Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

Just picked up an Ultimate Renegade (I've named this one Falafel) for 12 dollaroos.

Re: CHALLENGE: Need Gun w/ Small Stream/Nozzle but Rapid Re-Fill

Wal Mart should have them, the most expensive Gremlins (or their equivalent, they're all the same, just different names and colours) I've seen here were for $5, I got mine on clearance for $2. Just poke around Wal Mart/any big department store and you should find something.

Re: Gorgon K-mod questions

If you want to try what I did, make sure you build it in a way that allows you to take it apart, that's the best advice I can give. If you're putting the balloons on a hose barb, don't glue the hose barb on. Get a threaded one, screw it onto other bits of PVC (and those would be glued), just so you ...

Re: Advice on painting

Probably acrylic, and seal it with a matte varnish/sealant of any kind (even a thin layer of white glue can do a fantastic job sealing your paint).

Having said that, I paint miniatures, not water blasters.

Re: Hydrocannon

Update: Work on the pump will be delayed for a while, so I've shifted my focus to the PC. I've decided to risk trying an all-balloon PC again (having done so on my WW Lightning already, so far unsuccessfully). My reasoning is that repairs wouldn't be as difficult with the HC as they are with the Lig...

Re: Hands-On: Super Soaker 250

:o

I just tested a bunch of my soakers, one after the other. This includes Timmy, a 12k, 2700, Gorgon, and Tapey (my CPH, albeit not necessarily on her optimal nozzle). Timmy shot the furthest.

That'll be all.

Re: Cricket fixed - Gun at the bottom of the lake

I have a little less success in water wars because even the best pistol stand pretty much no chance against classic CPS gun
Unrelated, but I assure you I'm working on fixing that with a homemade :D

Re: Hydrocannon

Extending the pump stroke shouldn't be too difficult, a dremel along the sides would extend the groove that the track goes in, then a bit of snipping and filing along the bottom, then all that'd be left is finding a long enough pump for it (in my case, a WW Blazer happened to be sitting around). As ...

With that out of the way... Croc and I have recently embarked on two projects, one being the homemade pull valve , and the other being a big time HydroCannon mod. I found this HC thrown out on bulk garbage day so I grabbed it, it turns out there's a problem with the check valves. So, looking through...

Re: Gorgon K-mod questions

Yeah, equal number of balloons in each pressure chamber. I should warn you though, balloons require so much maintenance. The Lightning in that topic is non-functional right now, I'm pretty sure it's because one of the balloons got sucked into the internals, plus there's a leak that prevents it from ...

Fatalness, I was going to refer you to one of my threads on SSC, but I checked it out and you already posted there. Whatever, here it is anyway. The problem with the Gorgon is that it has two pressure chambers, so if you want to replace them, you need the two new PCs to be identical to one another (...

Re: iSoak'D 073: Finally Warm

I'm working at a construction job, rain gets scary when you have $300 worth of drywall in the back of the pickup.

Otherwise, I'm in love with rainy weather (in moderation). Everything looks more epic in rain, that's a fundamental law of nature.

Re: Latest Soaker / Water Blaster

Just found a Hydrocannon with the neighbours' garbage at work, so I stole it. Based on a 2 second inspection, I'll assume there's a crack somewhere after the PC but before the ball valve. Half the screws are missing, the other half eroded and rusted. Updates to come as I take a look at it.

Re: Hands-On: Super Soaker 250

It depends on what you want the blaster for I guess. If you're trying to compete with the range of a 2k, then you'd better be able to match it, but if you want to make the most of other qualities, I'm sure it's doable. One of the nice things about heavyweight air pressure blasters is that they can g...

Re: Help For A Noob???

The 3-4 is priming, done before you put any water in, it lets you eek out an extra bit of power from your blaster. The 10-12 is after you've loaded it and it's just the pumping of water into the pressure tank. If you do prime it, you probably won't quite get 10-12 full pumps, just do as many as the ...
