Guess what I got in the mail today

Unread postAuthor: Jimmy K » Mon Jan 23, 2012 6:15 pm

Here's a hint:

a 5lb CO2 tank, a 3 way solenoid valve, a 3/4" QEV, lots of metal pipe fittings, a dual gauge regulator, a backpack (for the tank), and some other stuffs.

I had to get my cannon building fix while at college... I guess this will help.

I have the same question. It's one of those Uxcell valves... I think it's the same seller JSR got his <20 dollar semi auto parts. It appears to be good quality.... but you can't judge by that.

Here is the DCV:

It seems to be a solid directional valve. I haven't tested it yet and probably won't until next week (differential equations apparently require work).

It grew a little bit.

And yeah, I think it's time to invest in a real camera.

hmm it looks like one those chinease valves...
In fact it might be one - it's a known practice you know, I've seen them being sold for like 35$ or so in Poland

so just because yours was almost twice as expensive as the cheapo chinease valve doesn't mean it isn't one :D

The valve is made in China. It has a very visible "MADE IN CHINA" sticker on it. It seems to work well for the $35 I paid (including shipping). The not-so-cool part is that it's 24 volt. It's such an inconvenient voltage.

Got the main launcher assembly completed. Working on barrels and a net gun now.

The Chinese DCV works well.
