1.5" Valve

Unread postAuthor: Atlantis » Sun Jun 18, 2006 6:22 pm

Would a 1.5" valve be big enough for golf balls? I might end up making a 2". Basically I'm looking for something that I can shoot Golf Balls and paintballs. I don't want to have an over sized 3" valve on it.

It should work, you only have a quarter reduction which is enough to dump the air needed to fill the barrel quickly.

1.5" is overkill for lightweight stuff like paintballs and golfballs... I'm using a 1" sprinkler on my big pneumatic (4' of 3" chamber) and it kills.....

1.5" is fine, but I'm just saying you don't need it that big, it might help though...

Wow, I never imagined it would be too big. This is good because I got four 1.5" Tees for free. One for the valve, one for the stock, one for the magazine or something.

Does anybody if a 3/4" Elbow fits in a 1.5" Tee? If they do I'm going to build the "Big Valve" in a smaller version...ironic...
