This is my first ever Write up, so bear with me.


#105333 Splitfire Leak Problem.

Posted by CD-R on 13 May 2007 - 09:18 PM in Modifications

No, try looking up how splifire valves work, then it should make sense. I can't explain it right now because I need to keep working on my English paper. If you can't find it, I'll explain it tommorrow afternoon.
Now I have some time. Ok, so here is a link to where the splitfire's valves are explained:

scroll about 2/3 the way down the page, the post is by falcon.
What I am saying, is you need to find a way to either push the little black rubber seals back into position, or to lubricate them with something to make them seal better. I'm afraid that to do this, you're on your own, as I was not able to fix mine despite numerous attempts.

#105314 Splitfire Leak Problem.

Posted by CD-R on 13 May 2007 - 08:12 PM in Modifications

The same thing happened to me. It was a slippery slope to a dead splitfire. Make sure that the rubber seal in the back of the valve is sealing with the back of the air chamber. Try pushing the black rubber seal back with a thin dowel, to get it back into position. If that does not work, the you can try lubricating the seal. In my case, these worked temporarily; so, unfortunately, my splitfire died. However, I managed to splice in two AT2K air tanks, and revive it as the splitech 2000; but, that just sprung a leak as well.

#105179 Lcm Summer Tune-up

Posted by CD-R on 12 May 2007 - 10:16 PM in Nerf Wars

I cannot come. There is just no way that I can make it work.
OMC I'll just send the money for the foam with some one else, probably a kid named max. Do you have a scale that you can weigh it on? This way I can compare the two weights to check whether some idiiot stole any of it on the car ride back.

#105175 Measuring Ranges

Posted by CD-R on 12 May 2007 - 10:04 PM in General Nerf

I'm tired of seeing so many arguments about ranges seeming strange, and so much differentiation in how people are measuring them. Today, my friends and I were curious about what ranges our guns could achieve, so we used the following method:
We used a tape measure and chalk to mark out ten foot increments on a straight, flat section of my street. We then wrote the accompanying numbers next to the marks.
This took us only about two to three minutes to do. This method was very simple, and gave us very accurate measurements. It's really basic, but I figured I'd post about it in an attempt to help reduce the amount of inaccuracy pertaining to gun ranges.

#104732 Bullies!

Posted by CD-R on 09 May 2007 - 09:07 PM in Off Topic

I think that Skitzo's advice is a good path to follow. Unless you ,or your relatives are in the direct path of serious physical harm, that you did not initiate, DO NOT HIT THEM. I have a red belt in Tae kwon do, but have never had to hit some one hard while in school(even though the occasional warning shot is necessary). Almost all problems have non-violent solutions. Just use your best judgment, and think about it before you do anything.

#104587 Epoxy

Posted by CD-R on 08 May 2007 - 08:24 PM in Off Topic

Yeah, MEK is nasty stuff. I asked my dad (he used to do neurological research) about it, and he said that the fumes were very toxic. Once I had PVC cement spill in my basement. After cleaning it up, I basically had to sit outside for a few hours to let the fumes dissipate. At least it was nice out, and my dad and I managed to contain the spill fast enough to keep fumes from being a serious problem. But still, watch what you're doing, and don't spill PVC cement!

#104586 Lcm Summer Tune-up

Posted by CD-R on 08 May 2007 - 08:05 PM in Nerf Wars

Some things have come up, so I may have to leave early, or not come at all. I will edit this post when I have more information. Sorry OMC, that means I may not be able to buy that foam from you.

#104493 Bulk Ordering Foam

Posted by CD-R on 07 May 2007 - 10:00 PM in Off Topic

That sounds good. I'll bring the money to LCM. I think that I may have found the same site you ordered from, and their price was exactly the same,+shipping. Before I buy it, I would like to check out how it fits in my barrels, so I will have to make the final decision regarding the purchase at LCM.

Does anyone know where FA24 ordered his foam?

