NEW VALVE IDEA

Unread postAuthor: haulinick » Wed Jun 14, 2006 11:17 pm

ok. im sick of wanting a supah valve but i just dont have the money. i came up with this. its pretty simple. im not sure if it would work though. it uses a check valve in the middle and well the rest i think is pretty self explanatory.

it is the same as a barrel sealing piston valve, but i think it would fire very fast, good work, and a check valve would help greatly with the effeciency

Hav fun getting that to seal on both points. That looks really unstable. I think you should go with a regular barrel sealing piston because this looks iffy.

I give you props on trying something new though.

That that's a nice one for theory... but I can tell you now, like Gort said, you'd be a very lucky man to get that to seal...

There'e a turorial here to make a barrel sealing piston valve:

No noo, that's not me, that's the smart mexican man from BC Pneumatics :D

Man that guys a potato gun mastermind, I bet he makes a lot of money from selling his fans, combustions, BBMG's, and valves in his shop too...

Your valve theory would be good, but it's really too complex when you can get the same power from a simple barrel sealing piston valve...

BC is a teenager who doesn't make much off of any of his things. It's just a hobby to him as it is to most of us. He just doesa a lot to help the spudder community.
