Default New Ebay seller with stir plates.

Just got my daily notice from Ebay on brewing supplies and equipment. There is a new seller marketing a home built stir plate for 49 bucks. He builds then himself and warrants them to work properly. It includes a stir bar and a keeper magnet for use when pouring. I can hardly build one for much less and even though I am retired my time is worth something. So Take a look around ebay if you get a minute. I deleted the email or I would include the link. Sorry
Bob

Found the link. Here it is:

I purchased my stir starter from him and I love it. He has a good reputation on this forum, as he stands behind his product.

Thank you Pstrohs,
I am usually a little leary about putting up links to ebay sellers because there are some shady characters out there. I'm glad this fellow is a good egg and is also a member here. I dont feel so bad about the link now. I'm working my way to all grain and yeast farming, but have to budget since I am diasabled and on a limited fixed income. I'll get there but it will take a bit longer and I will have to build as much as I can to save cash. Fortunately I am a welder/mechanic by former trade so that stuff is easy and I have the equipment to do all of that still.
Bob

I have one, and overall and especially considering the price I am satisfied with it. It will absolutely not pull a vortex through anything larger than a 2000 ml flask, and that just barely. It is a quality stir plate though

Thanks for the link. I've been planning on building one for quite awhile but I'll probably just buy one. FYI, he has them for $7 cheaper on his website, www.stirstarters.com

I just ordered one of these myself directly from stirstarters.com and he has a lifetime warranty and free shipping with a stir bar (1 inch) and a magnet to stick on bottom of flask when pouring so you don't lose it. It's also free shipping! Can't go wrong with that.

Oh and another thing... Don't try to put larger than a 1" stir bar on this place. It will never balance

Orders one yesterday with the 1 liter flask. Got an email reply to how I was going to add the flask quickly. All of the good press about his products and great customer service are right on. I really like doing business with straight up folks who dont waste your time with smoke and mirrors. So I will be a yeast farmer pretty soon. I think I am going to farm a few different strains and see which ones I like and give me the best flavor and least amount of headache. I am learning a ton too, and thats great for an old phart like me.
