Hi all, you can get syringes at your local co-op. they run about 39 to 59 cents apeice. If there isnt a co-op near you, try a vet supplier on-line.

Hey- I go to the little drug store-in-the-foodmarket for mine, cheap. Another excellent source I found was a store called Big R- it's a rancher-type store- they have vet supplies. And tons of other shit- love that store. Someday I'll get in there for horse stuff because I'll have some horses...

Anyway, a store like that, that caters to a more rural crowd- syringes were $0.29, as were 20 gauge needles. I got syringes of different sizes- I keep some larger ones filled with alchohol for the alchohol stone (I made an alchohol lamp from a stone instead of the bottom of a shot glass- kinda cool) and H2O2- both just for a shot here or there when I'm working on something mycological- so anyways, the ones at the market, thinner needles and smaller syringes, about $0.59 or some such- cheap by any means.

If you look scruggy, you might encounter resistance. If you go to a rancher supply store, looking scruggy is ok, just look western while you're at it. I don't see them refusing in any case to sell, although I could see a pharmacy refusing to sell to someone they thought might be 'suspicious'....

they have like these things called farmers co-ops. They sell animal supplies for dogs, cattle, horses, along with garden stuff. Your basic farmer stuff. They also sell rye grain, 50lb bags for like 8 bucks. They are great.  All kinds of hidden goodies. I get all my animals vaccinations there, and do them myself. They dont bat an eye at buying syringes. I went in the other day and bought 30 various sizes, and a bottle of pen-g, came to like 12 bucks. The pen. was most expensive thing. Had a major dog fight over the weekend. My fem. dane tore up my fem. rotty. Had to give the antibiotics, and will prob have to suture her head up if it doesn't start to heal. Anyway, sorry bout the ramble, and let me know.....

I a box of 10cc BD syringes from the pharmacy yesterday. When I opened the box I noticed that they don't have needles on them. Do I have to buy these seperatly? What would the needles for these things be called. I'm sure there must be different guages etc.

Any help is much appreciated!

Wow i didnt know you could buy them right out of a pharmacy :) I think what you need to ask for is this :)

B-D Precision Glide(TM) Disposable Needles

If you cant find them you could make your own, or if you have some pints you need to innoculate. Mycelial Syringe Project

I think you want the lower # gauges.I think they are thicker. Also you would want to get the longest. They dont cost much I dont know why they didnt give them to you or ask if you need some.

I like a #16  gauge needle myself. #18 is next best. #16 is a nice diameter for spores or mycelia, and you can't get one that is too long - Nan

i believe the standard spore syringe comes with an 18 gauge needle.

check the nearest co-op they will carry them .

If ya live where there is any agriculture/livestock, try the feed & seed store, like a TSC. Farmers medicate their own animals, and the syringes and needles hang like fishing lures at K-Mart.

try Fungi Perfecti, they sell really long needles, no questions asked.

I always get syrings from the local farm supply store. they have big boxes of different sizes. Look for the longest needle you can get. I found a huge 30cc syringe there, I named it The Innoculator.

By Kenny Keller (Kennieyk) on Saturday, January 26, 2002 - 11:28 pm:

Well i Found the syringes but cant seem to find any place local that has the right type Needles
Anyone have any ideas ? I called like 10 pharmacys.

By An guy (Boomer) on Sunday, January 27, 2002 - 12:34 am:

not to put too fine a point on it, but did you call around to feed and seed stores? farm and ranch supply places?

Hey I ordered a dozen 60cc syringes from these guys above and they were packed, shipped, and in my hands in 2 days. The syringes are in their original sterile sealed wrapper, ready for sterile work right out of the box
