    Bunnings trip today, correct materials?

    Post  PhantomSambo on Sun Feb 20, 2011 9:23 am

    Okay, so today I went to Bunnings, and picked up some general nerf materials.

    10m of 'Gap Filler Rod' (FBR), 10mm. They didn't have 12.7.

    Generic fishing weights, (about 250 of them, they're the size of airsoft BBs)

    A spring. It appears to be unusable as it's very hard and compressed. (On the packet: C-792, 7/8 x 3 x .105, 'UTILITY COMP SPRING')

    I've already started to cut the FBR to different lengths.

    Just asking, as this is my first time gathering materials, did I get the right ones?

    It all depends on what you are doing (modding). The spring you got is wrong though, i'm guessing you wanted the c-836. The 10mm fbr isn't too bad, but you will have to find your own barrel material. What you really wanted was 13mm FBR (Bunnings only sells 10 and 15) and the c-836 spring.
    Hope i helped

    Ah.Damn. Yes, I saw that other spring there. Also, they had 15mm PVC. Good barrel material? And I'm modding an Element EX-3, and a Longshot.

    Ok. Look. I'm knida new to modding and i've made the same mistake. The 15mm PVC is too big. For the Element You should go to Clark Rubber and get 13mm Gap filler rod, then go to bunnings and get the C-836 spring. You fishing weights are good. Then go to a hobby store and get 17/32" brass material for your barrel and if you want a coupler, keep the 15mm PVC pipe and buy a coupler from Bunnings and just use tape and glue to nest the brass in the PVC.
    Edit: Maybe you shouldn't start doing the mods to the longshot for another month or so. For now just do AR removal on the longshot and do some serious youtubing on all the mods you can do for both guns and for further info. in Aus we have no CPVC as you will see in many videos.

    You know, I still for the life of me cannot figure out why we have no CPVC.

    I totally agree mate. CPVC is used for hot water and I think it's fireproof and Aus has water and fire so why not?

    Closest you can get to CPVC in Australia is UPVC or electrical conduit, this can be bought at electrical supply stores and home hardware. UPVC wont fit stefans it will only fit blue foam and stock darts. You want 16mm aluminium from Bunnings. For darts you want 13mm FBR from Biancos or someone on the forum.

    If you buy the 15mm foam backer rod from bunnings it's exactly the same size as the old mega ammo. The orange upvc conduit fit's the mega ammo perfectly.

    I went to bunnings, got the C-836 spring, then went to Clarke Rubber and bought 5m of 13mm backer rod. Thanks for your help, everyone.
