So in effect if you stretch the spring you will regain its strength? And would the crystal be hit from the top by the hammer? i know its pointless trying to fix that

Exepting that smaller piezos last for a day. Mine has a noticable drop in spark and frequency of spark, after about 3years. so time for a new one i think.

Wear on BBQ igniters

Just a simple question. Do BBQ igniters "wear out" like piezio igniters do?

IF you have a sleved barrel for the golf ball, the points where the sleeve meets ceates more than enough backspin, or front spin it depends on how you mount it

I looked through the sticky, so basicaly there must be a minute gap between the piston and chamber, so that the chamber can fill with air through this gap. I understand the basic concept of how they work, of the higher pressure in the chamber forces the piston back and the air out the barrel. Thanks...

Pneumatic question

ok i get that a pneumatic works with compressed air in a chamber that is released via a piston that then gets directed out through a barrel. My question is, how do valves release this air? And must the pistons be made in a specific way?

The fuel system is effective after practise as you dont get exact ammounts every time. Zippo lighter gas fed via pipe I use as fuel lines on a remote controled plane(plane doesnt exist anymore).
