    Mod party interest

    Post  Dylbot on Mon Oct 04, 2010 12:29 pm

    Hey everyone. I was wondering if there would be any interest in a mod party in Melbourne.
    Reign of Foam is approaching, and it would be a good opportunity for nerfers with less experience to learn new tips and tricks on modding their guns.
    Attending List:
    KingCam5
    Psykka
    Silent Scope
    Nerfirefight24
    Devil0532

I am also offering name engraving at wars as well and lastly if anyone there would like a run through for modding i can do that at the war as well.

    Tool Kit (current contents)

    Dremel 10.8v lithium
    Dremel Flex shaft
    Leatherman
    Philips head screwdriver
    Set of small files
    Pipe cutter
    Long nose pliers (small)
    Sidecutter (small)
    Hobby Knife
    Assorted Screws
    Assorted small springs for catches
    EC tape
    Plumb Weld - PVC cement.

    Were you the guy we were all talking to at cam's war?

    I'll be coming to this if it happens.

    Hey Sev I've been packing my own tool kit for our wars too. I used it once on Sunday. Sadly I don't have the cash for a battery dremil.

    Make it this Friday if you can, Dylan. If you get the confirmation from your parents shout me a PM regarding contact details.
    And as for you, Cam, if you're up for this Wednesday shout me a PM about meeting up for the day.

    Now, my thoughts about this subject; I would like to see this initiative to be a daily occurance as some of us are in lacking of firepower. Just like KingCam and Psykka are organising the fortnightly wars, I would like to lead the way in teaching and directing modding tutorials for those wanting to learn. It would be a huge help if you're willing to invite us and provide the space and tools needed to take this intiative foward. I'm more than happy to drive and carpool people around my area.

    And yes, we'll have pizzas from my pocket. Beer if you're 18+.

    Hey Dylan,
    This is a cool idea, I once had a mod party with Pois0n KingCam and Sweetchillimustard and it was fun as.
    Just make sure you know who you are inviting over and dont post your adress on the forums, you dont know what type of creepy old men could be on this site.
    Anyway as for the dates, I will have to see when I am free and I will get back to you.

    Yeah this is a shit idea... Nah I'm joking.

    Modding 'groups' or 'parties' are great because you feel more motivated to actually do something. When phuonguyen comes over to mod with me, we finished 4 furyfires in 1hr and a half. Usually when I'm by myself, it would be sitting in the corner XD.

    It's also a great to have a 'get together'. I do modding sessions (or dart making sessions) at inf0rm3r's house when get a chance. It's just great motivation :D.

    As Adam said, it is very fun. I bet you got a lot of things done too instead if you were to do it by yourself :).

    P.S. If you are doing a modding session. Make sure you have the basic tools.

    Screw Drivers are the major thing or else you'll be fighting over them lol.
    Dremel if you got one with lotsa cutting discs
    Hot glue and gun (for dart making sesh)

    Is all I can really think of at the moment lol.

    You may also require a drill
    Pipe cutter
    a saw, coping, scroll and/or bandsaw (since these will give a cleaner cut than the dremel)
    Pliers
    side cutters

    actually the list could go on and on.

    That is true but I think those are like basic tools for modification. A hammer if you're modding a maverick lol. Well I guess in a Nutshell... try to bring your own tools. Modding stuff is quicker that way.

    I vote for this friday too. I can happily carpool some people that are between me and dylbot's house. I'll have 2-3 seats free and a very large boot.

    Hey Silent Scope do you think you could pick up a bunch of conduit and stuff to do barrels and do trippleshot quadding ( I'll pay pay you for anything I use of course) I want to do a couple of trippleshots and have a go at brassing my longshot in that style you showed us ( have some brass though).

    Also if anyone has access to foam backer rod could you please buy some for me as well (please not the black stuff) If we have time I'll make some darts for dart hire at my wars.

