Re: Aluminum cylinder for Eclipse

Lol. Don't exactly have an answer for you Jack. Should only be a few hundred each in production. It solves the thermal issues and will increase the operating pressures.

Aluminum cylinder for Eclipse

Finally got a metal solution for the cylinder in the Eclipse. This weighs two ounces less than the acetal one with lightening holes. It was made on a mill in three pieces then bolted together and finished on the fourth axis to cut the cam. http://i16.photobucket.com/albums/b12/solararis/026b9214-5e1...

Re: Pressure Amplifier Spud Launcher?

What about efficiency benefits regarding the difference between decanted air and the volume of air pressure created from a metered combustable source? I think the old Tippmann paintball gun that used propane claimed something like 3000 shots from a single bottle. https://www.google.com/search?q=tipp...

The derringer is a workof art, even for a modest genius. I really like that it is a coax.

Welcome

Great that you are closer. Perhaps we can meet someday soon. Things are looking up for Eclipse and I will likely be in Canada soon promoting at defense shows. Where exactly did you wind up?

Next add a pulse valve and an air piston to auto-load for you.

A basic design with a outer plastic casing would work well to give the look.

Use a safety relief valve in case you forget to watch it.

The fireworks systems at Disney use air cylinders to adjust the angle and direction as well. Very nice.
