Vortex Cannon

So I initially imagined I was going to build the Vortex Cannon out of wood…but I had this idea that it would work better and be much lighter, if it were made out of  metal.  So today I visited LAD Welding in Concord NH.  This place is an awesome shop that does fantastic metal work and custom steel fabrication.  The owner there, Bill Bodah, really loved the Sound in Focus project and decided  to build TWO of them!  One for Sound in Focus, and another for his custom motorcycle parts company Web Boards.

Here’s a shot of the rear flange, 36 inches of rolled steel.  This thing is gonna be HUGE!

I should have a contest to see who can come up with a name for this monster!
