Buying winestoppers

I'm gong to make a bunch of these and wondered where you guys would get yours in bulk.



I've looked at a few sites.....Rockler, Woodcraft...Pennstate
But they don't really do bulk.
They get $5-6.00 each !!!
I need to be in the $2-3.00 range.

Secondly...I didn't realize there's a Food Grade Stainless and a Standard Grade Stainless.

Any thoughts on using one vs the other?

Thanks
Tom

Hi Tom.
Try here maybe she will give a bulk discount. I think I've seen others vendors carry these.

Penn State Industries (everyone's favorite shipper) gives the greatest discounts for bulk.

That bowl was perfect right up until that last cut...

Check out http://www.woodturningz.com/Wine_Bot...pper_Kits.aspx

They have a chrome tear drop stopper on sale for $2.50 and lower. I personally like the lower profile design of this style,it shows off more wood and less stopper.

Last time I ordered stoppers I order this style from Craft Supplies and paid $3+ for 100.

See what we offer at HandmadeWoodGifts and become a fan of our Facebook page

I wouldn't use anything but stainless if it used in red wine or vinegar. The plating will corrode, chip, or pit.
