Diaphragm Setup

Unread postAuthor: Shrimphead » Mon Jul 24, 2006 4:29 pm

Here is the setup I am planning to use for my first diaphragm cannon. Does this look like it will work? I just want to be sure. Also, is there anything I should check before I glue everything up? Thanks.

you should try not to use glue. Get a female adapter and a threaded plug. but other than that the design will work

Anybody else? I really want more than one opinion just to make sure. It's all ready to be glued and I'm pretty sure that I can solve any problems that might come up without spending too much more money. I just want to be positive that there is nothing wrong with it.

SpudStuff, why dominate the thread??? Post count?

Can you give me some details on this picture? Honestly, you can't really answer anything until you give specific details on pipe sizes, diaphragm material, pilot valve flow, etc.

When did I say that?

P.S. - just for proof, what's the password then???

Back on topic, Shrimphead, what's the specifications on the valve?

EDIT: spelling.

EDIT^2: and I didn't type "Post Count?" in my post. Someone must have edited that in there, (cough cough Pimpmann cough...)

Well, even if you did figure out the password... So what? All the pictures have been posted on spudfiles anyway, so their not "secret" anymore.

Once again, proove it. What's the password?
