    One important suggestion. Be patient. I found a 9 ft stainless sink on eBay in Dallas which was a 4 hour drive, however it was priced right and included an archival print washer, a Zone VI 5X7 enlarger with lenses, etc. After I bought this one. a six ft one turned up for free and was local. Both were on Craigslist. Keep looking, you will find what you need. Bill Barber

    I know I have seen them show up on craigslist around here from time to time.

    There is even one in the APUG classifieds, if you don't mind a drive over to Livonia, MI:

    I drove down to Kentucky to get my essentially-free Kreonite sink!

    I second the "wait for it" approach - I saw 2 fibreglass sinks (Ottawa, Canada, and Niagara Falls, Canada) before I found one that I could use - a Delta 2x4 sink with all the fittings. It took about a year for one small enough to use to come up. (two different towns - but my parents live in one, I'm in the other - people selling sometimes don't mind holding on to things for a few weeks if you are travelling)

    I did pay about 40% of retail price for my sink, but got lots of stuff thrown in for free - so in the end I think I got a really good deal.

    fyi, I look in ottawa.kijiji.ca and a local used-ottawa.com site. Craigslist seems pretty slow here. Keep your eyes peeled, and look in different places.

    You might try what I did and that was to check out a restaurant supply place that specializes in reclamation of equipment. I found a 16'x3' stainless dry table for $75 and two deep stainless sinks for $50 apiece and $30 to have the sinks cut and re-welded to bring them up to the depth I wanted. The sinks are in SS tables with drains and I had to do some modification to them to get them the way I wanted. You should have it better in your area because of a lot of restaurants either going under and closing or doing booming business and remodeling.
    Thy heart -- thy heart! -- I wake and sigh,
    And sleep to dream till day

    Of the bawbles that it may.
