  2. Scrollsaw Problems

    17 January 2012 - 05:33 PM

    I am having a problem with the cutting on my scroll saw. Whenever I try to cut through any sort of plastic the cut seals back up with melted plastic. I have tried blades ranging from 18tpi-25tpi and all yielded the same result. I tried adjusting the speed on my scroll saw.(I have an older model that on has 2 speeds, see picture) and again got the same result. I tried putting oil on the blade and yet again same result. My question to you is what would be the problem?

    The cut on the left was made by my blade-runner and the cut on my right with my scroll saw.

    When you break apart the bond the melted plastic has you get this

    I couldn't get the camera to focus on the clear plastic so the pics are a little blurry

    Intro
    This is not as much about the actual blaster as you can vary that to fit your wants/needs. This is a write up on how I made mine but to also get this trigger design out there as it is simple, cheap, and the parts can be bought from your local hardware store. This is rev1 so yes it has flaws but I figured I would make this write up so others can make their own version and we can collectively from what we learn by making our own combine our ideas to make the ultimate blaster.

    Materials
    Trigger
    1/4" x 3" carriage bolt
    1/4-20m rubber well nut part# 83115 at Menards
    Small spring(I just got this one out of my box of springs)
    #6 O-ring
    Body
    3/4" Pvc
    1/2" Pvc
    3/4" T-joint
    3/4" coupler
    3/4" end cap
    3/4" x 1/2" reducing bushing x2
    1/2" 90 degree elbow

    Tank/pump
    1" Pvc
    1/2" Pvc
    1" coupling x2
    1" 90 degree elbow

    1" x 1/2" reducing bushing female thread
    1/2" male threaded adapter
    1/2" x 3/4" reducing bushing
    3/4" 90 Degree elbow

    Super Glue
    Hot glue

    Other
    E-tape

    Cost
    Depending on your pump between $14-$20

    Time
    Took me about half an hour to build not including cure time.

    Tools

    Minimum Requirements
    Hacksaw
    Sandpaper
    Hobby Knife
    Drill

    Helpful Tools
    Miter Saw

    Assembly

    This is how the blaster will be assembled
    Posted Image
    Posted Image

    Body

    Put one or your 3/4" x 1/2" bushing onto your T-joint and a 1 1/2" segment of 1/2" pvc in that.
    (this picture is wrong don't put that 1" x 1/2" bushing on yet)
    Posted Image

    Drill a hole as centered as possible in the 3/4" T
    Posted Image

    Next cut 2 2" segments of 3/4" pvc and assemble on one side of your 3/4" T like so.
    Posted Image
    Posted Image

    Put another 3/4" x 1/2" bushing in the T followed by a 1 1/2" segment of 1/2" pvc followed by a 1/2" 90 degree elbow. This is where you barrel will go. I like to use a hopper setup.
    Posted Image

    This is what you should have so far.
    Posted Image

    Now we are going to put the trigger on.

    Its pretty self explanatory but for all you idiots out there, Assemble your parts like shown. (there should be an O-ring between the spring and the T)
    Posted Image

    Now push this assemble into the corresponding holes and screw the bolt into the well nut.
    Posted Image

    Yes its that easy!

    Just in case I filled this hole with goop.
    Posted Image


    Tank/pump

    Sorry no picture of this but you want to assemble your parts like this,
    3/4" x 1/2" bushing.....in 1" coupler.....7" of 1" pvc in the other side.....1" elbow.....2" of 1" pvc.....3/4" x 1/2" female thread bushing.
    Posted Image

    All these parts need to be solvent welded together as they will be holding pressure.

    Now to attach your pump to your tank if you used the same pump as I did. IF you used a different pump then use your brain and figure something out.
    Take your 3/4" elbow and put a 3/4" x 1/2" bushing in one side. Then put a 1 1/2" segment of 1/2" pvc in that with a 1/2" male adapter on that.
    Posted Image

    These pieces also need to be solvent welded together.
    Posted Image

    Put some E-tape on the pump so it fits in the elbow nicely. Put a few drops of superglue on it and push it in as far as it will go.
    Posted Image

    Then put solvent weld to seal it off.
    Use this
    Posted Image

    Wrap the threads of the male adapter in Teflon tape and screw it in. You end up with this.
    Posted Image

    You can now put the segment of 1/2" pvc from the trigger into the 3/4" x 1/2" bushing of the tank.
    Pump it a few times to make sure it doesn't leak and you trigger works. If all works correctly you can solvent weld them together. You end up with this with your pump of choice on the bottom.
    Posted Image

    Ranges

    With slugs and 14" pvc barrel with 12" of nested PETG I am getting 90-100 flat with 9 pumps. You can't pump it past 10 pumps otherwise you will break the pump shaft. So I guess that is an oprv of sorts for you. rev2 will have a built in oprv and an almost semi auto system that is optional.
  4. longshot mods

    16 April 2011 - 05:45 PM

    ACCIDENTALLY POSTED BEFORE I WAS DONE WITH THE WRITE UP FOR PART ONE!!!! it WILL BE UP SHORTLY.
    Okay so I had a longshot sitting in my basement. It had pretty standard mods done (ar's removed, plunger head replacement, breech hole covered up) but I was not even close to satisfied. I wanted to make a this gun have lots of neat features and be a beast of a primary. We will see if i can pull a few ideas out of my ass to finish this. But onto the mods, I only have a few things done so far and am waiting for payday to buy materiel's to finish so this will come in parts. I hope to post a new part every week but who knows shit can happen.

