Lab equipment and glass where needed:used


I am just starting to get seriously into chemistry… I bought several quick study guides and a few textbooks. I need lab equipment and glassware. I thought, instead of giving my money to China… maybe someone here, their hobby is sun setting??

A bit about me :). I am interested in creating new compounds and duplicating research paper results. Soon, the plan is to do some unique YouTube videos which I am very excited about. I am also interested in neurobiology, aging science, and materials science.

Hope someone is out there who wants to pass their hobby on :)

see if Zephyr has stuff left. I've dealt with him before over the years and always been a good experience,.

there are a number of good companies in the US.
The Science Company is relatively local to me, so I have a preference for them.
https://www.sciencecompany.com/default.aspx

There is advogadro lab supply but they are expensive:

Home science tools sells kits and a lot of useful stuff, they provide all of the equipment for Thompson's book:
https://www.homesciencetools.com/product/vacuum-distillation...

Carolina has gotten pretty useless as they no longer ship much to individuals.

I am sure there are others but these are the ones off the top of my head.

Where are you located, Mineman? If west coast, then Zephyr is ideal and closer for shipping costs. If you are East coast, I might be able to help you with some things, I have a fair amount of glassware still left for cheap prices.

Thank you! It’s a affordability issue however.

I can do either. I suppose I am looking for a mentor who wants to pass down some of their hobby to a enthusiast learner, rather than a glass supplier.

If you can say where you are, it might be easier to get a mentor. If you were near NC, I would be happy to help, but can't do as much to help if you are 2000 miles away.

My first mentor was the person who I got this glassware from, and I have helped a few people in your situation, but mentoring someone is much easier when close.

I might be ready to do that soon when I go public on YouTube, but… I am still incognito for now until a few personal messages.

Uh, nothing wrong with wanting to be anonymous. But telling people your state or city doesn't allow the viewers of this forum to identify you.
