Valves for a propane meter?

Unread postAuthor: jermx » Mon Jun 04, 2007 4:41 pm

I really need help, I'm as dumb as a brick when it comes to getting all the parts together to make my cannon!! lol
But when I get all the parts together I can make it easily lol. I am good at making things but not knowing what parts I need just makes it harder. So could anybody be so kind as to help me plz?

Check the How-To section. There are two or more guides on building a propane meter. Also, check the Wiki. Also, check www.burntlatke.com .

Please search before you post next time. You could have answered your own question in 10 seconds without posting.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

You need high pressure ballvalves and brasss pipe. Are you building a hybrid or a metered propane gun? If your building a hybrid then you dont need the ball valves you just need a gauge.

turbo you still need ball valves for a hybrid..

jerm you will need 2 ball valves, find out waht your chamber size is get a length of pipe and a bottle of propane...search the wiki or go to bcarms and look at the meters..u will need the same parts as that..

Again, I always see you passing around false information.
Have you even built a hybrid?

Since when is there a need for high pressure stuff either? My meter is just a piece o 1/2" sch 40 pvc. There's one ball valve on it, I use the propane torch's valve as the other one.
