Unread postAuthor: Petitlu » Fri Mar 09, 2012 8:07 am

This is my first hybrid, it is a lot advanced, all calculations are made, meter room and finished ignition systems also finished, I have to make the handle with a piezo BBQ and arrange things a little .. .
This hybrid is named ThorJack, Jack is Jackssmirkingrevenge to thank for his help in the calculations of the meter and other advice

features:

Mix40-max

BBQ piezo-ignition

-Caliber: 12.7mm rifled PN - .50 - The gun is mounted on a RR to put a burst disc

-All connections are HP

- The room is a bottle of paintball

- Special Meter as it disconnects from the hybrid after this one pressurized, so I have a bigger shooting comfort


Here is where I am:
Of course it's the mano for the picture! I ordered the specific ...

That looks fantastic, good luck with the tests! And I am truly honoured about the name :) let's hope that doesn't curse it and it stays in one piece ;)

Thank you!

The ThorJack is robust and not break like that!
Next week I'm testing, I have to get a good manometer to the meter.

Thank you!
the caliber of .50 is therefore a 153cc chamber is sufficient.
With T and fittings we arrive at 192cc

The meter is 27CC
there is a rupture disc

I have thought about using a paintball tank as a hybrid chamber, but the ignition spot was a problem. Is it safe to drill a hole on a paintball tank and continue use it? On the bottles label says to not drill any holes on the bottle.

a hole that is 1/8 in which is screwed a steel high-pressure connection.
On all pressure tanks it is marked "not to drill and not to impact" paintball cylinders have much impact ...
But we must be prudent so testing at a safe distance

Do you think my BBQ will be powerful enough to Mix40?

It is one of the smaller ones, not a 0.8l ;)

On the bottles label says to not drill any holes on the bottle.

So anything that doesn't have such a label is Ok to drill holes in ? :D

The hole in the tank will reduce its max pressure, however it should still be pretty high and fine for most applications. 40x mixes might be pushing it, I guess we'll soon find out ;)

I don´t think a BBQ ignitor will work with 4ox

I managed 16-17x with a cigarette lighter piezo. BBQ piezos are bigger and presumably have more "vavavoom" but I doubt they would be good for 40x.

As I said before though, I'm pretty sure that 15-20x will be more than enough power, especially compared to the pneumatics you are used to ;)
