Vortex Blocks.....

Unread postAuthor: boom_o_matic_2.0 » Tue Apr 28, 2009 2:36 pm

Ok so I got a barrel and a chamber for my bbmg. I just need some help with the vortex block. what should I use to make it? I was thinking of making the whole thing like inline. Would I put the vortex block at the front of the chamber and have a spring behind the bb's pushing them towards it? Also how big should the hole in the middle of the vortex block be?

3/4" hole for your vortex block, yes the BBs would be pushed with a plunger towards the vortex block in the front of the chamber. Make sure your air inlet hole is smaller than your projectiles(bb's) or have some sort of netting or screen that makes sure bbs dont fall into your air inlet.

Also don't use too strong of a spring or else you will get jams. If you dont have a choice on spring strength then install a skirt over the vortex block that covers 1/4 of the 3/4" hole.

Look, Don't go thinking I'm picking on you but this is the 3rd time I've said UTFSE.

I have seen no effort by you to find these easily found answers on your own. Again and again you ask to be spoonfeed and I want no other members to spoonfeed you any more answes untill you post your idea's, design's so that we know your making a good valid attempt to do your own leg work.

ok so I got an idea. I like the vortex cap idea. I'm just curious if it would work in my design.
