One for the Australian members - 2" BSP threaded at end

Unread postAuthor: evilvet » Fri May 27, 2011 11:18 pm

Hi all

I am looking for some 2" BSP threaded pipe sections, if you are familiar with the 1" lengths at 1 foot, 2 foot etc they sell in Bunnings you know what I mean.

(Funny how I still describe stuff in imperial after doing metric for nearly forty years)

Any suggestions including elbows, end caps etc would be great

Thanks

I recently found the exact size you're looking for at a small plumbing store near me. Try the smaller stores, I looked at all the big stores and I couldn't find threaded pipe.

Why such a large chamber? Unless you're going for several shots. And why only 20bar, the pipe should handle 40.

20 bar is all my current compressor can provide. Multiple shots is the hope for the bigger chamber.

The port valve is electronically triggered and I can adjust the open time from 5 to 50 milli seconds so I am hoping to not waste all the air in one shot
