yea, I really like that ball valve, I feel like I have seen that cannon before, oh yea, I have gone to your website before, just wondering, um, about how much again did you shell out on the whole pnuematic ram setup?

i would guess it would open it about as fast as a sprinkler, and the flow would be GREATLY improved, that would probably be a better alternative if you cant easily get sprinkler valves in your area

well... he had a sprinkler valve on the ram thing.

But he had a great idea, I was thinking about making a exo-skeleton like that ram, to help me lift weight and punch through brick or something( not with my hand), or even help a robot walk / me run faster.

I really like the valve opening ram idea,I may try a version of that.I have a
small cannon I built recently that has a spring ,latch and trigger mechanism that works well.When the valve is closed ,the latch which also has a spring pulls itself in position so then you just add air and a projectile and pull the trigger.It doesn't look like much but works well.
I also built a stock for it out of 2" wood. I have a larger cannon with a two inch manual valve that would be a good candidate for what I see in this posting.
