Here's a different way of making your own static grass applicator. Seems to work OK.

Hi there and welcome to the forum. You will find a welcome message in the Welcome To New Members section if you could just reply to it so that the members can say hello and introduce themselves to you.

You won't have had time to look yet but you will find that link you have given in our Equipment Index.

Hi Bob and everyone else,

This is a future Hint and Tip from http://www.mremag.com.

Bob, I don't think you can beat this price!

An Electrostatic Grass Tool – for pennies!
By Nevile Reid (Tunbridge Wells)
An earlier hint mentioned electrostatic grass using a make it yourself electronic application tool. The Noch 'GrasMasters' could be expensive for some. However, do not let these small inconveniences stop you having a go at static grass. There is a very simple, cheap and obvious alternative which works, well, nearly as well!
Do you remember those long ago days of childhood when a party balloon, having been rubbed on your clothing, could be 'stuck' to the wall as if by magic? Well, that is static, and if you pass a suitably rubbed balloon half an inch or so above your static grass immediately after you have dispensed it, hey presto the grass stands up! You could pass on saying some magic words though, tempting as it might be!
