pneumatic solenoid modding

Unread postAuthor: unoriginalusername » Sat May 28, 2005 12:00 pm

okay, so it seems it best to modify a solenoid with a blowgun.

what type of hose should i use?where can i get it from? cost?
is the compreession chamber connected to solenoid or to the bottom of the blowgun?

after the mod. does the valve still require electricity to operate?

lets say i had a compression chamber the size of a regular pringles can, how long would it take to pressurize it to 100psi with a hand pump? retarded right?

1. any air hose rated over 100 psi, about 1/4"-3/8" hose
2. the compression chamber is connected to the valve using the opening that the arrow on the valve is pointing away from
3. no, thats one of the best things about modding, no more damn batteries
4. hmm, not very long, i only need about 5-10 pumps to get my 1"x12" chamber to 110 PSI