    What colour is the FBR?

    probably just bring along a meter or two so I can make some test darts. After that I'll grab some more off you.

    this does sound like a great idea, unfortuneately i cant do it this week, but i do wanna learn more and mod my guns a bit more (longstrike, vulcan, switch shot and night finder)

    I have access to a shit load of springs and a local industrial supply store so i can bring along some for people who know they want to do spring mods ie replacements or catch springs.

    All i need is your name what type you want and how many, and strenght

    i will NEED the dimentions of the spring width and lenght and internal diamter, and prefered in imperial measurement (fractions). i know thats harsh and picky but thats what they are measured in and written on the packets. i tryed geuessing and i have alot of wasted springs at home.

    common size is 1 and 1/8 i think thats the size of a longstrike spring diameter to fit over the plunger tube, but measure and let me know, if your having another party of course

    Roger (Explosion) that.

    And yes, I also have the white foam backer rod. I bought it from Mitre 10.

    What, you've never heard of doing the party in the evening? Besides, it's not as if you have any school on Saturday for not having the ability to stay up later.

    And just to remind you, if you forgot that is, that I can't do Saturdays due to work. I'm trying to find a spare Saturday to miss work but don'tn bank on it yet...

    Also on the agenda, for some you folk living in the west (think Taylors Lakes area) I have some hope for you. I have a uni friend who might have the space and tools to work on our blasters. I'll keep you all posted'

    I know Im not in Melbourne, but...

    It seems like fun (I would go if i could), and you will probably have people over there with loads of modding expirience. If any of you do mods that arent already posted on oznerf, could you please post a topic! I wish someone could do this in Queensland...

    PS: You could take pic and vids of the mod party, and use them in some sort of oznerf youtube promo. (apart from the one already out there)

    Starting time would be anywhere between 4.00 and whenever people get off work. Finishing time would be whenever people are sick of modding and want some sleep!

    If you're going to have a mod party. You either do it Early in the morning till late afternoon. OR. Do an all nighter and sleep over. Well... that's how I do it. Sometimes from morning till the next morning I mod junk with inf0rm3r.

    I've found an ideal spring size that should act as a general additional upgrade for most blasters. I'll send you the details via PM.

    just getting my stuff together now.

    Silent scope if you have time can you get enough bits for 3 tripleshots, 1 longshot rebreaching and enough extra conduit to rebarrel about 6-8 other guns.

    I will of course pay you back for the materials cost.

    Thanks in advance

    Geez that's a fair order. I'll try to bring the following materials:

    • 10M of 16mm conduit
    • 2M of 20mm conduit
    • 25mm drainage PVC
    • 32mm drainage PVC
    • assorted couplers and joints
    • adhesives: epoxy, hot glue, zap-a-gap etc
    • tape
    • PETG
    • 14mm fbr
    • brass: 15/32, 1/2, 17/32, 19/32, 21/32
    • other bits and pieces

    I would like to mod the following blasters:

    • Mavericks
    • NiteFinders
    • Belt Blasters
    • BBMMs
    • Longshots
    • Tek 3s
    • Furyfires
    • BBBs

    Of course, what will be worked on may be completely different. We'll see what the night brings...

    Now, I have received a PM or two regarding any blasters available. All I can say for the time being is that, whilst I have a crapload of blasters at disposal, I will be not selling anything primary-worthy in particular for anything less than $50. And even then, that's really going in the cheaper end of deals when considering what goes around in the Trading forum...

    HELL YEAH ULTIMATE STREET CRED YO!

    Give back to your fellow member and buy his wares. All profits stay in Australia, tune up my VR SS V8, and more.
    In case you're curious about my WTB requests or my Triple Shot products.

    Don't worry, I've compiled a list so far of us VIC crew here, yo.

    Also, can you people start putting titles in PMs? I can't be bothered trying to figure out what the subject and context is within a PM.

    Now a proud owner of a Holden VR Commodore SS V8 with a stage 2 shifter, VVVVRRRRRRRROOOOOOMMMM!
