Steel launcher

Post by bugwubber »

Local cubscout camp had someone make these for them.

They had 4 of these going on two compressors.

As expected by me, one was pulled over so we talked about ways to add stabilizers etc to prevent that.

Steel would be great, but you need a lot of expensive tools to make something like this. It looks great though!

Does that steel bar on the side with paracord on it slide onto the lip of the bottle to hold it in place?

Right it just rotates. The rounded end of.the bar goes on top of the ring handle on the bottle.
