i attemted to take the waterfowling world by storm with the must have portable, AND adjustable dog stand. and when i say adjustable, i dont mean 3-6 in. im talkin a little over a foot of adjustability. Well when it was finished, it wasent so portable and didnt adjust like i had expected. Long story short, after a BAD mornin that day, that thing ended up in the middle of the pond. Felt obligated to go and get it cause it took 2 days to make and about 30 bucks, so it now sits in the back yard and makes one hell of a table to pluck birds on! Im too ashamed of my major fail to post pics.

Bicycle pump. Only need to reach 60-70psi to get the distance and arc i need. They shoot about 25 -30 yards with a nice high arc.

Do you have a brand and model number for the sprinkler valve you are using? Please post that up if you can. Thanks :thumbsup:

The pneumatics are controlled remotely by passing a 9volt charge through the sprinkler valve, releasing the air. Here is a link to the sprinkler valve, you can pick them up at lowe's or home depot. Also, i forgot to list the pressure gauge and valve stem in the parts list above.

Here's a link to the remote control i purchased. I got the idea for this remote system from another thread but for the life of me i can't remember which site i was on. The circuit is pretty simple, i wired in the receiver with a nine volt battery and on/off toggle switch to help save on the battery life. The thing i like about the receiver with this setup is it has the click on/click off mode allowing the sprinkler valve to stay open longer than just a momentary open and close. This allows all the pressurized air to be expelled from the air chamber.

Learning curve. I built the shorter barrel one first. It still works fine but i wanted a longer barrel so the bumpers weren't resting against the bushing.

Love it!
Can we see a pic of the bumpers? & what do you use for the female in the bumper?
What level of pressure do you pump it up to?
Do you use a portable battery powered pump, bicycle manual pump or compresser pump? Any or all?
Looks like you can run six off the remote trasmitter.

I'll get a pic of the home made bumper tonight, but is just 3/4" pvc pipe cut to about 10" length with a water bottle cap cemented on 1 end, surrounded by foam and covered with canvas. So far i've just been using a manual bicycle pump but any pump will work. All the materials i used were rated for pressurized applications, i think the 2" pvc had the lowest pressure rating of 280psi. However the highest i have pumped them so far is 80psi. I get really good distance (25-40 yards) with the home made bumpers at 60-80psi, and have shot the heavy rubber retriever-r trainer dummies with it, still shoots them fine, just not as far due to the increased weight. You are correct about the transmitter running six seperate launchers.
