Nice; good job containing primer, and pretty nice design overall.

It's worth noting, however, that you are using DWV fittings on the air chamber. I'd reccomend re-builing that part if you can, just for saftey reasons.

Yeah i'm in Australia. The sizes and types of pipe that i can buy around me are very limited. Very expensive here too.

The highest pressure i went to with this thing was about 1400 kpa. The battery i was using with tape wraped around it was destroyed. Now i am using a large screw/bolt/something with tape wraped around it.

At 130 Psi the bolt thingy did a quater turn and broke a 3/4" thick piece of pine about 2 feet long and one foot wide into two halfs. Hooray!

fast cannon not to come down on you. but the rules that if you don't really have something to add to the topic you shouldn't post it.

I do like this gun though....
