For power, you'll need some stupidly high pressure. I'm making myself a new pump as we speak. Should be good for atleast 600psi.

Your piston valve looks really good mate. Keep up the good work!

Good job!


Uhh... Did the author ever make reference to the valves power?

Any cleanly built piston valve will grant power to the gun it is used in, also it is made out of metal so high pressures can be used.
Again, note that I think it will be relatively powerful for its size.

Well the that "epoxy" still hasn't set and I've left it curing for about 2 1/2 days. Does anyone know a good online epoxy resin supplier?

He is actually useing this as the pilot valve. This is going to actuate his larger CO2 powered marble cannon made from full steel. I look forward to seeing this.

PS I tried as hard as I could to put in all of the C's and V's but if there are a couple missing it is because my keyboar is S***.

I assume you're not aware that they do a mix like that for flower arranging that's specifically designed to be slightly squidgy.

It's a "water substitute" for fake flowers. Looks like water, but doesn't mean the flowers are set rock solid, so it can look quite convincing - unless you poke it, in which case you find it's a kind of gel.

Actually, the stuff I've seen that looks like "flower water" is hard as a rock. I imagine it could be possible to mix up different batches that would be soft or hard based on what proportion you mixed the harder and resin....or it possibly be different products all together.

I have seen some rock solid stuff, but some brands are always a gel AFAIK.
I'm not entirely sure why they do it, but they do.