    PART 1
    More accessible clip removal.

    The problem with the longshot for me is that I am a lefty and there is not a clip release on the left side of the blaster making changing clips very akward and slow for a lefty. This could also be done if you are a righty and just want to be able to change clips faster.

    Materials
    Posted Image

    Longshot
    Screwdriver
    Metal rod(don't know the dimensions of mine)
    Drill
    Drill bit(size depends on what size your metal rod is)
    Hot glue gun
    hot glue
    Dremel with cutting wheel of something to cut metal rod with

    First thing you are going to want to do is open that sucker up.
    NOTE-mine was previously modded if yours is stock the internals will look different.

    Posted Image

    Next you need to gut all the internals accept for this piece.

    Posted Image

    Mark right along where the top of the shell comes up to the clip release.

    Posted Image

    Unscrew that screw.

    Posted Image

    Remove the piece from the blaster and extend the line straight across.

    Posted Image

    Mark where you want to drill your hole. This is where your metal rod will be going through.

    Posted Image

    Drill your hole.

    Posted Image

    your metal rod should fit in it nicely.

    Posted Image

    Next you are going to want to bend your rod to a 90 degree angle.

    Posted Image

    Mark it where you want to cut. It needs to go all the way through the clip release piece.

    Posted Image

    Cut it with whatever you want. I used a dremel with a cutting wheel.

    Posted Image
    Posted Image

    Bend your rod to another 90 so it looks like so,

    Posted Image

    Next you are going to need to dremel out the spots I have marked on the shell, or wherever you rod crosses a wall in the shell.

    Posted Image

    Posted Image
    Mine looks kinda crappy but its fine.

    Mark how far down you want your new clip release to come.

    Posted Image

    Cut with your chosen method.

    Posted Image

    Fill in your clip release piece with hot glue to hold the rod int place.

    Posted Image

    Posted Image

    This now makes it much easier to change clips. I will upload a video of it very soon.

    PART 2
    Plunger head replacement

    Materials
    Screw driver
    1.5 inch od rubber washer
    1 inch od metal washer x2
    lube

    Unscrew these two screws.

    Posted Image

    This is how to assemble it onto the plunger rod. you don't need the small washer I don't know why it is on there.

    Posted Image

    Should look something like this.

    Posted Image

    Lube it up and reassemble. This would be the time to take out the ar's if you are keeping the stock breech. If you like you could have a decent blaster now, I wanted more so part 3 is on the way. Shoudld be up in a week or so.

  5. Eagle Eye Cpvc Breech

    31 January 2011 - 04:01 PM

    Alright so I got an Eagle eye from my dad for free and I wanted to do something with it. I was making a Pvc/cpvc breech at the time and an Idea came into my head. I got working and really this is very simple.

    Materials
    3.5 inches of 1/2" cpvc
    E-tape
    Dremel
    drill
    marker
    exact-o-knife
    15 minutes of your life

    OK so lets get started. First you are going to want to pry of the priming bar. I used a claw hammer and it was very easy.

    Posted Image

    Next take out all the screws and open it up. Here is what it should look like.

    Posted Image

    Gut the internals, I chose to gut the electronics also but you can leave them if you want.

    Posted Image

    Next make a mark at least 5/8" from the back of the barrel.

    Posted Image

    Then mark off a slot big enough for your dart to fit into plus an extra half an inch or so. Cut out the slot with a dremel.

    Posted Image

    Posted Image

    Posted Image

    Posted Image

    Now clean it up a bit with some sandpaper and an exact-o-knife

    Posted Image

    Next drill a hole in the shell big enough for your dremel's sanding drum to fit through. It should go on the little ridge in the front of your shell. You can kinda see it in this picture. It is to the left of the hole I drilled.

    Posted Image

    Put your plunger assembly in the gun and put the two halves together. Dremel a slot in the shell big enough for you to be able to place the dart in the old barrel.

    Posted Image

    Posted Image

    Now take your 3.5 inches of cpvc and wrap it in e-tape till it fits nicely in the stock barrel. It should be able to slid back and forth and if you push it all the way back, cover the barrel with your hand and blow into the plunger tube you should loose no air.

    Breech open
    Posted Image

    Breech closed
    Posted Image

    Wrap the plunger head in e-tape and lube it up.

    Posted Image

    Put everything back where it goes and screw the gun back together.


    Final thoughts, this was a really simple mod. I am satisfied with the range. It gets about 55-60 flat but that is not official since there is 3 and a half feet of snow on the ground. I did this by shooting down my sidewalk and counting how many posts I passed on my fence since each post is 5 feet apart. It averaged out to be about 55-60 feet with single bb darts.
