What they REALLY need to build.greenspun.com : LUSENET : Junkyard Wars : One Thread
How about a challenge to build a ROOF over the construction areas? It pains me to see them using good tools out in the rain like that. It scares me to see them using electrical power tools out in the rain like that- often on a metal floor, no less! So how about a roofing contest?

I think they should build a semitruck

Well, you know, they are British.... :o) Did you see last night's episode? I almost cried I was laughing so hard when the Brothers-In-Arms shot their cannon barrel off of their stand. Since when do you not weld the barrel into place? That seemed odd to me. I could be wrong of course. I'm no cannon expert. I do know those stupid stringers of theirs weren't worth the thought they put into them.

With the reciol mech. they couldn't weld the back...
Welding the barrel at the front may have warped it...
Of course, seeing the result, maybe warpage would have helped!
I just thought they were using a 15' projectile...

Another proof of the KISS principle at work. The much simpler design of the "Chemical Bros" cleaned their plow. They could have easily turned down their projectiles tapered or with a couple of larger diameter narrow rings . That way they would have just scraped their way down the barrell, instead of becoming lodged in the barrell. Hindsight is 20/20 most of the time. It was a strange looking cannon.
