Your images aren't working. Would it be possible to get them up? This is one sweet launcher. I definitely want to try this, but pictures would help sooo much.

I think it is a general problem with photobucket (the site hosting the images). I tried logging onto my photobucket account and it wont let me on for some reason, so I think it is a problem with photobucket.... :P

Right. I just checked by quoting your post and the image urls and tags are there, but Photobucket says that neither your account nor photos exist. Strange.

all the pics show just fine for me
Book of Armaments (Chapter 2, verses 9-21)
...And Saint Attila raised the sprinkler valve up on high, saying, "O Lord, bless this Thy sprinkler valve that with it Thou mayest blow Thine enemies to tiny bits, in Thy mercy." And the Lord spake, saying, "First shalt thou remove thy solenoid and epoxy the pilot hole, then remove the guide rod, then thread your pilot valve directly to the body of thy sprinkler, lest thou increase thy pilot volume by a single iota, then lobbest thou thy nerfs towards thy foe, who being naughty in my sight, shall procedeth to the gates of reinsertion."

No pics here either. The video's look amazing. What's the ~ cost for all of this?

Right now I do not have a dedicated ASA or reg, but I have about $50 in materials in mine, give or take

Well, I took my valve appart, removed what looked like a plastic screen held on by a small screw. I still have the valve bouncing a little (opening and closing when you fire) but it doesnt honk anymore. Oh yeah, I gotta dial this baby way back, at 80 psi, i obliterated a nerfie.....

Hi. I had a quick question about your launcher. What are you using to regulate the air going into the pressure chamber? What ensures that you don't over pressurize the system? I'm thinking of using a mini regulator (CMI R-2000) instead of the ball valve. Just needed some input. Sent PM also. Great Launcher by the way. One of the BEST I've seen on the internet!

Fisrt of all amazing launcher. Great job man. I was just wondering how you can keep constant pressure in the system without it overpressurizing. Do you use the ball valve to do that? and where did you find a pressure relief valve? thanks ahead of time.

From looking at it, the input (Co2/HPA) is regulated down to a preset pressure. Once the chamber is filled to that preset pressure it will stop filling. In the event of an over pressure (not likely to happen because of the regulator) there is the pressure relief valve. Those are found at a place with air compressor fittings, hose, parts, etc. For firing the launcher, its just a sprinkler valve (probably modified).

Soon most (if not all) fields will require a metel pressure chamber. There was an accident last year at D-Day where a couple of guys were injured after a pvc pressure tank exploded.

The only reason the chamber would have exploded is:

Using an unregulated wrongly regulated air source to fill the chamber
No safety pop-off valve
Chamber made from non-pressure rated material (DWV PVC)
Not using pressure rated fittings
etc.

Actually no PVC is rated for air pressure and water pressure is much less volitile. The accident at D-Day was blamed on a reg. failure. After using launchers in games I realize they get knocked around pretty hard. I have expieramented with pvc and a failure is explosive with sharp shards of pvc flying around possibly my face, I will not take that chance a steel tank or high grade aluminum at relativly lower pressures 100-150 failures are much less common and usually has the tank blowing off at the connection, unlike high pressure 3000-4500 tanks they do not become missiles. I also wont rely on the pressure relief valve saving me from a PVC failure.

Can you tell me where to look for aluminum tanks? I have googled till my fingers are sore....
