Epoxy bulk buy

Buying syringes of araldite is getting quite expensive. I need an epoxy that I can use for structural components and as an adhesive. I actually prefer something medium viscosity like araldite... It suits my methods. Would anybody have a good value recommendation for me? (anyone in particular? :idea:)

Can we get an australian sticky please? 1/3 of the posts in this section are from australians who can't search. That included me when I joined. I just think it would be better for everyone.

Could become a very good design with some tweaking. The seal at the very back is unnecessary. You need the head of the plunger to seal. If air gets past the plunger head there is a performance loss, and that won't change with the o-ring seal at the very back because some airflow is already diverted ...

Funny, I am using exactly the same thing for my semi-auto, except I am using a 1/4 inch QEV. The setup you have in mind will work well. As I intend to use co2 I must purchase a regulator + CO2 tank + hire a large CO2 tank for filling but my gun will be a lot more reliable because the pressure will b...

I don't believe it is toxic at all. But it is bad for the ozone layer.

Your rotteneggs design actually inspired me to start making bb guns and stuff in the first place, I'd say without you I never would have done any of this.

So, I guess what I want to say is, thanks for ruining my life! :D

25mm PN18 PVC pipe and endcaps, pvc cement and primer. PN18 is over 250 PSI working pressure. But you need to attach a shrader valve and a quarter inch fitting. (Read:epoxy)

My popoff launcher could be made to shoot single shots. It is all about the size of the hole after the blowgun. The smaller the hole, the easier to get semi auto (OBV) The reservior on my gun was quite large so it took years to pump to high pressure with the shockie I had. IMO you should buy this: h...

Here is my short conversation with ebay seller problot on the subject of purchasing bbs. Hello. I must ask before I buy as this is very important. I am in Australia. For legal reasons I must have you mark this item as "slingshot ammo" as in Australia these can not be used in any "gun" and I use for ...

it is harder to push a bolt forward than to pull it back. When you pull it back the stock rests against your shoulder and your back muscles do the work. Pushing it forward is awkward and less muscle groups can be used.

Why not undermount a hand bike pump, one pump should be enough to get 40 psi into a smallish chamber. SSP does seem like the best option here.

I totally agree, I don't think there is anything to gain by making a spring gun other than no need to pump it up. I tried to make a spring gun and it nearly killed me it was that annoying and difficult. The setup above is a very good one. I used pretty much that same setup and it was awesome. Power ...

Like I said, that is because the volume behind the piston is changing too much at fully cocked state. The pic above allows you to have a lower peak force and more energy overall.

There will be a sweet spot for the ratio of piston diameter to projectile diameter. The wider the piston, the harder it can push the projectile at a given piston speed, because it is moving more air at once. The sweet spot is balancing the flow choking due to air being squeezed into a smaller orific...
