Find a pneumatic place, or build one..

Look up Clide's semi before you ask how, it used a sleeve valve to fill/pilot the piston..and no, not the GB semi.

Have you asked the creator of the RevoSemi where he got his from? PM him or something.

Instead of searching for sleeve valves, search for pneumatic suppliers websites, then search their products. And like UKSGC said before, try ringing a few stores, or even emailing.

If that doesn't work, make one. Only option.

ok fine i guess ill make one but will somebody help me understand how to make one? i will make it out of steel and i need it to seal up to 150-200 psi is it just a tube with a exhaust and a sleev over it? if its like that then i dont know if it will work because i will have a constant flow of air and all my air in the chamber will run out before the sprinkler gets piloted


il just ask do you think 1/2 will work ok i doubt it because it is so small though

First off, you ain't gonna get 150 - 200 psi from a standard sprinkler valve. The pressure will be 120 max.

Next, to fire a 1" sprinkler valve, a 1/2" anything will do. A 1/4" anything will do.

As far as sleeve valves go, those things are pretty easy to make. Technically, this breech loader is a sleeve valve. Duplicate that to make it work for you.
