Hi the last post was in 2008.. but im looking for empty canisters too.. willing to pay for them. im from uk, so ideally you need to be in uk for ease of shipping.. if you have a large amount i'll be willing to collect them cash on collection.
I have a couple hundred of these. Are you still interested?

Hi! I'm a sculpture student and and need approximately 6,000 + to add texture to walls. If anyone has empty chargers lying around, PLEASE message me and I'll arrange to have them shipped. I've been going to Starbucks but they are only going through 2 a day. I need these by the end of November, when my assignment is due. THANK YOU!!!!

Yea! Those would work perfectly. I'll pay for the shipping to send them to me... how many might you have lying around?
Well, I just found out Mom threw most of them away (she always throws away the best stuff). How many do you need? I am going to go check the airsoft course in the woods for discarded cartridges (there are at least two or three up there). I only have three guaranteed right now, but I will look after school. :(

laminterious (author)  Spl1nt3rC3ll6 years ago
Well, I am looking for about 3 dozen or more, preferably. All of my kids want one now and refuse to share...*sigh*
Well, I'd have at least 25 if Mom hadn't thrown them out. Right now I have eight, and I'm still looking.
Do they need to be clean, as in no rust or dirt?
I'm going to an airsoft place Sunday, maybe there's some over there...
I now have 14...
i have six, but they are still not openned. when ill puk them in my airsoft and they are empty, ill keep them for you.

Yes please!

I can wait for them all.. the shipping should be a bit less that way.. unless you just want to get them off your hands now, then I'll send you payment now.
ok I'll let you know when they are all empty and i can ship them in the box i got them in, should be a few weeks at most.
cool, thanks
Hey, did you still want these? I totally forgot all about them and came across an instructables article which jogged my memory, so e-mail me if you want 'em.

wow, those things look soooo handy for decorating stuff. they are soooooo coooool.
Are those inside whipped cream cans?
No, but they're used by "professional" whipped cream dispensers, sorta the way CO2 cartridges are used by seltzer bottles.

please don't be making them into bombs; I understand they make nice SHARP shrapnel!
laminterious (author)  westfw6 years ago
Oh no, no bombs. My son wants bullet belts and whatnot, and these look decently enough like real bullets that they will work for what he wants.
Oh, lawd. Please be careful with those. I have a friend who got suspended (from a college, mind you) for wearing one of those. Well, suspended for refusing to remove it when the cops told him to, but still.
I've got a friend who bought one in NY...when she came back, she mistakenly brought it on her carry on luggage through the airport! Thankfully it was just taken away.
My son is only 6, so no worries there... and he's homeschooled heh
Also check out motorbike places, ask a few cycling and motorcycle places, they have similar Co2 capsules for Tyre inflation kits, those might do the job nicely, I know I have a few capsules kicking about as well...

How about these Baby Soda Bottles (PET bottle pre-forms); they're bigger, but probably weight about the same as a metal cartridge, and they double as nice conttainers or test-tubes.
The vendor has a bunch of neat stuff...

laminterious (author)  westfw6 years ago
hmm.. those are a bit too big, but I will keep them in mind. Thank you very much for the link!

Oh, it's a shame you're in the states (I assume) so the postage would be too high. I know a household near where I used to live, who have.... probably of the order of ten or fifteen thousand of these. I'm not kidding. Think of an entire kitchen bin full of them at least twice over and a few half-full bin bags as well. They must eat a lot of whipped cream.
laminterious (author)  PKM6 years ago
A huge shame.... damn. Wonder how much it would be....
caitlinsdad6 years ago
Have you tried asking at a restaurants or dessert cafes where they use a lot of whipped cream for their empties? Those chargers also come in CO2 version for making your own soda water. Maybe you could find a paintball site that collects the used ones off the grounds or some gun range that allows airguns.
i think you can get them at REI outdoor goods. not empty, though

Yea, I have no need for the filled ones...
