Couldn't you use a measured amount of dry ice in a co2 tank to make real co2?

You COULD try to do that but there are 2 problems

- you need a license to get dry ice in Australia i think (i'm a teenager)
- It'll be bloody well dangerous if you try to put it in PVC pipe because when the co2 expands, it' builds so much pressure it'll probably go BOOM in your face lol

+ air is for free, you have to BUY dry ice and money is money, i'm a cheap asian so what do you expect lol... well yeah that would be feasible but costs money. i'll do it when i'm rich lol

i'd probably burn my self by accident when i put it into the PVC cylinder

It's Nerf or Nothing.

Don't start crying when I play this as my hobby, Paintball, Airsoft and Nerf are equally good hobbies, except you can play Nerf in public. Good day! Hmph!

well damn, i didn't read it properly, but then again, I'm a cheap Asian, co2 tanks in australia is bloody well expensive :(

and damn thats pretty good 5000beads for 3 bucks, tho you have to cut them. but it's all worth it.

Hey Thrusto did you buy the christmas beads from k-mart? cause their so hard to find when it's not christmas season, and you reckon they' weigh about the same as an airsoft bb .12g?


gotta love aussie

Hi on the subject of air tanks got a two litre oxygen bottle from the tip waste dump has regulator gauge built in if you unscrew the safety valve it accepts regular pcl fittings so you can fill straight off the compressor pcl fittings are good for 200psi.

Detachables

Unread postAuthor: littlebro05 » Wed Apr 09, 2008 4:29 pm

Well i just realised that you can just make a shrader valve detachable to make a detachable air tank with just a schrader valve

all u gotta do is find something that you attach and open the valve at the same time, though the only problem i have here is that can i keep a constant flow of air from the schrader since the gaps of the valve to let the air out is soo small

oh yeah i'm thinking just plastic bottles, may look cumbersome but it's way cheaper than using PVC

Dry ice is commonly used to preserve fish longer than regular ice. It's damn nice too.
