new found access to machine shop...

Unread postAuthor: suture self » Thu Mar 12, 2009 10:26 am

like the title says, i was talking to a buddy yesterday who works part time in a machine shop (you can tell where this is going :D) he says he is allowed to use the equipment after hours or what not, we got to talking about what to create, a series of 50 or so loud bangs bounced through my head, but they were chased off by thoughts of a decade in a cage. so we were thinking on an all metal, probably aluminum bbmg capable of being safely ran on considerable amounts of regulated co2, since we found a rather large co2 tank with regulator in his dad's barn :twisted:... you don't have to spoon feed me, but i can't seem to think of any designs for this since obviously i have only used what a hardware store can supply me with, any ideas would be much appretiated!::worthy::

Look in the showcase sections and go from there. When you come up with a plan, post it and we will be happy to make suggestions.

Why not unregged CO<sub>2</sub> :twisted:

Honestly, just a metal housing with a barrel on one end and an air supply on the other.

Have a look at --this one--for inspiration ;)

Thanks for the link jack, looks great, and i may do that, the major detractor is bad air efficiency, and since co2 isn't free and requires a 20 mile drive for me, i was hoping to find some type of piston type gun, since we've potentially got access to some serious equipment, including a cnc milling machine, cad, ect. that shouldn't be a problem :twisted: have any wild ideas? i know you've got some great auto guns under your belt, i can only imagine something like that out of aluminum! :D 8)

Why don't you do some research?

Just because you have the tools to do the job doesn't mean you don't need the knowledge as well.

A good place to start would be the Showcase. Good luck.

EDIT - More helpful tidbit - you don't need all of this equipment to build a bad machine. Take a look at some of clide's stuff, all done on a mini-lathe.

In that case, have a look at this design. I proved it works and works well, with machine shop access you can make something much neater and more powerful.
