Nice. I look forward to the stories. By the looks of the current situation in my area (Edmond Oklahoma), there might be a few wars this season. But if it starts going like last year, it might become an all-out war. The thing is, it's hard to tell because we don't just use waterguns here. It's anyth...

Building my latest homemade was actually cheaper than buying any 2005 stock soaker! You must've bought real cheap parts, or already had some. My latest homemade costed me $50. I am earning some more, and am thinking about making a ground-breaking CAP homemade. Hopefully it will stay under $100. My ...

Really? I got some sch40 1/2" pipe that has a rating of 600 psi at 73 degress. I guess it's the joints that are the problem.

Has anyone drawn a diagram on how a CAP system works? I just need a basic drawing, none of the extra stuff. If I knew how they worked I might be able to design a pretty good one (and make it, of course).

Today and tomorrow (7/1 and 7/2) Target has 2 Vaporizers for $5 USD (that's $2.50 USD each!). They also have CPS 4100's for $29.99 each. This is in Oklahoma, in the metro area.
Go get some Vaporizers!

Well, regardless of what system you use, you aren't limited to pvc if you think about it. Take ridge sanding, for example. You can do that and position it anywhere along the pipe without cutting it. You can use it for support, or use it to create a second layer of pipe. You can modify pvc. You aren...

For all interested. please read my article on why I feel that CAP homemade water guns are superior to all other systems. I didn't completely understand the article, could you draw a picture or diagram? And if the tubing also expands lengthwise, how do the cylinder-shaped pressure chambers work in s...

I've got some money, I think I'll make a gun like that. But I have one question, where can I get latex rubber tubing? I'll use that technique to strengthen it too. I just got to get a design. EDIT: I drew a simple design. It looks real good, except for when the water exits the pc, it will have to c...

Of course, the problem with using tubing is that you'll need to devise a system to close off the other end. As well, definitely ensure that your home-made CPS-chamber is housed in a protective sheath of plastic just in case of rupture. Well, you could still you the same technique of sanding the rid...

Hi, I have made an APH, and started wondering why very few people had made a homemade cps gun. I looked at al the sizes of pvc, and with a little sanding to 1 pvc piece, you can mak a good cps chamber. It is mounted on 1" pvc (but could easily be changed to 3/4") and the pvc extends into the chambe...
