OK, just a quickie - I was browsing eBay, and found some *cheap* parts. If any of y'all are even *thinking* about machine milking, these might help (all Surge machines - they're running cheaper than anything else right now, and parts are easily found):

http://cgi.ebay.com/Surge-Milker-Babson-Bros-Stainless-Steel-/220664642959?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3360a33d8f

BIN $29.95 - needs lid gasket, pulsator, inflations, hoses, pump

http://cgi.ebay.com/REBUILT-SURGE-MILKER-MACHINE-COMPLETE-W-ALL-NEW-RUBBER-/360298803903?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item53e37b72bf

BIN $119 - needs pump

http://cgi.ebay.com/New-Parts-Kit-Surge-Bucket-Milker-Dome-Top-liner-/230109670650?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35939aecfa

BIN $39.95 - gasket, vacuum hose, inflations (they also have them for other types of shells, at the same price)

Gaskets are CHEAP - $8.99 on eBay, cheaper at Parts Dept. As I said before, a NEW Interpuls pulsater will run you $89, + $19 for the adapter (if you go with a DeLaval lid, you won't need the adapter - I'm running with what I'm finding, here - DeLaval stuff is pricey!) Hoses - buy at your local hardware store, it'll be cheaper in the long run.

Pump....I found some on eBay last week for about $150, but I didn't check shipping (since we have a pump already...although my darling husband is talking about wanting a new one. :sigh: Not sure why, but....)

what kind of electrical do you need for that? I only have a 750 watt inverter in my shed, and I think the pump would need more than that.
