Wanted to reach out and see if anyone on the forum would be interested in buying, in bulk, 3 piece ball valves in 304 SS. I have access to a large quantity that I am having made for myself, and could pass on a decent deal.

What kind of prices would everyone go for? Since I would have about 200 extra units to sell?

Cheers


Lucas

Am I missing something? Why would you have them made?

Was there a minimum order or something you had to meet to get what you needed?

I guess the clarification is that is more of a bulk buy, then having them made. The only thing custom is that I may have the rubber on the handle branded. Nothing big, just my own name.

So to clarify, this would be more of a group buy.

So I guess, my main questions is, what would be a good price to pay, since I may back out if its not that great.

mcmaster sells them for about 45 each, so what would be a good price for everyone to jump on board with me?

Cheers

Lucas

Group buys don't go over to well unless your a paying member.

And why 3/4" valves?

I'm going to have some 1/2", 3-piece valves, 316 stainless for sale at something like $22 each as a general reference. If you really need 3/4", you might be willing to pay a bit more.

Can't you just buy a custom handle boot and slip it onto any valve?
