Thanks to Steveoh for enlightening me. As a result, I've set up a store at As soon as the logo is approved, and I pick the things we can buy reasonably, Steveoh will set up the Guild Mall with a link to the right store at CafePress.

They have caps, shirts, Ts, and even thong underwear replete with the Guild Logo! At present, only the three color logo will be available, but once we get approved, I'll add the B&W one too.

You can thank Steveoh!
Ask Bob / Re: Internal threading Strength Requirements
« Last post by rsterne on April 24, 2018, 07:08:54 AM »
The standard threading used on an MRod tube, which is 1.125" x 20 TPI should be fine, using a 1/2" thread engagement.... The threads are large enough at the root to have to bore the end of the tube slightly (about 0.004" per wall), and yet leave sufficient material above the top of the threads in the tube wall to resist the axial loads of the end plug.... You could also use 24 TPI, but you would have to bore the tube ID out more, so no advantage.... and the minimum diameter of the female threads in the tube would be less than the tube ID (without boring) if you used 16 TPI, so that is not as good....

Using 1.125" OD threads, at 4,500 psi, the minimum safety factor for the installation is for the remaining tube wall, and that is 5.5:1.... This requires that the O-ring that seals the plug be INBOARD of the threaded portion of tube, of course, so that the O-ring bears on the full thickness tube wall.... and the thinner portion of the thread root is not under pressure.... and hoop strength at that point is not an issue....

I have some 1.25" X .092" ti tube that I want to make into an HPA reservoir. I'm planing on 4300-4500 psi charge pressure and using 7075 alum as the threaded end plug. What is the thread pitch and length of thread needed for this project?
Thx, aerotulz

Poor rattus. Splat. :)
Hey, I just figured how to slo-mo these Rube-Tube vids. .25 speed really puts a new perspective on the hit.

Airgun Guild Forum Announcements / Banned IP Addresses
« Last post by steveoh on April 22, 2018, 04:29:16 PM »

We've been getting hammered by a variety of bots that are indexing and re-indexing the forum. Some of these bots are trying to get in, as I am seeing login failures from some of the bot addresses.

I've banned several hundred IP Addresses, and new bots keep popping up. In several cases I'm banning a fairly large range of ip addresses, and probably will have new ranges popping up. So, if posting seems to be a bit slow, chances are it's the bots. Can also be bots hitting us and causing the hosting provider to throttle us.

Anywho, I'm on it.

My latest video shows the .22 caliber wood version Semi Automatic Sortie pellet
