LeMaudit; Here is a reasonably priced one that works great in the daylight.
I got one and some others on the forum have them as well. See Moonbogg's combustion pictures and video.

http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtop ... tml#238507

I also have complete 3D CAD drawings for it!
See page 5 in Sketchup Sticky!

The bike pump I currently use has something like an adjustable detent that clamps onto either a presta or schrader valve, but it hasn't had any seal damage after being unattached and reattached a great many times.


No, they should be fine. It's only the screw-on adapters I've got, which require a tight O-ring to be pushed over the threads each time it's used.

I wonder how much deeper the ocean would be without sponges.
Right now I'm having amnesia and deja vu at the same time. I think I've forgotten this before.

Some mixed results:

fill rig - win! - no leaks, cartridge held pressure beautifully. Still a bit fiddly but it can be refined.

ignition - fail! - click click click... and I think I know why, might have missed an obvious short point with the retaining pins...

There has to be, otherwise you can't push the pins in far enough to free the plug... going to try with some delrin plugs, which will probably shear if I'm lucky enough to get it to work :D

Here it is, closed and open. The schrader fitting is from my original fill rig, now permanently epoxied in place.

I don't follow why you're using pins

If it needs to be flush then grub screws or even countersunk screws will be usable.

Linonophobia :) but you're right, and threading Delrin is a piece of cake anyway.

In my earlier prediction I wrote:going to try with some delrin plugs, which will probably shear if I'm lucky enough to get it to work :D


One carefully calculated 10x mix later:

HAHAHA!

YES!

*ahem*

Of course the delrin pins sheared as predicted and the end plug blew out, but on the plus side:

- the fill rig worked perfectly

- the detent sealed and held pressure, then released the projectile in spite of the end plug blowout.

Good result in my book :) now to refine it, I have some ideas to scribble.
