Hey All ,I'm Lozzard ,I'm new here to this page which I find awesome ,I'm in Australia and as you all know it's damn hard to get visco here ,I was wondering if anyone in my boat has the same dramas and if there is anyway somebody could point me in right direction to procure a reliable source ,I'm sorted for everything else ,until I can either make one or wait until I can grab a kit ,I been mucking around with my lathe and think I got a decent tooling for bottle rockets ,bungers etc,I gotta crawl before I walk but hope to get into some mortars and stuff soon ,any help would be appreciated,thanks heaps ,pm me anytime

G'day mate and welcome.

 

Visco is hard to come by here but its not impossible to aquire it. You might like to check out this post http://www.amateurpy...ralians/page-23 where lots of aus pyro related sourcing is discussed. Including sourcing visco from overseas.

 

I plan to eventually check out twingeberry's machine also though, when I have the time to get into the project.

 

Cheers
