Sundays work for me, though I'm guessing the 19th or 26th would be better than next week to give us a chance to get our parts together. But I'm game regardless.
EDIT: Oh, it CANNOT be on the 12th: the second half of the The Walking Dead season premieres.
Just an update on the air cannon: I played around with it again this weekend and so long as I fired it one or two times in succession (even three or for times) but kept the PSI above 40 or so, I was able to keep it going without a problem. It was only after it dropped below 40 psi and the tank had to be recharged that it "failed."
To be honest, I still don't understand why the size of the solenoid would matter. You would think if it was a size issue it would "fail" from the get-go yet it works at the beginning. I'm willing to try the different size solenoid but I can't understand the mechanics why that should matter.
On another matter, I removed the regulator from my pancake compressor in an effort to see if an unrestricted air flow would have an effect, and after running to the store several times to get the parts I put it back together. I charged the tank up and went to connect my hose when I realized...I had no hose connector! The tank was just a completely closed loop! Duh.
Anyway, I gave up at that point, my little brain too exhausted to head back to the store to find the proper fittings. I'll save that for another day.
So let me know when the next M&T is and I'll be there.
