View Full Version : Air powered cleaner for Paintball guns and Computers.

OK so I was thinking. I go through a lot of compressed air tanks to clean my PC, my gear and whatever else. I wanted a way to still use air but be able to use a bulk tank of some sort. That is when I realized I could use my new Peg leg paintball Dummy CO2 cartridge.

SO here is the shopping list.

1 Dummy CO2 Cartridge
1 Air cleaner for PC equipment
1 On/Off ASA
2 Macro fittings (one for the on/off, one for the dummy CO2 cartridge)
3"-??" of Macro hose (mine is about 6" and is easy to hold the tank while working.
1 bulk air tank (CO2 any size or a HP HPA tank, LP would work, but you will get less pressure)

Here are the parts

First thing you need to do is take the air cleaner and make a hole in the bottom to accept the fitting from the dummy CO2 cartridge. Mine already had a small hole there so I used what I had handy to expand it, a pair of scissors, I just put the blade of the scissors in the hole and kept spinning it around until it removed enough material to let the fitting through.

Once that is done, put the macro fittings in the on/off and the dummy CO2 cartridge. Put the dummy CO2 in the air cleaner and close the top.

Screw the on/off to your bulk tank. Attach the Macro to the on/off and the dummy CO2 cartridge.

Turn on the air and clean away :)

Ha! That is sweet! You should make some more, get a patent, and mass produce them! Or just sell the idea to a major company!
