    Someone mentioned being able to get TEA locally. Where is it available, and does it have another name for another use?

    Jim, I find TEA (Triethanolamine) very convenient to buy from The Chemistry Store via the internet. TEA is not a Hazmat and The Chemistry Store ships it via UPS Ground.

    $10.00 a quart and $16.81 per gallon plus shipping

    Jim, I don't know where you're located, but that could make a difference in the cost of shipping the TEA to you. I get my chems from Artcraft as they are only about an hour from me and UPS is low cost. Formualry is also good as is tom's suggestion of the Chem Store.
