Ya, we have 3739 members who have never posted, which is more than half of our members. More than 6000 have never posted more than 30 posts total. About 5500 haven't visited in the last 6 months. Not that I am pro-banning, but I feel like we could use some cleanup.

Do not look back, and grieve over the past, for it is gone;
Do not be troubled about the future, for it has not yet come;
Live life in the present, and make it so beautiful that it will be worth remembering.

!WARNING! SPOILER :wink:

...I should have known that you'd ask for pics when I mention it...

ok here it's... forgive me their low quality but I don't have much time take pics.. right now it's 95% completed and it works... I still have to tinker with o-rings (they are either too loose or they leak) and solder one joint

I've just realized it's damn hard not to have your feet in the pic when you take a photo of something lying on the floor... oh well all foot fetishists have to wait till I finish it

uhmmm..... :roll:

that big rectangular thing is a 5/2 valve (5 way / 2 position).... in one position it sends air to the air cylinder while venting the QEV... in the other it vents the air cylinder (I added a spring) while filling the QEV

at the bottom there is the quick connect male thing as well as two ports for venting (not visible)

that brass thing is the bolt - it's normally in forward positon (in the pic) when I activate the valve QEV fires and air is sent to the air cylinder, which retracts the bolt... a marble falls down and as I depress the button it's sent forward into the barrel and the bolt closes off ammo port (copper T)

(LOL I know it's off-topic and all... but do I use articles properly?? )

ITWOST

(actually something I did saturday, but never posted)

Was bored now that The Gauntlet is done (and it's too damn cold to test fire it outside) so when looking through all of my junk I found an old mini spud gun I had long since abandoned. Added a chamber fan, switch, and used the spare rechargable battery I have from the Gauntlet to make a cute little mini "semi-advanced". I don't think I'll take the project too far, but it's suprisingly powerful and it cost me $0.00 to make... Well let me put it this way; I didn't have to pay any more money to make it, just used spare parts etc. :lol:

ITWOST

I rebuilt my cap bank with copper bus bars and all in parallel. I am going to do another ETG tomorrow, and it should be almost 1.5 times as powerful (1.3kJ at 330v) as the one i posted.

Built a new ETG today, it was impressive. I was collecting some steel powder with a magnet while filing down a steel bolt as a projectile for my pneu. cannon, so i used those. I made a "shell" out of Al foil with steel powder in the middle. Results where awesome. With no projectile, the exhaust shot through 1/2 a magazine (thin, newsweek) and burned the rest away.
