Parts in Australia

Unread postAuthor: jmadden91 » Thu May 07, 2009 6:10 pm

Hey anybody from Australia know of any online stores for pressure PVC fittings? Tradelink and Reece are charging me $35 au just for a 100mm x 50mm reducer! Also does anyone know of any stores were i can pick up an electronic BBQ ignition? Or wants to sell me one on ebay?

Cheers Guys,

As for PVC supplies you're probably best off to try a local irrigation/agricultural supply. We pay more than the Americans..but oh well.

As for the BBQ lighter try a camping store that sells portable barbecues.

bunnings sells bbq ignitors. and watershed sells bushings for about that same price you got. its bloody expensive. 65 bucks for a 90mm T !
or if you have enough skill you can make an ignitor from a disposable camera :wink:

Gday mate, i sugest getting to know the guys at a local irrigation store (not any big ones like total eden). I can go into my local one and get anything at cost from him, and they are much cheaper then reece or tradelink anyway.

on the camera, its not that hard, take the battery out, take the camera apart, cut the wires to the flash, strip them enough to wrap around your contacts, put the camera back together, battery back in and your good

i think ill have to try to do that cause the big ones are charging me a fortune. Haha i have to come up with a new excuse every time they ask what is it for haha i usually end up telling them its for a spud gun anyway. Do you know if we sell those cleanout caps the americans use here is aus?

Camera caps' will arc but damage the electrodes. An ignition coil is a very good antidote to this.

Yes, bunnings should sell electronic sparkers, I've seen them in there before.
