I want to use the barrel for composting and hope it can be removed, I have looked everywhere and talked to many people just trying to find a barrel to begin with. There are no sources near me for the barrels so I am hoping someone can help me figure out how to remove the residue left in this barrel.

Thanks to CJ81499 for finding this out. Well, he managed to make my gun shoot like it had a rifled barrel (FYI, a rifled barrel spins the ammo horizontally for more areodynamics), so now I have the first knex gun with a rifled barrel that shoots well. www.instructables.com/id/SWVUCGGG2HE1A1C/ More details in the link.

These are barrels I got when I requested Soda Syrup Barrels, directly from the bottling plant. They still contain a small amount of liquid. The barrels are white and have a label that says CRI-1020787, Corrosive, 8, Phosphoric Acid Solution, UN 1805, along with a bar code. There is no mention of percentage on the label. I assume they are food grade. I need to know if they are safe to use to make a composter. Please let me know, what you know.

I set up a plastic (?) garbage can, well cleaned, under a downspout. It's well covered. Why can't I just dip the water out with a big ole dipper when I need it? My veggie garden is tiny. Thanks in advance for any advise!

They had Polyacrylic acid (CAS# 9003-01-4) in them, which was being used as a calcium dispersant/scale inhibitor. I was wondering with a good rinse, wash and soak if they would be ok for use in a rainwater collection system that feeds a garden. I discovered that that specific chemical is also used in all kinda of cosmetics, and in many of different pills (Musinex as an example) as a time release agent. I figure if I clean them good, how bad could it be if it's something that you would ingest anyway?

For anyone that has or is thinking of building my M14. For those that have built it, you probably may have notice that the barrel at the end does go off at a bit of angle. Luckily I happen to rebuilding it again today and that problem has been fixed. As shown in the pictures, you simply take out the green rods on both sides and then push the orange connectors forward, add a rubber band and the problem is solved. I will include this pictures in the instructions https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-M14-Instructions-1/. Thanks to those that left a birthday comment in my 21st birthday forum topic, really appreciate it.

I was trying to design a new knex barrel and saw i had an excess of roller coaster parts. So i made a long plain straight piece of track and just attached a rubber band to a cart then the front of the track and it had so much power because of the zero friction barrel. So i was wondering if we could form this type of barrel into a new breed of knex guns. Comment if you have ideas.

I was wondering where to find those multipurpose metal barrels like the ones you find conveniently scattered across landscapes in first person shooters. They also seem notorious for holding toxic waste in movies. I was thinking it would be at some kind of surplus store. Can anyone help?

I am, by dint of geography, unable to enter the Jack Daniel's Contest. I do, though, have a rather good idea, which I think would have a decent chance of winning, if presented properly. Here's the deal - you can have the idea, for free. But, if you win the $25,000 grand prize, you must make a serious attempt to get the barrel to me in the UK. If you "only" win first or second, then all I want from you is a polite "thank you". There's a catch, though - I will not give this idea to any one person. I will give it to everybody who asks for it by PM. Nobody will know how many people have been given my idea, and it is down to everybody who asks to present the idea in their own video, in their own style. You can comment if you want, maybe add your own ideas if you are also from an ineligible location, but I will only give the idea by return of PM.

Thanks to this the water in the barrel was hot. If it help the pics were taken on the beach in the night Thanks for any help MAGx2

I came up with this gun design a year or so ago. I think the idea for such a wide barrel has been done, like the bug-squarish one, "Special munitions" or something. Even this use of gray rods has been done as a grenade launcher- but never with a trigger. The usefulness would be to use as a shotgun, of course, or fire those little black circle things. I've taken this apart some time ago, but it could be rebuilt. I realize the wide ramrod tip would seriously decrease power, but it is a less piece-consuming version of the barrel seen on the previously mentioned "special munitions" (or something) gun. Does anyone think this is valuable?

So, I want to make a "programmable barrel organ" like the $1100 version below (called the Gloggomobil) but instead of using a xylophone to make the notes, I want to use kalimba-style metal rods that are plucked by pegs. My problem is, I can't think up a good way to do the barrel. The pins need to be strong enough to pluck these metal bars without breaking, but also secure in their spots so that they don't fall out when the drum is upside-down. The only thing I can think of that would be effective would be a metal barrel with threaded holes that you put screws into, but not only would drilling and threading hundreds of holes be impossibly time-consuming, programming a song would take hours and hours. I've been pondering this thing for the last week and I'm at my wits end. I'm asking the Instructables community to give me a hand figuring out what to do. Pretty much any material is at my disposal: wood, metal or plastic. I want this thing to look good though, so I don' want to do nails in a coffee can or something el-cheapo like that. Thanks for any ideas, I'll be sure to write up an Instructable once work gets underway.

