Looking inexpensive pnuematic cylinders

I am looking for a source for inexpensive pneumatic cylinders and related goodies, preferably in the Sacramento area. I am not above doing a little demolition work to get the parts ... in fact I rather enjoy it!!  All sizes can be used.

Hydraulic Cylinder Compressor? Answered

Ok, so I need to make a compressor that reaches 4500 psi.  I live in a farm town and my dad has a tractor so I wondered if I took two identical hydraulic cylinders and filled one with what I was compressing, and the other I powered with the tractors hydraulic system, if I would be able to achieve high pressure and fill tanks, assuming the hydraulic pump and cylinders are rated for that pressure.  Or could I just use a hydraulic compressor.

A question for experienced mechanics

I  know someone who has a newer model of the Dodge Ram with a Hemi V8.  It has a special gas-saving feature which turns off 4 of the cylinders when it is at highway speeds.  I was wondering if this was a practical idea to do to an old 350 small block.  I know that you could just unplug the spark plugs to 4 cylinders.  Of course, you would have to do something to release the pressure also. (I was thinking of removing the entire spark plug.) I am not very experienced in auto mechanics so I was wondering if anyone here could figure this out.  PS : This option of shutting down cylinders was also available in older Cadillacs I beleive it was called the 4-6-8, which shut down either 2 or 4 cylinders.  This engine however, was known for it's problems, which is why I was wondering about doing this.

Edison Wax Cylinder Recordings

I'm not sure this is the correct category, but I didn't see one specifically for audio endeavors!

Hot water cylinder question! Answered

Ok, so you have a hot water cylinder full of hot water... no matter in which way it is heated, how does it stay hot all the way until all the hot water is used up when you having a shower or whatever?... which seems like a full tank, piping hot until the end. If you are replacing the hot water with cold water as it is being used would this not just regulate the water temp and make it colder straight away? If you have a hot cup of tea, just add a little cold water... why does this not happen with a hot water cylinder? Thanks

Revolver with swing out cylinder

I was looking at guns on Wikipedia and saw a pic of a revolver with a swing out cylinder. I went straight to work and made the swing out cylinder, but I couldn't figure out how to make the rest of the gun and keep the cylinder from moving all over the place. I don't have a digital camera, but I can tell you how I made it. 1. Take a blue rod 2. Attach a dark grey connector on 1 end of the rod 3. Put 1 grey cylinder spacer on the rod, followed by 2 blue ring spacers 4. Put the blue rod through the hole of another dark grey connector 5. Put 2 more blue ring spacers on, followed by 1 more grey cylinder spacer and attach 1 more dark grey connector to the other end of the blue rod 6. Take 1 white rod and snap on 2 white snowflake connectors, then snap the rod into the dark grey connector in the middle of the blue rod (the dark grey connector should be in the middle of the 2 white snowflake connectors) 7. Take another white rod and attach a dark grey connector on 1 end of it, then slide the white rod through the hole of 1 of the dark grey connectors on the blue rod, then slide on another grey cylinder spacer and attach 1 yellow connector on top of the white rod 8. Do #7, but on the other side of the blue rod 9. For the handle, I took 3 green connectors and snapped them on to 1 white rod, then put 3 small green rods on the bottom of each green connector (Look below to find a little bit better explanation) 10. Take 3 yellow connectors and attach them to a white rod, then connect all 3 to the 3 green rods mentioned in #9 11. Take 3 more green connectors and attach them to a white rod and add 3 small green rods to the top of the 3 green connectors and attach them to the 3 yellow connectors in #10 BETTER EXPLANATION 1. A green connector has 4 places for 4 rods (I will call them teeth) 2. From left to right, it goes empty tooth, white rod, empty tooth, small green rod 3. A yellow connector has 5 teeth for 5 rods 4. From left to right, it goes small green rod (from the green connectors mentioned above), white rod, empty tooth, empty tooth, small green rod 5. Same as #2, but it goes small green rod (from the yellow connectors mentioned above), white rod, empty tooth, empty tooth If anyone knows what I'm talking about and makes these pieces & has a digital camera, please take pics and show me so ppl can see what I'm talking about. Also, if anyone finds out how to make the rest of the gun, please tell me and show me how you made it (but please don't take credit for my design of the cylinder & handle. If you mod/have to mod any of these 2 parts to make the rest of the gun, don't forget to credit me for the original design of the 2 parts). Also, if anyone does make the gun, please post an instructable for it. I would love to see the gun that I almost got to make. So please tell me where to go to get the instructable I you decide to post it. Also, the gun doesn't have to shoot anything. Thanks to everyone that contributes.

