Blocking your stock off can be as simple as a pvc knockout cap. They usually sit flush inside the pvc pipe. Just make sure your stock is completely airtight, the caps are usually only rated for 60psi and will blow out if your stock isn't airtight. An epoxy plug will work well on smaller diameters. F...

Instead of asking spudders, why don't you ask a 4x4 forum. Four wheelers usually use C02 to air their tires up when they leave the trail. I've known four-wheelers who haven't used air in their tires for several years. Probably longer than most of the spudders on this forum have been alive.

1. Many of the modded sprinkler valve guns can be disassembled. Most sprinkler valves are threaded and not cemented together. 2.A quick search would've have resulted in far too many threads explaining why. Solenoids pilot too slowly. Blowguns will actuate faster even if you have some ungodly length ...

How smooth do you want your chamber/silencer? You could cut your chamber/silencer where you want the plug and then either add a coupling too reattach the two pieces or use epoxy to attach them.

Your Welcome. This shows how much of a POS the earlier versions of phpBB were. One simple space and it broke all the url formatting.

Basically it is a rebranded product. Some one else makes it for Target. If you can find it on the Target website you might find the manual. Using it is pretty simple. Check the oil. Plug it in. Turn it on. Attach a hose and/or tool. Adjust air pressure to suit. It is a cheap homeowner compressor, yo...

Why not get both? Dremel -- $25-$39 I use the Dremel 395 Multipro. I bought 10 and received a discount at $21 a piece.

White River Jct, that's a pretty nice area. I was growing up in Windsor before my parents were killed by a drunk driver on Rt 5 by the entrance to the N. Hartland Dam. Some of my fondest memories are ones of going to silhouette shoots down in Springfield,VT. We used to shoot at the range in Hartland...

Depending on the 'current' political scene and in particular the high school/college violence the ATF really could go either way. While most see spudders as recreational toys, simply take a 10X hybrid or even a pneumatic, remove the barrel and replace it with a cap, you've got yourself a pipe bomb. ...

I doubt that silencer for a spud gun it going to run into legality issues since a spud gun is not considered a firearm in most jurisdictions... but a silencer is a NFA weapon itself. http://www.atf.treas.gov/firearms/faq/faq2.htm#m30 (M30) Are Paintball and/or Airgun Sound Suppressers NFA firearms?...

This is not a new idea. Basically the same as the "Vogt pattern". Other than propelling a BB out of the barrel I fail to see where it is the same as a cloud or vortex. The Wikipedia entry for venturi principle is what I'm going off from. While they work great for things like jet pumps which are used...