Hello. I made a Paintball-to-Airsoft-sniper conversion about a year ago. (Instructable soon! Don't worry. And another one after that!) I saw these Barrage barrels and wanted to know if anyone uses them or has used them, and what they think. My conversion uses a longer home-made barrel, not a Barrage barrel. These barrels are used in normal paintball guns to shoot BBs in .117 (bb gun bbs) or Airsoft (6mm) calibers. The barrel comes as a one-piece part that you just screw on. It has a Feet-Per-Second adjustment that supposedly ranges from 175FPS to 450FPS. There is an attached hopper that you put the ammo in. the barrels are about ten inches long, and made of solid aluminum. Anyway, anyone know anything about them?

Recently I was browsing instructables and noticed that there aren't any 'ables on how to figure out what size of DC powerjack one has or even for that matter how those barrel power jacks are measured. One of the major things the DIY Laptop Repair guides overlook is how to identify which DC Jack you have so you can replace it. Most laptop DC jacks don't have part numbers unless they are from a main distributor like DELL. I've been reading a lot of conflicting information as to what really matters when your trying to find a replacement connector component. Some mention barrel length as being important whereas others focus on the inner and outer diameter. It sure would be nice if someone could write up an instructable on how to correctly identify these and what is important when looking for replacement parts like these.

I have a TSD SDM100 airsoft sniper rifle, and i wanted to get a tightbore airsoft barrel in in. i could not find the barrel length on the gun box, in the booklet, or online. I measured the barrel in my gun with a tape, and it turns out to be a little under 16 inches, or 455mm. On airsplat.com, i found a barrel that matches the length, and is a tightbore of good make. However, it is labled that it is for AK47 type guns. it looks no different than the barrel in my gun. Is it okay to get this barrel? Will it work? It is expensive, so i dont want to get it and then have it not work. Any and all help appreciated. Could i possibly get a longer barrel to be safe and then cut it to fit?

Hey, I'm looking to build a rain barrel, and found out that my local car wash is willing to give me a 55 gallon drum. The thing is, I don't know what kind of soap they use (I would have asked, but the guy was impossible to understand) or how to clean it out. If anybody has experience in this, that'd be great!

I started thinking about how the tube material could be improved. Although I love the ghetto look of pringles wrapped in the invincible duct tape, improvements can be made. You could use PVC or ABS for the tube, it wouldnt need pressure rating because Im sure this thing wouldnt have enough power to explode the pringles/tape team. This is rather cheap and you could just glue on an endcap. Then a BBQ ignitor can be threaded in, a ring to define the chamber and barrel and fuel sprayed in! However getting the perfect cost/durability/strength ratio is hard.

I have been building on this thing for the past 3 days, 1 to 3 hours a day. It's a massive, yellow rod thick, double barrel, super strurdy, pin guided (!) break action shotgun. I will give credit to Seleziona, because I took his Ghost 3.0 stock and trigger + handle mech and modded it slightly to fit my gun. (Don't worry I asked him in a PM) Don't get me wrong, but I just didn't felt like making a stock and trigger (mech) myself because I tried but failed 3 times because I'm not very good at making stocks and triggers out of nothing. Maybe a lack of experience, you guys tell me. More details and (a) pic(s) will come tomorrow. Now, on the other hand: I was scrolling trough the forum this evening, and I saw Kinetic's topic about innovation. and I'm 'afraid' that this shotgun will not be 'mind-blowing' to you professional builders and innovators like Dunkis, Kinetic, DJ, etc. I expect that you pro's will think: Bah, meh, just another generic gun, not innovative. And honestly, I don't want the pro's to think that. I hope that you professionals and innovation-addicts realize that some not-professionals are doing their best at innovation, but sometimes can't help that their design is too generic. So I hope this will not be too generic and 'not-innovative' and you pro's like it so we can keep the community alive and maintain all the other things that were discussed in the forum topic the last few weeks/months. I always try to be as innovative as possible, but if I want to post something that I made and if I'm proud of it, even when it's not innovative, is it ok if I post it? In my opinion, I have the right to post it. The point is: I did my best, I'm always doing my best at innovation and building and I hope you guys will like it. (Don't mind my spelling and grammar please, English is not my home-language) Regards, H.
