    Tap handle ferrule supplier?

    Looking for a source of wholesale tap handle ferrules - the 3/8 16 + 5/16 18 type that screw into the handle and faucet.
    Searched the forum but didn't lead to anything.

    THX!

    This should be it, if I get your drift

    Not quite...

    I've seen the inserts - not the "answer" as the handles already have bolts in them. Here's the visual: http://www.amazon.com/Chrome-Beer-Ha.../dp/B000FOE7RS

    THX!

    best idea

    call taphandles and ask where they get theirs. no need to pay a middle man mark up if you can avoid it.

    You said: "Ask the middle man who is the supplier as you would not have to pay the middleman?"

    Now think about that.

    uhh

    I HIGHLY doubt that taphandles.com makes the ferrules. I can almost guarantee you that they buy them from somewhere. So, taphandles.com is a middle man, the manufacturer is not. So find out who they are buying them from and call them.

    I don't see why that is so confusing...but thanks for the smarta$s comment.

    No " smarta$s comment" at all.
    Middle man is not going to tell you who is the supplier.
    Like it or not.

    McMasterCarr is a great go to site for just about everything. I'm sure this is where most of the retail sites get their parts.
