cloud questions

Unread postAuthor: veginator » Fri Jun 01, 2007 11:30 am

I am thinking about making a cloud and I need to know the right length of 2 inch I should use, also where should I place the blow gun?

the length of the pipe mostly depends on the amount of ammo you want the gun to hold. As a basic rule the smaller the area of the pipe the greater the pressure can build the higher fps you get. i don't think the length would matter much id say any where between 3 inches to 8 inches should be fine as long as there is a decent air source.in most gun the blow gun is at a 90 degree angle to the barrel, so it can be used as a normal gun would be. search the forums theres plenty of cloud pictures to look at. im more of a vortex expert so i dont knowhow far down the pipe to put the blowgun

i built both, cloud and vortex and my theory would be the shorter the cloud chamber the better, the bb's agitate inside the chamber and get blown/sucked out the barrel, so the longer the chamber the less effective the firepower. as for a vortex gun the chamber can be longer cause the bb's agitate inside a very small area (inside the vortex block). watch my video to see the difference.
