Note the conduit nut used as a lock nut for the elbow to the valve.

A lot of us use schraeder valve because we fill with track pumps or shock pumps for high pressure. Its much easier disconnecting a schraeder valve at 300psi then QD's.

Atattack;

Stay tuned for another variation you may like using a Schrader valve and a Tee.

Here is more food for thought.
When you get the tire inflators, get two. One will be used as trigger and the other to be used as tire inflator or in your case chamber filler.

I added a shoulder rest because originally I also had one on mine.
Use piping foam insulation over the metal bracket.

OK, I like that idea. That way there is no gauge on gun to get knocked around. Just use tire inflator for gauge, nice idea. So would I then just put a schraeder valve into elbow instead of the male quick connect?

Great idea, dewey. I have ordered most of the parts for this over the past two days. Can't wait to get this gun together.

I decided to go with the shoulder layout just to try something out different. Figured it I did not like the layout I had the pieces to rework it without having to put to much trouble into it. We will see. I am hoping to have gun complete within 2-3 weeks. Waiting on some valves and fittings to be made/shipped. Thanks again for all your help with CAD drawings/design. Looking forward to posting some pics on here of the completed project.

Here is another variation using all 2-1/2 inch chamber components.

Did you get TrueView operational to experience the 3D CAD views?
