First test shots!

Unread postAuthor: Alex345 » Wed Feb 10, 2016 12:41 pm

Ok so i tried making this post 3 times in a row, accidentally closing this page and losing all i wrote twice... Third attempt, i don't feel like writing it all again so here's some pwetty pictures!

Since there is little description of the gun, feel free to ask anything and i will happily answer! Now i need to get away from my PC before it ends up in front of this cannon...

Sorry for the small pic's, i had to REALLY shrink em down before spudfiles would accept them... Vac was shot with a potato at around 16-20 bars, the bag inside was full too so it absorbed quite a bit of energy!

nice, what valve have you got there?

I don't think the capacity and size for picture uploads on this site has changed in the past 10 years, I'd recommend posting the picture on an external website, but make sure it's a reliable host it's really a shame when you browse the archives and see useful diagrams that are are lost forever.

The valve has always been a bit of a mystery... I found it in a junk store and basically paid for the weight of the brass. It has no brand or markings other than a code indicating what type of brass it's made from.

Here's a link to a topic i started after i bought it
