Hey...I just wanted to remind people about things that can be found on Craigs List. Here's an example: http://losangeles.craigslist.org/tls/163774653.html

Thanks for the reminder. I find the interface annoying but you can find some good deals.

ps Congrats on reaching 1000

Thanks for the find Mike. Sent an email and may check it out or be the guinea pig for one. Asked if they're offering a discount on quantity... worth a shot, right?

Will post response.

I never knew those stuff was on craiglist! I only found ads for used aquariums.

Used aquariums are a good deal. However, make sure the aquarium actually holds water by asking for an on-site water test.

No discount but they have at least 5, and two are spoken for. Spoke to the father (not the seller) and apparently have to wait for the son (seller) to call back. May be picking up Monday. If anyone wants one and details after speaking to the son, let me know. Appreciate knowing what to look for besides obviously broken seals and such. Will ask any questions you'd like if you post them.

Thanks.
Joe

Here are pics of the two I got (other one is for a buddy and spoken for) in case anyone is considering it. The left (smaller) is all chrome (stainless steel?) and goes to 3000psi for input and 100psi on output. The right is half chrome and brass and goes to 3000psi and 30psi, respectively. Each has a needle valve that was thrown in for free. The stickers on the back still list the price of $151.58 each. Apparently they may need an adapter for whatever cannister and tubing diameter.

He has two left, one all brass and one 50/50 chrome/brass. He does not think he has any needle valves left. Dealt with the seller directly. Not planning on going back and so offer to pick up for others is gone, but he's a nice guy and easy to deal with. Says he got them from a government auction and they all work. I cannot test if mine works yet.
