I've never built a golf ball cannon but in '90 I built a golf ball mortar (oxy/acy fueled) that was wicked and bad and loud and I finally disasembled it to keep someone from being killed when the range officer (me) wasn"t around to keep the kids enthusiasm (somewhat) contained.

But, what I really wanted to say was to not post about BIG pipe when you are talking 4" OD. Big pipe usually starts around 12" or 16", and in some parts of the country 18". Thanks.

Yeah I would have to agree the title to this thread got my attention when I first seen it then I thought, Oh thick pipe / tubing. Now I not sure these are really pipe, because they are actually rolled plate. They are 10-feet in dia. I like this type of pipe, he!! of a lot easier to weld than 4-inch

I don't have any tube that size---but. I will make you a deal on a turret lathe with a hole that will pass that size, a 1 3/4 bit, and a piece of 4 inch round stock. Only if you have something neater to trade me.

4" OD 1.75 ID is stock from metalsupermarket ask fro smls HF (seamless hot finished) which is 1026 steel. The web site is www.metalsupermarkets.com. They are high for large orders, but just the ticket when you want a 12" piece of something weird.

If you want a precise bore, you can buy it in 1.5" ID and bore it out.

When you said "Big Pipe Needed" I thought for sure Slag would be first in line for that setup
