Question about Vortex

Unread postAuthor: kyle1292 » Sat Nov 11, 2006 7:37 pm

should the bbs just fit in the vortex or should they be able to move side to side as well?

A vortex block too thin will jam more, make it 1/2" thick or thicker.

That wasn't what he was asking. I'm pretty sure he knows perfectly well how to build a vortex block, he was just questioning how thick it should be.

it tells you on the how-to though and what to drill bit to use i recall.
and the reason ive done this to 3 of your questions is because they are all topics answered in other posts that take 2min to find on this forum.and you made 4 topics all on pistons on the same day,why didnt you just make one topic with 4 questions?

Quote from that link i gave you:
"The BB exit hole can be drilled at 3/16" (.1875) or similar. This hole is tougher to align as the sides of the block are not parallel. Use shims, guidelines and maybe a square (CD cover) to get this hole exactly right. Both entry and exit holes should form a smooth tangent from the vortex hole with no bumps or dips."
