Ugh, you’re a "freaking idiot!" :lol:

Now, seriously, I'm going to have to reprimand you for not searching.

Here’s a link bout it http://www.spudfiles.com/spud_wiki/inde ... le=Blowgun, and another about sprinkler valves(modified) www.spudfiles.com/spud_wiki/index.php?t ... dification

Now, on to the 'splainin'. It works by dumping the air on one side of the "diaphragm) which then created a relative vacuum (compared to chamber pressure) that sucks the diaphragm up. This then releases the air. Kind of hard to explain without a diagram, but m too lazy to draw one up.

Well if you understand a piston/diaphragm valve then you can understand how they work,as they are a chamber sealing diaphragm valve.So maybe search chamber sealing diaphragm valve Hint Hint.

Do a little research before you post something like this as there are plenty of posts explaining how they work.Also use the spudwiki its at the top right of the Home page.

I'm not going to spoon feed you and I believe not many other will either so start searching.

I'm sorry but nobody really knows for sure how a blowgun works my guess is that it is simple the trigger pushes a sheet of metal with a hole in it till the air way is completely open and if you mean how it works as a pilot valve that is simple it just lets the air out so the air on top pushes down making the air way open. both are simple to me but I'm not sure if the blow gun is more confusing.

Nobody on this forum has manners do they? There is always an experianced spuder flaming a noob. WTF!!! What they don't realize is that they were noobs once as well. In my opinion, the experianced spuders act more like noobs than they think.

Find a couple of Foxxlord's pneumatic guns, they're posted by PCGUY. PCGUY put a link to his site on all of the cannon pages which Foxxlord's guns are in. Look around his site for a link that says "Super Blowgun." It gives a diagram on the insides of one, you should be able to figure out the rest.

^^ There, that is a sensible post.
I think I should tell everyone to NOT POST UNLESS YOU HAVE SOMETHING CONSTRUCTIVE TO SAY. Seriously, this thread is turning into a flame war.

spudthug: don’t diss rna, he’s a good person, but, like allot of ppl on this forum, he is aggravated by people who don’t research. You may have done research, but from the nature of your post, it sounded like you didn’t. Now, for constructive criticism. never. I repeat, never call some one a buthole. Its just plain lame. Use a better insult...I wont give you examples because I would be a bad influence*irony*. And it would probly get cencored anyway.
