It says you have to log in to view pricing, so I'm not sure you can order it directly or as a single unit, but they're also for sale on eBay here: http://www.ebay.com/itm/NEW-MICROWAV...-/280859710761

I actually got it from a "True Value" Hardware Store here in California. Sorry for the error. I hope this helps!

"I used 3" of 1/2" braided tubing to hold mine in place and it is held snugly. "

Where did you get the tubing from? Home depot?

Yes. In the brass fittings/plumbing section where you would get parts for bulkhead assemblies (like barb fittings, PEX elbows and pipe nipples).

Home Goods had a 12 inch aluminum pizza pan. Hopefully its deep enough, there was no depth. I think its at least 0.4 inches. It was only 5 bucks. Started drilling. It isn't as pretty as pics on page one since i was eyeballing my lines with a little ruler help.

I think the idea is to cut it lengthwise and slip it over the edge of the FB.


Nevermind... I was thinking about a different FB thread. Sorry.
