Where do you buy your Cannon Supplies?

Unread postAuthor: SkunkWerX » Thu Feb 09, 2006 7:30 pm

Where does everyone shop for parts?

I'll list some of the items and places that come to my mind,
please add to it, and we can help each other find the best and/or cheapest parts.

For pneumatic cannons:

Pop Safety Valves: http://www.mcmaster.com
48435K71 (72) and 50265K23
These are too cheap not to go ahead and install one for safety sake.

Gauges http://www.mcmaster.com
40565K31, 2, 3, ,4 and so on.
Always get a gauge that is about double your normal working pressure, or, put another way, gauges read best in the center of their scale.
If you are using 100psi, then use a 200psi gauge. If you are using 50psi, then get a 100psi gauge. These little gauges from Mcmaster are nice little gauges and you can't beat the price.

Sprinkler Valves & replacement diaphragm seals
http://www.starnursery.com/

Blowguns
http://www.northerntool.com
http://www.harborfreight.com/
http://www.harborfreight.com/cpi/ctaf/d ... umber=3962
You can even find these at locally at Home Depot, Lowe's, etc, pretty common, go to where the air compressor accesories are located.

PVC fittings & Brass Fittings
http://www.plumbingsupply.com/pvc.html

SkunkWerX style Breech Loading Gate Valve
http://www.1valves.com/pneumaticvalve.html

Brass Ball Valves
Believe it or not, Home Depot has a full selection and when you consider shipping, you won't find them much cheaper.
HD also has a full selection of Brass Fittings, but, these are priced a little higher, if you are only buying one or two, fine, but when getting a bunch, try on-line. Ace Hardware has a good selection of brass fittings, and so does mcmaster.

That's what comes to mind, build on it from here.

is it legal to sell something thats "on sale" and it was never ever sold at "regular price"?
cuz the 1valves site is saying a 3/4" ballvalve costs 45 bucks at "regular price" but costs 12 bucks on "sale", and 12 bucks is what you expect to find them at different places
