Carl wrote an instructable explaining how to build a water mortar (previously seen in our Flickr pool) -

This water mortar is made from PVC using a variation on the “drill press lathe” technique from the book “Eccentric Cubicle.” The finished product launches over a quart of water per shot!

Thanks, Carl! – Link
