How To Make A Vortex Cylinder

Unread postAuthor: littlebro05 » Thu Jul 10, 2008 9:29 pm

I've just made a vortex "PVC" Cylinder, well I would call call it a block but well it's round. Well anyway thought this might be interesting way to make for people who don't have the high powered equipment or giant drill bits to make a Vortex BBMG.

Basically you just need a clamp, a cut out vortex cylinder (about 12mm+ wide), cordless drill and desired drill size for tube.

Image

1. You drill straight down the PVC Cylinder at a 90 degree angle with it clamped in place.
2. Then you rotate the PVC Cylinder at probably 45-60degree angle, and drill down where you drilled the original hole
3. That way you can slide the tube in so it's inline with the PVC cylinder as shown in the diagram above.

This is what I got, I did a dodgy job but I could still fit the tube inline with the cylinder

NOTE: I thought of this basing Davidvaini's Vortex Cap idea using PVC Pipe as my vortex and used the original vortex block idea. I'm not sure but Davidvaini I think told me this is what he did.

Don't start crying when I play this as my hobby, Paintball, Airsoft and Nerf are equally good hobbies, except you can play Nerf in public. Good day! Hmph!

Well yeah, I kinda don't have those kind of materials just laying around lol, And I also don't have a gigantic drill or what ever they call it,

This was just intended for people like me who don't have this kind of stuff, so obviously it doesn't apply to you lol.

If only I had money :(

Err it's just a simple tube insert i just did... the bottom part is where the pressurized air blows, and the horizontal part is where the bbs move out of the barrel. I just followed the original vortex block design for it.

Hopefully i'll finish making this soon.

Dussalater, don't bump up month-old topics to ask questions that could be solved with 10 seconds of searching.
