    Compressed Air Rocket Launcher

    I appreciate the reply. My post was written at the end of a long day where I discovered that my Lowes pickup order was a mish-mash of non-fitting parts, and there were no instructions on how to figure it out. I tried to edit the wording to tone down the frustration. A second trip to the store to do it myself made it much clearer, and I doubt I'll use store-pickup for things like this again. Dry-fitting everything is a must, assembly was a bit of a puzzle because every piece looked the same, but it was fun to play with the nasty PVC glue.I will continue with this build for now, anticipating that it will be for lower-pressure launches for fun and teaching, and not high-pressure launches to impress the neighbours.I would also appreciate a new instructable on building with galvanized pi...

    I'm sorry, but this is one of the worst instructables I've ever seen. "Lowes doesn't carry this, you'll have to find it somewhere else". "Be careful that your launcher doesn't explode when there are kids near". The list of materials is nice, but there are no instructions on how to put the damn thing together. And I did use Lowes pickup service, which was nice, but the minimum wage employees are not paid enough to care that some components are for the wrong pipe diameter as they were randomly picked from the box on the shelf (put there by other ignorant customers).
