Kelli Sue's PMS machine, PMS standing for Pumpkin Master Slayer
Woman created and welded !!
Getting the machine ready for it's first official test shot
Kelli getting ready to see if her design will work
The ever important loading of the pumpking, or in this first test fire shot, the putty tape duct tape ball :) anyone who has worked at the shop has kicked on of these around.
Test pumpkin loaded, no weight added, first ever shot of PMS coming right up
Kelli lets go and begins to run away :) I love all these shots of her running, and Greg just standing there watching, hahah
Arming coming around, test pumpkin upside down and holding in its cage...
Test pumpkin beginning to come out of the cage
if you look, you can see that the test pumpkin has fallen out of the sling and is hanging mid air kinda lost in that green bush in the background
Sling is flying doing what it should, but the test pumpkin is on the ground, behind the machine :)
A little tweak here and there and right back at it
Kelli decided to ditch the test pumpkin, and load the real thing!
Checking to see if any cars are coming down the road in the line of fire :) (still no weight but really we do take safety seriously)
Kelli holding the pumpkin in place as the arm is well, um, armed
Greg helping and getting the sling in position
Kelli excited to see it launch again
waiting for traffic to chill
YAY test fire #2 coming right up
she lets go, and runs
