The demand for high pressure floor/shock pumps.

Hi guys,

I've been thinking about this a lot. I wonder how many people would be interested in buying high pressure pumps off me both shock and floor pumps. I've been making HP pumps for the last couple of years and have pretty much perfected my designs.

I'd like to do this for the people who are either too lazy, don't have enough time and who have no idea how to do it themselves despite the amount of tutorials on pumps on here.

The only thing I need now is customers! :D

Thanks!

it depends on what material you will be using, what pressures they should be able to reach, and what price. knowing your reputation, I am assuming they will be well made out of copper or aluminum, and will be able to reach at least 250psi. The biggest variable for me would be the price, but you should carry-out this plan; i love it when people can make money from spudding :P

Mike,

For safety's sake I'll be using copper and brass fittings. You should be able to reach at least 300psi with this.

My only concern is getting everything cheap enough to make it cheap for the buyer. high pressure gauges are NOT cheap...

I envy you Twizi :D

You could have gauges as an option, some folks might already have them on their launcher or tank or whatever they want to fill. Including postage it will have to be cheaper than a fridge compressor though.

Hey guys,

I had a thought about this as well. Selling the pumps disassembled at a much cheaper price. I'd have all the parts needed to make the pump and very detailed instructions. Everything would be polished and ready to do, I'd also include all the olives and thread tape needed. I'll maybe even pre-epoxy/solder the right fittings to the copper pipe so all that the buyer has to do is screw it together.

The only problem is location. Overseas shipping would cost a little too much.

Where abouts are you guys located?
