Mini Piston Valve

Unread postAuthor: Kobl » Thu Jul 17, 2008 1:49 pm

No, it's not a help topic *hooray*

Here's the 1/4" 6mm porting piston valve I just built to actuate the piston valve for my upcoming all steal c02 fed marble cannon.

The piston is just hot glue at the moment but I just got the epoxy poured so a cast epoxy piston should be a comin' in the next 24 hours or so.

Heres a pic:

Nice and simple.

Having both the sealing face and the piston chute adjustable - since they are threaded - you can toy with the piston stroke. One element of piston valves that are set in standard piston construction.

Thanks for posting, giving me ideas...

:D

You guys won't be getting any more info until I get my epoxy casting setup worked it out. It's really pissing me off, my 1/2" 'poxy piston is taking well over 24 hours to dry, I think I got the mix hideously wrong. :/

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

Hold on a tick I'll post a pic.
Its not legit so to say but its the only stuff I could find without ordering online.

I think my main problem is that I just eye-balled the mix, I'm gonna use a syringe this time around though.

The wrapper:

Um is that meant for flowers? Can't have very much strength can it? I think a box of epoxy with everlasting elegance on it shouldn't be used for pressure applications.

It looks like it could be casting resin, but i would just use normal 2 dollar epoxy if that doesnt work.
