Spy equipment


— Posted by MasterSpy on 11:31 pm on Nov. 7, 2001

I would like to know more about where to get spy tools for cheap. I am interested in learning where to find electronic devices used for spying, as well as un-electronical devices. Some of these devices include: night-vision gear, binoculars, hidden cams, tapping(bugging) devices, etc.

Hopefully this might interest you. I was trying to find a leak in a pipe so I was using a powder and circuit board cleaner which uses a fast evaporating solvent. Whatever fucking around we were doing with the circuit board cleaner I found that when sprayed on any kind of envelope grade paper it made it transparent, allowing for the contents to be read. About 20 seconds after spraying the cleaner had evaporated and the paper was back to normal with no sign at all of being tampered with.

Wow, that is very interesting. I have tried other methods of doing the same thing, however; everytime it seemed to smear the print or writing. Are you positive that this approach does not cause any smearing?


— Posted by balor on 6:31 pm on Nov. 9, 2001

It leaves the print totally untouched.I have tried it enough times and works perfectly everytime!


— Posted by MasterSpy on 11:32 am on Nov. 10, 2001

What is the name of the cleaning solution? Where can I buy some? Thanks.


— Posted by balor on 12:08 pm on Nov. 10, 2001

I dont have some at the moment but I will find out since I have to get it anyway for work.Tell you all sometime later in the week.


— Posted by MasterSpy on 3:04 pm on Nov. 12, 2001

Thank you Balor. We will all be looking forward to hearing what the name of this solution is.


— Posted by balor on 4:42 pm on Nov. 14, 2001

Right Masterspy Its called Freon spray. Its sold in industrial and electronic supply stores for cleaning contacts,circuit boards where a volatile solvent is needed.Your ordinary tool store wouldnt stock it as its a specialised item so you would possibly have to make a few inquiries with the help of a phone book.Its worth the trouble though.If they ask just say you need a quick drying solvent spray for cleaning circuit boards that seem to be contaminated with dirt,grime etc.


— Posted by dellexo on 8:16 pm on Nov. 14, 2001

Dont want to be a pain but are you sure the solvent you are on about is called FREON.Freon is a gas used in air con and other refridgeration procceses including fridges and frezzers,the gas(dichloro diflouro methane)is a chlorinated halogen gasi.e CFC which as you know have been banned from use back in the mid 90s.DO you know if this stuff you have is some type of replacment?if so do you know the name because i wouldn’t mind some myself cheers

I use Endust for Electronics Duster. Comes in a metallic blue can. Got it at Wal-Mart. Hold the can upside down then spray to your hearts content. I just got through reading some mail I plan on returning to sender. I hate bill collectors.
Steaming letters still works good if you are careful, and use a teapot. Not good on any mail that might have carbons inside. Remember, make sur when yu reseal the letter to press it in a book to remove the wrinkles.


— Posted by balor on 3:44 pm on Nov. 15, 2001

The company that make it are called Freon.Its about the only the thing they make in the line of solvents so its commonly known as Freon spray which might be inaccurate I know but thats whats its know as.If you live in the UK Tribol make a degreaser in a spray for cleaning circuit boards, maintaining electrical equipments contacts.Its just known as Tribol degreasing agent.Its in a black and white can.These can only be got from industrial supply stores again but my excuse from my last post applies to this product.


— Posted by MasterSpy on 12:22 am on Nov. 16, 2001

Thank you Balor and Ronin!!


— Posted by sectech on 5:14 am on Nov. 28, 2001

if you have a “discount auto parts” near u, u can get ti there under “electrical contact cleaner”. it wrks just fine.


— Posted by dellexo on 5:52 pm on Nov. 29, 2001

I think the chlorinated compound in this spray is called 111trichlorothane,can an y body confirm this thanks


— Posted by Dman on 9:51 pm on Dec. 14, 2001

why don’t you just open the letter?


— Posted by preditor on 3:13 pm on Dec. 18, 2001

Hey Dman you mean to tell me that your that dim


— Posted by Dman on 5:35 pm on Dec. 20, 2001

heck no…just when i get a letter, i don’t go all spy shit…i just open it


— Posted by balor on 5:47 pm on Dec. 21, 2001

Dman, there is a difference between opening a letter thats addressed to you and one thats not.This just tells you a way to look through the envelope of a letter thats not addressed to you so you can read the letter.
If you cant contribute something useful then kindly fuck off and quit making a total prick of yourself by posting a message that tells us all how you have shit for brains.


— Posted by kent82 on 2:04 am on Dec. 22, 2001

uhhh… can u actually see whats inside? i mean letters are normally all folded up and it would be a bitch to read but… if im wrong, which is most probable then some one just tell me cos im too fucken lazy to try that out for m’self.


— Posted by The Great Milenko on 11:56 am on Dec. 25, 2001

Holy shit, FREON!! omg!!! if you spray that shit in metal, say a lock then go and hit it with a hammer or such it would shatter it!!! i’ve been trying to find that shit in aus for a while!! were can i get some!! should i just bust open a fridge for some or what??


