    Score!!!

    Just wanted to let you guys in on a couple great deals I scored on some DIY materials.

    I got 1000' of 3/32" shock cord for $42.50. That's $.04/ft! They have other sizes too for less.

    And I got 300' of polyester webbing for $40 That's $.13/ft

    I could be wrong but I don't believe I've come across prices that even come remotely close to what I got this stuff for. I felt obligated to share with the rest of you.

    You lucky dog you!
    I got in a fight one time with a really big guy, and he said, "I'm going to mop the floor with your face." I said, "You'll be sorry." He said, "Oh, yeah? Why?" I said, "Well, you won't be able to get into the corners very well."

    ZQ here...the shock cord is good stuff....just know that it isn't one continuous length...there are breaks in the 1000' length...not a deal breaker though!

    ...I hope not...if it was, I'd have to ask just what you were trying to do with a thousand feet of bungee. Hrm...

    Good deal, there, SwinginIt! Any specific projects planned?

    ...for me....I hate waste...even if it is a few feet. I come to a break in the cord, and that piece isn't long enough...that piece becomes scrap! ZQ
