Toolies piston idea

Unread postAuthor: squeaks » Sun Dec 17, 2006 10:40 am

Okay, for those of us who haven't seen the toolies piston, here it is. http://my.freeway.net/~toolies/

I happen to have 2-4' sections of 4" pipe. My idea is to make two freakin' long toolies pistons with 2 1/2" porting. Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

*slaps self in face*. oops, read it wrong.

why not use them as air chambers, and make a regular piston valve?

Cost my dear friend, cost. It's much cheaper to make 2 toolies, which don't require expensive tees, than 2 regular pistons. Otherwise I would be making 2-3" porting valves.
