Built a SUB (stand up bike)

I was given a 24" wheel MTB in pretty good shape and decided to build a SUB with it.

Re: Oxygen tank

Might be NPT vs BSP :?: although 1/2" is pretty close, both 14 TPI

Re: KISS BB pistol

Started the conversion to pellet, bracket at the front end to support the barrel and the collar that is going to lock the barrel in place. Cut out a piece of 3/4" aluminium with a hole saw then polished it in a drill :D

Re: KISS BB pistol

Some testing shows how wildly inaccurate a smooth bore BB pistol is, I will convert it to a .177 pellet and try again, maybe a sliding barrel breach load again :idea:

Re: KISS BB pistol

All together with sights, 2 rear posts will go up and down, front post will go up and down and swing side to side for adjustment KISS. Grip is coated with lacquer but is still a bit sticky so I got my finger prints on it :shock: Block on the muzzle is an idea I had for an easy muzzle loader, barrel ...

Re: Help me find a "high speed" (air)valve

You want to dump the whole chamber for one shot? then a simple QEV setup will work fine, If you're getting a hissing then it sounds like it is connected wrong. This is as simple as it gets, it's my KISS pistol :shock: (this is filled from the P port of the QEV so it is not modified, if you want to f...

Re: KISS BB pistol

Original plan was to use only threaded fittings for the chamber just to see what I could make by screwing parts together :idea: I know not everybody will have access to welding equipment, all I have is a drill press and the Tig welder is where I work in the maintenance shop, but when I realized I co...

Re: Acetylene

I'd make the 100psi compressed air work, and have in the past.

Re: Honing a barrel ID - a quick how-to

I had to polish out the end of my .177/4.5mm ID barrel to let the pellet seat nicely, had to use a M4 bolt with the head cut off and a slit in one end to hook in a small piece of emery tape.

Re: Compact .177

I liked the sliding barrel idea so much I converted this one as well, makes dead space zero now, minimal leaks and easier to load. Didn't seem to effect accuracy :D Also made a fixed length removable stock to suit the new sights. 8) 01.jpg 02.jpg Target.jpg [youtube]https://youtu.be/F5-t4Mw9Mik[/you...
