Introduction: Air Gun Nozzle Extension... Fits Amflo,Coilhose and Knockoffs of the Two

 Ever wish you could get some air blasted into a akward or
 hazardous place but your nozzle just does not cut it safely...
 well now you can
Here are some easy to follow directions for an extension for
 an Amflo and coilhose airguns... this also fits some of the knockoffs..

 I did this at The Tech Shop in San Jose California...

Step 1: Step One.. Materials...

(1) Coilhose airgun
(1) 1/8 npt male to male pipe nipple
(1) .500 od x .375 id alluminum pipe...  24 inches long...  ( you can make yours longer or shorter if you want)
(1)1/8 npt pipe tap
(1) Tap handle

Step 2: Step Two... Cutting the Pipe...

Measure out 24 inches of pipe and cut...
make your cuts square...
again  if you want you can make yours longer or shorter if you wish...

Step 3: Step Three.. Deburr...

Now you are going to deburr your pipe on both ends on the inside and outside...
 i used a belt sander to do my deburring...

Step 4: Step Four... Tapping the Pipe...

 Now you are going to cut a 1\8 npt thread
 on both ends of your pipe...  If you use
 a pipe with a .375 inside diameter you can  just
 run your tap right in without having to drill the
 end out because the id is close enough to
 the right size to work...  So make sure your h\threads are straight
 so your nozzle is straight when it is finished...

Step 5: Step Five... Dissasembly and Lay Out...

No you are going to take the tip off of
 the gun and set it aside... and put all your components
 on the table to get ready for reassembly...

Step 6: Step Six... Reassembly...

 So now you are going to use the pipe nipple to connect the pipe to
 your air gun and then just screw the tip onto the end of the
 pipe and now you have an extended air nozzle for
 getting into hazardous or just ackward places..
