Valve Controller?

Unread postAuthor: Claybob86 » Wed Jan 10, 2007 9:08 pm

Im building my first pneumatic gun, and im using a RainBird 3/4" valve. What do most of you all use as the controller for it? How do i go about hooking it up?

Do you mean how we actuate them? Depends if your gonna mod it or use the solenoid. If your going to mod it we usually use a blowgun. You probably want to click the search button and type "modding a sprinkler valve" or something of that sort.

im new to making pneumatic guns and i found moding the sprinkler valve is so much better it opens alot faster and you dont need to keep using batteries

i would recommend doing it instead of using the solenoid
