Chamber help

Unread postAuthor: pvcmaster » Tue Jun 19, 2007 7:03 pm

I found this strange container inside a lunchbox, and i wonder if i could use it as a compression chamber. Im pretty sure it is aluminum, about 1/16" thick. A 3/4" nipple screws perfectly into it, and i even used the existing gasket. Any ideas on how much psi it would hold?

I's probably someone's thermos. :lol:
You can probably use it in a combustion but I wouldn't try a pneumatic with it, seeing as you have no idea how much pressure it will hold.

if you do pump it up, dont hold it in your hand for obvious reasons.

See, that is why it would best if you would use actual ENGLISH in your posts. :D

The original sentence has two parses. My first parse (and leukemc's) was that "if you have a second" meant "if you have time", not "if you have more than one".
