This is a project that I slapped together at least 10 years ago.
This is a Binaca Cannon – a toy cannon that shoots a 35mm film canister over 25 feet with a single spray of Binaca Breath Spray!
The first picture I was able to cut/paste from a small video I have of a test firing. See link below for the the entire video.
It’s pretty simple to make – all you need is a Grill Starter, a 35mm Film Canister and some scrap pieces of wood. Oh yeah – and a canister of Binaca Breath Spray for fuel.
You run a wire onto the “muzzle” end and through the lid – the other end is connected to the starter (see pics 3 & 4). Spread out the wire ends so when you click the starter you get a nice, large spark across the wires. Then all you do is direct a quick squirt of spray into the canister and quickly place it onto the lid tightly.
Press the button and POP! A nice ball of fire and a fresh smelling room – minty!!!
For anyone wondering about the sound, here's a link to a video I shot of a test firing.
Now, be careful out there – don’t go blowing any fingers off! Not that it has that kind of power, but I thought I should put a warning out. ;-)
