working on a valve

Unread postAuthor: imforcedtodothis » Tue Jan 16, 2007 1:38 pm

i plan to make a valve like this one: http://www.geocities.com/izzydoesit_99/YASLA.html

where could i find the rubber disk, metal disk and spring?
also,a goyen high flow valve behind the piston be better than just a blowgun, right?
