View Full Version : Problem finding parts at Lowes

11-14-2005, 04:18 PM
The parts listed below were not easily located at lowes, some even said to not exist(the steel sleeve)

215724 3/4"x1"x2" Bronze sleeve (get steel if they have it) $4.56

136469 3/4"x1"x2" Steel sleeve (used in place of the bronze sleeve) $3.02

213981 8-32x3/8 button head screws 6 for $1.43- Can buy from us for $0.20 each

115971 1"x3/4" pvc reducer $0.98

Perhaps the item numbers are incorrect? The numbers at the local store only went up to 5 digits from what I could tell.

Thanks for your help!

steel sleeve thing is in that part section with all the hard to find screws, set screws and all that other stuff it is a SPACER look for that name and the PVC reducer is not in the pvc plumbing row go check the ELECTRONIC CUNDUITS you will find it there as for the screws just use any 8-32 or 10-32 they do not have buttin head philips or flat head works just fine

i have made several for friends so i found out on my own where the stuff was no one at lowes could help. if you get everything togather and works the way you want. i would sugest trying customsaber shops blade holders he make. they seem to hold the blade a bit better with less side to side movement. and it is just a few bucks more then buying the reducer, spacer, washer. and works a hell of alot better well worth the bit extra cash. this stuff is tops

I can't use one of his premade blade holders, because I custom-made a emitter shroud and foolishly pre-drilled holes. [xx(] So yeah, I'm either gonna have to scrap it (no way) or adjust the design to fit in with mine. So I'll just have to adjust it.. I'd love it if I could get a no-screw-holes version of the blade holder, but even so, I don't think I have the equipment to drill and tap it.

I had to goto Home Depot to find the sleeves and reducer.
