    FS Leedal thermostatic temperture control unit

    As I've been gathering equipment to build out my new darkroom, I have ended up with duplicates of some items. Today the build out reached a point where I decided that I will not use this unit. It was difficult to pass this one over but how many control units does one need?

    This is the Leedal Thermostatic model, with a volume control dial on the cold supply line, a triangular central temperature control knob, a 5" temperature gauge, a shutoff valve, and an anti-siphon valve on the outflow. Classic '60s plumbing aesthetic.

    I have not pressure tested this unit, so it may need some disassembly and some new sealant on the threads.

    The worst feature is that the glass on the gauge is cracked. It won't affect functionality. There's also a bit of rust on the shut-off lever, I will see if I can clean that up tomorrow.

    Theres a lot of brass in this unit so I expect that it may cost me $20 to ship. I haven't made time today to photograph it, but will if anyone is interested or I'm looking for something to do tomorrow.

    $90 PayPal includes CONUS shipping. International shipping possible after I determine what it will cost to get it to you.
    If you call it a "prime lens" because it's a fixed-focal length (i.e. not a zoom lens), then as Inigo Montoya said so eloquently, "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means."

    I hope that this suffices for tonight. There is a nipple on the warm supply side that I haven't taken off yet but will.
    The house temperature is 65 degrees F now, so I expect that it's calibrated pretty accurately. There is an adjustment screw on the back of the gauge that rotates the face.
    USPS Money Order would be fine.

    Note: I tried to hold it up at arms length to take a photo (why I don't know) and had to lay it on the floor because I couldn't hold it steady.

    I have not used or pressure tested this unit.
    There are no markings that I can find anywhere indicating model. Sorry for that.
    The supply inlets are 5 1/8" on center, +- 1/32".
    Another detail that I just noticed, the inlets and volume controllers are separate castings, threaded into the central temperature control housing. This is a well crafted piece of brass. If it doesn't sell, maybe I will use it after all. That gauge is pretty easy for my eyes to read.

    Well i'm not worried about rebuilding or maintaining, it's more about avalability of parts.

    If it works, maybe not accurately but with the usual maintenance problems typical for these old water tempering valves i'd concider it.

    But as i said parts availability is most important and a deciding factor.

    Some googling produced two possible numbers based upon description but not photos. Try 3629 or 3630.

    Have a look at Leedal's website. It looks like they can provide parts:
