Unread postAuthor: Pilgor » Tue Jul 08, 2008 3:58 pm

I go to my camp alot and we do not have access to electricity all the time, so I was wondering if this product would be suitable for pneumatic cannon applicatons

I think you gave a faulty link, all I get is a "enter postal code" screen.

EDIT: you may want to add maybe another valve and bring a bike pump, someone may volunteer to help pump it so it would go faster - I can't imagine cordless ones compress that fast/well. (I may be wrong - I have no experience with cordless pumps)

If it's anything like this then it will be even shittier than one of those lighter socket compressors, save your money and get yourself a good track pump ;)

you can get a gas operated compressor for about the same price as an electric one, maybe just a little more. its worth it if you use it alot and also move around alot. check ebay, you can usually get a good deal on a compressor on ebay.

But only buy a new one from Ebay, you never know what condition the tank is in if you buy a used one.

I wrote a post about one here:http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/12v-compressors-t14822.html
I got linked to another post from before that (link in reply there).

Husky makes one that's $10 bucks at home depot. But from what I've read, I'd get the clause hambell (?correct name) metal foot pump for 8.80 something instead.
Or build a copper high pressure pump. Or bring a co2 bike tire inflater.
Or a regulated bulk tank.
