Topics I've Started

Going spring hunting, no idea where to start.

19 April 2017 - 08:44 PM

I am going to be heading out later to the glorious hardware store! Gonna be buying some springs.... But I have no idea where to start. I have an Ace Hardware and Lowes in my area, should I stick to one or the other?

I need to get a spring for a Strongarm in particular right now.

I have this arms race with a friend at the moment...

Spring issues

08 April 2017 - 08:23 PM

Okay, it's been a while.

While my limited access to the site has been a drawback, it has t stopped me from participating in the hobby!

I recently got hold of an old BuzzBee tek6, and I really liked the spring in it as opposed to the one in my EAT. While it fits nicely, I ran into some mechanical drawbacks.

The spring is a little short.

We all know very well that dead space is bad (cough cough reverse plunger)

But the spring is more than dead space. I'm only getting 5/8 of the power I can get out of it, and it seems to be grinding against my plunger rod a little bit too.

I need to make a spacer piece somehow, can somebody point me in the right direction?

I don't feel like buying a new spring, and that's not gonna happen for a while.

Where to find Polycarb?

After a bit of searching on the Lowes website for "Polycarb", all I was able to find was roof panels. Where can I find polycarbonate panels locally? 


I live near a Lowes and a Home Depot, and I'm not very willing to purchase online.



Edit: Also while on the subject of this, how much force can I apply to this before it breaks? I was thinking of making a pump-grip at some point and this is my only available option for a set of pump arms.


That's not all I'll be using it for though... ;)
