My goodness these things are expensive!

I'm looking for a 1/4 in NC valve, for water.  And they seem to
be around 40 USD, does it get any better than that?


Thanks

Yes, they do. You can buy NEW ones on eBay. In fact, I recently sold a Red Hat (Asco) brand 1/4" NC, NEW one for $12.70 plus $6 shipping. Look on eBay, and if you don't see one that fits your needs at first, be patient and keep looking - it will almost always turn up in a week or two.

A year ago, I remember looking for valves for my bathtub project from valve suppliers.  Yes they are expensive, especially since I needed it to handle hot water.  Then it hit me -- washing machines, dishwashers, etc have these and are mass produced.  ~$25 got me a new washing-machine dual-valve (hot and cold) from an appliance parts store.  Perhaps you might find what you need in some consumer product.

Cheers,
-Neil.

Another thing i learned from my beer bong project (which required two 3/4" NC solenoid valves) was that if you can guarrentee a min of 10 PSI or so (check mfg datasheet) acting on your valve at one end, you can use really cheap ($10-$15) sprinkler/irrigation solenoid valves. They sell them at any Lowes or Home Depot and are ment to control garden sprinkles and such. They typically come in 3/4" and up dimensions, so i don't know if that would work for your case (it didn't work in mine cuz i couldn't guarrentee a min pressure of 10 PSI) but it's worth looking into.

Another option might be underground sprinkler systems. I don't know the
sizes of the ports, but I know larger installations often have banks of
these valves.

completely foolproof is to underestimate the ingenuity of complete
fools.

       Check surplus sources, you will often find those there for very good
prices. TTYL

Try one mass produced for washing machines. It should be significantly
less than $10 for a double valve.
