Watched this vvideo on Youtube

And wondered how it works, is it a homemade pressure relief valve on opposite side of the valve to the 'barrel'? Is kt similar to the other youtube video where the air supply is increased/restricted to adjust the rate of fire?

Any info welcome and if there are any particular details I need to know?

Thanks

Believe so. Adjusting air supply rate or relief valve set point individually should alter rate of fire.

Thanks, I will read up, currently making a version of Bill Gilmours pneumatic breach cannon, just need a barrel and connect air before testing, not good with electronics so using a square wave driver to control solenoid valve via a relay and 3 decent capacitors to ensure relay gets all the power it needs straight off. Thought this would make a good future project.
