I make many homemades. I'm on my 5th. The only bad part is the drilling in of the tire value. I needed a better way to do it, so I came up with this. It's made from a 1/2coupler, 3inches of 1/2inch pipe and the tire value.

I cut an inch of the pvc and solvent weilded it to the coupler. Then i placed the tire value on the open side of the coupler with no glue, and then solvent weilded the remaining pvc to the other side of the coupler, boxing in the tire value and making a complete air tight seal. It's the greatest homemade idea I've ever had. Here's a preview of next homemade. I haven't installed it yet, but it's going in the un-capped place under the ball value, just need to get the right part first.

That's a cool idea. I'm not sure I understand if the tire valve is air storing system or air pressurizing system. Maybe there is something obvious I'm missing or maybe it's a general concept. I never done a homemade so I wouldn't know.

Its a decent idea, but badly executed. And by the way, its called clear primer/cement, unless you are going for the purple/white camo.

Quick Edit-
I run this site, and therefore I own all property on it so here is a link to a good homemade check valve, although in a different application. They work pretty well.

ice, is there some reason you're so averse to proofreading? Some kind of traumatic creative writing experience in your past perhaps? If your typing and spelling skills are that bad you should consider typing up your posts in something that will automatically check for spelling or grammar errors. The more recent version of Firefox do this within the browser.

As for valve stems, it's usually just easier (and more reliable) to get the self-sealing bulkhead type, or ones with a standard pipe thread.

I'll second what CS said about the ones with built in threads. After using them, I much prefer schrader valves with 1/4 inch NPT threads so I can use a 1/4 inch X 1/2 inch bushing to attach them. If you use a bushing, building is as easy as screwing the pieces together and it certainly is stronger than the snap in versions.

I'm just trying to figure out why you're so angry and without sleeves....

My guess is that you're severely constipated and fresh off a torturously fruitless contest with your toilet. The underarmor is clearly to absorb the massive volume of sweat you've worked up battling your bowels to a standstill.

Am I close? Because I NEED to know!

To sig or not to sig? Seriously, I thought the "Zoolander"-esque posing from your last thread was comical, but this...this takes the cake. I'd tell you to just take pictures of the gun and leave your scrawny, quasi-nude body out of it, but really, I enjoy laughing at you.

Anyway, I've done the same thing before, with a lot less gross purple stuff everywhere. I used 3/8" PEX inside of 1/2" CPVC to get the seal and I used goop/plastic weld epoxy. It works well as a home-made connector to your pump. But if your pump isn't going to be removable, why do this in the first place? Just stick your pump in there and if there isn't a check-valve built into your pump, just pick one up from McMaster.com. They're only a few bucks and a lot easier to work with. Cheers.

Can you guys stay focused on the mod for 2 seconds? I can worry about my dress style myself. I like under amour because it feels good, thats it. I'm not anorexic, or full of myself, or any shit like that. I even got VACC unfocused, I mean, that's an accomplishment that I didn't even try for.

I am so going to use your instructions when I inigrate my tire values! This is the best tire value inigration for homemades ever, right?

5. Protip: sarcasm is good for making someone else look like more of an idiot than they already do. However, if you are an idiot to start with, using sarcasm just makes you look like a COLOSSAL idiot.

I'm just kidding. But that is a pretty cool idea there, but maybe a paintjob?

How bout this is a nice way to put in a rubber one, but is pitiful compared to just threading a treaded one in...
threaded shraders Just search shrader on the left

I think there a buck or two. These guys have FAST shipping, and have every PVC fitting imaginable.

:lol:
It's an airtight, inexpensive way to seal a tire vaule into a homemade without having to do any drilling. I fucking hate drilling, cause it screws up for me 50% of the time. Have to buy 6 end caps to get it right. Well, not anymore!

If you're having problems with drilling, it's probably because you're trying to drill a large hole all at once. When you do that, the bit tries to bite too hard, and it just gouges. Start with a small bit and build your way up, and you'll end up with a smooth hole.

Er, yes he could. But there is a reason he put the multi-barrel attachment on it. Wait, what the hell, this has nothing to do with what this thread is about.
On topic: Ok I guess its a good homemade solution, but I have never had a problem with drilling.
