Re: Form 1 build material sourcing?

I'm just waiting on my stamp to order them. Hopefully I'll get it next week.

Re: Form 1 build material sourcing?

Yeah..I was afraid someone would say something to that effect. I was planning on running subs only, but after reading your input, I think I may opt for a bunch more Ti baffles and use the aluminum ones for the last few? not sure. The problem with such thin skirts on aluminum baffles (and not necess...

Re: Form 1 build material sourcing?

So, I'll probably get mine any day now. For my 50 cal can, I already made the mount using raw stock and parts I modified, along with the original brake on my rifle. I'm using 1.749 diameter formed freeze plugs for the baffle stack, and everything else is gonna be raw stock. You gotta post some pics...

Re: Form 1 build material sourcing?

Took a little over a month, even with me screwing up the paperwork twice, it was my first time, so I was shooting in the dark. I did end up ordering machined parts from diversified machine and solvent traps direct. Solvent traps direct has very quick shipping and I received cups in under a week, wh...

Re: Form 1 build material sourcing?

First, I got a question for you: how long did it take to get your stamp? I submitted mine a few weeks ago.

Look up solvent traps. I'm not a machinist either (unless you count poor man's machining), but I am a welder, so I'm sourcing a combination of almost finished parts and unfinished stock.

how does your mount maintain alignment?
I won't know for sure until I get the rest of the can built, but it sits pretty solid. No wobble or rotation so far.

I tried to "show" your photo, but it won't accept larger than 1600pixels height.

50 BMG QD mount

So, I haven't figured out how to upload photos yet, but I'll post them when I do. This is my first update thread! I'm currently designing a 50 BMG can for my rifle and I've settled on a Sionics MAC style can, or possibly extending the larger OD tube over the baffle stack to make it a flow through ca...

Re: Turbocharger baffles

Re: Turbocharger baffles

I made buffles as shown in my video. https://youtu.be/O-FHOPtOKp0 in fact, the gas flow rate on the turbine blades is close to subsonic because the silencer’s inside is a different gas environment than in the atmosphere and the speed of sound is different... I use such turbines only as an explosive...

Cyclops brake acme threads

Does any know what the acme thread pattern is on the AAC cyclops brake? Can the ratchet mount on the can be bought separately once I get my tax stamp? I've got a couple other options for mounting a form 1 with acme threads, but I think the Cyclops brake would be preferable if it's possible. Thanks!

Cyclops acme threads

I'm looking at using the Cyclops brake as a mount for a form 1. I don't know if AAC would be willing to sell me just the ratchet mount (I'll be asking as soon as I get a reply), so I was wondering does anyone know the acme thread pattern?

Re: MAC style can for 50 cal?

That's a large amount of volume so I don't see it not working. However, you don't need that overkill. Today's 50cal xans are much smaller than years past. A 2.5x16 would do fine. Maybe 5 baffles, progressively spaced, should do ya. Try to keep it under 2 kilos. Weight shouldn't be an issue as I'm a...

MAC style can for 50 cal?

So, I have a feeling I'm asking a stupid question cuz the design is outdated, but was brainstorming and thought MAC style with a larger diameter expansion chamber would be a good idea for my 50 cal. Of course I wouldn't use wipes, I'd use conical baffles in the smaller diameter tube, about 1.8" ID a...

Re: Turbocharger baffles

I might still use a turbine for the blast baffle, but right now I'm looking at 17-4. I'm considering MAC10 style design, with a larger diameter blast chamber at least 3" in diameter, and then using large stainless coned freeze plugs at least 1.75" diameter. There's a good possibility I'll abandon th...

Re: Turbocharger baffles

You can buy the solvent cones and cups for ~$20/ea. I'm not sure those turbines are going to be as cheap or that they'll perform any where near what you're envisioning, with or without holes drilled in them. I don't see those blades forcing the gas to the outer wall anymore than a cone feature or k...

Re: Turbocharger baffles

I don't see how you expect this to perform beyond the abilities of the base structure, being a radial baffle. As I'm sure you're aware, those fins would be rotated, at high rpm, to compress a gas and force it into a tunnel. This is exactly the opposite of what you're trying to accomplish with a sup...

It would be helpful if you post a link so everyone knows what you're looking at.

Regardless, I'm confident you'll be happier with the performance of conical baffles.

Re: Turbocharger baffles

I'm thinking it would be fairly easy to work them with hand tools and a drill press, and they're made of good steel, even the $30 ones. They'll at least work better than flat baffles like I was originally planning.
