12g Co2 Guide v2 - PDF and Doc.

Unread postAuthor: Davidvaini » Fri Jan 23, 2009 11:27 pm

Hey I made a quick little guide for 12g co2 cartridges and their uses. I also made a cheat sheet for 12g co2 filling for different size pipes. It is still a work in progress as I will add more information.

Here is a quick little preview of whats in the Word and PDF files:

Attached is the zip folder containing the different documents.

Comments are welcome!

After you've bled some gas off, about 800psi.

So yeah lets face it.. We have seen calculations before in cubic inches and that doesn't really help the average spuder.

The average spuder works with PVC or at least some pipes with similar sizes. That is why I decided to make this little cheat sheet. So the average spuder that wants to know how much psi will be in his 2" Diameter by 12" long PVC tank will have an quick reference to look at.

Might this not be better placed in this thread?

Good of Ragnarok and yourself to go to the effort.

It has other information and will have further information added later on in the documents that don't pertain to that thread.

Now my next question is how does one get the co2 into a piece of pipe? I know that there are bike tire inflator deals, but is there any other way to get it out?

I'll be honest and say i have kinda gotten out of spudding, but i do check in every now and then for things like this. Recently they opened up a new plumbing store and im thinking i might build a really nice golf ball cannon soon, and this is perfect for what i want, but i need some way to get it into the chamber.

thanks for posting this info.

you can either get the co2 into the chamber by a co2 inflator which is shown in the document or a co2 quick charge adapter which dumps the whole thing in. I would recommend the co2 inflator therefore you dont have to put all of it for one shot.

This is far easier to understand right off the bat. And very useful also.

Good work. :)

Very nice, and I saw a little reference to me (the average spudder with the 2" diameter, 12 inch long pvc tank). This will be extremely people for lazy people such as me.

perhaps a sticky is in order?

I know something like this would of been extremely helpful numerous times, especially starting out in the hobby.
