Plexiglass piston

Unread postAuthor: Ranger » Mon May 31, 2010 3:50 pm

I was looking at http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/3-inch- ... t3331.html

And it got me thinking, the little PVC discs are made from boiled and flatened PVC. I wonder if its possible to make them out of plexiglass sheet? I went and bought 4 sheets of .08 thick plexi. I'm going to try to make a 3" piston with a 2" coupler and some of those discs.

I did a search on the forum and didnt come up with anythingso I was wondering what you guys thought.