#104439 Bulk Ordering Foam

Posted by CD-R on 07 May 2007 - 07:05 PM in Off Topic

Basically, I'm thinking of bulk ordering FBR, but I don't know where to buy it, or how they ship it. I found some websites, but I would like to hear what you all have to say. One thing that I'm worried about is how my parents will react if a truck load of foam shows up at my front door, so information on how it is shipped would be appreciated.

#104376 Smoke Bombs

Posted by CD-R on 07 May 2007 - 02:29 PM in Off Topic

Nefsharpie6, I'm sorry if I came across as harsh. I was having a bad day, so I may have vented a some of my frustration. In the past, I thought about the use of smoke bombs. Once my clan actually tried using them in a war, but as above stated, we found them too dangerous.

#104307 Smoke Bombs

Posted by CD-R on 06 May 2007 - 09:13 PM in Off Topic

What badger said makes sense. Smoke bombs, or any similar pyrotechnic devices are serious fire hazards. Also, they are dangerous to any one not used to handling them. Furthermore, as with any home made device, they are unreliable; this means that they could, one:not work, or two: make a rather large explosion. I'm sure that most people could make smoke bombs safely, but if one person mixes the wrong chemicals, or anything else, someone is going to get hurt. I think that the main problem is the "what are you crazy kids doing?" factor. As Captain Slug said, I do not think that people (especially the police or fire department) would approve of us setting off smoke bombs.
And as for shooting them out of a gun? Well sure, let's shoot burning chunks of chemicals at each other. I think it would be cool to do, but unfortunately, it's just too dangerous.

Point taken.

#103853 Lcm Summer Tune-up

Posted by CD-R on 03 May 2007 - 09:45 PM in Nerf Wars

I plan to use a mix of micros and megas, but mainly micros. Last time, (at ECNO) I couldn't use my garbage gun (its name is derived form the fact that I made it from random junk in my basement) due to lack of megas, and my 3k broke in the first ten minutes. both problems are now solved. I will be getting a ride with z80, as I am a member of z80's "crew", or as darkshrimp so eloquently put it, an oodle nerfer.

#103832 First Homemade

Posted by CD-R on 03 May 2007 - 08:30 PM in Homemades

I agree with thescheif. I have an AT3K with an extended air tank that is wickedly powerful; it can dent the lid of a paint can at point blank, and shoot through both sides of a pizza box. By dent a paint can, I mean a slight distortion visible by holding it up to a light and watching for a different type of reflection. I have two questions: Are you sure that it was steel, and are you sure that it was 3/16 of an inch thick? But, if you are getting the ranges you're talking about, then good job. You should definitely put up some pictures, or a more detailed description of your design. It sounds similar to something I built a while back: a bike pump, a 2 by six inch pvc air tank, a ball valve, and a barrel about three feet long (I don't think further explanation is necessary). If I remember correctly, mine got similar ranges.
I am not trying to criticize you, or doubt your design. I would just like to know how you made something that powerful.

#103236 Rifled Barrels

Posted by CD-R on 30 April 2007 - 07:12 PM in Homemades

I have gotten some succes with a crude method of my own design:
Basically, you get a piece of brass that fits in side your barrel ( I use CPVC) and put aslice in the end of it about 1/4 of an inch long. After that, you fold out the area near the slice just a few degrees to make a sharp corner. You will have to do some experimenting to find out how much you bend out the brass, as it depends on barrel type. Next is the tricky bit, take the brass, and heat it up on a gas stove until your flame starts to turn green. (This part is dangerous, make sure you wear heat proof gloves when holding the barrel and the brass that you can get off if the heat starts to get through. Also, like I need to tell you guys this, but try not to burn your house down, and immediately after using the heated metal, dunk it in a bucket of water to cool it down). After the metal is heated, jam it down the barrel while twisting it at a constant rate. Then pull it out while making sure that the threads go the same way. Repeat this afew times to get the barrel sufficiently rifled.
The method is crude, yet efffective. I don't know if it's just me, but I feel that my shots go straighter with barrels treated this way; however, I don't have any data to back this up.
