EvilKenevil posted a topic in LEGO Technic and Model TeamHello, I have been recently wondering "How can I make fast air with my pneumatic pumps" I have built a fully functioning, belt driven system which turns the pump at a hell of a speed already, it can go even faster by adding a smaller pulley, but I didn't incase the pump got caught up and snapped. I was filling my air tank up with it, the pressure got so good the pipe popped off the air tank, it filled within 3 seconds, with a small grey pump. I have produced this setup out of a powerful RC motor and meccano and a thick belt and 2 pulleys. I had drilled a hole into a flat circul and attached it to a shaft as an offset gear which drives the pump. If anyones interested, I will take a picture.
