Chamber Question

Unread postAuthor: spiffypotato » Sun Apr 17, 2011 11:08 am

Hey guys i'm building me an all metal, piston valve ( barrel sealing) 3/4 inch with changeable barrels but i'm just starting with a 3/4 inch barrel and i'll probably be running at like 250 psi but maybe more yadda yadda. the question is what should i use as a chamber for it that will connect fairly easily to standard fittings? is it probably most cost effective to get a larger diameter galvanized steel pipe with endcaps or something?

its easier to use steel than copper if you dont have the soldering equipment, just use something like a 3/4 galvanized steel pipe with an endcap and its should be a pretty decent chamber
