Bunnings barrel set up..

Unread postAuthor: speedballs » Thu Mar 07, 2013 11:24 pm

Have noticed many Aussies have trouble finding suitable 6mm barrel materials ( short of iffy import ) My set up is an inexpensive "easton" jazz (maker of all things puality aluminium like) arrow blank or arrow with tip and tail cut off. $10.00 each or less for x10. I walk around bunnings (local multi national hardware store) looking for "stuff" With my evil eye I did spy...reffer to pics. The arrow blank Fits super tight in air fitting, I always give a rough sand helps slips in better plus helps with epoxy. I didn't want to use Carbon fiber as the inside of most looked undressed and grippy.. found heaps of places selling 6mm chromies also (balls) whole set up under $20 nit including epoxy.. I have 2 tins :)plus my new balls available most parts of oz not all.

Nice work on the barrel, I'll make a trip down to the LGS and see if the Als have gone down from $12.

Jack, c'mon. I reckon they're dickheads too, but I prefer them to the idiotic whaling arrangement that the Japs have going. Didn't hear much of an outcry when they came into our waters uninvited.

Sufer dude slash anti fuked up crap! and all round fishy friend, anyone giving them a hard time is OK by me. Whaling fleet is being sustained by money set aside for Japan tsunami aid. Totally unsastainable and totally mutha..... inhuman. A rant from "Ichi ban bukka henti" #1 stupid deviate ;)
P.s. the gnome is a representation of me.. he will feature heavily in most of my builds.. each to thier own may I also add :)
