Good Deals Thread

Unread postAuthor: clemsonguy1125 » Wed Aug 11, 2010 8:01 pm

I keep seeing good deals on ebay for cheap parts that would be great for spud guns but not the kind I build. I figured it would be a good idea to start a thread for these links instead of separate threads for for each links. So this is for anyone to post good deals they find on spud guns related items. EX-Shock Pump, QEV, Stun Gun, Clear PVC. Any thing commonly used for spud guns.
Rules-
-Keep it related, try not to go off topic too much
-Try to post links to safe websites. Ebay or Amazon are good
-If using ebay wait until theres a day or two left not a weeks when the starting bid is 1 cent, Buy It Now is good too.
-Post what country you are in your post with the link
-Don't post net shops in general, those go here
If anybody else has suggestions for rules Ill update the list.

Edit, sticked by jrrdw.

In addition Surplus Center has great deals on all sorts of brass pipe fittings and air cylinders. As far as I know they ship only to the US.

Are we allowed to post links to the homepage of a good netshop?
Could be useful to have some cheap part suppliers on the site.

I also suggest you write witch country the shop is based in so we don't have to browse everything to see if there are one in our country.

The "netshops" should go on the usefull links page (if I could find it :x ). I think it would be a good idea to list what country it's in.

Spudfarm-I agree it could be useful, and since I couldnt locate the useful links page they can be posted here until it is located again
jrrdw-I agree, I added it to the rules

Be aware that these bottles have a 15 year service life..and that's it. Afterwards, you will not find anyone that will fill them.

They also require hydrotesting every five years.

Good tanks with a couple years left on them go for upwards of $150 locally....if these were worth money do you think the fire department would have thrown them away?

Caveat emptor :wink:

If they have to throw them away after 15 years they do so... even if they are in good condition... It might not be a good idea to use 4500 psi with them but 800-1200 psi should be ok

I think that is a relatively common price for a paintball regulator. The expensive ones are the Low Pressure Regulators (LPRs) that regulate down to lower pressures.
