Cheap materials

Unread postAuthor: Mr.Sandman » Tue Sep 02, 2008 7:38 pm

i have been searching for my dream store for a while but never did i think of one store: Big lots! they have some deals that ive never even thought possible! for example they sell packs of blowgun valves(3 a pack) for 2 DOLLARS!!!!!! and they have ptfe that was so irrresistable for 25 cents!!!! but the best part........ they have qevs for guess how much? 3 bucks a peice. they also have pretty cheap brakeline. and they have 50 dollar 5 gallon air compressors too and also for some odd reason they sell psi quages for 1 dollar???????? but enough about my discovery have any of you found cheap materials at unbeliveble prices?

Sounds good.....

Anyone living in Palo Alto, CA? I don't live in America, but I got a cousin studying in Stanford, will probably be going to visit him in December.

Went to their website, couldn't find nuts about what they were selling, so if anyone lives in the vicinity of Stanford U, please reply as to what they sell there. Planning to go get some stuff there that can't be gotten here.

Thanks.

Michael.

Welcome to Singapore.

The laws are stricter concerning spudguns than anywhere in the West.

Even the Aussies for all they complain have it good compared to us.
