Pneumatic help :/

Unread postAuthor: jmeyer1022 » Sat Nov 15, 2008 10:34 am

I decided I'd continue my Advanced Combustion cannon plan pretty close to done just gotta get a few more fittings for the direct propane inject and its done.

But I bought a Sprinkler valve a few days ago and wanted to make an easy pneumatic cannon. It's a 1" inline rainbird 100 already modified. I went to home depot and was looking for a 1" male adapter to run to a 2"x 1" bushing which would go into my chamber and then again off the other side using a male threaded adapter. I can't find any 1 to 1.5 Inch bushings. How do I go about sizing from 1 to 1.5 for my barrel. I've worked alot with PVC just never 1" piping use to 1.5"and 3".

Perhaps use threaded black iron fittings between threaded pvc to get to the right pipe size?

It's a pain when you cannot find the right parts isn't it? :(
