18 May 2010 - 10:50 PMCheck the O-Ring on the rear bolt, it might need replacing. I had the same problem and that fixed it.
19 April 2008 - 08:21 PMalso, the Majic ereasers work good too, but they can also take the finish and the paint off as well.
just throwin that out there.
03 April 2008 - 06:01 AMinstead of using a paintball regulator, I went with a compressor regulator. its a Husky with a guage build in and cost me $20 and can be found next to the air compressors at Home Depot.
Was that a high pressure regulator? If you're going to use HPA as your air source, you'll NEED a high pressure regulator(rated up to 5000 PSI depending on the tank you use).
I want to second and third the question on the operating pressure of this launcher. How do you regulate the input pressure?
Well, actually because its for an air compressor, the regulator not for HPA.... I kinda just saw the reg and guage in one small package and I was like"Jackpot!" thanks for reminding me of that!
untill I manage to get a cheep Comp. air bottle for this launcher, it is going to stay on a compressor in my basement...... unless I can find a small battery operated air compressor that can put out 95psi.
02 April 2008 - 12:42 PMSo the other day, me and some of my friends got together, we got a little bored and I showed them this launcher. Right away we got a parts list and went out to get the parts so far we are at around $60.00 and thats with out the trigger w/ microswitch. in stead of gettin that I was gonna use a horn botton or toggle switch, leaning more twards the horn botton.
I did have some trouble finding all the right parts. Home Depot dident have the endcaps I needed or the sprinkler valve. keep in mind that I live in michigan and because of that, the sprinkler valve is a seasional product that will be back on the shelf real soon.

Home Depot dident have the endcaps that i needed as stated above, so I had to run to ACE Hardware, they dident have the exact kind that I was looking for either, but with a few reducers I was able to bring it down from the 2in PVC pipe to the 3/4 valve. this is also where I got the sprinkler valve. another note about ACE, I noticed their prices were a bit higher than Home Depot, so if you are on a budget like me try to get as much as you can at Home Depot.
also, on a side note, I had some difficulaty finding the brass fittings, so I switched to steel.
I spent 6hrs yesterday using a dremmel tool to carve out the T section and I am only about half way done.
when I get a little bit more time, I'll post pictures.
If you have any questions, feel free to ask on here or send me a message.
29 March 2008 - 12:02 PMFrom the vids I can see that you are using compressed air. My quseting is, is it safe to use CO2? my fear is the colder temps of the CO2 will not only make some parts brittle, but also, when materials become cold they contract and may cause leaks.
also, can the sprinkler valve candle the cold temp?
