Can you at least put them in a ZIP folder? it'd take you probably half the time it would take one of us to download it, and then you could upload it directly to spudfiles as an attachment.

Any chance of getting a high pressure vessel machined, that can be filled with a shock pump???

To fit standard 1cm fittings (not sure of the thread size). Doesn't really matter what thread size as long as it's standard(so it fit's parts from Bunnings)

A reasonable price including shipping to NSW Australia would be much appreciated.

thanks jazzman

Just a few things, one of which may be useful to other readers;

1) Do not post in all caps. It's just plain obnoxious.
2) It was pretty clear you're only 15. I'm not all that much older, but a lot maturing happens in those few years.
3) There is a Spudfiles member map.

sorry..? just needed help.. someone referred me here.. I haven't been on spudfiles in a while.. what a warm welcome.. thanks for the info.. and P.S. I am NOT a just some rowdy teenager.. I have just been looking for a long time, and this seemed like a true opportunity.. I am far ahead of many people in my school, in science, and math, I am skilled with robotics, RC airplanes, that I build, and chemistry.. so please don't try to give me advice on maturing.. I know I can be immature at TIMES, I was just extremely excited, sorry for have a good time.

I live in usa, could somebody possibly make me a mold to make some lead castings to make some ammo?

If you can that would be great

can be made out of aluminum or what ever

the mold will be for 1/2 inch copper pipe and 1/2 inch pvc sch40
and possibly 3/4

You need to post a drawing showing all shapes, dimensions and tolerances for the projectile you want.

My point about providing information:

That's just an idea, like telling someone "I have a concept in my head, can you make it reality?"

You can approach companies with this, but they will charge you top dollar for it. To expect the same from individuals who are essentially "doing you a favour" is a bit much.

A dimensioned drawing of the projectile is the least you could provide.

1/2 inch copper pipe and for 1/2 inch pvc

The 1/2" diameters listed for copper and PVC pipes are nominal diameters (i.e., they're not actually 1/2" in diameter). Also, the diameter for copper and PVC changes depending on schedule, rating, manufacturer etc, so provide an exact diameter or you may end up with something that doesn't fit.

Edit: By the way, you could make a mold that simple from a piece of wood. You could even do what I have done in the past and hammered fishing sinkers in to a cylindrical shape to fit 3/4" copper pipe.
