I am now back for a while. Had a few days of non-stop work with two jobs, then some work travel and then a vacation. So now I am rested and recovered some from the work. I have to finish up a few orders that are not quite done yet, and then I will try to catch up with the messages. Thanks to everyone who helped me get most things completed before I got too busy or was traveling.

I am starting back on the books. I am trying to make a list of just a few of the books I have to give away shortly, there are about 5 boxes sorted through so far. As an example, I have many books on toxicology, lab safety, PC basics, macs and Mac programming, powerpoint, photoshop, and more in the current pile. I also have some softer science books on decision making, science policy, and environment.

It will take up to a year to sort through them all, but I am trying to get some lists together of things, as like the glassware, I cannot even get to the boxes of books on the bottom and back of the pile yet, so the sooner I get rid of some, the more I can look through. To give some perspective, one of the piles is boxes 4 deep, 4 high and 3 wide, each 18" cubed. I also have already filled 4 large bookcases, but not yet made a list of all of them. It is daunting, even through I work part time in the book business. Many of these books are older and don't have a barcode or ISBN number on the back, so they are harder to make a list of.

I have lots of assorted items like that, some are listed, some I only have one or two of many types, like volumetric pipettes, so I have not listed them well, as each one is different. I still have lots of columetric flasks, some melting point tubes (I think 100 for $3 or 2 tubes of 100 for $5 was what I asked last time.). I only have a few boxes of pasteur pipettes left. I do still have a lot of manual small volume pipettors like the Gilson variety, from 10 ul up to 5 or 10 ml. I have lots of 200 ul ones along with tips, only a few 1 ml ones left. I just need to get the time to catalog them all.

Looking forward to the books! Will these be put on ebay too, or just the typical U2U transactions?

The books will be listed here and the postage paid via Paypal or such. My friend Ed and I will list some of the more valuable books on Amazon, but he does not have space to list them all, so the ones he cannot keep will be put on a list here. Not sure how to do that neatly, but something like the list below.

The first number is the ISBN number, then the title, author, and what box it was in (helps me find it). If you want to see more about any book. jut cut and paste that number into Amazon's search window and look for it. Once I get a more orderly list, I will attempt to create an Excel spreadsheet as well, and make a link, but it is just not ready yet. A few of these have already go to local teachers, all items will be subject to prior donation. This is only a small sample, I still have dozens of boxes to look through.

I received my order of 14/20 flasks etc from Dr.Bob today. Everything arrived unscathed and it's looking great. Thanks again Dr.Bob! :)

Can't wait to get the rest of my 14/20 equipment in from China so I can make use of them.

I found a box of more small glass bottles recently, almost al with Teflon lined caps, and I would like to sell them to get them out of my way. I have more 125 ml amber quarpak bottle with Teflon caps, some 120 ml wide mouth clear Qorpak bottles, some 2 oz bottles, and some clear square bottles with Teflon caps in ~3 and ~6 oz sizes. For anyone who wants a variety of bottles, I can do a package of 10 of them now for $16, plus a few other samples. The shipping would be $12 for flat rate priority mail (total of $28), or slightly less for east coasters. If you want 20 bottles, the shipping via flat rate box would only be $16, so a total of $48, and I will fill any space left with vials. I will adjust the mix to your needs, as best as I can.

I have a few broken hot plate/stirrers left, but have not yet checked them to see if fixable. I will get to them eventually, but just too busy right now to get it finished. But I will likely get a few fixed eventually.

Here is the latest list, I am running completely out of 24/40 flasks, and many sizes of media bottles, filter flasks, and erlenmeyers. If the list says 0, then I am out for now. I am also backed up a bit on orders, I have a few people I need to answer requests on, so it may take a little while to answer messages, so sorry.

Thanks to everyone for there patience and help in finding this stuff a home.

I have had a number of people ask about glass flash chromatography columns recently, and they were scattered across a few places, so I have recently tried to gather most of them and take some photos. I have already sold a few of them, but still have many left, even more than pictured. There are several types, 24/40 jointed tops, S35 jointed tops, and a few other types (open top, 29/42, threaded, S50, etc).

I sell single columns for $10 per 1/2 of diameter, but if you are willing to buy a set of 4 or more, I will offer a discount, typically a set of 4 or 5 for $100 total, depending on size and complexity. If anyone is willing to buy the ones without built in frits (they require a piece of glass wool and a layer no sand on the bottom before the silica gel is added) I will go even lower in price, just contact me with your wish list and I will make a price. I do also still have a few air flow controllers for the S35 columns as well; I would include one with a set of 4 or more.

Here are some photos of them

Folks,

I want to ask anyone who is waiting on me for a response to please remind me of what you are waiting on. I have been very busy, and as well, I have had a number of people ask me about things and many then haven't gotten back once I sent them a message back or never paid once invoiced, so I have a growing pile of stuff that I have gathered for people, and I am having a hard time keeping track of so many orders, some of which I pulled months ago, and have not heard back about. The u2u system is hard to search or sort, and I have about 3000 messages there, so some of the older messages are harder to find. Sorry for the delays, but I am just getting a lot of piles of stuff built up.

