My first attempt at making a HAMP.
No tape to disintegrate, no yarn to deal with, no fuss no muss.
So the main construction is pretty standard. Personally i like the rscb placement, it's nice and comfy and the ball valve keeps the plunger from coming all the way out. However, after having my e-tape seal turn into a bunch of black goo and a SNAP that became yet another of my creative abortions, I wanted something that took the best of both worlds. Super simple HAMP construction/mechanics and the SNAP's great (and durable) rubber plunger seal were the goals I shot for.
So, all I ended up needing was a 3/4" plug, 2 O-rings, a 1.25" washer and a screw. I'm not entirely sure about the specific size of the O-rings but if you manage to talk your way into the Home Depot tool room like I did they have a little O-ring kit with the perfect size O-rings which i bought for 15 cents each.
Ranges were taken outside & I'm averaging 50ish feet with streamlines and ghetto neighbors looking at me like I'm a weirdo. Anyway; feedback, advice, opinions, musings or pretty much anything Capt. Slug has to say is welcome.
