Refillable fire extinguisher build

Unread postAuthor: warhead052 » Thu May 26, 2011 11:12 am

I have just completed a refillable fire extinguisher. I don't think that I have ever done something this cool, apart from my pneumatic rifle. I will try and post some pictures. It runs off of 3 diff parts, Compressed air, water, and the optional corn meal/flour (just so you can see the spray better).

Yeah, I kinda figured. I cant upload pics to my computer, since its linux. My camera wont accept it, so I will describe it. Picture a snap in schrader valve, just below and to the left of the fire extinguisher trigger.

What weird camera do you have that can't work with Linux. I do most all of my camera stuff with Linux.

Switching the camera to the PC mode most often will allow the connection by USB and the photos are stored in a folder. To eliminate the need for a cable, I installed a card reader so now I just plug in the card and read it like a USB drive.

The Gimp is a great photo editor. Learn to use it to crop, rotate, and resize your photos.

Tech, my camera is pretty old, so thats kind of why it wont work. Crowley, I am going to try just flour and compressed air today. That will be something to see. I will try and see if I can upload to my dads computer and try and get a video up.
