I have found acrylic at two wholesalers in the town where I used to live. I am not sure the size of your city but most larger cities will have materials available.Originally Posted by pelerin
As I recall, when I built my home built washer over twenty years ago the cost of materials was around $100. I bought my Zone VI washer used on Ebay for $350. So yes you can spend a fair amount on materials. I think new comparable washers are up in the $650 range now.
