hey what's up? i heard my name mentioned, thought i should make an appearance :biggrin:

they sell shockwave lookalikes on ebay.

but if you wanna save $$ and make your own go to lowes in the specialty fastener drawer. They have little rubber grommetts that look just like double convaluted bags. then get some little washers in the same aisle. for a tank they have a "metal spacer" that looks like an airtank without the ends it's 1" long. then just glue some styrene to the ends and sand it round with a dremel then drill a hole through it. Then get some braided line for your airline

Nothing beats real metal tank and real rubber bags! :thumbsup:

for a tank wouldnt a battery work? since im really cheap :biggrin:
yea, but a battery is a bit to long, looks more like a nirtogen or scuba tank setup, the spacer is the perfect length and i can post pics of my finished one if you want(i painted it to match)

what are those shockwave lookalikes called and how much are they?
:dunno:[/b][/quote]
Here's what they look like, they have them on ebay for like 6-7$
But for less than that you can make 4 bags and a tank.
