The Problem I'm Addressing
As I've stated, not only is the Gas Chromatograph over-priced and out of reach for most, its parts alone are out of this world.
Here's just the latest example I found. A NEW HP Agilent 6890 GC Cover G2333-81590 FFD DETECTOR TOP COVER ($399)
$399 for a piece of sheet metal. AND THIS IS ON eBAY!!!
