Slasher Valve teaser...

Unread postAuthor: SpudsMcGee » Mon Mar 09, 2009 6:24 pm

I've been working on this valve for about 3 days on paper and I finally got my mom to take me to Lowes today, to get my parts for the valve itself. I just put the pieces together for a dry fit, and of coarse I took some pictures. The valve is set in a 1-1/4 inch tee with a 3/4 inch porting. The piston is a 3/4 inch coupler I will mod. I am planing on using it for a paintball gun, which I am working out the schematics as you read this (unless you're from the future...). Please leave feedback on how I could improve it, because as I said its only a dry fit (No glue, for nubs). Or just ask questions about the design, even though its pretty basic. Thanks in advance.

Edit: Look at the sugar cookie I just made representing my state. Its West Virginia, if you didn't know. And yes, it is an actual state.

Me too! But the cookie tasted really good.
And thanks for replying, the anticipation was killing me.

That would probably be your best bet, as you could then add an O-ring easier...

Valve looks good. What do you plan on piloting it with? I live in West Virginia too. What part do you live in?

I think I'd put my money on an amoeba rather than West Virginia but the valve is well done anyway.
