Glassware is so expensive need help


I am looking for a 1000ml or 2000ml three neck flask with 20/40 fitting and a small thermometer/bleed neck included http://www.labdepotinc.com/Product_Details~id~330~pid~59215.... like this one.

I am also looking for a 24/40 addition funnel and a reflux condenser.

I am also looking for some different sized boiling flasks.

I already have a lot of high quality glassware that I have accumulated over time.

I have searched the web and I have found everything I am looking for except the prices are too damn high (I am trying to do this without eating into my savings very badly) like 100 ml boiling flasks for $50 wtf.

A few months ago I stumbled upon a site that had very reasonable prices but I can't find it anymore.

I need some help with finding reasonable glassware or I WTB from members on this site.

Any help would be appreciated .

Thanks !!!!:D

I am also wondering if you need angled necks to use an addition funnel plus a bunch of other stuff at the same time or will straight up and down work ?

Why the hell is everyone on this site so obsessed with buying glassware from large companies?!
Find a damn scientific glassblower/flameworker. They are the ones that make the stuff the companies later sell at a higher price. The water is purest at its source. They are the ones that can make you whatever you want.
Get him/her and say: "I want this and that, how much?" Problem solved.

Great deals on ebay EVERYWHERE.
as long as your not doing anything (majorly) illegal then you should be fine.

I found this site:
http://www.gpescientific.co.uk/laboratory-glassware-sale.php
but I'm very skeptical. A 10 pack of 24-34 adaptors for £4.42? A 10 pack of 500mL Erlenmeyer flasks for £1.32. A 10 pack of 500mL quickfit RB flasks for £3.25. Am I reading the site wrong or something? Those would be decent prices for single items but 10 packs, thats insane.

That probably means that they sell them in cases of 10, so the real price is 10 times higher. That is not uncommon for companies to do. That would be a reasonable price for some of those things. Depends what there shipping costs are, also.

Science is expensive! So are many other hobbies. Get ready to shell out

Of course if you enjoy it its worth it.

Be patient, there are tons of resources here and around the Internet

You have a point but I find that the high price is mostly due to vast profits and inflated value; so it helps a lot to be smart about this kind of stuff :D

That site looks interesting, I plan to do a bit more background research on the company. But at £13 for a 3l RBF which comes in a pack size of 1 that seems too good to miss.

anyone else heard of them before?

edit-

when you download theyre excel product catalog, it is named "surplus stock list" perhaps this is a bargain to jump on.

Here are some photos of a 1000 ml RBF with 3 necks and a 10/30 therm joint. I might one or two more like this somewhere, not sure, however. I would ask $30 for this one. It is in very good condition.

Here is a similar flask for comparison:
