Tough rubber for non serviceable piston

Unread postAuthor: Sticky_Tape » Sat Aug 02, 2008 1:42 pm

I need to know where to get really tough rubber that will still seal on a barrel (aka soft and strong) for a secret project (makes freaky background noise).

You can tell how awesome a cannon is by the pressure used.

Frank, McMaster has shipped international for a long time. The problem is they do not want to deal with regulations exporting to Canada, so they only allow Canadian orders from a select few long established customers.

Check around at your local dollar stores. Many things are made from various types of rubber.

Silicone cookware, drain plugs, tire patches, pencil erasers, craft cutting mats, some cutting boards, drain trays for dish racks, etc.
