This is my newest pneumatic. Finally I have a piston valve to call my own. This is the valve that I have been working on that is very easy to make. Anyone who has ever glued pvc together can make this valve. It looks a little odd, but I wasnt trying to make it look good. All I wanted was a valve that performs great and is easy to build. By these standards, this valve is perfect.
UPDATE: This valve never worked. The reason is that half way through building it, I gave up. I just didn't like the way it was turning out. This is my fourth failed attempt at a piston valve. Oh well, I'll just have to keep trying.
This is the sprinkler valve I modified to get more power. I didn't want to spend $200 on supah valves from SpudTech.com so I tried to make a valve that would be very powerfull and inexpensive. By no means is it as powerful as a supah valve but in compairison to an ordanary sprinkler valve, it adds a lot of power. Air flow is still restricked but the speed at which the valve opens is greatly increased which is what gives it the extra power.
This used to be a 4 ft. x 8 ft. sheet of plywood, but after shooting it a few times with my big cannon, this is all that's left.
