Noob...

Unread postAuthor: ABshooter » Sun Jul 22, 2007 4:40 pm

I'm a real noob to spudguns, I've already made one, a fairly small combustion cannon, it was about a foot and a half of 3 inch pipe (chamber) and a 3"-1" adapter, then about a foot and a half of 1" pipe (barrel, duh). It had a screw in endcap on the rear, with an "Aim and Flame" epoxed through a hole in the center of the cap. I'd take off the cap, spray in some of my Mom's hairspray, QUICKLY SCREW IT IN AND BARELY TAKE AIM THEN QUICKLY FIRE! Lmao, it was a pretty decent little gun, but I'd like to build some big ones now, both combustion and pneumatic.

I'm also in modding airguns, so I understand pressure and stuff, just don't know where to get Shrader valves, sprinkler valves, etc. I'm a noob, and what I need is a spudgun buddy. Anyone here I can add on MSN and annoy with my noobish questions? I'm 15 BTW, but I'm not dumb.

If you wanna add me, fine, I'm ABshooter@hotmail.com

you can get schrader valves at bike shops, mcmaster, and some hardware stores.

any home depote or lowes will have a sprinkler valve.

best od luck to you.

you know you are not an engineer if you have to remind yourself "left loosy righty tighty"

I can probably answer most of your questions about pneumatics and simple combustions. PM me if you need anything.

I added you on MSN, so if you get a message from a timbabeu2005@yahoo.com, that's me.
Feel free to ask me anything you wish. Honestly, I have nothing but time nowadays.

Awesome, three people added me, now just if one of them would be online!! Thanks guys, and homedepotpro, I wanna make both air and fire spudguns. More air though, to me combustion seems a little unsophisticated, but remember, I am a noob.

In reality pneumatics are simpler once you get to know them.
and a word of advice only use NSF-PW pvc on pneumatics.
abs is fine on combustions
