Is there a materials supplier section?
Hello,

Was wondering if there was a reference somewhere here where the main contributors have posted a list of suppliers for materials? I thought that it would be handy for everyone to have a nice, concise list for those needing supplies to build the various projects being attempted here. I know Googling makes this a much easier task nowadays, but you can't always find the good deal or the right product, so to speak. Thanks!!

Hi Wade. That's a good idea, but nothing currently exists. Two often mentioned would be http://www.mcmaster.com for fittings and check valves and Lowes for Roebic drain cleaner and bubblers (lawn sprinkler part used to adjust vacuum).

If we can keep this list restricted to material sources only and keep the dialog to a minimum I'll make it a sticky.

At some Home Depot's and at some Lowe's the plates will be ferrous. So take a magnet with you to check. If so, go to the other store.

If I understand correctly, we do not want a magnet to stick to it?

Correct, magnetic = ferrous = NOT what you want.

Plates I got at a northern IL. Lowes were labeled as 304SS. I think this should be the min. grade used.

Remember, once you let the smoke out of the wires, you can't ever get it back in !

The plates I got from Menards have 302 stamped on the back. They are not magnetic, but do you think I will have problems with them?
