Would anyone buy this?

Unread postAuthor: WOW!! » Sun Jun 04, 2006 9:26 am

Iam going to be selling a piston valve, it is 4" in and 2" out, it can come with any adapters to fit your tank and barrel. It can be painted any color. It has a modded sprinkler valve on it and a quick disconnect with a ball valve for easy filling. It is in a T cofigureation. So would any one buy this meabey? Casue iam getting the stuff today and I wanted to know if I should get some extra stuff. The price is $70 and that includes shipping any were in the US. Once i get it built I will get a picture of it up.

Josh

EDIT: I think that it is better that the supah but I might be optimistic.

Well get us some pictures and show it in use on a launcher or two and maybe we will consider it. Then post this in the correct section.

Im very excited to see how well this valve turns out. I think your claim of being better then the supah may be a little far fetched, but most likely the price difference will make up for the loss in power.

Slap me for jumping to conclusions, but if you plan on selling something mis-spelling in the title can give a little insight to the quality of the valve. Not to mention the other countless errors in your post. Maybe you could answer my questions below?

Chamber or Barrel sealing?
PVC or metal piston?
Are there even any O-rings?

O and i have a router, a angle grinder, a rotray hammer(the one used for drilling in to masonary)and 1 nail/staple gun. It is a barrel sealing valve, it is all PVC and there is no O rings, you dont need them that is the buety(spelling) of the my desgin. Sorry about the grammar and spelling I was in a rush to get it typed becasue my mom needed the computer. Some of the tools that are on my list is a bench top grinder, a welder, a table saw, a sliding compound miter saw, a new drill, meabey a planer, metal saw, framing nailer, a bigger air compressor, some air tools, the list goes on and on lol. You can never have enought tools.

And Demon what is the lathe you are getting? What is the price on it?
