In Topic: Caliburn: Mag-fed Pump-action Springer

I've been working on a K14 Caliburn, figured I'd post something here.

There are three parts that need to be replaced, Plunger, Frontbutt, and Rearbutt, to accommodate the larger spring diameter. Then just swap the spring, and add a longer barrel. Doubling O-rings is strongly recommended.

The prime is tough, but so far it's been really solid and it doesn't feel like it's going to break so that's pretty cool.

In Topic: Different Wiring For Two Stage+ Flywheel Builds

Yeah the diagrams are correct. Or at least they are what I intended. The two stages are in parallel while the motors within each stage are in series.

Since the two stages are in parallel though I don't think it makes a difference. You got me thinking, and I just threw together a quick rig to check and see if the idea had any merit. I rigged two motors to my bench power supply, once with them in series, and once with them in parallel. Your physics is correct, the pair in series pulled 0.22A at 7.4V fixed and with no load, while in parallel they pulled 0.56A at the same voltage. The motors in series were audibly spinning much slower than those in parallel.

I then doubled the voltage supplied to the motors in series, and at 14.8V fixed they pulled 0.31A, a bit more than half the current of the parallel system, at a very (audibly at least) similar rpm. I believe your theory is correct, while impractical.

The issue is that all we do is redirect the problem. Watts=Volts*Amps and so instead of choosing a bigger 3 Cell battery that could handle the amperage you recommend picking a bigger six cell battery that diverts the problem. Minimizing amperage is definitely benificial, but seems unnecessary and impractical for our use.

Don't troll.


If you do, Nerfhaven will complain to whatever company provides your internet stating that you are harassing them and that they would like your provider to take action to stop you from harrasing them. Simple.


In general, the moderators are fair and understanding, so if you aren't here to cause a problem, there won't be a problem.

You can get worker flywheels on amazon.

If you had posted this a week earlier, I would be in, with 4 others. Conflicts have arisen, but I'll be on the lookout in the future.
