    Sharpening A Needle

    Well Swim has this old dull needle, Hes wonder if he could sharpen it with imperial paper, Its very fine almost like sand paper but finer.
    he cant get eny other equitment *Cry*

    But atleast he boils and keeps his equitment very sterile.

    Oh and another thing, he has an old needle used on a horse.
    if he boil it will it kill of all deises and bacteria.
    :crazy:eek:

    AW: Sharpening A Needle

    Do it Rectal, all the other things are stupid and lead sooner or later to a infection!
    (Maybe swiny even like it (Rectal use)!)

    A Needle normally is so fine, if swiny start to manipulated it
    he will do many tiny hooks inside of the scharpening/ schliff, profil.
    With that Hooks swiny will penetrated and tear the Vein,
    the Vein need a longer Time for healing and become out of use for a long Time!
    In the Scars Bacterias start to squat your Body
    and will make a Party (Sepsis 2009) long time not seen!

    Just make a Test, push the Needle inside a cotton ball and have a look how many tiny fibres you can see!

    Regards, Stay safe and think twice :)

    Re: Sharpening A Needle

    The following link explains the legality of purchasing syringes without a prescription in the U.S.
    Syringe Access Law in the United States:
    A State of the Art Assessment of Law and Policy
    By: Scott Burris, Steffanie A. Strathdee and Jon S. Vernick
    http://www.publichealthlaw.net/Research/PDF/syringe.pdf

    Usually, if one is well dressed and clean in appearance, purchasing insulin syringes OTC from a pharmacy with only a State ID can be accomplished without a problem. Many diabetics who get their syringes through a mail order company, often end up having to purchase a 10-pack or two from the local drugstore to tide them over till the next mail delivery. So for this reason... With just a little effort, one can usually find an establishment that is lax on syringe policy.​

    Re: Sharpening A Needle

    Buying needles in the USA is very easy. Pharmacists never look at my raver friend at all strangely if he asks for them. You DO have to ask though, they won't be on the shelves anywhere.

    Blunt needles are awful. Don't ever think that using one is a valid option.

    Re: Sharpening A Needle

    Swim has bought needles in Florida right from a pharmacy! Yeah, some pharmacies will say that to you cuz they feel they may be somehow liable if you were to die but that is a pharmacy rule not a law. If for some reason every pharmacy in swiy's town has that rule than you can always order them from the internet. There are many many different sites that will ship a box of needles to anywhere in the US overnight for the same price they would be at a local pharmacy.
    Be safe!

    Pacman gotta agree sharpening isn't the way to go it will ruin SWIY veins straight away and once they are gone they are gone then SWIY will need to move to femoral or more dangerous places. Really don't do it. SWIY would be better off using the dull needle once

    Re: Sharpening A Needle

    If swiy is dead set on trying to sharpen needles then in swims opinion this is the best way. THis is the way he used to do it when he was foolish enough to not just go buy some new ones. He would take really really fine sand paper or the striker from a match box, he would then take the cover off of a fan, and last but not least he would glue the striker/sand paper to the center of the fan. You turn the fan on and its basically a grinding wheel that is really really fine. Be careful to not overdo it though!!!

    needle exchange? 100 needles absolutely free!! free cottons, torniquettes, alcohol wipes, needles, water ampules, condoms, and free testing too. Its the way to go

    my edit:

    i forgot to say it is completely anonymous, they dont ask your name. and the give you a card saying you are allowed to have them so you don't get busted for paraphenalia

    I know for a fact they have needle exchanges in Florida. I dont know what area swiy is in but it would definitely be worth checking out

    Thats not true, in fact, in most states now in the US no prescription is needed to purchase syringes, florida is one of the few states that its still illegal. You do however, have to be 18 to buy them. At least in NY.

    Sway knows that its a bad idea to reuse and sharpen needles.. but sometimes its a necessary evil. Sway has heard that they can be sharpened on a match strip. Does anyone have a better way to do it?

    MsBrownstone added 25 Minutes and 8 Seconds later...

    Ooops, sway posted this and then found a thread answering her question 2 seconds later.. Sorry for double-posting.

    Just in case anyone stumbles their way here, let me just say that match strips can contain phosphorus, glass and small splinters (that's bad, dummy).
