Well I got my bottle and hose today... Jesus it took forever to hand pump that son of a bitch. Not sure if it's the psi difference, but between the co2 and hpa tank, the hpa seems higher pitched but quieter at the same time. I only put off 3 rounds each bottle, tomorrow will be a good testing day.

Cool gadget. Meant to blast tire beads onto a rim. I think this would launch golf balls nicely. Has a diaphragm actuated dump valve. Barrel un-threads, so its easily replaced with one suitable for golf balls, spray paint can caps filled with marbles, bean bags, DIY flechette rounds... My creative juices are flowing. I'm getting one.

Well goddamn. Hpa is definitely quieter than co2... But fuck it's a pain in the ass to pump. I guess I'll deal with the mechanical noise and buy a compressor. Hand pump is out of the question for long time use.

just for the 3d printer quality problem you can have ( or your " buddy ")

the BED leveling fix (fix = bltouch 10 dollars ) = because you can't have a good level with your hand , i know , we know )
but the first problem can be your level of skills in build and fix a meckanism ?

speed , materials ( bad pla , petg , flex , abs ... " transparent , conductor , fluo , with iron carbon or metal powder inside ....) , advanced settings in your programm ....

program settings


materials and usages settings
>>optimisation and or post-production<<

and the starter BUSE of printer is 0.4 ( mid cap )
you can buy a 0.8 or 0.1 . depend of your needs and time ...

double extrusion ( for flexible TPU print with other solid materials at the time like pet-g , for don't loose lot of time and maters

you can't put a double extrusion on the anet A6 easily ( but than can be very good with a normal direct motor to extruder for FLEX and a detached motor connected extruder for hard maters pla abs petg , the 0.1 or 0.2 buse aren't recommended for normal printing , the 0.2 is for very détailled figurines i.e , or for make vis or mini system

the best choice must be 0.3 .

Well.... The other day I got bamboozled by Walmart.


Bought a case of "zap attack" paintballs, they only make 1 color ball(green with yellow paint) so whenever you see a case anywhere you know automatically what color it is..... Got home and opened the case. Well, they weren't green.... They were USA Flag colored!!!! They also don't "perform" as well? If that makes sense. Every single ball explodes in this "flatline" barrel so I have to go back to the original 8" barrel.... Sitting in the snow(water) they do not swell up like every other paintballs I've handled, they just melt instead. And by a hair or so, they are smaller than average paintballs.






I can't find them at all anywhere online surprisingly.

So.... I did some tinkering and found the original barrel to the tippmann slides over the LDC adapter on my one pellet guns.



Single load, but I can turn my pellet gun into a paintball gun. Don't shoot far but it's a start. I can swap that adapter to a stronger gun for better performance at some point. or other diy in mind. kinda happy now :)

Single round of paint? My 30 round banana clips are laughing out loud.
If you want on or off the list just let me know.
