Right parts at Ace Hardware?

Unread postAuthor: Extrusion » Mon Oct 02, 2006 6:03 pm

Well i recently built a lame combustion from pvc wich was laying around (i live around alot of old houses) i got it from under old houses and well...bad idea wich i will never attempt again i had been using white rain hairspray and decided to step up to starting fluid lol cannon go boom but i was lucky enough to not get hurt just badly shaken and i was wondering if they have the right stuff at Ace hardware (no home depot around here.) i looked on there site but couldnt find anything could anyone help me.


all i found on there site where some fitting wich werent even the size i was looking for.

Thx in advance for anyone that helps.

i was thinking a 28" long 1 1/2" barrel with a 18" long combustion chamber.

Yea Ace will have the fittings for ya, bit expensive, but theyll work. Actually kinda junky fittings if you ask me.

Just thing I noticed... Has anyone ever notice that ACE's fittings 'feel' different? Not that PVC is very squishy, but it seems as if there fittings are harder. In a bad way... They fill lighter, but strangly fell harder. Kinda like ceramic, hard, but once you drop on the floor is shatters. Just something I noticed...
