Nope, I moved it backwards a bit.

I have a bit of a problem though.

The valve on the back.. when you disengage the blowgun from it.. it loses 3 bars of pressure. Haha.

going to get an old fashioned tire valve tommorow then I guess.

I just made an astable multivibrator but it did not work very well... I'd need some kind of voltage doubler circuit that outputs AC too.. instead of rectify it.

Cool, I could ask the waitresses at my work if they want to experiment on one... probably only a couple will be willing to rectify it though.
