I'm looking for miniature (or just small) solenoid valves that operate
on 12v. Most of the ones I find are at least $90. Is this the best option?

Martin,

goto <http://mcmaster.com> and search on solenoid valves.  Lots of
materials / seals / voltages to choose from.

Is mcmaster still alive?
The last time I called for a catalog, I was told the catalogs are out of stock and they are prepare to close the business. The guy must be kidding me.
I used to buy a lot of stainless pipes from them.

I imagine the person was either kidding, or meant that their regional
office was closing.

McMaster, I expect, isn't going away anytime soon.  They are a big
enough company that if they were having troubles that were bad enough
that customers were finding out about them, then it'd be in the news.

However, they are very picky about who they'll send their printed
catalog to.  They aren't interested in supplying parts as an OEM (ie,
parts that go in products that are sold) but rather parts that are
used by their customer directly, such as to repair machinery, maintain
an assembly line, or build lab equipment.  You can see that they
aren't terribly competitive on price, and don't have quantity
discounts that would suggest they expect their customers to resell
them, or integrate them into a medium to high volume product.

As such, they call each person that requests a catalog and then decide
whether to send one based on the type of customer they expect them to
be - though I expect that order history has a large effect on this
decision as well.

You can see that old catalogs are traded on ebay for more than a few
dollars for something that is supposedly 'free' - they are artifically
scarce, and yet very desirable in some industries.

So he may also have been telling you those things because you are not
their 'ideal' customer.  Or maybe he was having a bad day, who
knows...

* I sat through one of their recruiting seminars and went through the
interview process.  Very interesting company...

We have a huge Mcmaster (and Graingers) warehouses near us on the
Southeast side of Cleveland. I stopped in the Mcmaster, and was able to
fill out at catalog request, a few weeks later it arrived. This was 2
years ago. I have received order several weeks ago.

one disadvantage on ebay is: there is few datasheet, and not always good quality guarantee.

What fluid? (air, water?)
Clippard makes small ones for air and I've bought them resonably from
their stocking distributors.
I just 'built' a pn from this website. $22.05
