Suggestion: Classifieds Thread

Postby BrianScott » Thu Apr 16, 2009 4:46 pm

I'm suggesting a thread that users can post request for parts, items, second-hand kind of things... even put items up. There are tons of buy used and sell used sites and companies already out there, but none of them deal with salvaging parts.
Like at the moment I'm looking for a replacement belt for a incubator shaker, and having a hard time finding one besides the over priced supplier replacement.
I also have a bunch of broken equipment that I could salvage for someone else in need of replacement parts for their working equipment.

I see the thread mainly being filled with request for replacement parts and people replying if they have the part. Sort of like a craigslist.

Might have better luck on eBay.
Generally speaking, the more people talk about "being saved," the further away they actually are from true salvation.

you're joking right?

No joke.
I have a broken belt and have searched for some place that I could simply buy a belt instead of a parts package through the manufacture. I can't find anything. I figure I frequent this site enough as other people do I could post something like this:
In Need of Replacement Belt.
Belt size:
Length ~78.25cm (30.8inches)
Thickness -0.6cm (0.25inches)

Incubator Info:
Innova 4080
NBS part # for the belt is P0700-5242

And then maybe someone would see it and post "I have a broken incubator where the belt is still intact... I have no plans for it, so I'll sell it"
could happen... could not.

I don't see how you view this as a joke. It is a decent idea and people would use it as a place to try to find salvaged parts.

I certainly agree that it's a decent idea; I just think you'd have better luck on eBay.
