One More Pen Gun

Unread postAuthor: clemsonguy1125 » Fri Jul 23, 2010 12:38 pm

After seeing the multitude of pen guns posted in the last few weeks I decided to try building one. Right now all testing is done at 80-100PSI until I get my shock pump, then Ill up the pressure. The video below is a 80 PSI shot with a small nail at a Pepsi can.

Chamber-7.14mm Brakeline
Fill-Schrader
Pilot-Schrader
Piston-a piece of a rubber spongebob key chain
Power-Shot a toothpick across the room at 150 PSI

Looks good but I would've liked to see the piston before it went in. Awaiting damage...

I bought a normal one, put it i my drill and held a file to it until all the rubber had be shaved off, than roughed it up a little so the epoxy would bond to it

You should be able to position the pump head such that the schrader valve closes immediately after the clamping lever is opened, preventing gas loss from the pilot chamber. I had a similar problem with my first pneumatic, until I figured out how to connect the pump properly.

I'd think about slowing down if I were you. In 6 months, you've moved up to 33rd on the all time posts list, surpassing many people who have been here several times longer; and your rate of 8.4 posts/day is 2nd only to JSR, and dwarfs the rate of most regular members by a factor of 3 or 4.

Not trying to harp on you, just some friendly advice. The forum isn't really designed for social chatting, and making fewer, more well thought out posts would do a lot more for your reputation around here.

Sorry for going off-topic Clemson, now back to your regularly scheduled programming.

Good job on making it work.

As to removing the fill valve without piloting,this cheap shock pump design (the ones with the purple knob must... resist... temptation... for innuendo! gah! that allows you to independently depress the stem)

Either nails wrapped in tape, or at higher pressures steel ball bearings of the appropriate diameter.

I like the background music in the video :P
Pretty nice, I want to see how it holds up at higher pressure.

Looks very nice clemonsguy, how did you end up spacing the barrel from the chamber?

And I completely agree spudblaster, people who make a few well thought out and helpful posts earn a lot more respect in my book.
