I'm looking to put in a small extraction system into my workshop and I'd rather go with metal than plastic simply because it will be more robust.

The only people I can find that supply the metal fixtures are Axminster. Given that their plastic fittings are c 2x that of D&M for ostensibly the same part eg 100mm Y piece D&M £5.99 / Axminster £9.64 :? I am led to believe that there may be cheaper suppliers of the sam e products out there.

Anyone able to help please?

Thanks

Tim

Thanks - just had a look at their site - no prices though - did you just give them a list of requirements to quote on or did you get them to come up with a system layout for you?

Cheers

Try the good old yellow pages, theres plenty of duct suppliers out there. The amount you want for a small workshop my be just lying around in thier skips, they will usually have all the joints and fittings to hand.

Old i have emailed this company 3 times in the last month for advice/prices etc and they have not answered one of them.
Yet their website states "WHO CARES" We care and we have the resources and experience to do so effectively. Well their thoughts on customer care are obviously different from mine.

Also as Tim states there are no prices on their site but if you remember when you first gave us the link to this site (a month or so ago) you pointed to how cheap per metre their metal pipes were £3 something. I wonder why they removed this? I have tried to search for your previous post but i cannot find it, do you remember when you posted it?

Regards

Woody

Tim,
Suggest you phone the Bristol branch. Good service, rapid delivery and half the price of Axminster!

Tim,

When I phoned CCL at Bristol, they automatically offered me a 20% discount. Suspect that you may have to ask for the discount if you go to the trade counter.

Cost of 125mm duct after discount was £10.46 + vat per 3 metre length, and 125mm Blast gates cost £15 plus vat.

Good luck

David

david,

Didn't get to them in the end but they are sending me the catalogue. Now I know that they offer 20% as standard I will clearly have to push them for 30% :twisted:

Cheers

David as you will see from the above link that Adam kindly found they were only charging £5.81 m2 for 100mm (and showing on their website) about a month ago.

Regards
