it is there beacause I didnt have a 3/4in coupling to use where that tee is so I used the tee and the tee needed blocking off at the one end and I just had that conveinently and put it on it reduces to 1/2in threaded so Ill take it off next time I get to go to hardware store and get a 1/2in plug to replace it.
Happy now

no kidding, mercer island?!! your parents are holding back big time, only the rich people live on mercer island...

EDIT:if you feel that they are not paying you enough, either tell them you want a raise or just get a job that pays better than 8 bucks.

You would be surprised by how difficult it is to become employed in some cities and towns.

The town that I live in is based around 3 organizations that own and operate groups of mills (pulp, paper, and lumber). Two of those organizations recently closed their corresponding mills, leaving 70% of the town's adult population unemployed. With the town dying, for a person who does not even have a high school diploma, finding a job is essentially impossible.

You never know.

Spudblaster it is kinda like that here except without the 70% of the adult pop unemployed or the town dying thing(its actually thrivingwith rich people.

All the places are already full of teenagers slightly older than me and they would be preferable over a 14 year old so it makes it very hard to find any type of job not that I have tryed or anything.

Nice cannon.

BTW with the pilot volume, I hold <A HREF="http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/viewtopic,p,100616.html#100616">my cannon</a> exactly the same way, yet probably have a 1/8 of the pilot volume.

Yeah thats because you have a "stock" which extends it back a bit so you can hold it the same way with smaller pilot volume.I wouldnt say it is 1/8the amount more like 1/3 or 1/2 the amount of pilot volume.

*clutches heart*

<i>hukkkkkk</i>

For some reason I'm reminded of how Rowan Atkinson ends this sketch :D

I'm willing to forgive some pilot volume for the sake of ergonomics but this seems to be taking it to a new level, I'm with MrCrowley - but hey, if it works ;p
