Does anyone have any experience with Peter Pugger ball mill jars?  What quality are they?

They make good stuff but I doubt they actually make these jars.I think they must just sell them.

Any suggestions on where would be the cheapest place to buy one of these jars?

I would call or e-mail them (Peter Pugger in Ukiah Ca.) and ask for a list of dealers-Clay -king-com is one

I know the factory sometimes  has a few refurbished machines maybe a few jars  if you ask?

I live 3 hours away from them one way.

I saw some Norton ball Mill jars on sale at LabX years ago. You just need to browse around.
Peter Pugger is a good manufacturer but I didn't know they made ball Mill jars. Norton was one of the early manufacturers of Ball Mill jars.

Look at rock tumblers at harbor freight. These are about a quart size volume.

I have built myself a tumbler rack  for my potter's wheel very similar to the one that Shimpo makes. The most critical difference between mine and there is mine cost about a $1.5 and there's lists at $480.  I'm looking for a cheap 5 L milling Jar to fit it.

 

I will give the Peter Pugger company a call on Monday to see what they have.

 

Thanks for the input.

Saw some ball mill pebbles and jars on Ebay. Not bad prices. $19 for 10 pounds of pebbles.
And a larger jar for $169 smaller $149. They also went up in prices depending on the source.
