If you use the normal compressor hose, I don't think you would have too much trouble with leaks, as long as you tighten the hose clamp a good bit.

It's also overkill, but you could use pressure washer hose if you can't find anything else.

Double Post... Disregard that.

Its done!! but its late to put up pics and im a little light headed from the fumes. :duckie: :drunken: (I think the duck is cool and i have never seen it posted)

But i tried to test it out and got some problems,

1. Too big pilot volume
2. Didnt lube the seat pipe all the way, which caused a jam, which can be why the piston didnt pilot.

3. Need to fix sealing face.

Although minor problems, they are annoying, but soon enough, i shall have power!!. :twisted:

Clean gun, I want my next project to be a copper gun similar to this (probably, I keep changing my mind though). Anyway, hope you get it working soon.

Ok i got it working (hooray) but i still wont have pics, and the gun is going to be Out of order for now, because i need to the piston (cast a new hot glue piston) and make it bigger.

It shoots pretty nicely but i get some problems with the sealing face.

Dont worry i got everything under control and soon i will get 300 psi.
