piston valves for sale

Unread postAuthor: A-98 » Mon Apr 02, 2007 10:43 pm

Ok, I have an idea for the making of barrel sealing piston valves. I was wondering what porting people would be interested in, and would be the most productive for me to sell.

I haven’t decided on any prices yet, due to the fact that A: I'm not sure what porting I'm going to make and B: I'm not sure how labor intensive it will be.

You can open the valve and it will be fully serviceable, and it will have o-rings. Also the fittings will be totally flush (not lathed down, but it wont have extensions coming off the back for the piston. I will try and offer them at a fairly reasonable price, and I will make them look nice, and I can customize them to your liking (within reason, given that I don’t have a machine shop). For example, I could build different port sized to your liking.


This mainly depends on whether or not I get my drill press.

I have put up a poll, but if you have any suggestions, feel free to post them.

In theory I could buy what I need to make portings all the way from 1/2" to 4" but that would be damn pricey and I would have to raise the prices accordingly to get my money back (depending on demand, I would only raise a bit)

The main advantage of my valves is that they are going to be well made, for a low price. They may not be as nice as the mauler series (ill test the prototype for performance) but they will be cheaper

The availability/sized of these valves would depend mainly upon the availability of the necessary parts (o-rings, T's, fittings, etc.)

There are rules, and then there are hundred dollar bills.

I for one would like to own a 3" porting piston valve.
Would the performance of a 3" valve beat the performance of dual 2" piston valves?

The cross-sectional area of 3" pipe is over twice that of 2" so I'd say it is well within the realm of possibility it would beat 2 2" ported valves.
