Do you have "home science tools" on the list yet? Their target group is homeschoolers, so they sell a lot of small amounts of things:
I apologize if you already had it in the list.

I need some reagent grade anhydrous acetone and I live near NYC.


What's the best way to look up local chemical suppliers? Google Maps?

Yeah I think the owners were transferring to a new host or something like that. At the time of my post the /whois lookup had extremely minimal/bogus data. Regardless, I've placed 2 orders with them since then and had items arrive quickly and without fuss so it's much of a muchness.

Hi-Valley Chemical, Inc.
http://www.hvchemical.com

They have quite a few hard to find chems, like perchloric acid, hydrofluoric acid (70% IIRC), benzene, THF, Sodium Borohydride, etc.

AND THEY SELL TO HOBBYISTS!

Carolina Biological Supply won't sell chemicals to you - not even sodium chloride, but they have good high-school lab level lab supplies and prices (for a non-Chinese outfit). I comment on them especially because I have done business with them off and on for a long time.

There are other pottery places also. Seattle has an excellent raw material selection, but some others fill in with additional items, and other price point choices:
Aardvark Clay & Supplies (local to me)
Axner Pottery Supplies
U.S. Pigment

Firefox Enterprises has some good stuff. Phosphorus pentoxide for example.

Hello all,

After many years of struggling to purchase or obtain chemicals and apparatus in Australia, I have decided to start my own business (Argent Scientific) and help others in the same boat.

My main interests are organic, photographic and pyrotechnic materials but I am a student of chemistry (Macquarie University, Sydney) and have a reasonably good knowledge of many other areas.
I have been selling various glassware and apparatus on eBay for the last few months (analogphotoau) to test the water and I have been surprised by the number of people buying for the purposes of home brew beer/wine, kombucha making and so on.

I am curious to know what materials or apparatus people are interested in buying.

Any suggestions or ideas are highly appreciated.

Feel free to send me an e-mail via sales@argentscientific.com or post something here

I have a registered business (ABN: 81 548 161 010) and I am a member of the Royal Australian Chemical Institute, Royal Society of Chemistry and American Chemical Society.


Thanks in advance,

Andrew

I have had a couple of orders from auschems. Good experience both times. adk who is starting up a new chem supply business spoke favourably about them also. Give them a call and find out what the glitch is.

Not quite sure what your question actually is here, but I will try and answer.
I have dealt with auschems. Good experience.
adk is based in a different city. He has been selling photographic equipment for a while and is currently expanding and receiving a lot of positive comments from SM members. His business goes under the handle of Argent scientific.
I don't have an affiliation with either of them.

I hope that answers your question.

For fire brick suppliers, add http://www.refractory-brick.com. They have very good prices, and they also stock offer industrial ceramics and ceramic fiber products. The only thing that sucks is you have to send your RFQ by email.
