Pneumatic Piston

<div align="center">PNEUMATIC PISTON

Provided By Luckythirteen - <a href="http://www.koolpages.com/potatohell/">http://www.koolpages.com/potatohell/ </a>

This is my newest pneumatic. Finally I have a piston valve to call my own. This is the valve that I have been working on that is very easy to make. Anyone who has ever glued PVC together can make this valve. It looks a little odd, but I wasn't trying to make it look good. All I wanted was a valve that performs great and is easy to build. By these standards, this valve is perfect.

A little sick humor. That's my cat in the top right corner.

Here is a close up of my valve. It sticks out a lot in the back because I chose not to use a 3&quot; male plug and drill and thread the holes. Like I said, I wanted it to be buildable with as few tools as possible. Since I don't have a tap, I found this way to be a lot easier.

it'd probably cost more to build one till you got it just right, plus you know joel does this for a living and tests them before he sells them

Nice piston valve - I built one just like it. And yes, it was powerful. The piston inside it was too massive though. The valve stops weren't enough. Unfortunately it exploded on me and pieces of it went everywhere - even over top of my 2 story house. I survived with miraculously only a cut to the cheek. PLEASE BE CAUTIOUS WITH THIS DESIGN!

Now I own one a Supah Valve and would say there's nothing compared to it...unless you take a look at the 4" Supah Joel hasn't released yet. :lol:
