Alright, I shall refrain. As I said, it was casually discussed in the past and I haven't been here in a while.

Not only could this create a china-like banhammer in the US, it could also give large corprations the ability to smash smaller ones and/or deal millions of dollars of damage to others by whistleblowing. Even if you look at the bill google is rocommending, there is still that possibility. It is utter...

I refuse to post my spped results, Optus wireless out in buttfeck isn't fast whatsoever. I do crack 2MB/s every now and then.
I think you missed the point. The bottle is supposed to pop.

In order to make it adjustable, I suggest using a locking collar on the piston shaft. If you've ever messed with VEX robotics kits, you'll know what I'm talking about. (I'm not a huge fan, just figured I'd try to find common ground.) Anyways, that way you could adjust how tightly the spring was comp...

Best Bottle?

Hey guys, I haven't been around in a while and I figured I'd stop by! Love this place and I feel like I've been missing out. Anyways, I was just wondering if you people had an opinion on what would be the best bottle for a "pressure device." Yes, I know to use duct tape to increase the bursting pres...

Glad to hear they are ok MrCrowley and Jamie E. I checked in just to see if everyone was alright. The first thing I thought of when I saw the footage was Spudfiles. I should really stick around here more often, I've been missing a lot. (Don't recognize a lot of member names). I literally was kept aw...

Oh, so shouldn't be good then? There is about a 1/16th gap all the way around the diaphragm as it is.

EDIT: NVM, I see what you are saying. I just looked at the other side... Duh..

Where exactly would I be poking this hole? The diaphragm has a large gap around it. Here is a couple pics. (Crappy cell pics, but it was in my pocket.)

QEV Compatibility Question

Hey all, so I'm considering making a mini to shoot 6mm ball bearings. I have an ASCO 1/8" 3 way QEV valve like this one. http://www.indautomation.com/pdf/asco/qexhausts.pdf I had a design all planned out, but then I realized that it may not seal if I fill it from the chamber side like I want to. Do ...

Sweet, thanks for the ideas guys... I do have another question now... If I were to go with battery power, would it be more efficient to use a voltage regulator or resistors? Also, in this other situation I have where I'm trying to create a custom battery... I know that the output voltage is probably...

Meh, as long as it works I don't really care. These ignitors can be fired up with less than 9 volts.

Yes, I meant a "Power On" light. It's really that easy? :lol: I'm planning to use automotive brake lights. Or any 12v lamp that I find which happens to be cheaper. I want to use a 12V DC transformer if I can find one around here. I know I have a 15v but that is a little high I think... What do you t...
