As the title says, does anyone know where I might be able to buy a litre or so of the stuff?

Anyone on the West Coast want to pop a quick listing on Trademe?

The guys at Industrial Sands in Auckland have it and have been very helpful in giving me the chance to get some from them but I am in Wellington so that's a little troublesome.

I might try and see if I can find someone in Auckland prepared to go for a drive for me and pick some up and ship it down.

I'm sure everyone is curious... why? And how much are you prepared to pay? :P

(if you'd asked before easter I could have picked up plently of the stuff...)

Got a new, experimental steel-making process?

Heh, it's for my Architectural Thesis work. I'm hoping to do some investigations on sound and perception and have had a thought on using some iron sand for part of it. I would only need about 500ml of it so not a lot. It needs to be pure enough that an electro magnet can make it move and thus make some sound.

I don't want to say exactly what i'm thinking about doing as the design process is still very much in flux and might change before I get to a final experiment.

I could probably vacuum my car, empty out my bag and brush it out of my wetsuit! You should have asked before the weekend, the seasons finished now & I'm not out at the beach as often. If you haven't had any luck by next week, I'll probably be going mountain biking at Woodhill and could pick some up while I'm there & ship it to you, not as pure as the stuff on the beach but you can extract the good stuff with an electromagnet I imagine.

Have you tried a local landscaping crowd?
