A stock airtank. Sometimes its plugged though for less pumps for more pressure.

Well I mean, are you going for semiautomatic or just one helluva powerful shot?

You can't really do semi-automatic with just a hose handle. you need at least two. One you press to load the chamber and one to fire the air out of the chamber.

Well for a semi-auto design that quite a few members of NH are working on, we're doing THIRST's semiauto at2k design. It uses a rubber bladder, thus constantly pushing the air out yet storing an expandable amount.

Well the hose handle broke and, the day before this happened, I went to Walmart so I knew it would be at least a week before I could go back so I foud an old water hose ball valve and put it on and redid most of its design so,right now I just have to look around town for some place that sells plumbers goop and I will have it sealed up.

That had to be the LONGEST sentence ever. The period is your friend. I'd find the pennyarcade comic but right now I'm too lazy. Use periods.

Continuing on, I don't think those hose-handle ball valves are designed to take much pressure. You could try it, but I really wouldn't base your entire design around using one. At least the ones I have look really flimsy and I would NOT want one exploding when I'm trying to shoot/pump. However, if yours is more sturdy, by all means go ahead.

The ball valve is made out of brass.
Is that short enough for you?

Hey don't bash him because his sentences are long, some people like to write really long sentences, I don't really understand whats wrong with that, and as for your question, I don't really see whats wrong with getting regular PVC ball valve, because they are pretty cheap actually, and they work well, and you can probably get it at your local hardware store, I have a couple and they are super cool, and I hope this answers your question.

EDIT: Has anyone else noticed that the topic title is "One Questions"? Not bashing or anything..just wanted to point that out.

It just bugs me a bit. I never said there was anything inherently wrong with it, but that I'd just like if he separated his ideas a bit more. Don't mis-interpret what I say. I never stated it was wrong, simply that I believed he should make more use of periods.

Yes, brass will work fine.

Yes, that was short enough.

It was Two Questions but I forgot what the second one was.

Could regular pipe caulking be a substitute for plumbers' goop?

In what situation? If you're just sealing something that won't be taking much pressure, then maybe but it still isn't recommended.

If you're thinking of sealing your airtank with caulk because it's easier to work with, its not worth it, unless you're into your airtank sending caulk bits flying everywhere...
