I think he's suggesting that he can make designs of ideas that other people have so they can build it (correct me if I'm wrong.)

This is VERY basic, at best. To be useful, it would need to include a check valve at minimum. Also, I don't see the point of building a pump for a nerf gun out of 1/2" PVC; the best way to add volume is to increase the diameter of the air column being utilized. 1/2" is a pathetically small pump if you want to fill a good-sized air tank without breaking your arm. ~Rork

Actually, a small diameter pump would be great for a compact, higher pressure tank.

Hey Blasphemy have you ever used a dual action pump for a homemade before? I've always wondered how comfortable it felt.

So let's recap:

1. You want us to completely loosen our policy banning idea only threads.
2. CS, who no one will question his level of expertise, reiterates the reasoning behind team NH's decision.
3. I decide to throw you a bone and open the possibility to a reasonable exception.
4. You keep fighting.

This site is run the way the founders want it to be run. It's really that simple. We don't overturn policy outright unless they tell us otherwise. If you want to solely kick ideas around, find someplace else to do it. If you have come up with something, or want to talk about the improvement of past creations that's fine. Bottom line is this: build something* before it gets posted here.

* NH does reserve the right to take action on your account if our team of experts thinks unsafe designs are being made. These designs could either result in damage to you, someone else, or major property damage.

I see. I'll accept the decision and I appreciate your input. Thank you for clarifying a subject that's been bugging me for a while.

If I may ask though, what exactly was the exception? I'm afraid I haven't noticed where you mention the exception.

Thanks to everyone for helping me understand this a little bit better.

Here's a quick design I came up with. It's made mostly of PVC and hardware that you can get from Lowes or Home Depot. The trigger is a simple delay trigger, where when you pull it, it dumps the air tank to the right and if you pull it more, it dumps the air tank to left. The picture should explain most of the stuff.
