Our new Paint Grenade machine

While I was in Japan I purchased a paint grenade machine from Tag Roland. I've been after this machine for a few yrs.

Today instead of playing paintball I decided to set up the machine for my Scuba tanks. So a trip to ACE Hardware and a little thread tape,new air guage and a few cresent wrench, I was in business.

I'm liking this larger tubing. I think we are going to use this stuff for two of the machines and the smaller stuff for the originol. I'm not positive yet, I still have to repair the other machine and see how it works out.

What I like most about the tubing, is that Iam still able to use the same clips I have used in the past I'll have to use larger BBs, but no biggy.

So here are some pictures of the new machine and the 120z paint grenades it makes. I plan on making a test batch tomorrow (15 April 2012).

I'll post more updates later this week.

Later,
Blackrain

Well I was going along great and then paint started shooting out of the paint cylinder. When I took it apart for cleaning, I noticed the wipers are worn. Can't keep the pressure correct. I'm just going to have to make new gaskets/wiper rings next week.

Then once I got it semi working, the 3 way decided it wanted to die as well. So off to the pneumatics store tomorrow and try to find one.

Not a very good day.
