    I'm looking for a 2-3m tank and stand in the Durban/KZN area preferably with min scratches.... leaks are no prob.

    Not looking for a corner tank.

    Tank and stand really... I have all the equipment, the only thing i need for a bigger tank is a bigger chiller.
    But if it comes at good price i can always sell equipment to defray costs.... ;)

    Why not just get a new tank and stand made. The main investment is in the equipment, so not really saving much by buying a second hand tank.

    i have prices calculated for 10mm glass at about 800 per sqr to work out to about R4000 for a 2m by 600 tank then sqr tubing for a stand is a 34/m so after galv and weld consumables it will be about R5000... Sometimes there are big tanks on here for half that... So just got the feelers out and feeling...

    Dude I think you got quoted the wrong price for glass.

    I built a 1500x750x750 tank out of 10MM including all bracing and it only cost me like a grand. I think it was R800 a Sheet of glass maybe (which is huge.)
    I cut this myself. I Know cut to size is fliping expensive !!!

    and I build my own stand from 38X38 square tube 2mm and sent for galvanising cost me R120p/6M length. so like R600.

    I think 2400X1200 10MM it was R850 per sheet when I bought about a year ago.
    I bought this from TonLee Glass in Durban and I cut it myself on there premises.
    but they can cut and polish it for you as well if you like but it gonna cost extra.

    Give them a shout I am sure you will get a good price. they speak poor english so little difficult to deal with
