Links to parts sources- create or upgrade your own kit

Postby SunWizard » Wed Mar 19, 2008 9:50 am

Here are links to parts vendors where you can create or upgrade your own kit, and build your home filtering/dewatering system.

Try to limit this to short posts with links to the parts so they are easy to scan through. For example, not debating the merits of different parts in this thread. I will edit this post periodically so it contains all the links as new ones are added.

tractor parts counter

Postby djenkins6 » Wed Apr 02, 2008 7:32 pm

Your local Tractor Parts Counter or Agricultural Supplier has a store full of useful parts. They were great - spent about half an hour helping me choose the exact size and thickness of washer ( actually bearing shims ) to seal the hot water element in wvo centrifuge.

Thanks to Sunwizard for pointing me in the right direction. I had searched Lowes, Canadian Tire, Home Hardware, Princess Auto, Home Depot with no luck.
