Sorry to hear that Davy, still very interesting project. Was wondering, do you know what psi those canes hold? I would imagine it must be fairly high.

As pressure gauges where not available at the time it is hard to say. It was generally considered at the time to be more powerful than the equivalent black powder weapons. I can only conclude due to the fact they where much more expensive than black powder weapons. The psi would need to be very high. I will have a better idea one we start to take the thing apart. I would hazard a guess at at least 3000 psi

Make sure you hydro static test anything you are going to put under pressure - - - that way if you have a failure you will still be alive to repair and tell us!

If you get a rupture with water you will have a leak if you have the same failure with air you will have a gernade!

I'm sure you can google the proper procedure.

By the way I loved the video!

I love learning new things - - - I feel if our president had seen and studied this video it might have made a differance in some of his thinking - - - but maybe not.

Default Wow

Just had a reply from an air gun forum I have asked for help. They reckon this thing could have been charged to 6000 psi. No wonder it had some hitting power.

Dang, that's a lot of pressure. Does it look like it's built to sustain pressure like that?
