<td>So as you may have noticed y have been inquiring about Some hybrid stuff. Its now done as of today(10-16-06) but hopefully it will be soon. I am trying to replicate DR's original Gen 2 Hybrid but with higher pressure capiblities. The chamber as of now is a 1" x 6" Galvinized pipe nipple. It uses a 1" Black union. Almost all of the parts are from the electronics flea merket by my house. The are used and may contain cancer-causing chemicals but who cares. If i had bought ALL the parts from McMaster-Carr I would have a 1500 dollar hole in my wallet. All the stainless fittings(silver) and brass(gold) are rated to at least 3000 PSI. </td>

<p>This is the control side of the instrimentation.
The parts are labeled as folows: </p>
<p>A. 2.5" 0-100 Psi guage for measuring the pressure in the water/mixing tank. </p>
<p> B. Hose Barb for connecting chamber plumbing to the water/mixing tank. </p>
<p>C. Shattay 1-60 PSI guage for regulating how much is being put in the chamber. </p>
<p>D. High Pressure Quick Disconnect for repairs. </p>
<p>E. 10000 PSI shut off needle valve. Shuts off the chmaber system from the other plumbing. </p>
<p>F. Watts 0-300 PSI regulator. Good for nothing but this. </p></td>

Simply existing may cause cancer....I'm missing your altruism for the pursuit of the hobby.

You seem all dressed up but where is the party?

Looks pretty good... a clear overview picture of the whole project would help. Whats weird is I just compiled a list on mcmaster carr to make a 1" hybrid that would have a miniumum pressure rating of 3000 PSI... only cost me $50 for everything though (this is without metering equipment, barrel, etc)

I am not exactly sure what a needle valve is... can you explain?

Also: what kinda barrel are you going to use

Who knows what chemicals they were used for?
What are you talking about?

Think of it like a super precise gate valve. <img src="http://www.butech-valve.com/photos/lineart/cutaway.gif">
I will probably use a 1" steel barrel.

Spudstuff- use the EDIT FEATURE. Only warning. Don't reply back to this, just don't do it again.
