Would these work as a spacer type thing?

Unread postAuthor: Mihlrad » Thu Aug 17, 2006 10:04 am

Again with the new gun im building, I decided i really dont feel like making something out of plywood for a spacer between the double resevoir. Do you guys think that these pipe saddles would work?

I really want the ones that are bolt tightened to the pipe, not solvent, but they are 30 a piece lol.


hmmm i would also need a way of making them almost perfectly aligned if i did that.

It would be easyer to make it out of wood. Or carboard layered. But thoses saddles will work.

Before you glue the gun together, glue the saddles on and connect them. Then it can't be crooked.

The best way to align parts exact is to use the floor.

You could use 2 pieces of threaded pipe inbetween those saddles, screw the pipe in or out for adjustment. You can't beet the price. Real easy to build and use.

DING DING DING

WE HAVE A WINNER!!

I think it's a great idea all the way around!
