i cant find this on home depot's website..although their site really does SUCK!! they dont list some of the more common items on their site.

anyway i just bought one yesterday...modded it in 5mins (give or take epoxy set time) and VOILA!! works like a charm.

Posting my 90% finished gun

my 5hp 20gallon craftsman compressor only fills it to 75psi....but MAN...its WAY quieter and more powerfull than my combustion. my combustion has a 18''x4'' chamber. :O

nice tutorial, so is the drill method equal to the non-drill method, or is one better?

On the orbit site they have an option as "flow control" does it matter weather you buy a model with it or without it?

If you are having problems with the air escaping though the blow gun you need to reduce the size of the hole in the diaphragm.

Try taking the old control rod and bending it into a "U" shape thought the hole in the diaphragm.

I guess I just kind of got burnt out there for a while. I've been getting back into spudding here lately and I thought I would stop by and see how every one here was doing.

How did you get your JB Weld to pool so nicely into the port where the Solenoid used to be? Whenever I mix up some JB Weld its really thick. lol

How cold is it where you live? If its hot it pools, if its cold its a bit thick. That or your mixing it wrong e.g too much of the black stuff.
