Anybody use a pnuematic toggle?

I was looking at McMaster part number 3662T24. Hopefully this pic is good (if not, I'll try to find another and edit the post later)....

[couldn't get pic to work but uploaded it]

...Looks like it could make a very nice trigger for a pneumatic. Anybody got any first hand information?

I have used the smaller mcmaster 6791T21 for something completely different(ish). It seemed decent, although the 10-32 ports were a pain. My connections to it leaked like a sieve.

I noticed you linked to a manual return valve. Were you aware of this? They do make spring return valves. you know, in case you wanted semi auto or something :wink: :wink:

Is this basically a ball valve activated in a slightly different manner?

no; It appears to be a poppet type valve. Kind of what some people do with the clippard push button valves with the thumb attachments. My previous post is mostly invalid, as that was a different style of valve. (miniature style)

That valve in the picture looks to have too much travel to be a comfortable trigger.

I bought something vaguely similar with the same trigger intentions but haven't used it so far.

No need for semi. Application is a blast pressure gauge functionality checker.

but you could have a semi-automatic blast pressure gauge functionality checker. In case you needed to check a bunch of blast pressure gauges. :idea:
