Don't listen to them. Peak pressures on a spray and pray are ~60psi.

That is far too low to cause any burst.

I doubt I'll ever go over ~ 10x, but all the parts on my gun can handle 20x so I'd likethe piston to handle that as well. I don't know if you've seen my valve, but there will always be an air cushion and a thick rubber washer to cushion the piston force Would you want a hole/threads in the piston? ...

I advise against aluminium. I think there was an aluminium piston in the past, but it didn't survive long. Steel is really the best option, I'd just get around the density by using a design like SB15 and MrCrowley used. Or you can try modelling your build in GGDT to try out different piston masses....

Of course, I also have a digital metric caliper, and I would also send you the orings that I have Would you want them floating? I have a big box of O-Rings but could not necessarily guarantee that I have one that fits. You're right, it would probably be better if you sent them. I also have a choice...

Also will, I would like to pay in cash and I only have American dollars. It would be about 3/4" x 2-1/2" Thats fine. If I do this, I must insist having the pipe/fitting that it would slide in. We do metric here, so I would be unable to get it myself. And Cash? Why would I want to be paid for someth...

I dare not ask how many litres of epoxy you have used! :shock: Since I started messing with epoxy just over 10 years ago, about 15 litres. How many projects have you tried? Lots! I have seen some of them and they seem very impressive. One question I have is how can you set such complicated structur...
