Propane Setup.

Unread postAuthor: Redcoat » Wed Aug 29, 2007 4:06 am

Hi all,

After seeing on eof Chaos's videos where he had a setup from propane straight to the chamber and had it continually flowing so it gave him and a i quote "semi auto" capability.

I was wondering how you rig from propane tank to schrader?

Thanks,

Hey
Experiment U2 has done it as well, you can ask him.
I talked to him about it, i was gonna use my co2 bike inflater and make a threaded hose from the gas cylinder to the threaded part of the tire inflater, so i leave the cylinder on and just put the inflater over the schrader(sp) and push down to fill.

Easy, find any propane (or lpg as we call it in NZ) tank fitting with a hose on it, cut it and clamp it to a shrader valve connector.

hey there man,

ill get some pics up soon but first ill explain a little.

the fittings i used where pure and simply "spare parts i had in my shed, now saying that not everyone would just have these laying around there shed or what you guys call it over there.
most of the parts where smc one touch fittings along with a few meters of smc airline and a simple gas bottle adapter, then i just knocked up a simple little 4 shot spring fed magazine (which eventually coil bound the spring making it useless ) but yep it did work, but 100-120psi just isnt me.

probably no longer than a 2 seconds the flow of these fittings and hose are pretty good, my second attempt at this i actually made another fill plug, it had a one touch fitting tapped into the end of it and that filled in about half the time.
