If you have a lot more questions in mind, colty, make a thread called 'Colty's Great Thread' and ask all your questions there. Just bump the topic when you have a new question.

Yellow Pages.

Use it. They do have an internet site where you can even search terms.
The supplier doesn't have to be local if you haven't already figured that out, you can buy things overseas even. They will post to you if they say they post to America.

Stop looking locally, ring/email pneumatic suppliers in the US, any major companies you find.

No actually, you could always build one :roll:

If you don't know how, RESEARCH! We didn't learn the stuff we know from giving up.

Here's one of the best tips no one else has given you, I will...CALM DOWN, relax, take a deep breath and slow down. I can see your frustration coming out in your posting and that ain't good, frustration also effects your work performance.

If you can successfully solvent weld by studying what ever it was you studied to do it, there is no reason you can't do it with anything else. Even if the 1st attempt doesn't turn out, you will easily see what went wrong and the next one will be better. That's called trail and error, it's how we all learn this hobby :D .

Far out, I'm glad we didn't get a new topic for this.

Do your electrical cables carry compressed air or not?

The gray electrical pipes are not rated for pressure,
but have been used for spudding before.
They're sunlight resistant and usually have a flared coupling end built in.

I think the sch 40 for example can handle similar pressure as the sch 40 pressure rated PVC pipe. But not for sure.

BTW, Do you mind if I ask my stupid questions in your stupid questions thread sometime???
Cool MrC. gave you a stupid question thread! 8) :lol: 8)

Dunno, search. Heaps of nerf launchers on the forum. Just because you can post stupid qustions in this thread doesn't mean you don't have to search.

1/2" sch80 PVC or CPVC
1/2" CPVC (copper alternative)
5/8" x 1/2" Polyester (PETG)
Visipak or similar PETG sold by Nerf suppliers
17/32 brass tube

The list is huge. Basically look for anything with an I.D. of .5" to .527". The commercial Nerf darts that you're referring to will fit best in the larger sizes.

If you haven't realized it already, most Nerf enthusiasts don't even use commerical Nerf darts anymore. They make their own from 1/2" foam cord that's normally sold as a caulk saver in hardware stores. The actual size of this foam varies greatly depending on which brand you buy, so do some testing.
