    Interested:
    DCB = 10
    Zamsara = 4 (paid, shipped..)
    LadyZam = 4
    JediNitess = 4 (shipped and received)
    Mookie = 2

    Total = 28


    <font color="#CC0033">
    EDIT ~ 2/3/04
    Okay, I'm going to round up on the price of the connectors to &#36;2 a piece.

    When you PM me with your addresses, please let me know if you want insurance, ect.

    Thank you!




    <font color="#990000">*EDIT* 8/18/03
    After many hassels with Aussie post and banks, Ali finally recieved my check to help her pay for the 34 hose connectors we 'ordered'. I'm sorry it's taken this long. I just want to make sure that everyone still wants what they asked for. As soon as she sends me the connectors, I'll be sending you all a PM.

    BTW... this question from Ali was emailed today:
    "Does it matter (for costuming purposes) what diameter the little pipe that sticks out is? Cos I've been sending you 13mm pipes I think, but there's some connectors with 19mm pipes I think, but otherwise they are identical. If the pipe width doesn't matter, I can get way more connecors in
    one go. Let me know..."


    Does it matter to anyone? If not, I'll tell her to buy what she can.

    Thanks for you patience.




    Hello fellow Zammer's.

    This is an interest thread to find out how many of you would like Hose Connectors that either were not able to get a pair that Dallas had supplied, or if you just want extras in case of a boo boo.

    My friend in Australia is willing to go hunting for more of these, but I need to know if anyone is interested of course.

    They are &#36;3 (Australian) a piece. I did not get a pair of Dallas' connectors so I do not know if they are identical to the ones he got, but they are pretty close I think.

    They have 4 "prongs", 9 ridges between each prong, is 1 inch in diameter on one side and about an 1 and a quarter on the other.

    Some pics:















    Sorry the images are blurry. The work digi cam was fighting me.

    perfect - they are exact to the ones i had - but without the expensive timer part - i wish i woulda found those when i was there... but i went to prolly 4 diff HW stores and my friend went to 10+ - and never saw these ones

    oh - you need to keep the other part too - the ring that screws into the part - as this will help connect it to the vest.

    oh - and i'll get 5 pair from ya. LMK when ya get em

    You will not believe this but I think she found them at K-Mart.

    I'll let you know as soon as I hear from Alison. She's gone quiet on me again.

    She's studying to be an anthro / palentologist and sometimes she gets called away unexpectedly to help out at digs.

    *UPDATE*

    I sent Aly a check to buy the hose connectors WEEKS ago and the stupid postal service lost it.

    I sent it Global Priority too. grrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!

    She picked up a few connectors out of pocket, but can't afford to get the total without some help.

    We were going to do a wire transfer as a back up plan but she hasn't been answering her email so I think she's off on a last minute dino dig.

    So, I wanted to let you all know that I haven't forgotten about this.... it's just that nothing seems to be going our way.

    BUMPITY BUMP BUMP BUMP!

    Mom called to tell me another package from OZ had arrived with the words 'hose connectors from Alison' written upon it.

    Not sure how many she was able to send in this package. What I want to know is if all those who are on the sign up sheet are still interested in these hose connectors.

    Please reply in this thread with a yay or nay. Thanks!
