1.5" to 3/4" Sprinkler valve question

Unread postAuthor: TheTrooper » Tue Nov 20, 2007 11:12 pm

Hey, today i was at ACE hardware and i couldn't find any piece that would reduce down a 1.5" to 3/4" and screw into a 3/4" sprinkler valve. If you know of anything please give a link to the piece or just a picture of a cannon with it. Don't get mad at me for a stupid post :cry: (First Sprinkler Pneumatic)

Why you have alot of questions there young one :banghead: You still need to learn the mastery of pneumatics. :violent1: . lol well anyway first off what is going tp be the size of the gun? Because i personally wouldnt use a 3/4 inch sprinkler vavle for something like a 2 inch barreled cannon bec i did the same as my first pneumatic but it isnt posted here on this website. Anyway, to say the truth, i found much better results with a 3/4 inch ball valve in comparison to a modified sprinkler valve. Why? Well its because of flow. S

Sprinkler valves: fast opening rate/low flow rate
Ball Valves: Low opening rate/high flow rate

So i ended up keeping the ball valve and i still have the modified sprinkler valve but that is now on my piston gun as a pilot valve. Any you should be able to find the parts you are looking for. Make sure they are pressure rated. Try Home Depot or Lowes. If you cant find them, then simply go down from a 1.5 to 1, then 1 to 3/4. You just gotta improvise. Common Sense :idea: .

Man what a fu*king dumbshit you are :angry4: :angry8: :angry6: angry9: :banghead:

Lol just kidding :D

Well sorry lol, but the barrel is 3/4" as well i already have the piece stated in another post. I've been asking a lot of questions and research cause im on a budget (kinda) and i don't want to screw up.

Yea well i can see, but for me, my first piston gun had no budget and it was all my money, and i can tell you i wasted alot of it trying to get a working gun. :(

Actually i never wasted a lot lol, the total i have spent on all my guns is about $25.00. My scrap dart gun http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/pneumat ... 11564.html
and first pneumatic which i never posted. Both ball valves so this time i want a powerful working pneumatic which can cause some real damage.
