Erm..make a piston valve? What are you trying to ask.

For connections there is epoxy, JFC (just for copper), compression fittings and threads.

If you couldn't find one valve on the whole forum, then the lightest way to put it is failure.

I just found out you had another topic on the gun you're about to make (metal)http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/please-help-me-making-a-pneumatic-cannon-noob-here-t18799.html

Are you referring to that cannon? If its that cannon you're building then it just needs a simple ball valve, but if you're building a NEW piston cannon then the how-to section has many how-tos.

I can't solder either and i use threaded fittings, and epoxy.

You have to be specific on what valve you're referring to and provide more information :)

use galvanised threaded parts (a.k.a. malleable iron here)

send a mesage to Brian the Brain or psycix they should be able to sell you a QEV (they are from netherlands)

no that gun is almost done but it shoots not that hard enough.
but i want to make a new one with a good valve.

sorry but what is 'epoxy'?

I've got a idea, the green thing is a flexible pipe.

eggboom language can be a problem becasue most of members are from English speaking countries... there are quite a lot of members are from Europe and other parts of the world but we all use English for communication... I know it's hard to express your ideas in a foreign language but there are a few members form holland/netherlands here and I am sure they will be happy to help you out...

send a message to brian the brain


as a valve for your first gun you can use a ball valve there are many other much better valves but ball valves are cheap and easily available so quite a lot of people use them on their first guns


ohh.. BTW.. Welcome to spudfiles eggboom
