Ghetto Needle
    #2343427 - 02/16/04 11:07 PM (12 years, 9 months ago)

I've had a lot of trouble finding empty syringes/needles. The best I could do was to get a syringe from a Vet but he said he couldn't sell me the needle.

So I've had to improvise.


Firstly I got the plastic syringe for $2 (australian dollars) at a petshop/vet.



Now instead of a needle I'm going to use one of those nozzles you put on bicycle pumps so you can pump up footballs with it.
I got this at a hardware store for $2. I've also seen them at sports stores.



In order to attatch the two together I've got some vinyl tubing at the hardware store. I got it for free because I only wanted 1 centimetre of it :P



The diameter of this tube is big enough so the syringe will fit into it tightly with a bit of pushing. It isn't big enough to fit the back end of the ball pump nozzle, but that's not a problem.

I've put the tube in some boiling hot water for a little bit, to soften it up.



Now with a bit of effort and twisting the back end of the nozzle will fit into the tube



Now here's the dodgy part. I didn't realize the nozzle things had a valve inside them to stop them from 'sucking in' anything, so the syringe has to be filled up without the needle actually on it. This might be a contamination hazard, but hey... it's the ghetto needle!

So now I put the whole thing together



And it's ready to go! What do you reckon? I think it's better than using an eyedropper, and only cost me $4 (Australian Dollars) to make(That's about USD $3), and nothing needed to be ordered online etc...

That looks great, but another avenue of approach that you may want to look into is a flavor injector for meat. I found one that has a needle that is about 12 or 14 gauge and it works fine.

that is a fine example of they triumph of the human spirit. nice work. For futu re referance, if you have a farm supply store near you, you can get syringes for super cheap for horses and cows and shit like that, no questions asked. stores like Atwoods or Southern Agriculture have them. You might not have one near you, Im from Oklahoma and we have a buttload of cows. so not to hard for me to find.

very nice ghetto style bro...

You should look for those flavor injectors in the BBQ section of grocery and hardware stores. They only cost a few bucks and work great! the large gauge needle is great for liquid culture too.

awesome dude my buddy did almost the exact same thing with his first innoc. only he decided to superglue the needle to the syringe and when he filled the makeshift syringe with hot water the glue got hot and gave off some horrible fumes. bad times.

Howdy Ghetto...
This is pasted from another thread I made a while back... I'm also an Aussie and understand your situation.

Heres how to get syringes from the pharmacy

1 Look respectable (Dress Well)
2 Go to your local pharmacist with a bottle of model glue in your hand...
3 Tell him/her that you are building a 'ship in a bottle' and need a fairly large syringe with a large guage needle to apply the glue as required.
4 Ask what would be best (squirt a little of the glue out at this stage for them to have a look at the consistency and explain that you can dilute it with 'thinners', but only a little...)
5 Repress smile as they bring the box out from the back room and open a couple of the sharps for you so you can inspect the guages...

Hah awesome! I actually thought of buying a Sharps kit, but they're like $20, they have to sell these to you, because it's for safety even if they think you're a smack head.
I figured I couldn't get a syringe+needle for the low price of $4 so I just macgyvered that.
