Welcome to Produce Artillery Technology, a privately
maintained site for Spud Gun enthusiasts and people interested
in the Spud Gun field. I know I can't compete with
people like Ed Goldmann or Joel Suprise, but I hope to bring
together a comprehensive gathering of information for everyone
from beginners to seasoned spud gunners.
02.20.03 - Okay, I've managed to find some time to work
on RatioCalc. Without any more adu I give you RatioCalc 1.1 I added in an actual ratio process, so it can now truely be called RatioCalc. I also compiled it under the 2.4.19 kernel, and
I'm going to test its ANSI C compliance sometime soon on as well.
12.03.02 - Its been quite a while since my last
update, mainly because of school and lately hunting
season. I finally managed to get around to packaging the
source and executable into a tar.gz file for people to
download. I also tested the file under the 2.4.18 Linux
kernel with gcc 3.2 and it works just fine! Without
further delay I give you Ratio
Calc 1.0b ready for your downloading pleasure!
10.25.02 - With college and all, I haven't been able
to put as much time into my projects as I would like, but
finally after months of slacking off, I finished my Linux port
of Ratio Calc! Keep in mind that it is a beta right now,
as it only calculates chamber volumes right now. I don't
have the tar.gz files ready yet, as I'm working out the kinks
of the install script and such, and I still have to write up
the Readme file. For now here's
the source to RatioCalc for Linux 1.0b, it will compile under
the 2.4.18-20 kernel, and on any ANSI C Compliant Windows
07.17.02 - Huge update. The SG125 is getting
closer to being complete. I have to file the mounting
brackets, and assemble the frame, pvc and electrodes.
Also I've been super busy working on my port of Ratio Calc to
Linux. I have a actual program now, but its not ready
for beta yet, as I still have two errors I'm working on fixing
in the 217 lines of C that make up the program. Once the
errors are resolved, then I have to check the math to make
sure its figuring the volume correctly, so it will probably be
another week before its ready to be uploaded. I hope to
have the SG125 ready within a week and a half, so check back
often to see some pictures of the progress.
07.08.02 - Damn, I bet everyone thought I was dead
or something. Actually I've been busy with lots of side
projects, but I digress. Disregard the last news update,
the SG125 is back under development again. I added four
new shots of the gun in various states of work.
Basically all the PVC work is done, now I have to cut the wood
for the frame, and possibly size down the combustion chamber a
little. Also, I've began work on porting a program
called RatioCalc over to Linux. Its not easy going, and
it will be a long time before I have any kind of a beta ready.
05.28.02 - Well as I mentioned below, work on SG125
has been halted, but a new project has been born in its wake,
the SG-1.5C. Right now its in the design phase, being
explored with some 3d renderings of possible
configurations. Check out the Drafting Board area for
more info and some preliminary shots from Dimensions.
05.25.02 - Bad news, development has been halted on
the SG125, due to someone swiping my materials! More
info coming later.
04.18.02 - Not really much of an update, but the
weather is changing, so its officially spud gun season. As
soon as I can get hold of some ammo and fuel, expect to see
some pics of the cannons in service again!
03.06.02 - I ran a new test using a caulking tube
for a projectile. Did a decent amount of damage to a
tree. Find out more about it in the range photos.
02.25.02 - Finally, the SG125 has been
unveiled! Bolt action, bad ass, and cheaper than the
SP9004. Check it out in the Drafting Board area.
Also I tweaked some of the colors on the page, to make the
links more visible.
01.22.02 - Modified some of the pages to make the
links easier to see. I also added some pictures to the
Range Photos from my test firing of some Golf Ball Projectiles
(GBP). Go check 'em out to see what a golf ball does to
a car door at 15 feet!
