FE tank trouble

Unread postAuthor: iPaintball » Wed Jun 27, 2007 8:06 pm

I have a small kidde fire extinguisher that I plan on using as a chamber. A 1" male adapter fits perfecly over the end of it. so would it be safe to put and o ring over the nack of the tank, slip the male adapter over it, and then bolt it in place?

I would reccomend welding it on, a bolt will probobly leak like a siv. Even with your o-ring, it might leak.

Bumer, If you try it than make sure to test it carfully. I think that if you use the proper sized grade 8 bolt than their is no way of it exploding or anything, it just might leak...

God gave us duct tape for a reason. No that's actually my job to use stuff like paper mache and duct tape.

Anywhoo, try it with an o-ring and such before you go and spend a pretty penny getting it welded. (It shouldn't be that much, but just enough to annoy you)
