Mihlrad, what is up your ass about this? If you don't want to buy his valves for $60 then don't! But you need to back the hell down, we get it you don't like the idea! That's what he wanted to know.

YOU'RE DONE!

Damn... If your going to argue and flip crap I would expect to be over something a little more "contreversial" or a "hot" topic. From now on in ANY part of this forum little gay ass cat fight break out I will simply delete them. By any means I wont deleted a reasonalbe arguement, but all this touchy feeling stuff is annoying.

Correcting errors... please stand by....

Theres a supah valve, not one messy part on it, completely clean, <strike>master machinist</strike> <b>he has no formal training</b> made. It has <strike>perfectly aligned</strike> <b>are you blind?</b> screws drilled into perfectly round pvc stock <b>(oh, that's an accomplishment an a lathe...)</b>, a perfectly clean tee, threaded inlets and outlets for easy changing. <strike>Some insanely superior design on the inside that anyone has figured out yet or atleast has posted. </strike>

Not only is it 2", there is only one 90 degree turn, <strike>instead of a 180 degree turn</strike> <b>acctualy, it was 360*</b> (as in your old sprinkler-valve-homemade-valve-thing.

There is no reason not to have a 1/2" valve you'll get <strike>twice</strike> <b>four times</b> the flow of a 1/4" valve.

1. I'm asking a question, not saying that I will sell them.
2. People buy a 3" piston valve for $115, why not 2" for 50 or 60? I was just setting a random price here, not saying that I'd charge that much if I do sell them.
3. I don't have any pics of my finished one because it is not finished because I have been gone for a week.
4. I use solid 2" Delrin that can hold over 500 psi.
5. A 1/4" ball valve here is $5.99, a 1/2" one is $2.99.

OK, I just thought of a way to make it clean, cheap, easy, and reliable. I have all the parts but I am leaving again tomorrow for 8 days. The price will be $50 for anyone who would want to buy. PCGUY will also get $5 for every valve bought.

Make sure to give SEVERAL pictures as well, so that we can really get an idea of how this valve looks. I bet you already know this, but try to make the "showcase" valve of which pictures will be posted on this website look as clean as possible.

Also, I doubt people will buy valves from you with a port smaller than the max. No offense or anything, but A 2" tee valve with just 1/2" porting is not that great a deal.

$60 may seem like a lot of money (because it is :? ), but if you make a nice, clean, chamber sealing valve with 1.5" ports all around, you should be able to yield some business. However, I recommed that you drop the price by $15-$20 to actually get real business

EDIT: i meant drop the price by $15-$20... so it would be sold at around $40

if it cost you more than 20 to make, you should find another place to buy parts.

No, I just use good quality stuff, for example, the piston can hold 300+ psi and it's over a dollar per inch.
