to find the best prices on pvc in your area:

look in the phone book under plastic

look for a plastic manufacturer

call em all up, find out who makes the cheapest pvc pipe and ask where they distribute it too, or ask to buy direct (most factories wont do this but its worth a shot)

we have gas prices good here in the US, it is much higher over in places like europe, its about the same price for a liter as it is per gallon there, so your paying almost 4 times as much over there, if I remember right. I know its alot more there then in the US

i have to buy from bunnings aswell and there bloody expensive as all hell i tried to by from reeces but they asked to many questions and when i told them what i was makeing they wouldnt sell me anything cause they said if i was caught they would be liable and might get sued i tried a privetely owned company and it was about half the price but i have to travel to far and i dont own a car so i have to use public transport but i find bunnings helpfull cause you can tell them what you need and what it is for and they will just get it and sell it to you but luckily for me i just got a 200 dollar gift card off my uncle and aunty so il be using that there and also do you know where you can get sprinkler valves for pneumatics cause at my local bunnings they dont stock them thats is at chrinside park in the yarra valley which is in victoria

The only thing i would buy at bunnings is the pipe for the chamber and the barrel. Dont try and buy fittings there, they dont have any, and there bloody expensive. :evil:

Does anyone know where to get a shrader valve? I tried a BIKE SHOP and even they didnt have any.

my last pneumatic cost me $200 dollars with the parts mostly from bunnings.

In australia we have class 9,12 and 18 pipe instead of the schedule that america and europe has, class 18 being the highest pressure rated.

I bought 1 metre of PVC class 18 pipe costing me $30 from a reticulation supplier, absolutely unbelievable that some of you post awesome looking cannons saying they only cost 50-60 bucks.
