if your talking about the "back bast vents" pieces that were used on my AT-4 they are called flanges. i think there used to hook toilets into the drainage system they are like $6 and there found with all the other plumbing stuff at homedepot. the main reason i used them instead of any other piece was so i could claim it was a "pneumatic clog eliminator" if the cops were to show up.. which has happened on a few a occasions... they stole my dam propane tanks!

Counterstriker, I cant see your picture for some reason. Can you please put it up here, without a link, so I can see it? Thanks in advance

i was just shooting chalk out of it the other day, man i wish i had a video camera for that, it was so cool

I can imagine, did it turn to dust on impact or shatter?

EDIT: now your picture works for me.

Knowing myself it will be about 1 month till I am done. I gotta save some cash. I am hoping to only spend about like 40$-60$. And yeti I should get more pictures up soon but I am not on the computer that the picture is saved on.

On the modded sprinkler valves is there a limit on how long the tubling can be?

well the longer the tubbing the bigger the pilot volume is meaning the slower the valve will open... but i have seen one with about 3 ft of tubing that still worked (using a normal blow gun)

Yeah, I would have the tubing as short as possible, because as singularity said, it decreases performance.

By "Bazooka" Do you mean modern style rocket launcher or WW2/Korea style actual "Bazooka" :?:

If you mean a WW2 style one i'd just use a combustion inside a larger PVC Pipe and use wood boards to act like the shields etc on the old bazooka.

Sorry if i sound completely off the current discussion :oops:
