Re: Spark Rail

It's all sorted, sorry for the late reply I don't get notifications for some reason and have to check my posts for additional comments. And yes a three terminal igniter for a bbq but I managed to sort it out, due to the length of the rails and the fine lines between earthing and not it favored one r...

Re: Wires and Walls.

Thank you for the suggestion, I'll definitely go with the metal epoxy.
And I will be upgrading the cannon over time but for now it'll just be a base model that operates and build onto that. Spark plugs will come in due coarse. :)

I started doubting it all because I spoke to some plumbers who are obviously qualified and took safety way to far and said no to everything really.

Nerf Air Restricter like Piston Valve

Hello Spudders, Please excuse my ill knowledge of the website - First post (however onto forth cannon so I have some experience) I have searched what I could with no success, not quite sure how to word it to begin with, the title is the best I can do. - Basically have a spring retained valve within ...
