ITWOST, almost finished the 'carrying unit' for my V.A.L launcher.

it was really just a project I built at school in a small amount of time so I would pass the course. My teacher wasn't so sure my cannon alone would make me pass.

ITWOST I finished my field legal paintball cannon. It was supposed to look like a .50 cal, but that proved to be pretty difficult so it doesn't look like one at all. :lol: The only thing "new" (it's new as far as I know) is that it operates at 75 PSI so I attached a pressure switch (70 PSI on 100PSI off) to the hose that connects the gun to the air tank, so that an LED on the gun lights up to let me know when the pressure is getting low.

LOL its pretty simple... attack vacume to chamber (lots of duck tape) then tape up any connections on the vacume barrel/hose bit as air will leak in through there... then as i made a coax, it just put a 15mm copper endcap with a rubber disc in the base on the muzzle... then pasted the JFC around the leaky area and turned the vacume on!

He bids...he scores! :D

Got a high pressure regulator on the way, less than $60 cdn.

6000psi max inlet , 2500psi max outlet.

The thing is, its the same regulator as the 6000 in 6000 out. The only difference between the sub models (according to the part numbers) is the spring (belleville washers actually).

I'll have to order them in the morning. :lol:

6000psi N2 contract coming my way soon.

ITWOST I can't get myself inspired to make anything, though I did figure out a way to store liquid propane in just about any pipe, so comb cannons (and hybrids of course) can be much more portable. Just freeze the pipe beforehand, take a 20lb tank and turn it upside down, attach the pipe to the 20lb tank with a standard propane hose (no regulator or this won't work) and open the tank valve. The liquid propane will all flow into the cold pipe, because the pressure is lower due to the temperature difference.

I am thinking along the lines of a hybrid, as I have never made one before, but I don't know what I want to make. Mayhaps I will make a noise maker.

ITWOST, I blocked an idiot from posting comments below my HEAL video, because his near encyclopædic knowledge of how not to do things (and promotion of his own cannons) was starting to annoy me.

Getting told I should use a plastic bottle as a chamber instead because "the air comes out of it quicker", his suggestions that he was going to make a 500 psi pneumatic in the same way, were combustion cannons legal in the UK, "Yes, he got the grip off a slingshot", "Mine's much more powerful", and all his other advice...

*facepalmheaddeskcombo*

I normally have a lot of patience, but there are limits.
I doubt there are a lot of people out there that know much more about spudding than I do (and I imagine those that do are on this forum), so his inaccurate patronisation was getting to me.

(Blimey, that means I must be world ranked in spudding terms... :D)

Sorry, I just felt I had to rant somewhere. I'm happy to leave the Youtube comments open, because sometimes there are genuine questions or constructive criticism, but it's not an open forum for the purveyance of n00bishness.

Rag,

Been there. I had some American guy from the South comment on one of my SGA videos claiming that his propane metered combustion was far more 'advanced', harder to build and not to mention a crap load more powerful.

The guy had no clue what a piston valve was and was convinced that my main valve was a ball valve, which was the pilot. No pictures or videos could make him change his mind. This guy was like 50 something as well with 20 years 'experience' in mechanics according to jim...I mean him. :roll:

I'm pretty sure the guy I was dealing with was unlikely to reach his next birthday, if he was taking his own advice. :roll:

Oh well, you can't expect youtube posters to be intelligent. I suspect this forums has set my opinions of the average internet user's intelligence about an order of magnitude too high.

ITWOEET (In the world of everything else today), I appear to have killed off my watch. Damn, that means I'll need a new one.
