Question on paint grenades:

Unread postAuthor: judgment_arms » Fri Dec 21, 2007 8:44 pm

Can anybody tell me what the average OD on latex tubing paint grenades are, and what size tubing was used to make said grenades? Also how much paint is in ‘em to make them that size?

Thanks.

Oh in case anybody’s been wondering were I’ve been (yeah right), you’ll see as soon as I get my latest creation finished, most like before next Saturday, or at least I hope.

Marry Christmas y’all!

Depends on the grenade.
If your looking to home make a couple then the usual stuff is 3/8"OD x 1/4"ID(Lowes).You'll get a full expansion of about 2" wide maybe a little less.Thing is, latex tubing expands twice.The first expansion will be about 1 1/4" wide and the second 2".

As far as the fill goes that all depends on the length of tubing and your filling apparatus.If you use a syringe then you'll only get to the first expansion and from there a 3" long tube will hold 3 oz. of paint.If using a pneumatic filler than its anybody's guess.

Going to be fun to see the latest and greatest.I took a break to build my newest.Guess we'll have to have our own mini competition.Paintballer to paintballer :D
