Alcohol vat replacement. (Get a good one)

I had trouble with the original alcohol vats (they didn’t close!!!) so I purchased a replacement on Amazon.

I found these from Lock & Lock, they close perfectly and are the same size as the ones that come with the kit.

In case you are having the same issue, you can find them here:

Amazon.de EUR 10.99 (with Prime)

Amazon.com USD 13.77 (+ Shipping)

Perfect, I’m having the exact same problems - thanks a bunck for the link.

For those in the UK, this is the link for the same thing - http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B004LSQVPA?psc=1&redirect=true&ref_=od_aui_detailpages00

Great work @Nicolas_Gonzalez_Gar, I’ve been having the same problems as you two are having! and @Steve_Johnstone, thanks for the UK link. Will save me some shipping costs ;). Though I’ll see if I can find a similar product in The Netherlands.

For those who are mainly printing bigger items this might be a replacement vat: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Lock-3-9-Litre-Rectangular-Container/dp/B000KHRXA8/ref=sr_1_24?ie=UTF8&qid=1427799630&sr=8-24&keywords=lock+%26+lock

it’s 3.9 ltrs (dimensions: 23x16x16). I know I sometimes have trouble fitting my parts in the formlabs vat and have to turn it and wash it again because the top sticks out. Though I just realise that this would probably create issues with the tray which you use inside the box.

Here’s one I purchased at the Container Store for $14 USD. It has a gasket all the way around in the top lip with a cam action lock. Same dimensions on the sides and about 1-1/2" taller than the originals.

@Walter_Gillespie,

a link would be very useful :slight_smile: . I’ve searched their website but I can’t seem to find that container… :frowning:

Alex, sorry but I don’t have the label so I can’t find a part number. I was just looking around their store for something more like the original vats but they didn’t have them. They had a few the same size but this was the best for the price. If I get a chance to go down there in the next few days I’ll get the info on these.

Where did you get that strainer from? Is that part of the cleaning kits now? Looks a lot more solid than the one I’ve got.

Indeed, it doesn’t look like the one that comes with the kit.

Yes, that’s the strainer that came with my Form 1+ about a month ago. Wouldn’t mind getting a second one but they don’t list it as replacement parts… Are you listening FormLabs???
