Air tanks availability

Postby Robert F. » Sat Jun 06, 2009 3:25 am

Hi all,

does anyone have any suggestions as to where I can obtain a small air storage tank for an RCABS-R system I am planning to build? I have read through the vendor list, but I might have overlooked it.

Or can anyone suggest a homemade solution?

Thanks,

Robert

what is small ?

btw, I believed that the tank was the WTC itself.

I have seen gas tanks being made from soldered copper tubing. but those are for
propel (liquid).
Regards,

Hi Ronald,

small as in "about 8 centimeters long, 3 to 4 centimeters diameter" .

No, the WTC being used as air supply is the RCABS system. I am talking about the RCABS-R (R for Reverse) system.

So, any suggestions?

You might check out Robart systems. They make air retract systems for planes. I remember their air tank to be about 1.5in x 4-5 inches.

The Robart tanks work great for these systems. The come in 4 different sizes if I remember right. BD.
