Big Ass Valve.

Unread postAuthor: rna_duelers » Tue May 08, 2007 12:01 am

Pictures say it all.The smaller one is a 1" and the larger a 2"....The large valve has amazing flow but a price to match.This valve is going to be used on a custom pneumatic cannon im building to specific a specific size and it will be posted soon when its complete.

I have seen 3'' ones at pool stores, but i dont remember how much it was. i told my cousin about it and he said it was a couple hunded USD, but i could be wrong. that cannon will be pretty cool when its done.

So you basically spent $60 on a diaphragm valve? Smart... Like luke said, make your own valve!

Well i was thinking that,but they add uneeded amount of extra gear when only a 1/4 ball valve is needed or similar and there is less to go wrong.

The cannon is nearly done all it needs is to be cleaned and shipped off.Ohh and chronographed
