For the Canuks looking for items similar to what DYI imported.

COSSD = Canadian Oilfield Service & Supply Directory

This is my bible.

Any thing you can imagine and a whole lot more. Most of these businesses do sell over the phone. Call them up, pay with visa and they will ship it to your door. Without customs fees.

Canadians should also consider Princess Auto. It's in your backyard people, don't ignore it.

Ah Rag, was wondering where you'd scarpered off to :) I'm off to Spain myself in mid-May for work, I'll be there for the better part of 6 months - and that's a long time to be away from spudding, at least I'll have you guys :)

Oh, how sweet :D

Speaking of Spain, a childhood friend of mine that I hadn't seen for 6 or 7 years just established contact with me out of the blue, turns out she's living in Valencia (Spain) :lol:

ITWOST,

My 1000 .2g black BB's arrived so I can do some accuracy shots with my co-ax, the barrel is a bit bent to the top right, but I can fix that later:

Seriously, I had never been abroad alone for so long and spudfiles was one of the things that kept me sane until I started making friends and having alcohol fuelled allnighters :D

This time round it's going to be different though, I'll be with at least three other colleagues in a countryside chalet complete with pool, we should have a rental car available too :D really looking forward to it, 'course I'll miss home but better to be doing low-level work and training than to be responsible for a lot more at the local firm.

ITWOST, I just discovered what may be the ultimate Canadian spudding supply, and it isn't COSSD (which is completely useless for most purposes). Unfortunately for the rest of you, you're going to have to find it yourselves. It makes McMaster's plumbing supply selection look like your local Home Depot.

Also, I got everything ready for another two or three shots tomorrow, which will likely consist of two range shots, and possibly a rather impressive damage shot to cap off the video I'm making.

Why does the rest of us have to find this Canadian spudding supply for ourselves? (Not that it affects me, since I'm in the States and I have plenty of spudding resources).

Because if I told you, and everyone looked at it, they might get an idea of what [redacted] is. And at this stage, you'll have to be more creative than that to discover the secret :wink:

Do you? :wink:

It must be nice living in the U.S., being able to order from McMaster without being gouged by customs, who add roughly 10 random, bullsh*t charges to the bills...

Well id say it is nice considering mcmaster warehouse is 40 minuets away from my house. :lol:

But i am going to have my current order shipped, because its small parts. I was going to buy a 5ft section of 4" pipe from mcmaster, which was 23 dollars, but then i went to homedepot and saw 10ft section of 4" pipe for 13 dollars!! So i just went for the better deal, as anyone would do.

In the world of spuds today:

I finally finished a 70 inch blank with a rate of twist of 1 in 14.
I also did some sanding for my 2 inch pre-charged cartridge prototype.
If anybody needs PVC dust let me know, I’ve got plenty…

Also, a reminder: I’m still waiting for some orders for rifled barrels; if anybody wants one check my last post HERE.

I do... at least, I have a theory or two. Not that I've invested too much time in them, because no doubt I'm missing pieces of the puzzle, and I've got lots of other things to do.

But I have no doubt that it will be exceptionally powerful, and also large, noisy, and something I couldn't possibly build, use or store for probably at least three reasons.
