Where can I get a flow bech for res. $

I'm in the market for a good CHEAP new/uesd flowbench. Anyone know where I might find one? Not 100% on how much they cost but willing to shop around. Stopped by Westech in calgary here, but they're not the westech I was thinkin'. Anyway, who's got one? how much are they? and uh do you want to sell me it?

I may also be interested in a Sunnen CK10 hone for the right price.

Search through old issues of Popular Hotrodding from the late 70's. They had a set of plans and instructions to build your own.

I was reading through an old mag at my buddy's house years ago and found a how-to-build homemade flowbench article, hen he lost the mag in stacks and stack of mags he has.

I would like to just buy one depending on the price. I'd trust it's accuracy a little more.

Ummm why do you want one?

If you think Westech is all over the world you need to stop reading auto mag's.

And you cant affored a PROPER one.

homegrown

The Pop/rod article on homemade flowbenchs was written by David Vizard, he's written plenty of books with this info included. I think the late great Smokey may have drawn one up too.

I bought my plans from here...

http://www.mercdog.com/motorsports/

Also lots of good info here for the home builder...

http://www.tractorsport.com/cgi-bin/.../ikonboard.cgi

I have the cabinet finished and the orfice plates... There is alot of time doing research to build your own bench.... If you follow there plans ,build it all your self i think you can have a fair bench in the $500 range.... I am spending the extra $$$$ to by good manometers, and good 220v motors....

If you ever find a ck-10 thats a good deal let me know because sunnen equipment is always priced high even for used, because of the quality... There is a company called chindlund ( spelling?) that sells brand new power hones for around $5000....I doubt You will never find a used ck-10 for that price....

K star, How's the bench coming? I never saw your reply. Were all the parts to build it hard to find, mail order stuff?

Is there a place to get a standard orifice that flows a known amount at a certain humidity and bar? Smoething like a micrometer standard. With which I could test a bench, were I to build one.

Benches are damn expensive bommer, more than I'm WILLING to spend.
I want one to bake cakes in.

PTS Flowbench Technology is pleased to now offer a set of DIY Flowbench Plans based on the best info found on the World Famous Flowbench Forum

The flowbench plans are highly modifiable and can be built on a budget by searching for used parts or you can purchase all new parts. It uses 2-8 vacuum blowers and is based on digital gages but water gage manometers can be fabricated (no info supplied in the plans but info can be found on the flowbench forum). The plans will be fully supported on the forum for users who purchase a copy.

Also be sure to checkout the Flowbench Parts we also offer such as orifice plates, small radius velocity probes to fit in the smallest ports and other parts to help in your flowbench build or use.

Don't just dream about owning a flowbench . . . using the Flowbench Forum info* anyone can build an accurate and repeatable bench . . . it really isn't some "Dark Secret"

*Info found on the Flowbench Forum is free!
