You know...

I like it this way without the vacuum front bit on it!

Very snub nosed and aggressive - perhaps you could make an alternative short barrel edge trim for the unit and then swap over to the twin coil extension when required?

Well, I like it!

How about function specific barrels? one for distance and accuracy, and one for close scattershot?

Dang it Herr Döktor!

Well tbh the vacuum end is supposed to be the ranged one. This is a closer scatter type, if the main housing got damaged or some such event. I have no idea what i could add to make a long range snub attachment...lol

Well I also like it - now we need a side on shot just to see how 'stubby' this lethal little bugger looks.

By the by - I cannot purchase a rifle stock from eBay in New South Wales (another state in Australia) because Victorian gun law (both State and era!) considers any part of a firearm (such as a lump of wood) to be a firearm, therefore requring a licence.

I shall have to carve my own gun stock!

Doh that sucks about the stock, hey least you get to say you made it!!

Ask and ye shall receive, PLUS a bonus pic of a possible longer range precision one:
Spoiler (click to show/hide)

The clear thing on the first pic is the fan assembly from the vacuum, and it now owns a piece of my left hand (drill went through too fast and hit in between my pointer and middle finger  Undecided

Fan would be painted and the clear part possibly have viewing windows , not 100% sure yet.

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

I need to now fix up the area not normally seen when the large barrel is on, not sure what i am going to do there, suggestions?

Still deciding if i want to paint the black part on the other stub barrel =)

need a name for this one, decided to name the other one thumper =D

Nicely done, Prof! I was going to say that when I'm doing anything that 'nests', or 'stacks' and I want to make it strong, I usually drill a central hole in each part, and run a threaded rod through all the parts, and lock them all together with a nut at each end; tha's what holds the Thunderbuss together; on my Steam Pistol (which I WILL finish one day!), I used threaded tube, the sort of thing that is used in making lamps and light fittings, but it's difficult to come by, and the last 1 m length I found cost me £20! Shocked

What to do about the bulkhead: how about some hemispheres,  so they look like the exposed ends of pressurised cylinders? Or maybe short lengths of 1/2" tube with mesh in them, to resemble vents of some kind?

Threaded components with holes up the middle are a problem.

Compression plumbing fittings are one answer.

Bicycle head stocks are another, if the dimensions allow.

All great ideas, and i will remember the threaded rod / lamp rod for future projects =D

The bulk head is a odd bird so to speak, as it houses the light for the internals AND is supposed to be the A/C generator chamber which powers the coils. I like the cooling vents idea, perhaps i can make some with copper mesh I have. I will have to be careful when cutting as there is not a lot of room, buti think it's doable. Watch this space fore developments =D

Herr Döktor,

First off may i see a pic of this steam pistol?

Secondly i need a opinion I have decided to same my sanity and instead make a cover of sorts for the bulkhead. while scouring for parts i realized that a CD case is just about the right size =)

Spoiler (click to show/hide)

Thing is i cannot decide on which I like, both would be painted of course, but which seems to flow better? (down side of both is the second metal piece from the base of the barrels has to be omitted for depth reasons)

I like the second one too, though it may be a bugger to paint, as it's polypropylene- it'd need wet sanding with fine wet or dry paper, and plastic primer, but it should be ok...

Looks real good mate. Turned out a treat.

Howsabout having the existing engine drive a Wimshurst machine or maybe a Van der Graaf.

Belt drive, big polished sphere, headset with a couple of arcing points placed just above the ears.

Nice effect.
