NEW EDIT FROM 2020 .. The pictures from above that are missing are further down in the post!!
That, I would say, is an improvement. Much easier to direct the stream into the skull and keep your hands and face away from the business end and flying debris.
I like That!!
Sure would like to see that in seperate parts. Cool design, may have to build one like that, though the one I already have does a great job. That one does look just a little more user-friendly.
I like the looks of that! I bet it still causes a mess though. LOL
LOL. Just the sound of brain blaster sounds messy.
The beauty of it is that there are only 3 parts - the hose nozzle, the brass fitting, and the copper tube. That brass fitting is all one assembly, I found it in the plumbing department at Lowe's. It is called a "female hose to compression adapter", for $4.43 It screws right onto the hose nozzle (you obviously need one with a threaded end, I also found that at Lowe's), and accepts 1/4" copper tubing. Pretty sweet!
Is there a certain sprayer that these pieces will fit with?
As the designer of the "Original Brainblaster", I would say that yours is one heck of an improvement over mine! I'm gonna look for that fitting next time I'm in Lowe's.
Thanks for sharing!
This is what i use:
Then i take newspaper and rap it in a cone shape, put the nose of the skull down toward bottom of the cone shape. Then stick the end of the blow gun in the cavity and rap the end of the cone around the gun and pull the trigger! It only takes about 50 PSI to clean two raccoon skulls.
For those of you that haven't seen how well a brainblaster does work, I put a video on youtube awhile back.
The hose nozzle I have is a "Gilmour" brand, but I have seen others that would work, as long as there are male hose threads on the end of the nozzle. Here is the nozzle, the rubber nozzle tip comes off:
Joey, you definitely get credit for the invention! I just got lucky when I ran across that fitting.
Chasintail, I've seen your video before, that's a slick setup for sure. What is that valve handle off of? A pesticide spayer?
Andy, do you use air to blast brains then? Or do you run water through that?
Its an air gun nozzle I picked up at walmart. Used in like a woodshop or autoshop with an air compressor.
I like the new idea. It simplifies my variation of the design!
Don't you need 5 peices?
5? I guess if you disassembled everything, you would end up with more than 5 pieces. But I was meaning 3 purchased parts. The hose nozzle, the brass fitting, and the copper tube. Everything between the hose nozzle and copper tube is one purchased assembly, and is called a "female hose to compression adapter", or "3/4 FHT x 1/4 compression adapter", or something to that effect.
Ya i use air I live up north i cant always run water outside so the air in my shop is a better less temperature controlled way.
This is what it showed me when I went online. This is why I was thinking it would be 5 pieces. Cool thanks.
That looks great, and cheaper than the original I may have to build a new one.
Joeym check this out - http://www.dermestidbeetlecolonies.com/ you should have patented your idea!
I use air as well I don't have pressurized water outside yet :'(
Test to see if this can be brought back. It can but it also broke the images that could be seen on the old forum. My PC saved them in the cache so here they are.
