    Hi,

    Let me first thank you for a wonderful and useful post I am sure this gonna help a lot of amateur photographers.

    Coming to the point of the topic I have read both your http://www.martyncurrey.com and http://www.dropcontroller.com because I want to go through each line that helped you to develop the product.

    Now I am all set to start it. It would be helpful if you can provide link of each item which you actually used in the project. This will help us to choose the best. I see in your post that you have used lot Salenoid valve and then settled for a particular china make a clone of Shako.

    If you can please help us with link of each item you buy for this project( Updated Version)

    Thanks in advance

    Unfortunately I don’t have a list of recommended suppliers. I buy most of my electronics from the local electronic markets or Taobao (I live in Hong Kong and some of the time work in China). Taobao is like a Chinese ebay but difficult to use if you are not local and do not understand Chinese. Almost everything listed on Taobao is also on ebay though.

    This should get you started.

    The shop I got the Chinese valves from is no longer there but similar valves can be found at:

    https://world.taobao.com/item/520288996006.htm

    https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=520376361352

    https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=18720652339

    https://item.taobao.com/item.htm?&id=17665788738

    or search for for PU220AR-02 and look at the cheaper valves.
    Remember to double check the voltage required.

    Nozzles:

    and remember to check the screw size.

    Many thanks martin your post really helps. Just wanted to ask you how is Airtac valve you have written in post this are similar in performance with Shako I am asking because Airtac is available in aliexpress but Since you havent used in your project so I am thinking not to go for it

    I found the Airtak to be very similar to the Shako and do use them when doing multi-valve setups. They do seem to be a little slower than then no brand valves though they are very good for drops 20ms+.

    Another to look for is the Chuka. I haven’t actually used these but they good reviews elsewhere.

    Hi Martyn,

    Many thanks I look for Chuka too atleast one I can buy but getting Shako clone is becoming a hurdle for me. By any chance can you help me on this

    Unfortunately I don’t have the facility. All I can suggest is one of the taobao helper sites. These will help you buy from taobao for a commission. I don’t have any recommendations but Google will help.

    I have thought about putting together kits but then the cost would need to include carriage, time, etc and it quickly becomes expensive which defeats the main reason for the project, keep the costs down.

    Hi Martyn,

    I understand Mostly I see I have to use aliexpress but problem is in aliexpress I am not getting the valve at-least the master valve should be of good quality. So just a thought in case you are putting all the elements of the project how much does the cost comes with the cheapest shipping available with tracking

    You may be over thinking it. Shako, Airtak, Chuka are all good valves and any or any combination of them would work well.
