P.S. Feel free to ignore this

I'd like to note right now that the Ball valve designs are as old as potato guns. In fact, the one is a potato gun, the other is a modification they probably made before anyone in the NIC did. I just don't want kids calling it the "Zero homemade" or something. People called a basic ball valve homemade a "Sniper5000 homemade," and look where he went! B)

Thanks for the compliments. Hope the writeups are helpful.

What about the basic valve system you developed? Could that be called the Zero Valve?

I'd just like to say that I was the first to make a hose handle homemade.

But that one looks a lot better than mine.

Didn't that involve a Sawtooth?

And, though it would simplify things, no, please don't call it a "Zero valve."

This is going to depress you, but I have no idea. Unlike all the other designs I've contributed to this site, these two new designs I haven't made. I got a request for a basic homemade writeup, and with so many questions on Hose Handles, I figured I'd make some visual and textual aid to those new to the homemade field. I've built custom parts that use everything these homemades require, to perfect success, but never have applied it into those specific designs. I never really had the desire to do so, I was happy with my Nerf guns. So really, these are just guides, as opposed to instructions. If I had you under any other impression, I apologize.

I've made a gun very similar to the Cutlass, though, with the same hose handle, but a much larger tank volume. The best I can get out of it is around 90 or so feet flat. This is centrally because the best pressure I can get into it with the large, inefficient bike pump I have is about 50psi, no where near the pressures I wanted. With a smaller pump, you could get those, but that desires a smaller tank volume, like the Cutlass there, or even smaller still. I'm working on it.

Zero how do you know where loser went? I mean we all know he quit but how do you know where he went are you stalking him? Does that mean if I think of some spiffy homemade thats named after me I get stalked if I quit? Hmm I like the idea of male groupies..wait no I don't I swear. I believe we have one sick phychotic person here...me for thinking of this.

Edit: if this makes no snse don't worry about it I typed ita 1:21 in teh AM so it's probably incoherent.

Listen, it's not my fault he's so hot. I blame it on his mother.

As for the groupies, you must first prove your worth with all things phallic. For that, you may benefit from a visit to New Jersey.

And even if he was, I'd have no troubles. Everything would probably be easier that way anyways... Er... *cough*... Hello again, loser!

You've just entered a past tense on the boards, now. Worry not, I've even heard people call you brilliant in your absence, so your memory is well preserved... ;)
