Surely it's easier and cheaper to buy from eBay?

Are you sure?

Shouldn't it be:

1. QEV - Le QEV
2. slide valve - Le slide valve
3. 3 way valve - Le 3 way valve

:D :D :D

Sadly you'll probably have a hard time finding any of these parts in shops, they tend to be things one can only get through ordering in or online, and they tend to be expensive.

Well you might be able to get them in 1/8" sizes if you find a paintball shop, but they'll probably be pricey.

Depending on how long you're there, I'd suggest looking on ebay.co.uk and getting items shipped to France.
Ebay.fr isn't fantastic, it doesn't get used anywhere near as much, cultural differences I reckon ;)

You could check leboncoin.fr just in case you are lucky, but it seems unlikely.

As Mimikool suggested technobots.co.uk is reasonably cheap comapred to most other options (including the local ones).

A 3 way valve, is generally called "distributeur pneumatique 3/2", or replace by "electro-pneumatique" for a solenoid DCV.
You will find gardening solenoid valves in hardware stores, but they are just the same as ones found elsewhere...


Oh where you staying ?


Edit: Haha, no JSR was joking :D

What Mimikool said, my reply was tongue in cheek ;)

Really you should persuade an adult to help you buy from eBay...

Most of the French guys guns iv seen use home made piston valves they just call them Qevs, i don't think you would find many stores that sell stock there.

if you find out where the place your staying at is then look, for pneumatics place's around there, like:
Festo, Parker Pneumatics, Norgen and Clippard. Then get some French dude to give them a call.

can you get your parents/brothers/sisters to buy stuff of eBay.

Mmm actually, I have a couple of 3/8"-1/4" QEVs spare, and also some 3/2 and 5/2 valves I probably wont be using which I could post to you while I'm still in France.

All of these parts were bough while I was in the UK ;)
