Hi all, I'm going to start making my own phosphate reactor and was wondering if anyone knows of where to buy a acrylic cylinder from?
Any help would be grateful.

Cheers Joey

Yep, I use http://www.clearplasticsupplies.co.uk/

Great bloke, very helpful and will cut for you. He also supplies plastic discs to top off with, but they aint on his site, you will need to give him a ring.
Why do left-over nuts never match left-over bolts?

250mm would be ideal as it will only be used for carbon
