Safety Section

Unread postAuthor: veginator » Tue Oct 16, 2007 7:03 pm

After my recent accident with a combustion cannon I think we should add a safety section so that we wouldn't have any new people to the hobby getting hurt or killed and giving our hobby a bad name. This section could show the dangers of using DWV in pneumatics or air injection.

EDIT: Post your ideas to add to the list or be VEGINATED!

Yea i dont think its a bad idea, maybe somekind of disclaimer, and a mandatory overview of a saftey section before entering and saying, Yes i have read the terms and conditions and yada yada yada.

That might work but who actually reads that stuff any way. I kinda ment more along the lines of a sticky that tells you what will happen to you if you did something that you shouldn't have like using DWV. I have seen this on alot of other sights such as spudtech.

Maybe persons can begin to post safety issues here and this thread can get stickied.

I'll start:

Look both ways before you cross the street. :D



Seriously, though, this is a good idea. One that EVERYONE wanting to start this hobby should see. Obviously, it should be split into 4 sections, maybe even a sticky page in each category. Hit up the mods / admin to see what they think about it and see if it can't be done. Or, you could just go to each of the forums and post a safety thread in hopes that it gets added to and stickied.

Thats a good idea but first Ithink we should come up with some ideas on what to put.

No, I'll start

Do not put anything in front of the barrel you do not wish to destroy. :violent3:

How about,

"In any CO2 or High Pressure Gas setup, be sure to use safety features such as regulators, pop-off valves, and pressure gauges"

Veginator, your rule is kind of a given... :wink:

Kinda like...

Guy 1: "Hey, let's put my iPod in my pneumatic shooter"
Guy 2: "What a great idea"
*Cannon fires*
Guy 1: "What the hell, my iPod got broken. There should be like a warning or something"

-Always use pressure rated pipe and pipe fittings.
-Always use proper joining techniques, such as proper solvent.




You know what. This list would be pretty long.

Lets split it into two categories pneumatic and combustion. Right now it looks like we are mainly focusing on pneumatic.Heres one...

Do not attempt to plug a pressure leak with your finger unless you want to die.
