Purchasing large amounts of solvents
« on: October 20, 2002, 08:05:00 PM »
Does anyone know where one could purchase large amounts such of 20 gals of the usual solvents? Im interested in stocking up on solvents,  but before i goto the hardware store and buy it from there in 1 gal cans i wanna know if i can get it in bulk without rasing eyebrows. 

What kind of places should i phone?

Can anyone help?

1. UTFSE
2. Industrial Supply Stores ussually sell both 5, and 55gal containers
3. Commercial paint supply stores ussually stock 5gal, and if big enough 55gal sizes
4. Most city dumps have a solvent reclaimation program and will be more then happy to give you whatever you need for free.
5. Get the DOT#'s off rhodium's site and make a trip to the local train yard with some 5 gallon pails -- never know what you might find.
6. Got to a hardware store designed for contrators mainly, and ask about 5gal sizes of solvents
7. Solvents are ussually less exensive then you think when bought by the drum.
8. That should get you started

I like the idea of borrowing from the local train yard :-)

Do the valves on the tanks need special tools to open or....?

Any info is apreciated.
