Foster and Smith item help

Recommended Posts

In the last Foster and Smith catalog I got I found a tank viewing box, the kind you look down into the tank from the top with for about $25. It had blacked out sides and I was planning to order one. Somewhere along the line before I ordered it got thrown away, and they dont have it listed on their website that I can find. If anyone has the recent F&S catalog and finds this item listed, I would love to have the item number to be able to order it. I have been looking for one of these for months, and this is the first one I had found available for sale. Thanks. - Alan

You might be able to have one made for less than that without shipping too. Out on nine mile road there is a shop that does a lot of work with acrylics. I just can't think of the name of the place.

If you were leaving reefers paradise, go to nine mile and turn right. go under the overpass, past the home depot. Where the road goes down to one lane in each direction, maybe 1/4 mile or so later, the place is on the left. They have a small sign out by the road. They could probably make one for you very easily out of scraps they have. If not, get some scraps from them and some acrylic adhesive and make it your self.

After you cut the pipe, as even as you can, sand the face on a piece of sandpaper laid on a flat surface so that you can get it as smooth as reasonable so that when you glue the acrylic to it there is a minimum of voids for it to fill where potential leaks happen. When I did it my first attempt was a success so it must not be too hard! :lol:

It can be used to shoot photo's through too, and beats the heck out of $25 for a store bought one.

Of course you could take Hank's suggestion and make or get someone to make you one entirely out of acrylic if you needed it bigger than the 4" pipe for some reason, say you wanted to be able to fit your camera down into it so holding the whole thing is easier but for the price it's worth the try.

Good Luck!
