Air Intake

Unread postAuthor: BlackOps » Mon Feb 26, 2007 7:05 pm

8) Hi this is my first post! A years ago when I was 10 I built a pneumatic cannon. It had a slow messed up ball valve and a bike inter tube to pump air into it. It didn't work... :cry: So now I have decided to make a new cannon like this one http://members.aol.com/sph911/spud/electronic.html It looks easy but the only problem is that I don't want the bike valve to be pushed in again... So what do I use as a intake valve and what glue/epoxy do I use? Also in the control/project box what do I do to get the switches in (ie: dill a hole)

Before everyone tares you apart for asking this, remember, you need to research first and if you can't find anything on the topic then post the question. Get a threaded shrader valve.

Ok first.

Welcome

Second.

He uses a U Shaped solenoid valve.it will be alot easier to just use a normal inline one that can be modded with a blow gun to get rid of the wires and batteries etc.
You can get threaded bike valves that you just thread into the chamber.

Look at the top right corner of the forum and you'll find a button called wiki......Image

Click on that and spend the rest of your day looking over all the stuff on there.

Welcome to the forums
