co2 the new generation of air cannons

Unread postAuthor: joemama » Sun Oct 23, 2005 6:05 pm

ok so im thinking about making a co2 set up for a 12-20 OZ co2 cans so do u just buy the co2 adapter to paint ball hose then at the other end of the hose put a female quick-disconnect then a male disconect to a ball valve to female quick-disconnect. and do u epoxy all the stuff how do u glue the stuff :( adn when u are ataching the female quick-disconnect to the cannon do u just drill then glue it to the cannon :?


im sorry this is a new field of air cononing for me i have a lot of experince with cannons but co2 i havent tryed as much :( :(

if your talking about epoxying the fittings, they should be threaded you don't need epoxy just teflon tape. and to get the female quick dissconect to the chamber find a thick spot in the pvc then drill and tap the hole then u can just screw it in. i don't think u need glue. and you probably would want a regulator for the co2 or something to regulate it because 800 psi in pvc will blow up

tapping creates threads so that u can screw it in to the pvc or i guess you could just use the fitting to tap like on the "modding a sprinkler valve" topic

i would suggest against tapping a hole without an actual tap, using the fitting opens the threads more than they should be opened, and can cause leaks. if you tap the hole with a tap correctly (stop when the tip of the tap begins to come out the other end) it gives a nice tight tapered thread.

yeah i figured that out after my first time tapping in pvc. so using the fitting to tap the hole isn't good?
