If he can't get pressure rated pipe then what the hell is using as a chamber?
And to tell the truth, this idea is just stupid.
I barely trust 500 psi in small diameter metal pipe/

Sorry if this sounds stupid but couldn't you just pop off the border and take it back with you?

That's what guys over here (UK) do....take the ferry to France and fill the car with cheap alcohol and cigarettes and then drive back and sell it on.

I am using steel pipe and fittings for the pressure chamber, which are 2" in diameter. As I said in a previous post, I have decided not to take this thing past 350 psi.

Why do you think this idea is stupid? It should work very well.
