Wholey Bejeezus!!!........Golf ball testing...

So, I mounted my circular saw upside down in my Workforce table vice, duct taped the blade gaurd back, turned it on, and lightly threw a golf ball on the blade. That ball SHOT straight up in the air about 80' and had some WICKED revers spin, as when it landed, it shot BACKWARDS twards my house! My neigbors just came home, and they are laughing their asses off!

Im gonna go work on a Fully automatic golf ball feeder. I have some 3" diameter tube Im gonna use for a "magazine". Dont have much for protection, just some welding gear. I'll report back in a while.

Good point on the not killing self. Im taking off my welding gear, as I just realized that it could get caught in the blade when I drop the balls on it.

Ok. Used some tubing to feed the golf balls. IT WORKED! First attempt not so good. Balls went everywhere. I was hit twice! well........like 2.15 times. One grazed my ear, while another hit me in the shoulder, and as I flinched/turned for cover, I was tagged in the back. Didnt hurt too bad. BUT, I have found out how to AIM this thing. Yes. Aim. Im pretty sure I can pick off a jogger accross the street. On another note. I sent a golf ball somewhere. Not sure where though. It went UP, and I lost it in the sun. I ducked and covered my head, waiting for the impact. Nothing. Never heard it land. It MAY be in orbit.

She wont make me a list. Shes afraid I might F somthing up. Go figure. Im working on an Air cannon for some of these Golf balls, but I think Im gonna need more presure. My compressor cuts out at 135 psi (which is 10 psi into the red), and I think Im gonna need about 150 psi. to do what I have planned.
Dam....I gotta wash the truck!
