My newest valve

Unread postAuthor: jr » Tue Feb 19, 2008 2:08 am

I know its basic but you asked to see my work!!!!

A screw here....

Blow valve where the silonid was....

And NO epoxy....

EDIT:
This is a 1" orbits jar top valve. I installed a modded blow gun ( drilled bigger hole in the brass fitting), a pressure gauge and a schrader valve. The gauge and schrader are tapped into a steel nipple. I prefer the jar top because they are easier to modd.
The rest of the cannon is being painted..

I don't get it, did you mold the valve and build it? Or just tap it for the blowgun and gauge?

I really like the idea of putting the gauge, and schrader on the sprinkler it seems cleaner(though that valve is a little dirty). Not needing to tap into the chamber is a good thing too even if you would do it through a double layer.
Ill do the same with my next cannon :P

I don't use teflon tape cuase it sucks.....I use "RETOR SEAL" it is a thick paste, when you use to much it gets sucked into the valve..
