Sourcing parts

Post by tader » Fri Apr 10, 2020 6:58 pm

Just wanted to pass along my results sourcing parts and pieces for my builds. Many of the suggestions on this forum are out of date. These are current as of this week. These are US sources but they may ship out of country. I don't know, you would have to ask.

CSST. It was a problem finding ready to use (no coatings) csst. Here is a good place, every size and every fitting:
https://www.plumbingsupply.com/gasconnectors.html

Copper fittings: https://www.supplyhouse.com/

Supply house has very reasonable shipping for small orders. Over 99 bucks is free. Not hard to do if you're building a still or two.

boiler fittings: https://www.brewhardware.com/

All of these sources are friendly and will answer questions.

It was cheaper for me to purchase all my copper pipe from local plumbing supply houses. If I can find what I need in Montana USA I'll bet anyone in this country can find it too.

I bought all my ferrules, ptfe gaskets and clamps from Amazon. If you buy type M pipe all the 2" ferrules will fit inside perfectly.

Thank you for posting. Very helpful. Supply house beats Amazon on copper.

I just received a 5 gallon stock pot from websturant store the price and quality are amazing so I thought I would share a link.
I paid less than $60 for a 5 gallon stock pot that would have cost hundreds elsewhere. It is heavy.

Supply house is great, good prices, cheap shipping with fast turnover, and the variety of fittings allows you to get sleek builds with minimum parts. Highly recommended for all your copper plumbing, I just bought new parrot parts last night!

Not really "parts," but more for supplies/equipment: https://www.homebrewing.org/

This site has some of the most reasonable pricing I've seen, and FREE shipping for most orders over $50 (if it's big, bulky, or fragile, it may not qualify).

Great for brewers, vintners, and those of us who do "alternative" conversions...
