Good Morning All
Has anyone been able to buy spare parts for any of Microcosm Units, I have asked them and they said yes and postage would be $5 to which I agreed and asked to be sent a bill so that I might pay , no replies since then. any help would be appreciated .

Hullo Mike....I think it's all in the translation & use an auto text translator for both when enquiring and ordering ...example below


[Hi Jin…could I please purchase some spares for my M8 pump…… Derek]
[你好金
...我可以给我的M8泵买些备件吗?德里克]

I wanted some spare 'springs, balls & seats for my Microcosm M Series pumps.......[resulting spares as per image $15.00 including postage]


Again as previously stated here on MBM in 2010, I find Jin from Microcosm to be an excellent person to purchase from

Hullo Mile.......


Are these diaphragms....approx  20 diameter x 1.2  thickness and one with a  4 hole & one of 6 hole M2 holes?


You could try a 'failed no cost' Nitrile bicycle tube & a Plier type hole punch.......

Its for a P5, 6 hole


I have had a number, of complete units from him over the years, but that has always been a direct buy from Ebay.


Never mind, will investigate your option/idea


Thanks
