Glue Bottle, can it hold pressure?

Unread postAuthor: MrCrowley » Fri Jul 14, 2006 7:31 pm

im building a mini pneumatic with a 1/4" barrel 1' long that goes into a adapter that screws into a 1/2"ball valve and ive screwed a PVA glue bottle in the other end as a chamber with a schrader valve on the end.the glue bottle is 500ml(16oz) and i was wondering
A:could it hold enough pressure
B:would the gun fire batteries well or is it crap?
C:how would i know when the bottle is full of air ive got no pressure gauge on my bike pump

thanks, MrCrowley

Most PVA glue bottles that I've seen don't look like they could take 30 psi.

if its a softer plastic it will just kind of blow a tear in it. it wont like shatter and stick into you if its soft. if its hard that might be a different story

nah its soft like rubbery type thing,i think the schrader valve is the weakest part of the whole design so i thing that may blow first.im waiting for some parts to dry ill posts pics soon

edit:spelling mistakes can't let pimpmann down :D
how much could a coke bottle stand? are they all the same like would a 600ml be able to stand as much as a 1.5litre?

A Coke bottle? Plastic or real glass? I'm sure the real glass is strong enough, yes?

Boomer said it.............(Do you mind if I fart?)
