Air Pressure Question

Unread postAuthor: GrafixBoy » Thu Nov 01, 2007 10:31 pm

I can only get about 100psi in my steel cannon. How do you get more than that in there?. I have a regular ole shop air compressor.

is your regulator set at 100 or is that all your compressor can push? that and is there any leaks in your gun?

co2 tanks are prety cheap and you can get fills upto about 800psi from one, should also get a palmers stabilizer to reg it to whatever psi you need. they also come in different sizes depending on how portable you want to be. you can also get a couple of scuba tanks, a fill station and a palmers reg . then you can fill from 0 to 900 psi. an air booster that will boost your shop compressor will run you about $1,200 to $2,000 and a scuba compressor will be about $3,000 and give you 3k to 5k psi depending on wich one you get .

Yeah I figured it was your compressor that was just limited in the ability to pressre it up. Good luck with your new one
