19 June 2008 - 11:45 PMTippmann could probably put some thought into it and come up with a safety mechanism. Actually, it was already done a long time ago. Prior to Tippmann, prior to Atomic Ordnance (who Tippmann bought) there were the Meteor shower grenades. I don't know the whole story or if whoever made them became atomic ordnance...but the design is the same with one exception. Instead of wrapping the grenades in crinkly annoying plastic, they used another rubber band over the whole thing to hold the trigger in place. Warpig still has some good pics.
There was an obvious downfall to the design. If that band came off you have a potential mess on your hands like an unwrapped big boy. An idea would be to just carry a couple extra thick rubber bands in your pocket so in the event that you have an unwrapped big boy, you could put them over it like on the Meteor shower grenades and have a little bit of additional safety. Maybe use 2 like in an X pattern.
14 March 2008 - 01:27 AMI already have the tire valve in the end cap of the air chamber, and on top of that, the PVC is oly about a 1/4 inch thick which is not enough material for the guage to be threaded into safley. that is the reason i put a threaded cap in the first one, the square pice that is used to tighten it, i filled it with epoxy to add material for the threades on the guage to grab on to.
sorry admins I cant post pics of the dammage. i dont have a fast enough computer to do so however i can guarentee that the cannon broke due to my absent mindedness when dissassembling the cannon NOT TO OVER PRESSURIZATION. I am a certified airsmith so saftey is very important to me, I could not even consider re using any parts if the cannon broke due to overpressurization.
What I usually do for anything that threads into the PVC is to drill and tap it where it's double layered. So if you used an end cap, drill and tap where the cap and PVC overlap (on the side not the end). Then you have 2 layers of PVC at about 1/2"... also, because the PVC is curved there, I usually drill it, then use a coutersink / deburring bit to round out the top of the hole (like these -> http://www.idealtruevalue.com/servlet/the-...2-Shank./Detail ) ... THEN tap it...
04 March 2008 - 11:34 AMReally, wouldn't a paintball "bomb" as you're describing be about the same as a paintball mine? Do some research on paintball mines and you should get a good idea of how to make something.
I did the rocket igniter thing a long time ago. It worked pretty well but there is the valid concern that it does indeed use a very small ignition which would probably be frowned upon. Also could be a potential fire hazard in dry areas... It does work *ok* though and is cheap and easy to do. I still have a page up about it.
04 March 2008 - 11:26 AMi do actully warm up the paint with the scarch and it does stay thick
and can u buy the salad dressing with out the spices and stuff or can u just use regular ranch and add a couple of caps of listerine?
and how do u store t?
and if thats the regular size of the granade thank god i thought i needed to add more paint lol
While an interesting (and possibly delicious) idea, please realize that the ranch dressing thing was a joke..
22 February 2008 - 08:24 PMWhat makes it funny is that just above this thread there is a "Making your own paint" thread.
Yeah but we keep replying and moving them around so no one can find it. Don't forget that there's always that sticky little thread at the top called "How to make your own paintball grenades" that has half a dozen paint recipes in it as well.
