It may be DWV, but DWV doesn't mean it's not pressure rated.

I am building a combustion, so I am going to have to go with a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a, a

Actually I am building a hybrid, so I am going to have to go with b, b, b, b, b, b, b, b, b, b, b

:lol: :roll:

But in all honesty: b, a, a, b, b, b, a, a, a, b, b

Don't you think it's kinda rude to put someone's cannon on here? The whole cannon was DWV, but it's still kinda rude.

You don't think the big 180 degree fitting in pic "hkghjhg.gif" will hold? That looks like something I can use for my next launcher.

Oi, you nicked my idea... :P

This quiz is assuming you are making a pneumatic dwv is fine for combustions.

I think the whole "DWV is fine for combustions" idea is doublethink (if you don't know what this is, go read "1984".)

A combustion can still take peaks of 70 to 80 psi, and shock loading is worse than a steady loading - and don't forget this is heated gas, which worsens the problem.
People say: "DWV isn't safe for pneumatics at all, even a low pressure one."

But yet the same people will say it's fine to take a shock loading at pressures over twice what they say it should be used at with a pneumatic.

For pete's sake, make up your minds. Either it's acceptable (not "fine") for low pressure pneumatics as well as low power combustions, or it's not suitable for anything.

Personally, I'm of the second opinion - we shouldn't promote it at all. We might occasionally use it, but we shouldn't say it's OK, because that will give newbs the wrong idea.

Extra couple of dollars...Pffft.

Pressure rated parts cost around 3 times more in the Uk than DWV parts.
