILS OUT OF THIS GUN.
This is my first Instructable so please go easy.
Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: Get Out the Materials!!!
Engine cleaner air compressor attachment
Empty refrigerant can
2 Female couplers
1 Male coupler
1 Threaded connector
You don't need a cell phone (lol)
Step 2: Put It Together!!!
First pull off the tip of the engine cleaner with the pliers or cut it off. There may be a smaller tube inside if so, pull it out or unscrew it (they are all different). Once that is done, wrap the spot where the pipe connects to the handle with tape (you could glue it if you want). Once that is done, screw the male coupler onto the refrigerant can. connect the 2 together and you have a gun.
Step 3: The Tank Filler/Compressor Thing!!
This is the easy part, all you have to do is screw in the 2 male couplers into the threaded coupler.
Look at the Pictures if you need help (lol)
Step 4: Filling!!!
Put the piece that you just made into the piece on the bottle and the identical piece on the compressor.
fill for 30 seconds or until you feel that it is good (you can use a gauge, I just didn't have the right one). WARNING DO NOT exceed 170 psi max because the bottle will explode and the shrapnel will kill you!
sorry I couldn't flip the picture.
Step 5: Firing!!!
Put whatever fits in the barrel and press the button.
(my camera died right before I pulled the trigger so no picture. video coming soon ( if my video camera doesn't die)).
