Other things from PVC

Post by Monsoon » Thu Mar 30, 2006 1:23 am

I know that PVC around here is usually used for homemade water guns, but last year, my Dad made some marshmallow blasters using PVC pipe. I'll link a picture later. What other things could you make with PVC? I was thinking of making a marshmallow bazooka that can launch the jumbo puffed ones.

I've (and probably a lot of other members, too) seen instructions for those on the internet.

Other things from PVC:
Nerf guns
Marshmallow guns
Water Balloon guns
Airsoft guns
Potato guns
Golf ball guns
Tennis ball guns
... guns ...

A marshmallow bazooka? I don't see how that could be used...

You could use it for piping in your house... or is that just me? :p
Seriously though PVC is made for almost all types of guns as it channels air and water so well.(as it's designed to)

Other things you could make with PVC could be a musical instrument, as that channels air.
Or a homemade sprinkler system, as that chanels water.

EDIT: Took SilentGuy's advise and made the post more understandable.

@ 20quid: You said, "...PVC is almost made for types of guns..." Should that be, "...PVC is made for almost all types of guns...?" The sentence not that big a deal, but in this case, the meaning might be lost.

I have an irrigation system that uses PVC.

There are many uses of PVC pipes. We used a PVC pipe, an old Christmas tree stand, a coat hanger, lots of duct tape, an old T-shirt and stuffing to make a custom body form for sewing.

Note: Don't inhale the solvent fumes if you are glueing together PVC pipes and end caps.

PVC Marshmallow Guns

Post by scupper » Tue Aug 21, 2007 8:05 pm

Hi, I joined this forum so I can maybe get some ideas for marshmallow guns and how to maybe used a bicycle pump or other action instead of using conventional methods (self propelled by blowing into a tube).
I've made over 60 shooters in the last year for my nephews and bro's in law.
I've even made some to look like a star war's blaster (sort of).
