Needle valve size

Postby Jbish » Tue Jan 15, 2019 8:05 am

Hi so I'm currently building a 3inch boka and just wondering what's a good size for the output tube before I go and buy the needle valve.1/4 inch 1/2 inch or 3/8 inch? Thanks

You’ll want it to be 1/4 “ so as not to get to much volume because it can cause smearing :handgestures-thumbupleft:
