How To: Make a potato gun (with a taser)

Make a potato gun (with a taser)

This video is quite good, but to be fair, one needs more than 10 minutes to really be able to replicate the task. Mounting a taser is somewhat tricky. Watch this tutorial video and make this spud gun or otherwise known as the taser totter! You can use either a taser or a BBQ igniter. For those of you who want to shoot things with potatoes, this video is for you. Bre Pettis of Make Magazine, creates this potato cannon using a stun gun, PVC piping, and hairspray. Watch as he then launches it two hundred yards, and attempts to shoot holes in a pumpkin. Technically, while we like the design, we believe that a slightly narrower shaft will vastly improve the velocity. But you be the judge, just check out this how to for making a taser potato gun. Make sure to stay safe. Watch this video tutorial and learn how to make a taser potato gun.

where can i get ABS i live in VT and Lowes and home depot dont have it

PVC pipe works as well, try your local hardware store. tell em what your upto and they can probably help ya out. they did for me anyway

also make sure its schedule 40 or more. sch40 it should be printed right on the outside. sch40 is rated for the kinds of PSI you're generating. if you're using hairspray be sure to clean out the threads of your end cap when you're all done. if not it acts like glue over time. a BBQ grill ignition works just fine. don't Tase yourself =)




hmmm... anyone else notice a similarity between Bre Pettis and Johnny Knoxville?
