My brother was a boiler tech in the Navy, you should here some of the highpressure steam leak stories... Former Navy here.... Yes, high pressure steam is nothing to be trifled with. We would keep cans of broom handles around. The handles were for finding steam leaks. Keep in mind.... At those tempe...

Operatorchan

Hey I was on the imageboard Operatorchan today and someone on the board made a reference to Larda's hybrid.
I notice that Theopia is a linked on Operatorchan and this reference leads me to think that the site does have connections to spudfiles.
Anyone else here who posts on Operatorchan?

The problem in pvc is that it fails "explosively", sending sharp pvc pieces evrywhere. As many times as I've heard this, I've never seen it happen or heard of it happening to sched 40 or better PVC. Yes, clean-outs fly off, chamber/barrel transitions have cracked, barrels have cracked off into a ha...

Even if you were to find pressure rated fittings and pipe that size, you would be looking at hundreds of dollars. For example, a 3" PVC tee, rated at 150psi (McMaster part number 46885K158) costs $56 edit: and it comes with a warning: WARNING Never use plastic pipe fittings with compressed air or g...

A better example than my work The above example could be easily modified to full auto by using a pop-off valve for a pilot valve. The cannon jack posted (images are dead) simply uses a Q.E.V. with a pop-off pilot, and an air source. I used a 90 PSI pop-off to reduce air consumption, but it really d...

I ordered a mauler from his site and in my experience, the quality and service sgort offers is astounding. When there was a delay in my order sgort kept constant contact with me and gave me excellent customer service, unlike our previous sponsor.