— Posted by The Great Milenko on 11:57 am on Dec. 25, 2001

LOL my my dim-man your not to sharp are you


— Posted by balor on 12:29 pm on Dec. 25, 2001

Rocol also make a degreaser called “Electra degreasing spray”. Its in a red tin with a yellow cap.It takes longer to evaporate than the Tribol spray.Available from the same industrial supply stores.


— Posted by boLEGGEDgal on 8:58 pm on Dec. 27, 2001

LoL… Ya’ll r 2 cute….. lol….
Peace Out!


— Posted by balor on 4:24 pm on Dec. 28, 2001

What the fuck was that about?


— Posted by kent82 on 6:18 am on Dec. 31, 2001

Hmm….boLEGGEDgal….It’s true that you shouldn’t be allowed to write posts/emails. Or even write at all. Or use tools, for that matter.


— Posted by largeidaccam on 2:59 am on Jan. 1, 2002

i second that


— Posted by balor on 4:10 pm on Jan. 2, 2002

Check out her interests-Shooting is there, She might just be ok!Check out her website,not the kind of woman to mess with though!


— Posted by The Great Milenko on 12:46 am on Jan. 3, 2002

Fuck i just checked out her site, fuck thats some cracky ass shit right there!!


— Posted by Dman on 11:25 am on Jan. 4, 2002

who you callin’ dim??

hey masterspy…if your a master….why are you asking all this shit???

something nearly as good as freon, can be got at dick smiths here in oz ,it’s just called freeze spray.


— Posted by moorey on 12:21 am on Jan. 26, 2002

thanks lifeanddeathmc… nice sig.

Freon is a trade name for a whole bunch of refrigerants made from halogenated hydrocarbons (chlorine- or fluorine-based). These are the CFC’s and HCFC’s that are happily eating away at our ozone. 🙂
They’re non-polar solvents, which is why they’re also used widely as degreasing agents in manufacturing and electronics… being non-polar they have the ability to act as a “wetting” agent without dissolving most other things that dissolve in water, which is highly polar… like ink, envelope glue and paper binders. 🙂 Sadly enough, some companies sell this stuff for the explicit purpose of reading letters w/o opening. Props for discovering it on your own, you’ll spend a lot less. The stuff can still be expensive tho’, particularly stuff designed for removing specific types of solder fluxes. Milenko, you may be thinking of something else… most school janitors carry a bottle of “gum remover” that is usually isobutane, propane, and sometimes some HFC’s. This is intended to freeze whatever it is sprayed on through adiabatic cooling when the gases expand at STP. Snag one from Willy the Janitor and you’ll get the 5-finger discount. Willy ‘ll find another. 😛 I don’t know what the lowest temperature you could reach is… but to shatter steel, you have to cool it to cryogenic temperatures. This makes the molecules slow down and align in a crystalline lattice, allowing an impulse like a hammer whack to “cleave” the material along a lattice plane. Higher carbon steel is less susceptible to this, since the carbon content makes the molecular structure less regular. This “toughness” is why HC steel is used in all sorts of blades, including military knives. It also makes the steel much more susceptible to oxidation (rusting)… but I’m heading off on a tangent to a tangent, so I’ll shut up now.

Yeah well i got it outta fight club, so i guess i was wrong, but what about somthing along the lines of LOX or liquid nitrogen? soz if this sounds kewl that i dont know about such things.


— Posted by socialconflict on 3:32 pm on Feb. 2, 2002

Where can I get some freon?  How is freon stored in a refrigerator because if it is easy to get to that would be a great resource.  Hell ya, Great Milenko, Fight Club kicks ass.


— Posted by qube on 4:23 pm on Feb. 10, 2002

Milenko, is it true that this Freon can drop metal to a temperature in which it can be shattered??? Sounds good. But back to the question of spy gear, you can buy excelent slippers in Army stores that are made from recycled newspaper and material (very cheap to buy) that you can sneak around in extremely quietly, being a spy is not about having expensive equipment, its the reliability of the equipment that will rise you above others.


— Posted by Zambosan on 11:18 am on Feb. 11, 2002

Liquid nitrogen is more in line with the temps you’d need to shatter metals.  LOX is far too reactive.


— Posted by Durf22 on 5:03 pm on Mar. 4, 2002

awsome shit


— Posted by XxBULAxX on 9:08 pm on Mar. 4, 2002

A cool camera you can get is that X-Cam that is advertised everywhere… This would be perfect for hidden survailence……

couldn’t you drill threw the lock instead of hitting with a hammer plus. Freon! thats dangerous stuff man i would advise you try to pick the lock before you do that stuff plus you don’t know what grade it is freon comes in like R12 and different types. {i must have watched fight club llike a million types milenko}


— Posted by weston on 11:41 am on Mar. 23, 2002

if you know someone dum enough to get it and hopefully you have a friend or you have remote access to a garage/automotive place because freon is put in cars for a cooling agent. It’s about 40 dollars a pound and its the second most thing smuggled across the mexican border. i don’t have a clue if they keep it at the garage but logically speeking i don’t think that they would have it there. NO harm just looking

dudes, does any one here know a good website that shows schematics on how to build fm transmitter bugs?


— Posted by Hergor on 11:22 am on Mar. 24, 2002

this one is good. i made three of them. they got a range of about 30 metres and work nearly without nasty ‘snow’…
