Propane Meter help.

Unread postAuthor: jitup » Fri Dec 05, 2008 11:04 pm

this post is mainly geared twords starman and homedepot pro.

I am currently modifying my spray and pray to use propane and I have it almost done. I just need to know a few little details. I am useing a fueling system similar to the one on starmans triple thunder. (I had a similar idea, his was better designed and executed so I "borrowed" the plans.)

All I need to know is what did you use to connect to the propane bottle. was it one of those propane torches? and also I need to know what fitting did you use to connect the adapter attached to the propane bottle to the 1/4 shut off valve. After I sort out these details the cannon will be done.

You can use an adapter on the propane tank but they are sometime hard to find.

If it's a Bernzomatic torch you can just unscrew the air mixer from the torch head and use a short length of pressure tubing and a hose clamp. Connect the hose to the chamber via a barbed fitting to a 1/4" NPT thread. Your local hardware store should have the hose and barbed fitting that'll fit the Bernzomatic torch head.