GoPro Scuba Cylinder Mount

Hi there, I'm new here. I've recently found an entry-level 3D online modelling software, Tinkercad and have been Tinkering ever since. I'm into scuba diving and I've long wanted to design a GoPro mount for the cylinder to give a 3rd person view of me while I'm swimming about enjoying life underwater. (Think a less-sexy Lara Croft!) I wanted to run it past you guys to see what you think. I've attached 2 screenshots, because as you can see, the mount I've designed is collapsible, to save space in my GoPro bag. I've done the maths (Pythag) so each side is perfectly lengthed to create a right-angled triangle, with the hypotaneuse (long edge) is facing down my body, towards my feet, so that the camera view won't be obstructed. I've used a Pythag triple, so the arms measure 3", 4", 5". This was done for 2 reasons: a) It was easier to desine using these measurements and b) I don't want it sticking too far up from my cylinder so that it doesn't catch on wildlife/coral/divers. As this is my first GoPro mount that I've designed, I've had to go on deimensions I've found online for the actual hinges. I've settled on approx 3mm for each prong as well as the gap in between. I have actually shaved off .25mm from the middle prong of the 3-pronged-hinge, and left the 2-pronged-hinge at 3mm for the gap and prongs. I'm going to get the pieces 3D-printed by a local service I've found on 3DHubs.com, either in ABS plastic or in resin, though I'll probably go for ABS as it seems to be a bit more hard-wearing, even if it's not so detailed. In terms of mounting it to the tank, I will use 2 headstraps, with the over-the-top strap removed from each one and glue the plastic bits of each of them together, at the correct length of course. I would join them using a seperate piece of plastic and either a hot glue gun, superglue or even some sort of epoxy, whatever lasts longest in prolonged exposure to seawater. I would probably place it nearer the top of the tank, near to where the strap of the BCD jacket goes round it. Does anybody have any advice for me in terms of the design from a functional point of view as well as from whether they think it would actually get a good shot on the camera please? I look forward to your feedback, good or bad!

How do I construct a Pneumatic Cylinder?

I would like to know if anyone has made a Pneumatic cylinder out of an old Coleman Lantern green gas tank. Or What about making out of PVC? I'm making a halloween prop that it using a door closure as a piston. It needs about 60 to 70 pounds of pressure per use and will be fired about 10 times. It uses up about 5 pds of pressure on each firing. Any ideas on making a cheap regulator for this would be helpful too. The prop will be outside in the woods for a haunted trail. So having it self contained would be nice. I didn't want to run an air hose 150' to make it operate. Thanks.

Would installing a manual master cylinder in a 1979 Datsun 280ZX be a good idea?

I need to put in a new braking system in a Datsun 280ZX that I am converting to electric. Since there is no vacuum from an engine, I was considering using some sort of vacuum pump but I came upon using a manual master cylinder instead, which is good because it does not require extra power besides my leg, but since my vehicle initially came with power brakes, I am not sure if it will be compatible. I will most likely have to replace all the brake lines, because they are fairly old and there is a good chance that they've been damaged. So this gives me the chance to replace them with suitable lines for either type of master cylinder. Does anyone have any experience with this sort of thing? Any input would be greatly appreciated!

Nissan Sentra How to disable Spark and Fuel injection on one cylinder? Answered

2002 Nissan Sentra GXE 1.8 liter engine. How to disable Spark and Fuel injection to one cylinder? Explanation. This car has been losing small amounts of Anti Freeze. I thought it was leaking into the Oil from the Head Gasket. Oil looked a little milky to me. Had a mechanic check it out and he believes it is leaking into the cylinder chamber. He said he didn’t see any water in the oil. Some white smoke is coming from the exhaust, but not too much. Hopefully I have caught it before it gets too bad. Since this car has 175,000 miles, it would be too expensive to just replace the head gasket. As an alternative, I’m going to try K&W; Head Gasket and Block Treatment. I have read where this will work in most circumstances if you follow the instruction to the letter. In the instruction it says to check the spark plugs for an Orange/White crystal or fluid appearance. I assume the idea to remove the spark plug is so the pressure from the cylinder compression will not force the treatment back and not allow it to really seal correctly. But how do you disable the Spark and Fuel injection on one cylinder? Any help or experience would be helpful.

Recoil simulation! Gas single action air cylinder or extended solenoid? Answered

OK, final question for this project! You guys on the other answer topics gave been a great help even if I haven't had time to reply yet! One half sorted onto the other. I have a tube with a 25mm diameter about 20cm long ( I could put a smaller pipe inside this and extend it at least another 20cm) I need recoil. Not super realistic, but as heavy as possible. Budget is about 40 pounds. (Money) My current ideas include either a 350g metal 20mm diameter by 10cm bar and a spring, being moved by a 250g solenoid with 10mm stroke, I would replace the metal solenoid bar (thing inside soldnoid) with a longer one, this will encrease stroke. Even if this did work there would be little recoil, though it is cheap and very easy. Power is a very short 12v pulse. The alternative idea is the pneumatic one, I don't really want to do this asi need to conserve my air supply for the other part of this project. It's effectively a solenoid valve (12v pulse) and an air cylinder (homemade to conserve price) which is attached to that weight aforementioned. Power is 6bar. This should provide significant recoil but is expensive, difficult and wastes large amounts of gas. is there a better way? Is there an electronic way that could avoid gas but still have heavy recoil and use my 12v pulse? Even if it is out of my budget, it'd be great to know. This is to simulate a backwards recoil as heavy as possible. Final question (unless something goes wrong) I promise!  Thanks.
