well for starters there F**** simple to make, you can make them out of wood, plastic, bondo anuthing that can be shaped. Ive made one of wood before, was a half hole, and it worked great, just put some sides on it, and its done. Its very simple you shouldn't need to buy one, all ya should need to buy is the materials :P An the reason you cant get them in aussie, is because they have to be made, you cant walk into your local hardware store and say "do yu sell vortex blocks" they would be like :? LOl hope that helped buddy.

Have on a look on the How-to forum http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/how-to- ... s-f11.html there is one on there someone made one with PVC but it can simply be adapted to wood or something similare. Ill have a quick look to try and find it, but i'm pretty sure thereis one on there, have a look, and ill have a quick look myself.

EDIT: Found it - http://www.spudfiles.com/forums/inline- ... t5259.html

you can simply adapt that to wood, just fid the right size material for how ever big you cann is going to be.

Not many people like the old T style vortex block, because of how ugly it usually makes the gun.
That is a pretty good tutorial, however. Just cut the bottom off of it and the block is inline.
