1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    So I always love trying out new stuff and recently found myself looking at this new material called Oilon.

    [FONT=&quot]Its a type of nylon which has had a lubricant blended into it, to give it a lower friction coefficient, making it have a good wear rate.[/FONT]

    http://www.directplasticsonline.co.uk/OilonRod
    [FONT=&quot]
    As it has such a low wear rate, it want wear out quickly and it also has a low friction coefficient which means it’s almost as slippery as PTFE!!![/FONT][FONT=&quot]:)[/FONT][FONT=&quot] This stuff may workout good in our Springer’s!! [/FONT]

    I got myself some of this green stuff today and will be trying out for you guys:) so keep your eyes on this:up:
    The plan is to make up a tight fitting spring guide and top hate, take the average measurements put 10,000 pellets through the gun, take it apart and measure again to see the difference? Should be interesting, to see the results.

    :):)

    I've used Oilron on a couple of occasions and unless you have a sharp cutter it melts the rod :D it smells horrid if overheated.

    It was bad to work (both fumes and tooling) and wasn't as resiliant in use as delrin, which is also self lubricating.

    I found it considerably more brittle, which is the curse of spring guides! Over the years I've tried everything. Many times!:rolleyes:
