Make a potato gun, otherwise known as the spud gun

This is a step-by-step instructional on how to make a potato gun, otherwise known as the spud gun, potato launcher, potato cannon, etc. Although this can be a fun activity, it is still dangerous, just like a real weapon.

The tools needed for this spud cannon are a drill, saw, tape measure, drill bits, extension cord, permanent marker, sanding block and wire strippers.

The supplies for this potato cannon are pipe cleaner, PVC cement, 3" PVC, 1 1/2" PVC, 3" PVC clean out fitting, 3" PVC coupling, coupling reducer (3" to 1 1/2"), grill ignitor kit, electrical tape, electric house wire (Romex) and sand paper (coarse).
