I am planning on doing the Gigem Gigstar 2000 foot pump conversion...I know this is a bit of an old thread but....
I managed to source the items for the amazing 'GIGSTAR 2000'. I hope that I identified the correct parts below:
Compact Pressure Switch, 2 to 10 PSI Actuation Range, 1/8 NPT
High-Pressure Brass Barbed Tube Fitting, Straight for 1/8" Tube ID X 1/4 Female Pipe Size
I enthusiastically submitted my order through McMaster-Carr excited by the promise of installing my own 'GIGSTAR 2000'. I wondered, "how many sleeps until I can install my new super dooper GIGSTAR 2000". Maybe if I was lucky I could have received this as a small gift to myself for Xmas. But alas it wasn't to be, today I received this e-mail form McMaster-Carr and it didn't even include the word 'sorry' or 'unfortunately' ...
"Due to the complexity of U.S. export regulations, McMaster-Carr accepts international orders only from our established customers. This decision also applies to orders shipping within the United States, because it is based on the final destination of the items. We cannot accept this order or future orders."
Phooey from Australia
I ordered the above Part 3460K21
Compact Pressure Switch, 2 to 10 PSI Actuation Range, 1/8 NPT.
And 2nd part..50745K46
High-Pressure Brass Barbed Tube Fitting, Straight for 1/8" Tube ID X 1/4 Female Pipe Size.. This female end was too large !
Then a Mcmaster sales rep suggested part...44555k125 which I received today , This is also too large !! Anyone have the correct part number that goes with the pressure switch 3460K21 ?
