In the 1970's Frisbie Engine built a series of fine "signal" cannons. The were made of stainless steel prop shafts, 4" in diameter with a 3" bore and about 30" long. I was given one, I believe Charley Jones got one and Reed and Jess Coen kept two, ,Pour in a good slug of black powder, light a short fuse and stand way back. The results were spectacular!!
