Lots and lots of Questions and some of whats to come

Unread postAuthor: Maniac » Sun Apr 20, 2008 6:25 pm

Insted of steting a new topic for all of these questions i decided to have one big topic for them all. Some of these questions my be kind of irrelevant.

First is i have just taken apart this 6v lanter battery and wondering what to do with it.
Image was just wondering what i can do with them. or how to use them.

Next is a computer im taking a par for parts. But i cant get it open. I have taken off every visible screw but these lttle hook keep me from prying it open, and i cant seem to find a reasonable way to un hook them.
Image

Okay next is it still possible too add a bolt action breeck to this tee even though it is glued i know some of you may be come what annoyed with this question because you heled me with it before. Image
All i need to know is how to do it.

This question is a safety one.
Since the begining of this pneumatic i have been confused with the gauge. My gauge on my cannon tells me the pressure is lower than the gauge on my pump. I am wondering which one is right. Image
One of them is off usually around 20-30 psi. Nothing is visibly wrong with either of them too.

The next question is...

At my local lowes i have recent ly found some 4 pipe that seems to be pressure rated. Even thought it is under the DWV sectiom and says NSF-dwv and not NSF-pw. It still says 220 psi at (_____) forgot what usually goes there. IT also doesnt look like DWv from the side . No yellowish "foam" center laminated with thin sheet of pvc. Is it safe for pressure.

Enough questions now its time to so some of the power from my new cannon i wont reveal it now but will show some damage.

Image Pycrete slug broke the bottom section of the board in half.

C02 cartride actually wnet all the wany through and kept on traveling slid it back in for size comparison.Image

Golfball impact Image

Thank you if you answer one or more of these many questions. Sorry if some of there are very simple and stupid Questions.

when the cannon is loaded, tap the pressure gauge, sometimes the needle gets stuck.

always trust the one on your cannon. the bike pump ones are always a wee bit higher.

for taking apart the computer, i had that same problem with a pc i used to have...

there really isn't a way to open those without actually "bending" the lid itself so it falls off the hinge track.. so the solution is to do exactly that...make sense?

Have you tried a Sawzall on the case yet? An oxy/acetylene cutting torch? I'm sure that wouldn't have much trouble removing the lid. Other than that... shaped charges can do wonders in terms of relocating stubborn things. :D

" lttle hook keep me from prying it open" There should be a lift lever in the back that lifts the hooks allowing the side to come off. My Gateway is set up like that, 1 little screw then lift the hooks and it's wide open for what ever.

It takes me longer to turn my PC around and unplug everything then it takes me to get the cover off.

What kind of PC is it?
