Hybrid ignition sources

Unread postAuthor: Marffy » Mon Apr 19, 2010 11:18 pm

I was thinking of making a hybrid but i don't know anything in detail about em'. I was wondering if this: http://ultimatespudgun.com/pistol-grip- ... p-243.html would be a good ignition source or not? i don't know if it will give me enough spark though. I'm also wondering if a piston hybrid is any more powerful then a normal hybrid and how do they work?

Any extra info on hybrids would be nice. (i've already seen the wiki)

a piston hybrid is slightly less powerful than a normal hybrid since the flow through the valve is different. I like them because I don't have to make and replace burst disks. That is their strong suite; to make ridiculously powerful potato guns faster to reload and only slightly less powerful.

With a well constructed spark plug, a simple BBQ igniter will work with mixes up to ~8-10x.

That igniter has 30,000 volts so as long you don't botch the spark plug you should be fine.
