Where to buy material's..

Unread postAuthor: Stang_man67 » Fri Oct 27, 2006 9:33 am

I have looked and asked in every home depot, lowes and garden store around where i live. They do not carry what im looking for and they cannot order it...(or they refuse to order it).... Does anyone have any suggestions as to where to buy the materials online....Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Hahah, you mean McMaster-Carr. Yes, they are amazing. I get about half my materials from them.

Now, what exactly are you are looking for?

Id assume what your looking for is the typical sch 40 fittings and pipe to construct a cannon?

What you want to locate is a sprinkler, or building supply store[typically a locally owned chain]. These stores are typically geared for contractors and serious homeowners. The stores are generally tucked away in some industral park. Some are just plastic piping, while others will include lumber, welding supplies, gases, etc. There is surely such stores in your area, you just gotta search for em'. Search for 'SPRINKLER' in the Yellow pages.
