Any Golf Ball Clips Out There? Edit Piston help too i guess

Unread postAuthor: Northir » Fri Nov 27, 2009 2:22 pm

Ive been working on my next golf ball cannon, ans was trying to add in a clip of some kind, i was thinking of a ball valve drilled out, or a t ball valve(couldnt find that one) but i cant find a ball valve that will take a golf ball the same way a Golf Ball barrel will


EDIT: Piston is pausing before violently seating

You could sand down a 1 1/2 tee and drill a hole in the barrel for the GB you could have some tubing on top of the tee and fill it with golfballs you just slide the tee back and a ball drops in then slide it forward again. You could also o-ring it for a better seal.

wanted to avoid the sliding t thing, since a ball valve would give the best possible seal me thinks, and not to be rude techie, but this is in the Pneumatic section so it wouldnt be a combustion, and its PVC, never seen a metal pneumatic GB cannon

You want a magazine, not a clip. A clip is a loading aid.

I'd use a tee with a bolt and a pneumatic cylinder to actuate it. The barrel/magazine can be made from SDR pvc. McMaster also has stainless and aluminum tubes in good sizes if yous earch (sch.10)
