    I have removed your link to an ebay auction that was not yours or has ended. Please reread the CoC or if you have questions, please PM me.

    I saw this axe on the bay, saved the pic as it shows quite alot, really need to find out what parts were used, i think the top part that kind of holds the blade on was from a hairdryer ?? but which one is my question

    Would love to try and get all the parts together especially if they were all real parts, another bit looks like a spark plug from a car.

    That piece with all of the slots looks like an old Con-air blow dryer/ brush. It didn't have a nozzle ( like a gun) , you actually brushed your hair while blow drying. The ball at thebottom looks like a toilet part, the float.

    Thanks to Solochaser ive realised that the slotted section is infact a Gillette Super Max Hairdryer, and the ball section at the bottom is infact a Melnor Soft-Flo Soaker model 5330c, this was for a hose pipe!

    Re: VIBRO AXE.....?!?!

    I managed to get the one from the bay in the end, gotta get my buddy to take a mold of it so that i dont destroy the master as that would suck !

    If anyone has any of the other parts used or can get hold of them LMK as i would be very interested.

    In the end i want to be able to build an exact replica and possibly offer them to other people in a kit form.

    Hey Steve, have you talked to David (Dougie Fett), I know he is working on some Skiff guards, you guys could save yourself some time maybe..........and if you need any help with molding etc drop me a line, Also, I would be interested in owning one of those some time if you figure it out.

    If I remember correctly the actual model of soaker is long out of production. However, there is a similar one available but you have to have two of them to make it look right. I'm still trying to locate the store I ordered mine from for you.

    Re: VIBRO AXE.....?!?!

    i want to make one as well. From the Parts of SW and ThePRF.com it looks like they have tons of part ideas and casts. The soaker is a Melnor "Soft-Flo Soaker" Model 5330C . I need to find good reference to the length of it.

    I just found the hairdryer part upon cleaning out my grandmothers apartment. She passed away in July and I found it in a shoe box. I might try and build the vibro axe someday as well.

    Cojake, sorry to hear about your grandmother bro, but that is an awsome find!

    T_Bone, that would be very cool if you could find out where you bought your stuff from, would be a big help

    Thanks again guys
