Homemade nozzle laminator

I decided to detail the construction of this Laminator.
Strongly inspired by the CPS 2000's nozzle construction, the laminator consists of a simple but effective combination parts:
-3/4" to1/2" threaded reducer (x2)
-3/4" threaded PVC sleeve
-Screen mesh (x2) (I found those in my house along with spare sink parts, so they should be available in hardware stores)
First you put the screens in the reducers like this. (they fit perfectly)
Then you pout the sleeve along with eight straws. You must cut the straws so that they are just long enough to fit perfectly. Add the final reducer.
The finished product.
That's it! Thick laminated streams for any homemade project or nozzle mod.
Note: This laminator is only working with large streams. End caps drilled too small are most of the time not very effective or will shoot strangely.
The laminator in action:
^ Endcap drilled to 7/32". Probably the best nozzle size to use for a good combination of range,output and shot time.
^ Endcap drilled to 5/16".
^ No endcap. As you can see the powerpak can't supply enough water flow to power such a large stream.....
.....But that's not the case of the flash flood. ;)
