0 string 5 rubber gasket left as of post #2
Only available until the 18th July
These are left over from the Full Member buy and are available for a week.
We have 6 fantastic fire pistons up for grabs, these retail for about £60 usually but this is the start of some group buys that we're organising for the full members.
The fire piston operates on the same principle as a diesel engine. When air molecules are rapidly compressed within the cylinder, the temperature of the air becomes hot enough to cause combustion.
We have two types -
A string gasket is the traditional method for achieving an air tight piston seal. This method is very effective, however the gasket does require occasional lubrication with Vaseline to maintain top performance. With extended use the gasket will eventually wear and need to be replaced. Its takes about five minutes to re-wrap a worn string gasket and restore original performance.
Rubber O rings are well known for their sealing ability and they perform very well in fire pistons. While not traditional, they are easier to replace than a string gasket and require less frequent lubrication. Because O rings seal more effectively than string gaskets it is not possible to fully insert the piston after use due to trapped air. Pistons with O ring seals tend to pop out of the cylinder a short distance.
Both work exceptionally well ( I know because i've used them and they're great )and have spare gaskets in the package - we have 1 string and 5 rubber ring on offer.
All fire pistons come with spare gasket & good quality char cloth for immediate use
