helpfull links thread

Unread postAuthor: trae08 » Sat Sep 01, 2007 4:45 pm

ok i dunno if y'all will like this or not but i think it is a good idea so here it is.

the way it is, is like this if you have a link with some useful spud gun making materials or info then post it here. post the link and what the link is for ( info or products) and what country its for.
try to keep your posts as short as possible like just the link an what its for so as to make it easy to find it in the post. or separate it from anything else you have to say.
if you have a post in this thread and a few days later you find another useful link then edit your post please dont make another one.

all forum rules apply and yea if this gets going good it should be stickied.



heres a link for metals:
Alloy
Aluminum
Brass
Bronze
Cast Iron
Copper
Stainless Steel
Steel
Tool Steel

Good idea however I much rather have this in the wiki vs here on the forum.

Please use this thread to collaborate about what to put in the wiki, but use the wiki to make it so it can be managed in a better way.

Also please remember the rules when posting.

This Thread is a great idea, good job... hopefully this will eliminate a few
useless noob topics that seem to find there way here

Heres my 2 cents worth:



Might be helpful for barrel sizing ect..

Actual Caliber in Millimeters


A Thesis PDF with a lot of info on gaseous Detonations ect..

Gaseous Detonations


Another Helpful page with more info on Gas Explosions

Gas Explosion Handbook


Another good site for metal pipe pressure ratings that i use

Link to Sch80 PVC fitting dimensions:

Note: these dimensions come from the same manufacturer but are very, very similar to fittings from other manufacturers.

Should we suggest links here or add them to our reply(url thing)?
Or Should this even be a thread then?

This thread is pretty old, but he meant to discuss what links should go into the Wiki in this thread. Though i'm pretty sure something else has pretty much taken this threads place in the Wiki, serves a similar purpose.
