    SNAP Springs

    Post  CobraNerf on Sun May 30, 2010 1:53 pm

    Ok, I'm making a SNAP a the moment with all Aussie materials, and I've got everything, except the spring. All the ones I have seen are too small.

    For anyone who doesn't know what a SNAP is, it's a homemade made my Carbon on Nerfhaven.http://nerfhaven.com/forums/index.php?showtopic=6232


    So, my question to you is if you have made a SNAP, what spring did you use or can you suggest one.

    P.S I will make a write-up when I'm done.

    Could you use two C-836 spring from bunnings in the snap?

    I am using 32mm PVC for the plunger tube, the same diameter as Carbon.

    Yes, I have thought of that but im just wondering if there's one spring so I dont have to mess around. But it looks like it's going to end up like that.

    On a side note, what is a SNAP??

    Do you have all the parts yet? If so how much did it all cost? I to will be making one. My bet is 2 C836 springs. Thats a lot of power, but it should be able to hold.

    If you need a custom spring or a place with nearly every spring possible checkout this joint.

    smallparts.com.au

    They sell just about every sized spring you can think of.

    That small parts website looks cool however I wasn't so impressed by the springs

    Unfortunately as the OD goes up, the diameter increases dramatically, which is not so good for nerf as we want med-large OD springs with smaller diameter wire (comparatively) - 3-4mm Wire diameter is not really usable in nerf

    If you mean the plunger rod/priming handle then I'm using a Aluminium rod.
    Look at the first post for a link for the original SNAP.

    I have all the parts except the springs, plunger rod, end cap and some washers.
    It all cost around $40-60 but i wasn't adding up. Some parts can be used again though.
    Also good on us for getting off our asses and actually making something.

    P.S. Finally a good thread with no shit! OMFG!

    Thats a lot cheaper than I was expecting. I give you kudos for being one of the first to attempt it. I should be to far behind!

    I thought that was a bit pricey but whatever. I should be able to start this weekend.
    Also how are you doing the barrell. The smallest 32mm reducing brush is 25mm so I'm gonna put a sanded down 20mm coupler in the brush and put 16mm Conduit nested in 20mm on as my barrell. Just wondering how you're doing it because getting that was one of the toughest things.

    I was thinking that, I use 20mm conduit couplers for everything. You sound like you have it down pat, so I think that sounds like the best way.

    Depends on what blaster, what modification has been done, and the difficulty of the modification. Get back to us on that, and we can answer.

    By the way, refering to the original intention of this thread, You can buy k26/k25 springs from split for like 3 dollars, and postage would be like 5 or something.

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but aren’t K26 only 2" long and the K25 are a mere 1 7/8"?

    I really don’t see why everyone raves on about these k26 being the "best springs"? Something like the K137 at 4” long and 0.105” WD would be what I would instantly go for.

    I'm not sure where you are getting your measurements, but split sells k26 springs at 11 inches long, with an OD of .844 inches. K26 can be cut down to fit in most plunger tubes, and they have a load of ~3.88 pounds per inch, well suited to nerf. K26s would be ideal for the long plunger tube of a snap, and considering that we don't get very long spring with suitable stiffness for nerf in Australia, a K26 would be the best option.
