Felt Guilty Not Posting This

Unread postAuthor: ammosmoke » Wed Mar 05, 2008 1:13 am

Well, I saw this, and I decided that it just wouldn't be nice to not put it. I don't know what sort of operation speed these have, but they look very cool. I live somewhat close to here, so if you are interested something just might be able to work out.

EDIT: Holy SHIOT umm that is like 101 or so things... In one auction! Uh oh.

Valves of 1337 complexity

As it's officially listed as Boeing surplus, I doubt it.

Heck, I'd have those at that price. That's valves for only a couple of bucks each.

I imagine you could use a couple yourself, then you could easily shift the rest to other spudders at a very tidy profit.

One is 1/2"NPT.
The other is 1-1/2" NPT.

I don't believe these are worth it unless you want 1/2" valve.

why exactly :shock:

1.5" valves for very very cheap, that have the potential to make for some very fast golfballs :D

this is nothing short of a 'deal of the month', if i had been anywhr near there i would be down there picking them up :D :D

If you read the specs close enough there are little things like:

"Must be mounted vertically with solenoid up--------"
This may limit your mounting options.

"Double construction on diaphragm to prevent leakage -----"
This seems like it will slow down opening time.

I just feel there are better choices to come along. If these were the 8353 series pulse valves, I would bid on it in a heartbeat and have them shipped to me.

I guess if you lived real close it may be worth it and were willing to gamble how well the 1-1/2" will work. That is just my opinion based on reading and analyzing the specs.

Maybe the valves would work in a hybrid? They are combustible gas valves.
