4 ducks up for this toy!
I am going to pick another up for sure.
be careful hitting it with a 22 at 10 meters...I need to straighten some of my ducks already on the first one I bought.
Great fun.

Recently the counter-weight broke off of one of my ducks. I need to weld it back on, but I have no welder, and don't know how to weld! Maybe JB Weld can hold it for a while...

Still, those ducks took a beating. Many hours of fun and worth the full price I paid, so $30 is a great deal.

Well someone had to say it.....
at the risk of sounding racist (which I am not) one of the funniest terms I have heard fro it is 'Mexican Solder". A friend of mine was tracking down a leak under his dads sink and finally opened a wall to find a punctured pipe that had actually been wrapped in duct tape then drywalled in. amazingly it held for at least 20 years they figure. He had pictures so it did happen.

When I was younger I was hired to do maintenance on a motel......got a call about a leak under a sink, and sure enough the p-trap was being held together by Duct tape. No wonder they got rid of the previous guy :axe:

Coincidently, duct tape is better at sealing a leaking water pipe than duct work. I am a Sheetmetal Worker and know first hand that duct tape sucks for air. Now foil tape, that stuff is the shiznit. On a warm duct the standard 100 mile an hour tape just dries out and flakes off but the foil actually sticks more.

Oh and I have the ducks too. Well worth it they are tons of fun when just knocking stuff down and not having to go set them back up is what you want. Mine are a bit bent too but still function just fine and are easy to bend back to straight.

OK Tinner (as in tin banger I assume now) seriously...what tape is best fro metal duct work? I have tried "duct" tape and the foil tape on the hot air manifold on my big old furnace and both just dry up and come off?

I am picking up another duck trap this morning as a present from my wife. Weeeee an early morning trip to see the Princes!

Hey! if red green says its good then it must be good :lol:

Murray try to find the Tesa aluminum silver foil tape, we use this at work in our big office tower's and i have some on my furnace piping as well its been there for years never dried out, you must make sure the area is clean and dust free before applying the tap, stuff sticks incredibly well. This is also the aluminum tape i used for my P-17 piston mod. :wink:

Plinkercases, you would be correct, tin knocker or tin banger by trade. Actually the best thing for sealing ductwork is a product made by Durodyne called, well, duct sealer. It is a grey paste that dries like rubber and you apply with a paint brush. You can find this product at most HVAC suppliers such as Woseley, Noble, Ductmate. Ace is correct the Tesa tapes are good or there is Venture tape and the area must be clean and dry. Also take something with a flat edge like a bank card and use that to smooth out the tape so that it contacts well.
It's too bad gctkaz is so far away I could weld that weight back on lickety split.

Sorry got off topic there

Okay I don't happen to be lucky enough to have a Princess Auto nearby. In fact the nearest one is in Moncton, about three and a half hours away. But this past week I traveled to Halifax on business where there's a second Princess Auto.

The Moncton PA doesn't carry any other pellets than the Grizzly or Crosman brands and they are available right on the shelf.

The Halifax PA carries the Grizzly or Crosman brands plus some JSB Match pellets and RWS BB's but they're only available behind the Customer Service counter.

I picked up some JSB Match Exact RS Diabolo and Straton pellets. I love collecting pellets as much as I love collecting airguns.

They even had this sample pack of JSB pellets for $19.99.Image
