Okay, so last year, Alan Schimmel, our "President" made an air cannon. I don't remember what he made it for, but he had made this contraption out of PVC pipe, like you're supposed to. So, He turns on the air compressor, and hooks it up to his cannon for a test fire. While he's waiting for it to fill up to his desired pressure, something crazy for a trial like 70 PSI, The back end of the tank, a 6" diameter Schedule 80 Pipe with end cap, decides that it should shoot across the room. Meanwhile, my mother is sitting in the back of the room making a phone call about something when this 7 pound piece of PVC goes flying past her face, and proceeds to make a VERY large dent in the steel cabinets behind her. She hadn't even noticed the projectile until we told her about it. Alan had failed to correctly prime the seal and coating for the PVC joint. He just slathered it on the pipe, waited 30 minutes instead of the suggested 24 hours, and proceeded to test it. Schimmel hasn't made an air in Robotics cannon since.

I have this wonderful story about weapons testing Laughing.

Okay, so I was testing a new mount for a 10 inch sawblade on one of our modified 3000 RPM drill motors (we removed one layer of gears). How that went was I stood out of line from the blade, and tapped at it with a piece of scrap aluminum to see if the adapter for it shifted. Well, after a few hits the aluminum piece got stuck, pulled down rapidly toward the table, causing an immense torque on the adapter. This caused the sawblade to come free, zip across the floor toward some wooden cabinets 4 feet away and promptly get itself stuck in them. All this happened in, oh, I don't know, half a second? If it had gone the other way, it would've been in my left shin instead. This is one of many reasons why our Adviser is so zealous about spinning weapon safety, along with Dughi's wonderful scar.

since the "Incident", Dubard, nor I, want to test any weapon with teeth on it, unless it's in the mill room, behind a sheet of polycarbonate, mounted to a wooden block, and all of this with the door closed and people wearing safety glasses. also, Dughi's not allowed to be anywhere near it!

That's bull. I will be near it. I will be wearing safety glasses as I always am, and will again be the inspiration for Ms. Moceri giving us more money to do more dangerous robots.

haha we bought these soft rubber wheels for dethinator's original design, and put one on a speed-400 motor, connected a battery, and when it stopped spinning, there was a giant gash on the side of it. We were like wtf just happened? then we realized the tire expanded to almost triple it's original size (there was over an inch of clearance!). Eddie's story is a little more injury related though... he bought new weapon drive wheels (his design is just like mine) and he tested one on a 24k rpm motor. It spun okay then all of a sudden - ffFFFPTTttthhh BAM - slaps him across the wrist where he was holding the motor. The 2" tire came unglued, stretched like 4 inches, and left a huge red welt on eddie's wrist. It was rather impressive...

I made a potato gun like the air cannon you talked about but i used combusted hairspray instead of compressed air. Well at a family part we were playing with it shooting apples into a field where my brother was catching them in a bucket. Kidding around i told everyone to watch my hit him. Instead of shooting it into the air like i had ban, i put the cannon (nearly 6ft lonf, 2 ftx4in combustion chamber reduced down to a 4ftx2in tube) on my shoulder like a bazooka and aim towards my brother. My cousin sprays in the hairspray into the chamber and screws on the end cap. I hit the ignitor and the entire chameber explodes on my shoulder. The barrel ended up going about 50 yds nearly hitting my brother as i layed face first on the ground holding the side of my head. Suprisingly I wasnt burnt at all, it just hurt like hell getting hit with the PVC pipe

once testing the blender we forgot to check to see if all the switches were off. the spin switch was on so the robot spun up and hit our coach right in the knee. luckily he put enough pressure so not a lot of blood. it left a nice scar.

injuries, hmm let see there was the time i was testing the weapon motor and it electronics, it did not work so i figured i dint solder it to the switch write so i picked up the motor, the battery, and the hairnet of electronics that were included and walk to the other room where the solder iron is. as i am making my way to the other room the motor turns on grabs my shirt and eventually a little bit my skin, and gave me a nipple twist. Ya thats right my robot gave me a purple nurple lol!
