Re: fixing a broken 1500

I totally bet that you could remove that piece holding the firing pin in the valve with a gear puller.

Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

woo! got a new 1500! It had a broken pump shaft and one off the laminator plates kept rotating sideways in the laminator assembly so I replaced them with straws and replaced the shaft with the one from my dead 1500.

Re: Power Pak Dribble Leak when shooting

It sounds like a bad o-ring. I've never really worked with an SC powerpak but you would need to remove the nozzle selector to get to the seal in question and I'm not sure how to remove it.

Looks good! I don't think there any other water blasters like the scorpion, it's one of a kind!

Re: Next generation rubber CPS homemade water gun planning

That seems like a perfect battery to use for this haha. When this is done it'll be like the Scorpion on steroids! I'm looking forward to seeing the updated 3D model and soon after the finished product!

Re: Next generation rubber CPS homemade water gun planning

If you are going to use the pump I found, Use a LIPO pack to power it. You'll save a ton of weight and you would get more power out of it than if you were to use lead acid.

When are you going to try it? Do you have any existing homemades that you could modify & test?

Re: *PROPER* LRT expansion.

There is only one way to find out of this works - trial and error! Good pickup on how it's actually thinner in the little bulb. Any idea how these bladders are manufactured? It would be nice to get in on that game. But if not, well, possibly colossus would work. Go ahead and try. I believe they are...

*PROPER* LRT expansion.

Ever since I got my CPS 2000 and installed some LRT in it, it works pretty good, But it could be better. I've noticed that almost ALL stock cylinderical bladders look like this: cpsmechanism.jpg See that bulbous section near the forward end? That section is thinner than the rest of the bladder so it...

That's an interesting bladder there, it's got some kind of mesh texture. Usually they are smooth.

Possible source for electric water pumps for future electric homemade soakers

For some weird reason I've been wanting to build an ELECTRIC homemade and I think I found a pump for the task. I was on youtube when I found these Brushless DC pumps. http://www.ebay.com/itm/24V-Micro-Hot-Water-Circulation-Pump-Brushless-50C-2480S-8M-2400LPH-Submersible/301886520167?rt=nc&_soffi...

I was thinking of using it as an alternative K-mod method for spherical bladders but I'm not sure if it has enough elasticity.

Re: CPS 1000 Firing Valve

Hmmm. The only method I've seen is to cut it open and then use JB weld or some marine epoxy to glue it back together. You might be able to use a heat gun but it might compromise the structural integrity of the valve.

Re: fixing a broken 1500

Are you talking about the pin that the firing lever pivots around? If so you need to lubricate it so you can get the firing valve off. If you want to join my Water Warfare Discord channel you can join so I can help you more here: https://discord.gg/RpS44

Re: fixing a broken 1500

Well either the orange nozzle cap is press fitted or glued so your'e gonna have to pry that off, also the pump cap should either screw off or be also press fitted. Once you open it up and take pictures I may be able to help you.

Re: Total Fail Monster X (2000)...

You might have a bad pump check valve. Sometimes debris can get into the check valves and prevent them from seating properly. The check valve springs can also be deteriorating/corroding, allowing big pieces of rusted steel to get into the valves. Or the springs have just lost their strength so they ...