Here is an updated copy of the remaining inventory. I am running out of many more items, but also found a few items to add, like 2 2L sep funnels, 2 250 ml addition funnels, and some brand new oval stir bars in a couple of sizes. Still have some brand new Pyrex 250 ml beakers for cheap as well. Pretty much out of 24/40 flasks (I have a few flat bottom ones left, not listed yet, ask me for those), still have many 14/20 sizes left.

I also found a few 2L glass stoppered reagent bottles, many have small chips on the top edge of the stopper but are otherwise, fine. I would be willing to take offers on them, they are bulky and I would like to get rid of some, but they are heavy to ship, so best for east coast or with other items to keep the postage low. Also still have a few 2000 ml grad cylinders with glass stopper tops.

Just found some more sep funnels, addition funnels, and some 3 neck rbfs. Still trying to make a list to add to the inventory. Also found a box of 29/42 glassware, lots of 3 necks, some condensers, adapters, and addition funnels. And I have found enough parts to assemble some more 14/20 distillation kits as well.

Still have some brand new Pyrex 250 ml beakers for cheap as well. Pretty much out of 24/40 flasks, but have many 14/20 and just found a box of 29/42 rbfs plus almost an entire distillation kit in 29/42 if anyone would be interested in that, I can assemble a pretty nice setup which would work from 250 ml to 3+L. Also still have a bunch of crimp top serum bottles, caps and a 20 mm crimper, more vials, some silica gel cartridges, HPLC vials, and more.

I can ship to Europe and other countries, up to 4 pounds is pretty easy, costs up to $40 for 4 pounds, depending on location, so only practical for smaller or lighter items, like 14/20 kits, vials, smaller adapters and items, anything light. If you tell me what you are looking for, I can estimate the postage. It is not practical for heavy items like filter flasks, inexpensive items like beakers or test tubes (the postage is more than the item), or electronics (since most are 110V, 60 Hz for US use).

Need help regarding lab equipment




OK so I have a problem in my country its very annoying to obtain even some of the most basic chems (thank you meth heads) nitric acid allso is incredibly difficult to get my hands on believe me I have tried at least a dozen ways but due to tight restrictions and high prices it can't be purchased for the casual hobbyist.
I have tried excuses such as for etching or cleaning jewlery but no luck other than company's who ask ridiculous prices eg one company told me they would at $120 for 500ml of 70% I mean who the fluff charges that.

This means of course I have to make my own which is actually one of the things I enjoy about science even if the gov says I can't have it I can.
Its kind of like a big F U if you will .

Any who getting back on topic I have run out of the nitric I had stashed from eBay but it will no longer ship to NZ so I must make my own.
I intend to use the nitrate salt sulphuric acid distillation method.
Thing is I'm new to buying distillation kits and was wondering are the cheap Chinese made no brand ($100 and under) kits any good for this purpose they do have some boro ones and are sold on eBay quite cheaply.
if not could somone please point me in the direction of a kit that will ship to NZ at a reasonable price.

Final question my acid was stored in an borosilacate bottle but since these are rather pricey particularly the ones with gg stoppers could I get away with beer bottles or in other words are all types of glass acid resistant or just boro? Google dosent seem to be able to awnser this question to my satisfaction.

if so then as far a caps go I'm thinking either spray the cap with tefflon lube and let evaporate and reapeat to form a coating or tefflon tape around threads will either of these work ?
If it helps the concentrations I intend to store will be HNO3 65-70% and H2SO4 70-98% for no longer than six months standing in a tub filled with sodium bicarb.

Any input would be appreciated.

I don't know what hurdles you will have to jump to import glass to NZ. I know what happens this side of the ditch.
My experience of Chinese glass is good but I think you might run into trouble if you go for ultra cheap.

Bottles? My WFNA is in a small amber bottle previously used to hold peroxide. It has a teflon cap. No issues thus far.

Beyond that, a lot depends on what you are using your lab for and what quantities you are working with.

I just took photos of some more distillation glassware for someone, and thought I would post them here as well.

Top left and right is 14/20 dist heads, bottom left are 24/40 dist head and 24/40 receiver. Bottom right are 14/20 short paths and another simple distillation head. I'll try to post more photos soon.

I have finally assembled a few more 14/20 kits now; they will likely be my last kits, as I am running out of the pieces, I had to buy and trade a few items to make complete kits. They each include about 10 flasks, from 5-250 or 500 ml, a mix of 1, 2, or 3 neck rbfs, and a few pear or recovery shaped ones. They also have a dist. head, claisen adapter, curved vacuum inlet, straight vac adapter, therm adapter, gas inlet, simple liebig condenser, 14/20 glass stopper, powder funnel, and a few other odds and ends. That kit costs $100 plus about $10 for postage within the US. Postage to Europe is about $40, that is pretty high, and limits the size of flasks and the total weight to 4 pounds.

I can additionally add an addition funnel (10, 25, or 50 ml, $20), coil condenser ($20), filter funnels, fraction collectors, or many other pieces (see photos or spreadsheet). Every kit is slightly different, so if you want certain things, let me know and I can try to customize it. I am a little backlogged right now on orders, but should catch up soon, and these are mostly ready to pack and ship, so I can ship them quickly. And I still have many 14/20 flasks in certain sizes and styles, but am running out of some sizes again.
