    Post  AbyssHD Fri Jan 13, 2012 3:37 am

    Is 20W to high for a hot glue gun?(In Nerf Mods) Would it be better just getting a 10W as I'm probably only gonna make Heavies and use it/hot glue gun on mods.


    Thankyou,
    Your answers are appreciated.

    Hey guys got a 3/4" Ball valve and worked fine besides the fact it occaisionally got jammed and required alot of effort to fix, so I thought lubing it up would help, Gave to my uncle (still in Brisbane) and he sprayed 3 in one silicone spray on it, Didnt do too well and made it more rigid.

    I tried to wash it off with water and after that it was stuck, literally no one in my faily was able to turn it including the strong blokes, I realised I had nothing to lose so my uncle put engine oil around the handle, helped a tiny bit then froze again.

    Any ideas?

    I've got a some sheets of 0.6mm X 300mm X 300mm aluminium (roughly cut with a grinder) laying around and was wondering if anyone on here had any interest in buying some of it? and if so, what would be a fair price point?

    I'd be fairly keen mate, will just need to do a quick conversion from mm to thou and I should be right. Does it bend fairly easily?

    I believe so, I haven't used it any on my own blasters yet (i'm a noob and still figuring out exactly what i'm going to do to them before i open them up), i got it for a Tafe project where i was making boxes - i was able to cut it with standard scissors and bend it by hand with a ruler.

    I can ship but from what i paid for the big sheet the squares came from you'll probably pay more in postage than what it's worth (a sheet is about 170g and a quick check on the Australia post website from QLD to Melbourne is about $5)

    Yep, put me down for a couple of sheets then. Obviously, I'll need it to be posted as well, so let me know if that's an issue.

    If it's all good, send me a price and payment details to:

    or just message me on BNG.

    Ok I left the ball valve it in hot water for like 30 minutes then quickly dumped it into iced water, I did this a few times then after some solid effort I turned the handle as hard as I could then something clicked and done it was fixed.

    Everything worked fine although it was a little hard to turn after about 30 turns something clicked again and now its very easy to turn but if I turn it too slow it gets stuck VERY ANNOYING.

    Any ideas? I think something insde is blocking it however I cant really do anything without
    opening it up but thats not exactly possible with a ball valve without dremeling it open at which point it wont fit back together

    I've seen people running around with singled BBUMB's, with a barrel that accepts clips. How does this work / how do I make one?

    Think two lengths of tubing, one inside of another, with a slot cut out of the larger one for the clip to go in. The inner tube is slid forward allowing a dart to push against the larger tube, then it's slid backwards to chamber the dart.

    So...

    [Black] Outer pipe
    [Red] Inner pipe
    [Space] Area where clip is pushed into

    The Questions Thread. Confus11

    But wouldn't the dart just be pushed into the outside of the inner pipe?

    Or is there another hole cut in the inner pipe and it is just slid forward for seal?

    (If someone could post a .gif that would be awesome )

    Ok, you guys will all think of me as a 'noob' but moving on...

    My Nitefinder's plunger has had something go out of place and screwed up. I was recently following this guide on the new spring and reinforcement, http://www.oznerf.com/t2490-covers-everything-nitefinder-mod. And I lost my catch spring, then replaced it, added the new c836, lubed the new seal and cut another coil off! (But this was needed or else the catch wouldn't fit properly)Anywho I've hot glued the plunger head and cut down an anti- slip pad and adjusted everything. I removed the Ar's another time but not like how he has done it and i'm waiting to couple it in a few weeks. MAIN POINT: When pulling back the plunger it doesn't cock and it can't pulled back the whole way.
    Thanks for the help.

    You cut a coil off the catch spring?

    You'll need to cut 2? (from memory it was two, might have been three) coils off the C836 otherwise it won't be able to compress enough to catch.

    When you pull back the on the cocking mechanism, it compasses the spring. You need to take enough coils off the spring, or all the metal will compress against itself. And I bet your not strong enough to squish metal

    I have an issue with my magstrike, I ar'ed the clip, rubber banded the bladder, plugged the pump, lock removal and re-lubed it. Now the ranges are worse and the clip is loose. Any help?

    Post  Bacara Tue Jan 17, 2012 8:13 pm

    I'd personally take the bands off the bladder, it may not be what's causing the problem, but in all honesty it's not really necessary.
    You're loose clip could be related to the trigger lock removal, so maybe try putting it back in. Ensure the piston and the plate that pushes on the clip are positioned correctly, if you widened the holes when removing the AR's, it may have caused the seal between the clip and the mechanism to become non-existent (not that it was very good to begin with).
    Also, plugging the pump isn't necessary as the main OPV preventing you from putting air into the blaster is actually on the back of the bladder, cutting this orange pin to half it's original size and dremelling out the shell where the bladder sits will allow for roughly 2 full clips to be comfortably fired.
    Also, not meaning to sound dickish, but pictures would help a lot in this case.

    I would use a washer and screw, however, Snap Carbines don't use rods, so there's not much room for mechanical bonding, unfortunately.

    Post  AbyssHD Wed Jan 18, 2012 4:11 am

    Overview: Cocking Problems;

    My Nitefinder has been lubed,a new o-ring, Teflon Taped, C836 (3 coils cut off for it to fit), Hotglued/Reinforced plunger head, anti-slip pad on plunger head and ar's removed. Barrel Taped back together.
    Anyway......
    When I try to cock the gun it is very hard to pull back. (Doesn't cock)I would like suggestive answers for this to be fixed, please.
    Thanks for your answers ('IF' they are helpful)

    PS: And I also now need a replacement for a catch spring recommend a good pen?
