900 PSI?

Id say 500 is the limit.... What compells you to use 900 PSI and a blowgun anyway? (im curious and exited :D )

I personally stray away from shop blowguns at higher pressures. Its easier to jsut youse a BV. Not to mention I dont trust those blowguns.....

A standard blowgun might hold up at 900PSI, but I certainly wouldn't want to be the one to test it, unless remotely. At that pressure, you'll need to exert about 50 pounds of force on the handle to open it.

seriously start with something simpler and safer... even much lower pressures can be dangerous... when a pressure hose ruptures near you at 300 psi you'll know what I mean...

blowguns are cheap and designed to work at 150 psi (ussualy)... using them at 500 psi is already pushing the limits a little too much... you have to understand that some stuff might work ok above their pressure rating... but 'might' does not mean they always work...

I might be wrong but I think you are simply irresponsible

They start to leak at higher pressures...
and I believe that the discussion of making such a device is against forum rules.

i would say no to using a blowgun at that high pressure, so a pressure washer handle or ball valve would be your other options.

900psi for a standard blowgun?

I say go for it. They haven't handed out the Darwin Awards yet this year, and I'd say you'd be a shoo-in.

So seven people said no, but you still went for it? Why did you even ask?
