Hello everyone! I’m always on the search for a good quality plastic vial that are also cheap so I can send samples to my friends! The problem is that Chinese vials, while inexpensive, can be quite inconsistent and most of the time they will leak ink!
The best bang for buck for a long time were 5 ml vials on e-Bay from China with an o-ring to reduce the chance of leaking! It comes out to be 0.11$/piece.
While browsing for lab supplies I found 4 ml plastic vials that are 0.06$/piece (19 HUF) so half as much as the Chinese on eBay and they can be bought right here in Budapest! The catch is that the minimum order quantity is 2000 pieces!
Myself and @danielb can handle 500 pieces each, but we’re still looking for others for the remaining 1000 pieces! I’m posting this in hopes of gathering enough pledges so that we can purchase the minimum 2000 pieces! Since it’s sold by a company specializing in laboratory equipment (I already bought excellent quality glassware from them for ink making) I assume that these vials are equal or better quality than the Chinese ones.
Here’s the link to the vial if you would like to check it out!
Shipping is 1500 Ft which will be divided among all who participate in the group buy! I’ll personally hand over the vials at a Pen Meet or at a Metro Station like Kálvin tér, or Deák Ferenc tér.
Remaining 700 vials = 11688 Ft
Even if you can pledge only 100 vials that will also help greatly! Thank you!
