Fill Valve Options

Unread postAuthor: Amazazing » Fri Jun 19, 2009 1:01 pm

Hi all,
Im building my fist pneumatic launcher and im trying to find a way to fill my gun up. If anybody could give me a list of possible fill valve and where to find them that would be great because i dont have an old bike and when i was at homedepot the lady starred at me very strangely when i asked for a shrader valve so any kind of help would be great.
thx

Shrader valves are more comonly known as tank fill valves. Look near the air compressors and such. that's where they will be.

Far cry, good find with that fitting. :)

This is the only other type that I've seen which is rated for high pressures (1000psi +)

Schrader USA Part# 6116

Rated to 3000psi.
