Blow Gun

Unread postAuthor: RBurke83 » Fri Mar 29, 2013 6:52 pm

Hey guys, my blow gun had a catastrophic failure last night while testing my new piston. This blowgun originally came out of a compressor accessory kit from Harbor Freight. I was disappointed when I took that blowgun apart and found the inner valve was plastic. Today I went there and purchased another blowgun, which was $3.75 with tax. I figured even with a plastic valve it was a cheap disposable piece to my launcher. When I got home and took it apart I was amazed to see a beautiful, cast steel valve which was extremely high flow, and other than removal of the chrome flashing, which is pretty standard for mass produced parts, it requires no internal modding. I think it was designed with max flow in mind. You guys should seriously jump on this product as it is both cheap and great quality!

Chambell Hausfield maybe and yes used for a trigger. When used for 'triggering' they are under pressure untill the cannon is fired. The seals just fail from time to time...
