Hello there

I am looking for a way to make custom sized piston tanks, I don't have access to a machine shop and I don;t have a lot of tools. So is there someone who can make them at a reasonnable price or show me how to ?

Thanks

I on the other hand have access to a machine shop and tons of tools, so how about those piston tank plans ? :D

Take a look in the Photo gallery section of this website, and you will find some excellent plans showing you how to build a decent piston tank. Lothar Mentz to thank for those.

Also, Norbert Bruggen gives a very detailed account of piston tank design and construction in his book, Model Submarine Technology, available from Traplet Publications.
