Lack of qev's in Australia

Unread postAuthor: Mitchza89 » Sun Dec 07, 2008 5:35 am

Ok this is starting to sh!t me. I'm having absolute bugger all luck finding one of the cylinder style qev's (the same sort that BTB uses) I really hate the parker phram' style qev's aswell as the ones mcmaster sell but hey....If I have to get one of those, then I'll have to get one of those.

Any other Aussies have the same problem?

Yeah I'm after BSP. I'm into small bore (8mm usually) so a 3/8 or 1/2in should be fine.

Technobots do international shipping and are slightly less of a rip than the UKSGC shop. The owner is also very busy developing a new project so didn't have time to fill my recent order. Looks like spudding shops are taking a turn for the worse :(

Spudfiles isn't going down. It does have peaks and valleys of interest but it all averages out. I imagine the holidays are siphoning off some interest at the moment.

I have noticed somewhat of a drop in cannon postings lately. I wouldn't make much of it.

I'm planning to do a cannon in the next few weeks. Next chance won't be until Easter, because that's the next let up in my Uni schedule, so I want to take the chance.

Another thought... QEVs go by other names and the "QEV" nomenclature may simply not be used in Aussiland. It might be worth looking for "pulse" valves or "dust" valves. Those are (less popular) names for the same thing.
