Electric Supply House
« on: January 12, 2013, 06:20:15 AM »
I need to buy a pressure switch for a Mitsubishi water pump and a small step down transformer for a 120V/60Hz/12W trimmer a friend brought me from the States. I live over 100 Kms. from Korat and have already wasted half a day wandering about so would like a target the next time I come on down. Any suggestions where I might find both of these items. Thanks

My experience is that no shop is interested in ordering Mitsubishi water pump parts.

I don't know where you would find a transformer but the big shop on the ground floor of IT Plaza might be a place to look.

Saf have you ever tried 'Boon Thai Machinery' (as I know them). Two businesses (same family) that order for example, lawn mower parts.
Muggins - they might be worth a try (unless someone knows otherwise).
I'd have to think about how to describe their location though.
Good luck.

For the water pump parts I'd suggest to walk along Chompol Road and its side streets, around Night Bazar, looking for a shop that sells your pump. There must be lots around there. You might also stumble over "Boon Thai Hardware" (as I got the name in my memory) there.

If you can't find your transformer also in one of the shops there on Chompol or at "Amorn" ( the shop in IT Plaza, groundfloor, to the left, seen from Mitraparp, you can try the electrics supply shop at Yamo, located at the left corner of Poklang Road with Ratchadamnern Road, seen from Yamo. The lady there has an excellent command of English, knows what she's got in her store rooms in the back and above, what it is good for and how it is used. Prices are good, too! Parking is possible in their yard or within one block's walking distance at Thaifah Electronic City on the other side of Yamo on Chompol Road, at Klang Plaza Chomsurang or Chomsurang Post Office.
Fun is the one thing that money can't buy

Boon Thai should have the Mitsu pressure switch or will get it.
From the road by Yamoo with Chaopraya Hotel, along the end (S) of Yamoo - go straight almost 1 km until you are about 100/200m before the MAIN road going East to Chok Chai (and West back to the City).
On your left side an impressive building 3/4 stories high is Boon Thai Machinery. Lot of good stuff in there.
