Micro Pressurized CO2 Setup
Spent waaay too much time doing this the last couple of days but some
interesting equipment is available from the paintball crowd. Here's what
The CO2 tanks are widely available in a variety of sizes from 3-4oz up to a
couple of pounds to meet space constraints. Tank prices are $15 and up.
There are low pressure regulators which supply under a 100lbs to drive the
autococking mechanisms; approximately $45 and up. These include blowout
protectors in some cases e.g. the Rock from Palmer. The tank connections
are pinvalve equipped and easy to connect safely.
Following these with a needle valve (possibly RC aircraft) should make for a
compact inexpensive system.
Reloading can be done by yourself from a siphon tank and reloader in the
garage or just go down to any paintball place and get a reload for $5.
Nice hoses and connectors in all sorts of sizes.
I'm going to give it a go.
