I won't draw one for a vortex because that takes too long. And in the future, do some research. The spud wiki has everything you'd ever need to know.

irwinner, good job

If your going to make a vortex definately look into this site for how to build the block and stuff and you could always find a better design like the aug look.

make sure that you have an air compressor with a good motor or a large tank

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

Paint is awsome. Not so good for jpegs or photos, but so what?

Now, more related to the topic at hand, does anyone acctualy have proof that a vortex block doesn't just act like a cloud?

I will if someone donates me some clear 2" PVC. :D My .177 Uzi is almost done. Just got to trim the vortex block, drill a hole for the barrel, and clamp the blowgun to the handle.

At what psi would it be good to run a vortex and a cloud?

I think you pretty much have to use it at 75 PSI+, because the bb's will be way too weak at lower pressures. You can even use it at like 140 PSI, because the pipe doesn't actually sustain that much pressure. But if a bb gets stuck... then your in trouble.

Make one out of all metal, including the vortex, get a 1/4" steel ball valve, and run it off like a 3000 psi paintball air tank regulated to 300 psi. :twisted:
