Thanks for the tip I checked ebay Australia and nothing then I checked ebay.com and found this

New Pizza Oven Brass Wire Bristle Brush w/ scraper 10" (eBay item 120680829057 end time 13-Feb-11 09:27:36 AEDST) : Business Industrial

I snapped up the last one.
All up $18 including shipping and I supply my own pole.
Gotta love ebay

PS - I just sold my cement mixer which I purchased of ebay late last year and made $80 profit on it.

Hi GI,
I went to Bunnings and brought a couple of bannister brushes, a couple of slight mods to the brushes, I have been using these for about a year now, just starting to show signs of wear, also the peel I made out of .9mm stainless sheet that I picked up cheap at a local fabrication shop, Hope the photos might give you some ideas?

Cheers,
Gary

I was thinking of getting this but doesnt it need to have the handle on the other side so the whole thing is skinny?

Hi All,

OscarA, did you get that item in?? did it come through customs ok?

Baltic, awesome tools, definitely gave me some ideas. I found theres a metal short not to far from me who sells scrap metal. Might pick some up for the door and the tools.. How did you bevel the front edge of the peel,,, so you don't cut or stab the pizza but so that it slides underneath easily??

FSW seem really cheap but dont ship outside the U.S. Any aussies had luck getting it in another way?? Any import issues due to the wood??


Cheers,

Gi

Not yet, I'm not expecting it for another week or two.
I don't think the wood is an issue with customs as it's most likely treated for the export market. I would think the scraper,broom is most likely made in China and exported to the US and now it'll make it's way to OZ.
I think wood is an issue when tourist buy carvings etc which are possibly carved from fresh untreated wood.
Manufactured stuff like furniture etc are different as they most likely have to go through some treatment.
I'm only making an assumption as so many of our imported stuff is made from wood.
I'll find out soon enough.

Importing timber items isnt a problem aslong as there is no bark on the timber.

Bought the peel and cut/shaped to suit my needs (around $28.00). Wire brush head from USA (eBay) at $Aus14.84 (cost plus postage). Made the rest to suit needs with scrap laying around. Total cost probably around $45.
You don't need to spend a fortune to achieve good pizza......
