Pneumatic valve help

Unread postAuthor: guitarfreak » Tue Jan 03, 2006 11:21 pm

hi there,im currently using a ball valve in my metal pneumatic. it is just a standard over-under design. i want to upgrade the valve to either a piston valve or a diaghpram valve. does anyone have any ideas on how to make such a valve out of metal? or is it possible (and safe) to screw together pvc and metal?

screwing together pvc and metal works well and is safe i sugest using teflon tape for a tight fight so i think you shold use a sprinkler valve. :P
