2inch hose end cut at rubber then weld a 2 inch extention pipe to it preferable overlap and make that weld strong. Now find a tapperd rubber nossel and dbl hose clamp it to the 2inch extention, then in the fatest or dbl wall part of the 2 inch and overlapped steel tube drill in an air fitting I think 1/2 inch then weld a half inch tube of steel to that hole and tap in the air fitting to match the compressor fitting. Forgot the air shut of valve also .
Hmm I would go to your local ready mix company and ask where to buy one. Homeade shot nossels can blow up big time.

Sorry for dumb reply, your local pump company or ready mix could either put you onto that info or lend it out, as we do.

journey did you ever find a way to make a homemade shotcrete gun? I am from Canada but live in Thailand and there is no suppliers here for this equipment.

Blascrete makes shotcrete equipment and has a representative in Asia.
Having needed equipment in the US as well as in Singapore, Malaysia, China, etc. I would reccomend them highly.
www.blastcrete.com
I have seen home-made equipment but the effort is not worth it. Get a real machine.
