Unread postAuthor: Redcoat » Thu Aug 23, 2007 2:42 am

If you had a decent search you would find that, yes you do find them at bunnings in Aussie.

Bunnings is a sure fire way to get one,modding them is a different thing all together as they all have guide rods.

OK thanks for that.Yeah MrCrowley but if you go on the bunnings site they dont have a searchable online DATABASE.

Edit- After seeing this it seems pretty damn easy :wink: (wow,that was arrogant of me)\\

Oh and do they have the pressure rated hose and those barb things?
(you should know if you've modded one before).

Thanks,
Redcoat.

Yeah they don't unfortunately. Mine was $14 and my blowgun was ~$15 and it came with a gauge from 0-220psi. Its easy to mod, i just put the hole off-center and it works like a charm, but you have to make sure the mod wont interfere with the diaphragm and spring. There is a different way to put the mod in the center but i don't know it.

Its extremely easy to mod a sprinkler valve that has a guide rod, without having to tap a hole to the side.
I give Credit to experament_u2 for this method, bend the guide rod :D....

There are plenty of ways to mod sprinkler valves with guide rods,fill the guide rod hole and put a small equalization hole in it.take out the guide rod,cut it shorter and bend it around the hole in the diaphram.I might make a tutorial one it.

Is there any problems taking the solenoid out, then block up the hole which delivers the air after it's been released by the solenoid and screwing the blowgun in where the solenoid used to be?

Thanks,

Take out the solenoid,fill in all the holes that connect it to the pilot area/chamber/barrel.Unless you plan to use the no drill method of moding.
