I am doing the pirate theme this year and wanted to see if I could get some ideas on how to integrate a fog machine into an air canon? I don't need anything high powered, just enough to push out the fog. Thanks!

There are tons of tutorials on the forum... just have to search...

The classic air cannon style (which I use a little different variation)

There is always just pump fog through a tube:

Mine uses a combination of both... I pump fog into the cannon tube via a old vacuum hose and then use the air cannon to shoot it out.

Found the shopping list for this as well... (total cost a year or 2 ago was a little over $20)
1 - 12" length of 2" galvanized pipe
1 - 2" galvanized pipe end cap
1 - 1/2" to 2" galvanized pipe reducer
1 - 1/2" to 1 11/2" galvanized pipe reducer
1 - female hose to FIP swivel fitting 3/4" x 1/2"
1 - lawn hose end cap
3 - 1/2" short threaded nopple
1 - 1/2" galvanized reducer bushing
1 - 1/4" IID male air coupler
1 - 6' extension cord
2 - 1/4" femail quick slide, 18ga. crip cord fittings
1 - washing machine water valve (or Lawn Gene 1" jar top anti-siphon sprinkler valve)

Here is the original pic I followed too:

Thanks so much! I was hoping for a smaller or more concealable. Off to YouTube lol

If you already have an air cannon set up and you are just looking to add the fog, you don't need what is pictured above. That picture shows the air valve (sprinkler valve) and an air chamber for volume. :cool:
