Many industries and companies require up to date copies of the CRC. Copies only a few years old can be picked up off ebay quite frequently. I'm lucky enough to have access to the most current one from university access.

I've been having a clear-out and have just got round to putting my no-longer wanted pyro literature on eBay. They're on as charity auctions, so you'll be helping a very worthy cause (in the form of the Woodland Trust). Well, two worthy causes if I count as one ;)

I'd pretty well given it up two years ago, just haven't got around to selling these until now. In the autumn my BP press will start its new career in the field of cider making :rolleyes: I might have a few other bits of tooling to sell at some point - will put a heads up on here if and when I do.

Shidlovsky - Principles of Pyrotechnics

The Urbanski books, well I just don't know where to find affordable hard copies. Volume I goes for $1,000 USD used.
Good luck.
