Re: Plastic Welding

Update: I've recently been experimenting with solvent welding as well. Particularly with ABS glue - mix Acetone and junk plastic parts, obviously in a well ventilated environment. Store in a glass jar with a tight lid. Add more plastic to increase its viscosity, and vice versa. It's an old and cost-...

Re: MOAB 2019

Looks like late May seems to be the best for the most people so far. I'd like to know sooner than later since I'm trying to plan a big game in May as well but want to do so as far in advance as possible so we can gather interest.

Re: MOAB 2019

As discussed over text, March 9 & 16 are booked for Rob and I. Not sure about after, but if he's available, we could both run a trip to NC and join Scott along the way, which could potentially save me an awful drive lol. (NC to MI is not something I want to do lol.) Late March and anytime in May wor...

Re: Plastic Welding

These are a bit like soldering irons that just operate at a lower temperature. Obviously make sure the area is very well ventilated. I wouldn't do this anywhere but outside especially without a robust filtration mask. But most of the time, I just go for the good ol putty/liquid epoxy methods. Use ho...

Re: Is Water Warriors Dead?

Not sure what's going on with the branding. WW is gone from the site but they've just updated the aesthetics of the Outlaw, and did a new small air pressure blaster for the Adventure Force line.

Re: Replacement screws for old Super Soakers

Use a flat end M2 screw instead of self-tapping, there's no need for unnecessary sharp hazards lol.

Any of the usual sources - Aliexpress, Banggood, Amazon, eBay, etc. should work fine.

Re: Favorite Firing Valve Design?

I want to try the Hydrocannon again sometime, as its design has some unique advantages.

Maintenance and reliability is a serious issue for all water blasters. Gaskets go bad over time and they can't be replaced easily enough.

Re: Soakemore 2018 planning thread

I might be able to do August 11th or something weird like that. Really gotta see how my second visit to the east coast this year goes.

Edit: Actually probably not that either. I don't know at this point.

Re: HBWW Downsizing!

Some updates and clarifications: - I can't ship most CPS at the moment due to lack of packaging/boxes. These are best done through wars. - I will get some boxes in early August or so that are able to fit them, but would prefer to ship them via war anyway. - War schedule is being worked on. If by som...

Re: HOG

The 21st might actually work for me as well. I'm going to see if I can stack up another big trip to the east coast and get this insanity to work. (I have a lot of nerf wars lined up and haven't done water wars in a long time!)

Edit: Doesn't look like I can, sorry.

Re: 2018 Water Warriors/BBT Blasters

They don't need any more participants and their battles are the most boring of all wargames. Have you seen/played tournament-style paintball though? :lol: They didn't even have any Super Soakers, let alone BBT or Stream Machine. There was some kind of generic brand that actually looked like pressur...

Re: Most important stat for gameplay

I have a wrench to throw in here: Effective range. Effective range is a combination of both the range in which the stream stays laminar, and the velocity of the stream. It's the area where dodging a stream becomes progressively more and more difficult, and is the range where hits are most difficult ...

Re: HBWW Downsizing!

Most likely the leaks are from the pull valves, cracks, and/or stuff like reservoir O-rings. I may slash the prices down since many of them don't look very repairable but I'll have to test first.

I'll have to ask Scott if there's any updates on Soakemore this year lol.
