Unread postAuthor: b-nice » Fri Nov 18, 2005 5:49 pm

i built a mini hybrid that has been under construction for some time. the chamber is 2'' and the female adapter fits snug aginst the 2''-1.5'' reducer coupling as so with the coupling and union. the only sch 40 fittings hold the ign handle to the gun. a 300,000V stungun to a dual fire sparkplug with a 1.5 bar mix meter setup. i got to transfer the pics from one pc to another and will post them in a day or so. havent shot it yet cause it got to cold where i live before construction was finished. yes after many test i do plan to hold this gun at a 1.5bar mix but only when i feel safe doing so. any comments on safty after pics are posted will be taken seriously.

Hurry up and get the pics uploaded :!: By posting and telling us about a hybrid and then not posting pics is one of those "you left me hangin'" moments! So maybe you could satisfy our senses by telling us about the performance of the cannon. (Hangtime, destruction, etc.) I love hybrids!

in the last pic you can see the max press reading and vent pipe on the top of the gun and the air intake and gauge is on the other side.

Looks pretty cool, I think old steam locomotives have less valves on them! Hope it shoots good for you, looks and sounds like you put some energy into your build.

oh dude, you didnt! some of those fittings arent rated for any pressure, and with a hybrid!? you're just asking for death on a stick if you fire it while holding it

Well, he did say that he used it for a 1/5 mix, so I guess it's not bad. On spudtech UTCpyro beefed up his combustion with DWV and used it for 1.5 mixes..


Still dangerous nevertheless.
