    my mop sink.
    It didn't come with that 12" piece of black hose w/ the fitting so you can rinse out the mop sink, fill a mop bucket, etc.
    Went on ebay..... $88, $90, $75 some with ANOTHER $20 in shipping. WTF?
    8 cents of hose, a $1 fitting and.... $75-100?
    See Webstaurant has them for $25 which is.... palatable. Add another $13 in shipping...
    I'm getting real poor after this build.

    Thanks.
    That's what I'm going to do, but I thought the $25 (shipping aside) was somewhat reasonable.
    I mean $80 is the "we think you're an idiot" price.

    We've done a lot of fixes this way... even parts on our vehicles... its outrageous when you know you need a $1 part, I'd be willing to pay up to $10, but when they charge $50 bucks with a whole bunch of other parts not needed... well that's it I won't go down that alley!!!

    lol I have paid the idiot tax more than a few times. If I can help others not have to do it, it's a good day. Isn't that what this board is all about?!?!? :cool:

    You bet, and just did it.... oddly enough.
    Actually, have the blade to shorten the hose next to me.
    $6 brass fitting and $3 in hose.
    Thanks.
