Unread postAuthor: WOW!! » Tue Aug 08, 2006 1:26 pm

I got a 3" DWV tee laying around I was going to make a BBMG useing a vorext block. Since it is a 3" tee should I make the hole in it 1" in stead of 3/4"? The other holes will be the same. Thx

Is the vortex itself 3" in diameter or is the housing for it?

Then it should be the same as a 2" vortex, just in a bigger space. Make it into a double vortex and split the airstream going in into 2 blowguns. 3" is enough space.

Just get a 1/2" PVC one. :twisted: They're like 3 bucks compared to 8 for a 1/4" ball valve.

It won't work. Strafers work on the concept of some pressure in the chamber, a 3inch chamber is WAY too huge. WIth the air that leaves the barrel, your chamber will have hardly enough pressure to get any kind of power behind the BBs.
