I believe you could make one by using multiple smaller transformers. I.e. if you have a 5v wall transformer (must be AC not DC) you could provide 24v to the input (make sure it is a source of 24v that cannot supply too much current, as if you put 24v through it with something capable of like 1 AMP, ...

Hmm... I think the air fuel combination in the fuel tank is kind of scary myself... What happens when you get down to the last bit of fuel in the tank, and the hose now has a mixture of air compressed at 100 PSI and Gasoline... That is about the conditions inside an engine when the spark ignites the...

http://www.joeynovak.com/wiki/index.php/Image:SchraderValve.jpg I think a lot of people struggle with the pop in ones because they think they are fragile, the brass part of the stem goes all the way to the larger rubber grommet end, so just grab the thing with a pair of channel locks (like above) a...

The Little One

So, this is my little gun, you can build it in 5 minutes, and it costs about $5. $10 if you get the good oarnge juice. There is an article about how to build it here

Holy Crud this forum gets no traffic, what the heck is a "Blow Gun Valve"??

And isn't a ball valve a little too slow for a mini? Has anyone got any experience doing this?
