Vortex MMG?

Unread postAuthor: flamerz14 » Wed Jul 11, 2007 5:19 am

If I make a vortex block from hardwood with all dimensions for a 15mm marble, would it work the same way as a BBMG?and how big should the hole in the center be?

Because of the high flow rate you will need very large amounts of compressed gas. The pressure of the gas needed and the flow rate will most likely make your hardwood vortex block explode. Otherwise it will likely be very under powered.

So what is needed? High volumes of high pressure gas. In theory.

Marbles may crack and smash when colliding with each other and/or steel. Good luck with it anyway.

Your going to have to get those FE's welded unless you have special ones, they have funny threads.

I was thinking more of a regulated scuba tank. That fire extinguisher will only give a few seconds of firing time.

Or a huffer ;)

This isn' the most practical way to make a "MMG", though it works. Search for DR's.
