Unread postAuthor: tylerthetatertosser » Sun Aug 05, 2007 12:16 am

well i have been thinking i want to make a air soft coaxial but i have one question... how do i get the brake line mounted, soldered, expoxyed in the front of the gun. is there a fitting that small you can epoxy it in or solder it in. how do i mount it?

i made an airsoft coaxial once.

i just put it in a 1/2'' busing, centered it, then put JB weld into it. it sealed just fine and works perfectly.

i did this with copper by the way.

you could also drill a hole in an end cap.

"physics, gravity, and law enforcement are the only things that prevent me from operating at my full potential" - not sure, but i like the quote

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

The brakeline that I buy comes with fittings already on it, they are 1/4" male threaded fittings.

Compression fittings are extremely helpful, the one holding the brakeline in on my steel coaxial holds 400 psi with no problem. It's also the cleanest and fastest way.

Don't most brakelines come with flared ends? If so you just use a flare fitting. Ghetto tap the other end of the fitting into the chamber.
