They let me have that 8"!

Unread postAuthor: noname » Fri Jun 30, 2006 6:27 pm

Some lady just came to my house 5 minutes ago and told me that I could have that stick of 8" pipe! Now all I have to do is get two end caps. I'll post pics soon.

Note: "stick" =16 foot length

rofl nice.... no disrespect noname but why do i think that theres no way any credible construction company would let you have a piece of 16 foot long 8 inch pvc pipe? You realize that piece of pipe is probably like over 500 dollars... I highly doubt they would also send someone to your house to tell you you could have it. The person that would be sent to your house would most likely be someone who was being payed, and they wouldnt send someone to your house while on the clock. All facts considered i think your lying.

What's the point of 8" PVC when you could just get a 4" Chamber for about 1/4 of the price for fittings plus the pipe.

Definetely not over 500 dollars. First of all, pipe costs sooo much less than fittings. Also, construction companies get their supplies for waaaaayy les than it would cost somebody at Home Depot. But ya, the lady coming to your house saying you could have it is pretty fishy...

Who in the hell says he needs to buy reducers and such? Just buy 1 endcap and make a basket ball cannon or something. Put screws in the side to act as a stop. Ive always wanted to make a large bore cannon. I dont know, just the shear rush of energy is enough to equal 6 of those energy drinks that those emo kids drink. Good thing is you dont get fat!

Oh oops I forgot the pics in that other one. :lol: Milhrad, why do you think I'm lying about it? I wouldn't be lying over something so cool. I'm just going to go buy some end caps and tap a nipple in for a valve. And right next to my house they just tore down a high school and the company people said I could have it. And yes, some lady actually did come up to my house to tell me.
